Great-looking car but ... [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 03-27-2012 20:06

It looks terrific and it would be the version I'd consider yet what we're likely to get if the ILX is popular is a sports wagon.

I just picked up a wide piece of furniture I commissioned and had a tough time making it work with the CSX. Having owned a couple of Integras and an Echo hatch, I miss that sort of versatility whenever I need it, like today. I want my next car to be a hatch and an Acura preferably with four doors. I'm even willing to forego the manual stick and oh yes, I need it to average less than four liters per 100 km. That's 62.14 miles requiring less than 1.06 US gallons.in other words, better than 62 miles to the gallon combined.

I believe there will be such an Acura when I shop for a new car likely in about four years. If it was something like this design exercise, I would be pleased.
