Hehe, they won't get a TsxAccord at least, the affluent shall not be served by Hondura.

Off with my cutie pie Fit again, slowly of course... Bye bye for now.

I'd love to see the return of the Acura Sport Wagon. Our TSX wagons were awesome, they just needed a little bit more power and SH-AWD.

With that, we would have bought our '12 off lease.

Still have mine. Love it. gonna upgrade the radio this spring.

Lack of power is overstated. I don't expect it to run with my s2000. V6 TSXes I have driven plowed like mad into corners.

As I have said before, I would love to see a TLX Sport Wagon (or an Accord or Civic wagon) with the 2.0T and some form of AWD. Maybe raise the ride height an inch or so to give people a hint that it might be a CUV.

Love my 2012 TSX Wagon...add AWD and rear suspension that protrudes into the rear storage space a bit less and it would be even better.

Would they do a Accord Wagon?

6 years old, and now with over 200,000kms. [125,000 miles]. Not perfect with many an issue, but 580Nm of torque certainly sweetens the medicine, when I have to take it! :)

Yes, the TSX V6s plowed but the TLX with the V6 and SH-AWD doesn't.

So a TLX Sport Wagon with the V6, AT10, paddle shifters and SH-AWD could be awesome.

I suppose a TLX Sport Wagon with a 2.2T 8DCT SH-AWD might work too, but the V6 is a very relaxing cruising engine with an excellent top end when you need it and by now it has been well paid off. Just dump the 9AT.

Ride height wise, I'd make that an option for an "off road" version. OR perhaps make it into an electronic up-down adjustment.

The Acura TLX Sport Wagon with Bato Loco Lo-Hi-Rider attitude.

Yup as I said in another thread, TSX Wagon/Accord Wagon with SH-AWD/i-VTM4 would be my dream Hondura daily driver... with 2.0T obviously. Practical, fun, and sporty. Build one Honda!

Interesting stats!

So if Acura would go from the top a wagon would be next after the RDX.
Perhaps an EV. A bit like the new Audi or MB SUV / wagons they're bringing soon.
Which are related to their mainstream models.
So a RDX related wagon with some higher clearance with EV hybrid drivetrains must be in discussions.

That's good to see but knowing Honda they will release 5 new SUVs models before even considering a true wagon.

My TSX Wagon is my 9th Honda or Acura Vehicle since 1983, including 5 Preludes, a 95 Legend GS, 2002 and 2005 RSX...and I honestly think the overall 'Hondaness' of the wagon is my most satisfying daily driver to date.

Anyone want to make a business case for developing a vehicle with a 1.4% (and steadily declining) market share? Please show your work in dollars and cents rather than emotion.
