I had been considering a base level A4 1.8T for the advantage of AWD here in New England, but as a former Integra owner I am now hooked on TSX (Absolutely love Acura). Can somebudy tell me how a FWD with VSA and traction control will handle in, say 3-6" of snow? My experiences with FWD have never included any type of traction control systems and I am just curious how big a drop in foul weather traction the TSX would be vs. A4. Thanks for the info...this is my first post.

V6 vs 4 cylinder, power vs torque

What is the difference of having a 4 cylinder to produce the same HP & torque as an V6 ?




Does it overload the engine?

v6 will make less noice and yes v6 u wont overload the engine as much as on a 4 cylinder car thats why we see those honda civics making so much noice when they add a few mods to their car..

traction of TSX

Sorry about the delay in responding. A TSX in all but the very worst of winter conditions should be able to get you around just fine with a set of dedicated winter tires. Easy on the throttle and good judgment usually equates to a safe journey. Would AWD or 4WD be an advantage in the worst of the worst? Steep hills that you have to start out on the incline? Sure! But I've seen my share of AWD etc in the ditch because they thought they were invincible using regular tires, poor judgment, and excess speed for the conditions.
