The European Honda Accord has been dressed in an evening gown and brought to Canada as the Acura TSX. Agile and fuel-efficient, it appeals to young adults looking for a reasonably sized, refined vehicle that sells for $31,000 to $41,000. It comes with a choice of 4- or 6-cylinder engines, manual or automatic gearboxes, and 5 different trims, but there are now fewer paint colours available.
