>> You know Honda hasn't given us Accord Wagon in the US for years and damn their eyes for that because I loved that car, not all wagon nuts. Here, however, is the new Accord wagon form as we're standing in front of it now for Europe. Now, notice the face, that's not a Honda, is it? No, it's an Acura in our language. This would be an '09 TSX to you and me but in Europe, it's the new Accord, again wagon shaped. Another headline is an ID tech diesel engine, 148 horse, 258 foot-pounds. Love those torque diesel power plants and even here in diesel sanctuary to Europe, a diesel from Honda is headline-making news. Another tech trick I like is called Motion Adaptive Electric Power Steering, so the fact that it's an electric motor, doing the power steering allows us to tie into the cars computers and if it senses that you're sliding or slipping on the pavement, it can give you almost like haptic feedback like a game controller to the steering wheel to pull you into steering more appropriately for that control-losing situation. Anyway, it's not coming our way except as an '09 TSX and not as a wagon. Oh, well. ^M00:01:14 [ Music ]
