The tweaked power plenum grille was unveiled on the 2011 Acura TSX this week at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Priced at $30,470 for a 2011 TSX with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine mated to either a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission, the Acura sports a host of visual and functional changes. We know there’s only one you’re looking at, so we’ll start there. The controversial Acura family grille has been toned down on the 2011 TSX, though it’s far from the subdued – some might say bland – styling on the TSX’s first-generation.
One detail that simply doesn’t come through in photos is the revised wheels. Yes, they appear the same but Acura notes the face of the spokes have a machined edge that gives them a sharper look. The foglight surrounds have been redesigned as well.
In the back are more details that are better seen in person but will likely only be noticed by current second-generation TSX owners. Taillights have been retouched and there’s a new bar of chrome connecting the tops of the taillights.
What you can’t see in these photos, of course, is the increased efficiency of both engines and the improvements to make the cabin quieter.
