Car of the day – 2011 Acura TSX 3.5-liter V6 280 hp 4 door sedan 1920×1080 HD

Engine:

The 2011 Acura TSX is powered by a 3.5-liter (3471 cc) V6 petrol engine. This engine can produce up to 280 hp (209 kW) at 6200 rpm and up to 254 lbs-ft (344 Nm) of torque at 5000 rpm.

Acceleration & Top Speed:

The car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in about 6.2 seconds. It can do 0-100 mph (~0-160 km/h) in about 15.6 seconds. It can reach a top speed of 131 mph or ~210 km/h (governor limited).

You can also drive a standing quarter mile (starting from 0 mph/km/h) in about 14.7 seconds at 97 mph (~156 km/h).

Fuel economy:

18 MPG (US) or 13.1L/100 km in a city and 27 MPG (US) or 8.7L/100 km in a highway. Combined – 21 MPG (US) or 11.2L/ 100 km.

The car’s fuel consumption isn’t that impressive, but what you can expect from a 3.5L V6 engine? You can’t expect small numbers, unless you are in the world of dreams. I’d say its fuel consumption is quite nice knowing how fast this car is for just a regular 4 door sedan. :)

Other details:

The car features a front-wheel-drive system and a 5-speed automatic transmission. Car’s wheelbase is 106.4 inches (2703 mm). Its height is 56.7 inches (1440 mm), width is 72.4 inches (1839 mm), and length is 186.1 inches (4727 mm). Its curb weight is 3680 lbs (1669 kg).

This car is known to be reliable and have a overall low cost of ownership. The high residuals for the Acura gives this car a great leasing program for both the Acura TSX 4 cylinder as well as the larger V6 engine.

Competition for this car includes the BMW 1 series coupe, BMW 3 series coupe, infiniti G37 coupe, Mazda RX-8, and the Nissan 370Z.
