Acura’s entry-level TSX sedan gains a new Special Edition trim that adds sportier appearance add-ons inside and out for 2012 four-cylinder models. The TSX’s actual performance doesn’t get any sportier, as this Special Edition is strictly an appearance package.
Acura says it added a more aggressive front spoiler, though at a quick glance it’s hard to differentiate it from the non-SE models. The side and rear changes look more dramatic, with unique side sills and a rear bumper with a little more flare. The SE’s 17-inch wheel design is shared with the regular TSX but features a unique finish with polished spokes and a gray background. Topping off the exterior is a “Special Edition” badge.
