I am crossing my fingers for the sports4 body! that accord wagon was way too long for my taste. Give me the short overhangs and aggressive styling! IF so I will be in line at the dealerships waiting for this car.

For those who forgot...

Oh, come on! Why do you think Honda shows Accord Tourer in Frankfurt? It IS new Acco/TSX. I has a lot of Sports4 styling cues, it is nice and dynamic, but of course it is bigger, longer, vith more rear headroom. In must be. Only disappointing think is a bit longer front overhang, Audi makes it better.

Sports Four is possibly the rumoured TSX coupe, like the ridiculous thing VW has just announced.

Hope TSX coupe Will be much more dynamic than Spots4 and will have ONLY 2 doors! This 4D likacoupe fashion is terrible.

I myself hope so, I know I keep saying this but I just think back to what Acura said about being unique from Honda and going to tier1 status. It makes perfect sense to me to release the K23T SH-AWD version as the base model, considering the fact that it produces a lot of hp/torque and keeps weight down. Also the engine can be tuned to produce far more hp/torque (260+hp/290+lb-ft) as we've seen in test mules. If they didn't modify the Sports4 body (of course the roof would change, add a slightly more open MDX grill) presto you have the new TSX. Keep the Euro Accord as close to the Accord Tourer concept, add the updated K24, and keep it FWD. Instantly you have two very different vehicles for two markets, as well as having the bases covered for the global launch of the Acura brand in 2010.

check out the video link posted by Turkman, I see some Sports4 design elements; very aggressive windshield, door handles, taillights, size of grill, etc. but its NOT as smoothly sculpted. Perhaps the sedan will follow the Sports4 more closely - cross fingers!!
