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.
