Acura will turn its attention to cars after redesigning the RDX and MDX crossovers

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 29, 2013

As you may know already Acura redesigned the RDX and MDX crossovers for the 2014MY and now the American manufacturer owned by Honda is planning to focus on cars. The TL redesign will come next year and will probably be renamed TLX as will also have to appeal to past buyers of the TSX.

For those who don’t know, the TSX is going away at the end of the 2014 model year as the Honda Accord shifts to a global platform structure, which means that there is no smaller European Accord on which to base the popular sedan.

Moreover, Acura needs to axe the TSX as it continues to rival the recently introduced ILX in sales. The upcoming Acura TLX will use a smaller global Accord platform, which means that the sedan will be shrunk. One of the most important changes will be the new Honda Earth Dreams engine, a 3.5-liter V6 developing 310 hp and found on the RLX flagship sedan.
