Acura Introduces 2012 TSX Special Edition

The 2012 Acura TSX is already on sale, but Acura has one more model up its sleeve. The TSX Special Edition will make its market debut at the end of the month.

Not exactly as exciting and groundbreaking as the new cars and concepts displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the TSX Special Edition will debut at a more humble venue—the 2011 Orange County International Auto Show in California. That show runs September 22 through the 25.

Built on the 2012 TSX sports sedan, the special edition package is an aesthetic package that adds some sporty elements. Specifically it gets a more aggressive front spoiler, 17-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels in dark gray, and modified rear-end and side sills. A "Special Edition" badge is added to the trunk lid.

Inside, the TSX Special Edition is decked out in a black-and-red theme that includes black headliner, red lights and stitching, Lux Suede seat inserts and red seat backing. The package also adds aluminum pedal covers and bright silver paddle shifter plating.

The TSX Special Edition features a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual or Sequential SportShift five-speed automatic transmission

Acura announced the standard 2012 TSX price at $30,695. The special edition nameplate will add $1,000 to that price for a total of $31,695, which includes $885 delivery charge. It will be available by month-end.


Acura Announces Pricing for 2012 TSX Sports Sedan and Sport Wagon

Acura today announced pricing for the 2012 TSX sports sedan and Sport Wagon. Increasing $200 (or 0.6%) across the line-up, the 2012 Acura TSX continues to offer exceptional value and serves as the entry-point into the Acura brand. In addition, a new Special Edition model delivers added sportiness in the form of unique interior and exterior enhancements.

"With a sub-$30,000 starting point, the Acura TSX represents a great value for customers entering the luxury market," said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. "Recently named US News and World Report's Best Upscale Small Car for Families, the TSX is great for families and with a sporty new Special Edition, it now has even more appeal for youthful, performance-minded buyers."

The 2012 TSX Special Edition package consists of numerous upgrades to the exterior including a more aggressive front spoiler, rear bumper fascia and side sills, 17x7.5-inch, 5-spoke aluminum wheels with a dark grey finish and a "Special Edition" badge on the trunklid. Inside, the TSX Special Edition makes use of exclusive seating surfaces with perforated black Lux Suede® inserts and red backing. Unique red stitching and red-lighting are used throughout the interior, and aluminum pedal covers add a race-inspired look. Finally, a black headliner material replaces the standard grey headliner used on other TSX models.

Pricing for the TSX sports sedan starts at $29,810. The new TSX Special Edition, available with a close-ratio 6-speed manual or Sequential SportShift 5-speed automatic transmission, is priced at $30,810. The TSX V-6 is priced at $35,350 and a Technology package, consisting of items such as Acura's award-winning ELS audio system and hard-drive based navigation system, is available on the TSX and TSX V-6 for $3,100.

For 2012, the TSX Sport Wagon now features a compact tire repair kit that allows for a significantly larger underfloor storage area. The TSX Sport Wagon starts at $31,160 and an available Technology Package is priced at $3,650, including a power rear tailgate. Destination and Handling charges for all TSX models are unchanged at $885.3

The TSX and TSX Sport Wagon go on-sale today with the new Special Edition model available at the end of the month. The TSX Special Edition makes its public debut at the Orange County International Auto Show on September 22nd.
