I think the Accord actually looks a lot better especially with the different grille.

i dont get this move from acura. the tsx is already pretty expensive for a 4cyl...so i can imagine the price point will go up with the V6....putting it closer to the TL.

the first gen is still the best looking and it should have been the new accord here....like in europe.

and why doesnt acura concentrate on making a sports coupe instead??

I've seen a few on the road and I think it's an improvement over the 1st generation. It looks sportier and seems to have a wider stance. With a V6 and bigger rims, I would consider it if I was in the market for a luxury sedan near the 30k range.

And I'd like to add that the new TL is quite pricey! And the car is just weird looking, not to mention long.

I think it's going to be more than that now. A new V6 Accord fully loaded will be in the sub 30k mark.

they should have put the 2.4 turbo engine from the RDX, and it would have been a big hit from those guys on honda-tech

this does look better than the TL, but the 1st gen TSX still looks better than this. The grilles on the new TSX and TL are hideious.

+2...May I add the SH-AWD as I hate the torque steer from a FWD car.And that engine has alot of potential (Ahem, chip)

But a 3.5 V6 280hp aint bad at all.....I just cant get over the design though

Actually it doesn't need any of those things you just mentioned. Look at the 3 series (which I know is considered the best thing since slice bread for some of the fanboys on here), it doesn't have LSD and people still flock to buy it. The majority of cars sold are RWD with auto. But IMO even if the TSX did come with all those features you mentioned, some on here would say things like "it's still an Acura."

Like the new Mazda 2?
