The willing 3.5-liter V6 under the hood launches you hard at the corner; you brake hard, and the TSX’s big binders haul you down from speed. Crank the wheel around and head for the apex. A slight amount of understeer will want to pull you to the outside of the turn, but with a simple correction and a brief reduction in power, the TSX’s well-sorted chassis will allow the front wheels to bite hard and pull you through. Your exit in sight, a stab of the throttle will allow all 280 horses to come charging out, bringing the TSX neck-and-neck with the class leaders in the entry-level luxury segment. Just like Acura’s cross-ocean rivals from Germany, the TSX is a true sports sedan that excels at making challenging turns fun to master rather than a chore.
