The production began in 2003 and the first models went on sale in February 2003. In the beginning Honda targeted only customers in the North American English speaking markets such as the US and Canada but as of 2009, the Acura TSX started becoming available in Mexico as well.

Honda decided to pull the Acura TSX from the market and from the production line in 2014. However the year models that have already been release are doing pretty well even in African markets like Nigeria where the automotive industry currently depends on used vehicles imported from abroad.
