Honda will produce a third-generation Accord Euro

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 28, 2013

Honda will produce a third-generation Accord Euro, according to CarAdvice. There were speculations that the Honda Accord Euro, which is the basis for the U.S.-market Acura TSX, won’t have a direct replacement. But since the Acura TSX and TL are expected to be combined into one TLX model within the next few years, it’s not clear if the TSX will get a new generation.

Honda President Takanobu Ito said that the company was working “really, really hard” to develop the Honda Accord Euro. However he declined to confirm the launch date. But we’ll know soon as the U.S.-market Acura TSX and Acura TL are nearing the end of their cycles if the ILX will still be available together with a TSX and TL, or if a TLX model will lead to the discontinuation of the TSX.

The presence of a next-gen TSX may justify the engineering costs of a new Accord Euro. Last year, the 28,865 TSX units were sold (which include 4234 TSX wagons), falling behind the 33,572 units sold of the TL. The smaller ILX had higher sales than the TL and TSX in December 2012. Meanwhile, Acura’s SUVs (the RDX and MDX) made up over half of the brand’s overall December sales.

At a Motor Press Guild event, Honda spokesman Chris Martin told Automotive.com that the automaker realizes how important the TSX is for the Acura lineup. It’s not yet sure what the Acura TSX’s fate in the U.S. will be but the announcement that there will be a new Honda Accord Euro is suspicious. It’s likely that before a revised TSX arrives, a refreshed ILX will make it to dealerships.
