Honda announced today it'll debut the Acura TSX Sport Wagon — you can't call anything just a wagon anymore — later this month at this year's New York Auto Show. This will be followed up by a quick trip to the dealerships in the "late fall" i.e. expect to wait until at least October.
It's unfortunate they're going to add a premium to it, but It makes sense to bring it here as the Acura since the TSX already shares a platform with the Euro Accord and there's already the U.S. Accord-based Crosstour. As for pricing, the Honda Accord Crosstour starts at $29,670, just higher than the Acura TSX starting price of $29,310. It's big brother the ZDX starts at $45,495 so we're hoping the TSX slots somewhere in between.
Important details like final information on engines (expect the current V6 and four-cylinder options), transmissions, and styling will have to wait until either March 31st or a convenient leak. Given our recent disappointment with Honda offerings we can't even be 100% sure it'll retain what we enjoy about the euro Accord until we see it.
Just one thing, please please please don't give it an Acura beak.
