The Acura TS-X, which to date has only been available as a four-door sedan, will add a Sport Wagon in the Fall of 2010, to be sold as a 2011 model. When the Sport Wagon goes on sale in 2010, it will be the first wagon Acura has ever sold in their 25 year history. The car pictured above is a Honda Accord Tourer. Honda builds two Accords-one for North America, and another for Europe, Japan and Australia. That car is sold here as the Acura TSX, and the Accord Tourer is a part of that family of Honda’s. Expect the controversial Acura nose and other styling cues to make their way to the Sport Wagon when it becomes available here.
While the news of the TSX Sport Wagon may not seem terribly exciting, I do wonder if it tells a bigger story about Honda/Acura. We’ve mentioned the unusualÃ‚Â Honda Accord Crosstour here at The Garage. I spent some time reading comments on Honda’s Crosstour Facebook page, and there was an overwhelming response of people begging for the foreign market Accord Tourer instead. Coincidence? Honda would never admit it, but I doubt it. But if a reaction to the Crosstour was enough to convince them to sell a version of the Accord Tourer here as the Sport Wagon, I will be keeping tabs on their North American sales. Stay tuned!
