If you’re looking for a special vehicle to use as a family car, you may want to consider the Acura TSX Sport Wagon. You may not have heard of the TSX Sport Wagon, but it’s a cool car: It’s essentially a station wagon version of the Acura TSX, which was offered from 2009 to 2014. It’s rare, it’s fun, it’s practical and it’s getting cheap.
First, let’s talk rarity. While the TSX was offered from 2009 to 2014, the Sport Wagon didn’t show up until 2011. A quick check on Autotrader reveals about 680 TSX models from this period listed for sale, with about 68 wagons — suggesting the TSX from this era was 90% sedans. You don’t see the wagons often, and that’s a good thing, if you’re looking for a family car with some rarity factor.
Then there’s the practical aspect. That one is simple: It’s a wagon. The wagon has 61 cu ft. of cargo space with all the seats folded, which puts it in between a Honda HR-V and CR-V. Not a huge figure, but enough to get by.
And then there’s the affordable factor: These are coming down in price pretty quickly. The 70 TSX Sport Wagon models listed on Autotrader are all priced between $8,000 and $16,000, with most collecting in the middle of that range. That means $10,000 to $12,000 will buy you a nice one — a rare, practical luxury wagon you can use as family transport.
Sadly, all TSX Sport Wagon models used the car’s base engine — a 201-hp 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, instead of a powerful 3.5-liter V6 you could get in the sedan. But it’s still a desirable car, and it would make a nice family car for a wagon lover in search of a bargain. Find an Acura TSX Sport Wagon for sale
