TSX Outpoints Lincoln MKZ for IVA Win: The 2012 Acura TSX comes closest to the ideal of any Luxury Mid-Size Car. The TSX is 29 rating points higher than the 2nd place Luxury Mid-Size Car – the Lincoln MKZ. Having 80% or more of owners rating a characteristic ideal is outstanding. Achieving a score of ninety-percent is even more impressive. 90% or more of TSX owners rate these characteristics ideal: exterior size, driver’s seat comfort, tires, and safety features. 80% or more of TSX owners find these additional characteristics ideal: interior lighting, exterior styling, wheels, ride and handling, interior storage compartments.
A Few Shortfalls – Some Could Have Been Corrected by Selecting Available Options: The TSX is derived from Honda’s European Accord so it is a bit smaller than the North American Accord. About 30% of TSX owners want more passenger roominess. About 22% want more power and acceleration – a want that could have been satisfied by opting for the 3.5L V6 engine. About 15% of the owners want more infotainment/entertainment technology, but 12% would give up available technology for better ease of use.
