Long Island City Acura TSX | Queens Car Dealer
Sporty, great for the family and with just the right amount of luxury – there is a lot to like in the Long Island City Acura TSX. It’s a solid choice for everyday driving, given its capable driving aspects, refined interior, and ample standard features. The TSX represents the Acura name well, presenting a high level of sophistication and a reputation for superior trustworthiness. The first-generation Acura TSX dazzled with its agile feel, but the smaller backseat was a problem for some passengers. The second generation solves the issue, offering a more spacious interior; coupled with a more fluid, more effortless ride. All in all, the TSX is an intelligent option for a new or used entry-level luxury sedan.
The original NY Acura TSX appeared on the scene in 2004 and was given accolades for its precise handling and spirited 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine which produced 200 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque. Standard features in the first generation TSX included 17-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights, a sunroof, heated power front seats with driver memory, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control and an eight-speaker audio system. Antilock brakes, stability control, front side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags were also standard. As a matter of fact, this TSX was so well equipped that there was only one optional upgrade – the DVD-based navigation system with touchscreen and voice-activated software. The current generation of the Acura TSX was inaugurated in 2009 and brought a more spacious TSX to market, although there was a sacrifice- the 2009 version was only available with four-cylinder power; the livelier V6 was not an option.
There has been a short list of alterations made to the Acura TSX throughout the year’s Satellite radio, heated exterior mirrors and a power passenger seat were added in 2005. One year later, the four-cylinder engine was modified to produce 205 horsepower and 164 lb-ft of torque, and the navigation system achieved more rapid processing and more relevant data. Bluetooth capability and driver seat memory also made their debut. Exterior changes included restyled front and rear fascias and new alloy wheels. While over the last few years changes have been minor, you’ll find that is because this Acura was so well thought out from the start.
