What others say:

“And if it isn't obvious from a first glance, we think that the Sport Wagon is far roomier than the larger, heavier, less useful and mostly ridiculous Acura ZDX crossover.”Car Connection

“This premium compact carves corners with grippy assurance and little body lean. The electronic steering system offers light effort at low speeds but firms up nicely on the highway or twisty mountain roads. The brakes deliver short, controlled stops.”Consumer Guide

“The 2012 Acura Sport Wagon continues relatively unchanged after its introduction in the 2011 model year. The Sport Wagon increases its cargo space by replacing the safety spare tire with a tire repair kit, a gain of 5.7 cubic feet.”MSN Auto-ConsumerReports

“The rear seats feature a 60/40 split design for cargo flexibility while the TSX Sport Wagon features a class-leading 66.2 cubic feet of cargo space - comparable to most compact SUVs.”KBB

“Impressive number of standard and technology features; spacious interior; sporty handling with V6 sedan and wagon; excellent build and materials quality. Button-happy center console; unimpressive braking performance; slightly underpowered four-cylinder.”Edmunds
