09/16/2011 – TORRANCE, Calif.
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 enhancement.
“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, 17×7.5-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.
