My favorite feature of the up-sell is the power tailgate, which lifts the hatch with a touch of a button on the key fob and closes it with another button along the tailgate's bottom

Incredible Panasonic ELS surround-sound stereo
really easy-to-use standard USB port
The 2012 Acura TSX comes with a good set of convenience and comfort features--including excellent audio and navigation systems. A USB port, Bluetooth, XM, and leather seating with heated, powered front buckets are all on the standard-feature list. And while we see the available power tailgate for the wagon as silly here, we'd definitely stand behind the available Tech Package, which brings upgraded audio (ten-speaker, 425-watt) and navigation, plus a rear camera system.
This year, Acura has also added a TSX Special Edition that adds to the four-cylinder model a more aggressive front-end appearance, side sills, and five-spoke polished-finish alloys.As much as the TSX covers the bases, though, it's still missing some extras, like adaptive cruise control, active parking aids, rear seat heaters, or accident-avoidance features--the sorts of items that are slowly trickling down from flagship luxury models.
The 2012 Acura TSX is richly equipped when you add the Tech Package, yet it's not at the tech forefront.
