Motor Trend Editor Nate Martinez gives his take on the 2012 Acura TSX Special Edition 6-speed in this First Test review. While Nate is not totally convinced it’s “special” enough, the extra interior and exterior upgrades as well as the optional 6-speed manual transmission are welcome additions to an already solid vehicle.
“Torque can be hard to find at the bottom half of the 7100 rpm spectrum, so calling on lower gears during a hasty canyon charge usually is the norm. Be they calm rows or under-pressure yanks, the short-throw six-speed gearbox consistently proves its mettle — it’s as smooth and clearly gated as they come, with engagements met by assured metallic clicks.” – Nate Martinez, Motor Trend
