Suspension is double wishbone front, and a multilink rear that was designed to increase stability and reduce rear end lift during braking. It is also one of the first cars to include electric rack and pinion steering, which is designed to reduce drag on the engine, while being speed adjustable. For brakes, the TSX features meaty 11.8 inch front and 11.1 inch rear rotors with ABS.

The TSX is available in 7 colors: Silver, Gray, Dark Gray, Black, White, Dark Red, and Blue.
Acceleration through first and second gears is almost anemic, with the car's top end making up for it. Like many other front wheel drive cars, a quick 1-2 shift causes breaks the tires loose for a good distance. While turning, wheelspin is present throughout all of first gear, the top half of second, and rarely, the top of third gear.
Steering is sharp and precise, but understeer can occur easily if braking is not sufficient. Braking is required earlier than lighter cars, but is stable and balanced.
At the Sedona drag strips, the TSX likes to be launched with the throttle pegged and the engine bouncing off the rev limiter. On normal circuits, the TSX can be launched at 3,500 to 3,750 RPM.
