In the first press conference of the New York Auto Show, Acura unveiled the all new second-generation TSX which surprisingly is one of the few all new vehicles that has failed to leak to the web ahead of its debut other than a rather revealing teaser shot released earlier this month.

The TSX has been redesigned inside and out to be “more Acura” than ever to continue its appeal in the entry level sports sedan segment setting it up to do battle with the likes of the Audi A4, Infiniti G37, BMW 3 Series. Power will come from a 2.4-liter DOHC VTEC® in-line 4-cylinder engine producing 201hp, which is a decrease of 4hp on the outgoing model, however torque has increased and it also meets ultra low emission vehicle standards.

A great emphasis has been placed on safety for the new generation TSX, among many safety features, it uses Acura's Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure and is fully expected to receive high safety ratings NHTSA and IIHS.

Pricing is likely to be set at a little under $30,000.
