Acura’s TSX Special Edition has an MSRP of $30,810 (inclusive of the $885 destination charge) – costing $1000 higher than the base model 2012 TSX. The other Acura TSX models are priced $200 higher. Acura said that the TSX Special Edition took its inspiration from the “fun-to-drive four-cylinder Acuras of the past.”
The borrowed elements include the distinctive cosmetic touches for its interior and exterior, such as a body kit, a set of 17-inch wheels with gray accents, and SE badging. For the interior, its seats have been given perforated suede accents with red backing.
Red is seen as well on the contrast stitching and ambient lighting. In addition, the Special Edition model would be the only 2012 TSX offered with the six-speed manual transmission. Acura offers the five-speed automatic as an option but at no added cost. The TSX SE is available in sedan form and with the 2.4-liter, 201-hp, four-cylinder engine.
The SE will not have the Technology Package, which features navigation, Acura’s ELS audio system, and voice command. The entry-level TSX sedan with the four cylinder engine and five-speed automatic is priced at $30,695 while the top-of-the-line TSX V-6 sedan with Technology Package has a price tag of $39,335.
For the 2012 model, the underfloor storage is increased in the cargo area of the Sport Wagon. This was achieved by replacing the spare tire with a compact repair kit. All these models are now available, except for the Special Edition, which will get to showrooms by the end of September.
Acura may have had its major makeover for the 2011 TSX Sedan, but the brand has more in store for its loyal consumers. Acura brings out the new TSX Sport Wagon for those looking for a compact, stylish yet functional SUV.
Just like the rest of the compact utility vehicles in its class, the TSX Sports Wagon is also spacious and fuel-efficient. It also features a power-actuated tailgate with highly adjustable cargo space. On the other hand, the extra storage area with “lift-over” height makes loading quite a breeze.
Today, consumers don’t have to settle for anything less when it comes to size. With the new TSX Wagon, they get the same value in terms of low fuel consumption as well as the affordability and space of a compact all-around vehicle.
Over the years, a station wagon had always been the smartest choice for a family vehicle. In fact, it’s been this way for almost 30 years now. However this time, more people are after the “smart yet luxurious” compact SUV. This is where the new TSX Sport Wagon comes in.
In the meantime, the 2011 TSX Sedan now features better aerodynamics with the latest underbody panels that suit the “new look” of the front grille and fascia design. Meanwhile, the highly advanced spoke on wheels with machine lip is a standard feature for the 17-inch aluminium alloys. On the other hand, the 18-inch split 5-spoke wheels are only offered exclusively on the V6 variant.
To top it all, the new taillights and enhanced rear area are some of the things you shouldn’t miss in the latest TSX Sedan. The Acura TSX has in fact the biggest share of buyers in all the 30 luxury cars out in the market. Still, the new variant may be the perfect choice for new buyers looking for luxury, technology, and better value. And why not? The new Acura TSX Sport Wagon provides the “value” of fuel efficiency and the “excitement” of sporty driving in one “smart” package.
