2011 Acura TSX

Acura has officially unveiled its facelifted 2011 TSX sedan, which makes its official debut at the LA Auto Show today.

On the outside, the 2011 Acura TSX gets a discreet facelift that includes a revised grille and foglamp surrounds of the TSX wagon have been fitted to the sedan, and the changes out back are limited to slightly refreshed taillamps and a license plate garnish. Four-cylinder TSXs got a new set of 17-inch alloy wheels, while a larger set of 18-inch rollers are fitted to V6 models.

Inside, updates include the updated styling of the center console, the darker trim pieces, brightly finished door handles, an updated parking brake handle, new garnishes for the steering wheel and an available LED backlit full VGA navigation screen that generates 400-percent better resolution than before.

Under the sheetmetal, the Acura’s engineers have tweaked the 2.4L inline four cylinder and 3.5-liter V6 engines. According to Acura, both units receive numerous improvements to reduce internal operating friction which help improve fuel economy, lower carbon dioxide (CO2) output and increase engine life.

The updated 2011 Acura TSX sedan goes on sale in the U.S. on November 23, with prices starting from $29,610 for the 2.4L engine with both manual and automatic transmissions, and from $35,150 for the 3.5L V6 version.

The automatic transmission was also upgraded with new programming that helps maximize engine output by allowing for Shift Hold Control during cornering along with “smart shift” functionality that allows for semi-manual operation when in Drive and not just when in Sport Mode as before.
