Acura TSX Special Edition

Acura recently announced prices for its 2012 TSX sedan and wagon lineup. Compared with the 2011 TSX models, buyers will pay $200 more for a 2012 TSX, regardless of trim level.

The base 2012 Acura TSX sports sedan starts at $29,810, while the TSX Special Edition, which is slated to hit dealerships later this month, starts at $30,810. The Special Edition trim level includes several cosmetic upgrades to differentiate it from the base TSX, but it has the same engine as the base TSX.

Acura TSX Sport Wagon

The 2012 TSX with a V6 engine starts at $35,350 and the 2012 TSX Sport Wagon has a starting price of $31,160. All prices exclude a destination fee of $885. The 2012 TSX and TSX Sport Wagon went on sale last week.

The 2011 Acura TSX is the U.S. News Best Upscale Small Car for Families, an award it won for having the best combination of value, safety scores and interior space in its class.
