2011 Acura TSX with a fresh new look, sort of


The 2011 Acura TSX sedan made its debut at the LA Auto Show this week with minor changes from previous year model. The adjustments to the four-door sedan are restricted to just a couple of cosmetic alterations.

The changes for the 2011 Acura TSX sedan  include a modified front fascia and fog light surround, and a new set tail lamps as well. Acura also added a fresh new set of wheel patterns of 17- and 18-inch allow wheels. As for the inside, it gets a revised styling of the center console, the darker trim pieces, brightly finished door handles, an updated parking brake handle, new features for the steering wheel and an LED backlit VGA navigation screen.

No changes to the drivetrain for the new 2011 Acura TSX sedan. It comes with the same choices of both a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a 3.5-liter V6 engines, which produces 280 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque for the V6 engine.

However, the 2011 Acura TSX sedan is now delivered 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway on the four-cylinder engine and manual transmission, and 22/31 with the automatic transmission; that’s a 1 mpg improvement from previous year model.

The revised 2011 TSX sedan will go on sale in the U.S. on November 23. The starting price for the 2011 Acura TSX sedan with a 2.4-liter engine is set at about $29,610, which is not best bang for the buck. With that kind of price, you can get a fully Honda Accord instead. And if you want a 3.5-liter V6 version, that will start you out at $35,150.
