Photos: 2007 Acura TSX

For around 30 grand, you can put a lot more excitement into your life than is offered by the 2007 Acura TSX. But the TSX is a good value with real geek appeal, bringing in a complete set of cabin gadgets for a good price.

Now that Acura no longer makes the RSX, the TSX sits at the bottom of the model line-up.

Because Acura uses two different voice command systems for cell phone and navigation, drivers must get used to two separate sets of activation buttons.

The front of the TSX is the most stylish part of the car, using Acura's logo and trapezoidal grille, which extends to the shape of the headlights.

The interior of the TSX features refined materials and quality construction, but it's not particularly luxurious.

From the side, the TSX looks just like what it is, a mild-mannered sedan well-equipped to get you from point A to point B.

Don't let the dual exhausts fool you--this is no sports car.

The navigation system in the TSX is very good, with excellent route guidance and text to speech functionality that reads out street names.

The stereo's lack of MP3-CD capability is somewhat made up for by the auxiliary input tucked away in the center console.

The touchscreen radio tuner interface is easy to use.

Although the stereo includes full DSP controls, the sound quality of the system is only mediocre.

As on all Acuras, the steering wheel plays host to an array of buttons.

The TSX uses a five-speed automatic, a little primitive for the current generation of transmissions. A much better six-speed manual is available.

The speed and tach gauges look sporty, but this car neither moves fast enough nor handles well enough to justify the design.

The 2.4-liter i-VTEC four cylinder produces 205 horsepower, which ends up being somewhat anemic in the TSX.

The integrated Zagat guide not only tells you which restaurants are nearby, but how good they are.
