>> I swear a year or two ago I talked to Acura about this and they were not going to bring this car to the US. Well, a lot has changed, now it's 2010 here at the New York Auto Show and people are in love with wagons again. Here is the Acura TSX Sport Wagon, known as the Honda Accord Tourer in Europe where it's quite successful, didn't know it was going to come here, now it will. Now the name sport wagon goes just so far, this vehicle will not be available with the sportier V6, at least not at launch and any foreseeable future, 2.4 liter inline four, but that's part of the efficiency message here, also. Thirty miles per gallon highway which ties into hitting a low $30,000 price points, still TBD, which ties into the whole wagon thing entirely, which a lot of the car companies think is people want to have a hauler, but not one as big and bulky, fuel piggy, and just kind of ostentatious as a crossover or an SUV. Now, Acura, and I think all of the car guys that are making wagons again, think the logic goes like this: consumers are getting a little more lean, a little less ostentatious and piggy in their automotive spending so they want something that will haul stuff but do it in leaner, more efficient way, wagon versus crossover or SUV. As a result, the cargo space can not be skimpy or an after thought. This is pretty spacious back here. Low flat load floors, you can imagine. This is interesting here, they have removable side panels that allow you to put longer cargo, like a big set of golf clubs in here. Why would you not want more cargo space? I'd leave this one in the garage. The cabin text is familiar, that's a good thing because it's going to have Acura Honda's newer head unit with finally the revised onscreen interface more like HD than their old SD look. And the usual array of surround audio, iPod connections, USB, all of the things that they've had for a while. Pricing as I said, needs to come in around the low 30s and that's what they're saying, but it doesn't arrive until fall of 2010 as part of the new wagon wars. ^M00:02:06 [ Music ] ^M00:02:10
