Acura today announced that the upcoming TSX Special Edition will carry an MSRP of $30,810, including the $885 destination charge, $1000 more than the base model 2012 TSX. Pricing for all other Acura TSX models increases by $200.
Acura states that the TSX Special Edition was inspired by “fun-to-drive four-cylinder Acuras of the past,” and will include unique cosmetic touches inside and out, including a body kit, 17-inch wheels with gray accents, and SE badging. Inside, seats are treated with perforated suede accents with red backing and the use of red continues with the contrast stitching and ambient lighting.
Additionally, the Special Edition model will be the only 2012 TSX available with the six-speed manual transmission (a five-speed automatic is a no cost option). The TSX SE is only offered in sedan form and with the 2.4-liter, 201-hp, four-cylinder engine; The Technology Package, which includes navigation, Acura’s ELS audio system, and voice command, is not available on the SE.
The entry-level TSX sedan with the four cylinder engine and five-speed automaticwill now cost $30,695, while the range-topping TSX V-6 sedan with Technology Package will set you back $39,335. The only change to report for 2012 is an increase of underfloor storage in the cargo area of the Sport Wagon, accomplished by replacing the spare tire with a compact repair kit. All models go on sale today except the Special Edition, which should arrive at showrooms by the end of the month.
