After the recent unveiling of the new 2009 RL, Acura has released a preview picture of its upcoming 2009 Acura TSX.

The new 2009 TSX will wear the same new face from the Acura RL, which will soon become the new face of all of Acura's cars...including the anticipated update to the Acura TL.

As for interior of the new TSX, expect a modified version of the Euro Spec Accord, which the TSX is still based upon.

But of course, expect more wood grains and additional Satin Nickel or Aluminum trim as well to move the interior more "upscale" for Acura Customers. Beyond this...there is not a lot of details available about the power plants we can expect in the States...but those will be released within the next month, before New York.

As Always...Stay Fabulous!

1 almost hoped we'd ignore this
2 anyone else see "Mazda Envy" in the sides (meaning the nextgen Mz6)
3 is there anyone who could talk some sense/taste into them?
4 do Acura threads now count as schadenfreude (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schadenfreude)? < click for Wiki-def

It looks like the Euro Accord with a new grille. And people endlessly criticize the Big Three for badge engineering even though its hard to spot the similarities on their cars.

In honda world, there is only two vehicles, Accord and civic, you can get a spicier version of the accord when you buy ridgeline, but its still the same stew,

I used to have a decent respect for Honda designs. But since the Ridgeline, things have greatly deteriorated. This looks like a Nissan Altima with an aftermarket grille modeled on an enourmous buck-tooth.

The side contours are lifted directly from the 1999 Cadillac Evoq show car and the production Cadillacs that followed. The interior is almost humorously over done. That matte-gray stuff give the look of childs toy.
