Acura TSX has an uncertain future as Honda will abandon the old platform

According to the latest reports, it appears that Acura TSX has an uncertain future as Honda is preparing to abandon the platform used for the compact sedan. Acura boss, Jeff Conrad, said that the TSX will remain in the lineup for the foreseeable future. Apparently, the problem is that when it introduced the ILX last year, Acura managed to jam its sedan lineup because the new car and the TSX are positioned too close to each other.

Moreover, the TSX is also too close from the TL, while the RLX did manage to grow slightly and distance itself but not by much. The Acura TSX uses the old Honda Accord platform used also in Japan and Europe, while the new Accord that made its debut in the United States uses a new global platform. Moreover, according to Autocar, due to poor sales of the Honda Accord in Europe, the Japanese manufacturer will not keep the old platform.

That makes the TSX a car without a donor platform. Furthermore, Acura is also planning to redesign the TL for a 2014 launch and according to Automotive News the new vehicle will be smaller in order to make room for the flagship RLX. Currently, the Acura TL is company’s best-selling car, while the ILX has didn’t manage to overtake the old TSX. A redesigned 2014 TSX is expected to arrive in September.

2012 Acura TSX sports sedan and Sport Wagon get a price bump

Acura’s TSX Special Edition has an MSRP of $30,810 (inclusive of the $885 destination charge) – costing $1000 higher than the base model 2012 TSX. The other Acura TSX models are priced $200 higher. Acura said that the TSX Special Edition took its inspiration from the “fun-to-drive four-cylinder Acuras of the past.”

The borrowed elements include the distinctive cosmetic touches for its interior and exterior, such as a body kit, a set of 17-inch wheels with gray accents, and SE badging. For the interior, its seats have been given perforated suede accents with red backing.

Red is seen as well on the contrast stitching and ambient lighting. In addition, the Special Edition model would be the only 2012 TSX offered with the six-speed manual transmission. Acura offers the five-speed automatic as an option but at no added cost. The TSX SE is available in sedan form and with the 2.4-liter, 201-hp, four-cylinder engine.

Acura announced that a new version of the TSX sports sedan for the 2012 model year is now available. Acura, which is presently celebrating its 25th anniversary, designed the TSX Special Edition to be reminiscent of the enjoyable 4-cylinder Acuras in the past. The TSX Special Edition will be sportier due to multiple exterior and interior improvements for Acura's entry-level sedan.

Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales, said that the Acura TSX has earned a reputation for having high-revving 4-cylinder engines and a sporty driving nature.

Conrad said that the addition of this new Special Edition makes the TSX “even more youthful and sporty in character, furthering its appeal to performance-minded buyers."

The wide-ranging appeal of the 2011 Acura TSX sport wagon cannot be denied. If automotive journalists were to recommend a single vehicle for America that would satisfy the most people, it would probably be a diesel sport wagon with a manual gearbox. But then, not many Americans like diesels and wagons so this suggestion may not actually be that well-accepted. Honda Motor Co. said that its best bet is its 2011 TSX sport wagon.

That’s because it isn’t a diesel and it doesn’t have a stick shift but it is also a luxurious wagon utility that has a new grille. This wagon is sporty enough and it can rival the German Avants and American Cadillac CTS wagons. But with a starting price of $31,000, the 2011 Acura TSX sport wagon is far more attractive.

The TSX sedan adds four inches to the body and it replaces its fuel-efficient 2.4-liter DOHC with variable valve timing I-4 under the hood. The engine has an output of 201hp and 172 pound-feet of torque to make it race past the highway but then its rivals have more power as they use six and eight cylinders.

The production version of the 2012 Honda Civic is mostly unchanged from the two concepts (the Si Coupe and a 4-door sedan) of the model that were unveiled at the recently held Detroit Auto Show, according to a report from the Temple of VTEC. The report added that the next generation Civic Si will be available with a nearly-identical powerplant to the one that powers the much larger Acura TSX.

Honda has yet to announce the official power rating but it is known that the K24 engine develops 201hp in the TSX.

This means that the Civic Si is expected to have between 200 and 210 hp. This actually isn’t an impressive improvement over the 197 hp delivered by the current Si’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder; however, the new unit will provide a greater torque.

Acura is offering a wagon version of the TSX sedan for 2011. Wagons actually have a very small share of the near-luxury segment in the U.S. and not many automakers produce them. According to Steve Center, American Honda Motor Co.'s chief marketing officer, the wagon is an alternative to SUVs but “without the girth or the stigma and with all the utility.”

Basically, the wagon is a sheet metal extension of the sedan. It has the same hard points as the sedan and even the seating locations are identical.

Because of this, the extension goes entirely into the cargo area. Notably, the TSX gives up four inches of wheelbase to the Audi A4 Avant wagon, but the Acura is four inches longer overall.

Acura's new V6-powered version of its TSX sports sedan is finally ready to go sale as part of the updated 2010 lineup. Unveiled at last February's Chicago Auto Show, the midsize sedan picks up Acura's familiar 3.5L V6 from its TL and RL siblings, which in the TSX is rated at 280hp (209kW).

To handle the extra power, the car has been updated with stiffer suspension and new control setting for Acura's Sequential SportShift 5-speed automatic transmission with F1-style paddle shifters. The V6 TSX also sports unique five-spoke 18in aluminum wheels shod with Michelin Pilot all-season tires.

Dealers have doubts about Acura ever reaching Tier 1 luxury status after officials reported a sales plunge and a decision to cancel rear-drive V-8 vehicles. At the make meeting, Acura officials tried to talk dealers into agreeing that the new plan, which is reliant on hybrids, would succeed.

Dealers would have to wait at least a year for the hybrids to arrive. While they wait, Acura is giving dealers more incentives and higher marketing funds in order to drive traffic.

Jim Smail, president of Smail Auto Group in Greensburg, Pa., expressed his eagerness for Acura to start a sales event in April that will run through July. Each region will have lease and loan incentives that will be tailored for them.
