The new Acura TSX Sport Wagon was unveiled today at the New York Auto Show.
Acura is positioning the TSX Sport Wagon as an entry level luxury utility vehicle, targeting the under-30 demographic, the same crowd that makes up a bulk of the TSX sedan’s sales.
The TSX Wagon is powered by a 2.4l i-VTEC four-cylinder engine paired with a sequential SportShift five-speed automatic transmission. While the EPA hasn’t given its final fuel mileage figures, Acura estimates the TSX Sport Wagon gets 30 mpg.
The rear cargo space has a removable side panel for carrying wider items such as golf clubs. An integrated under-floor bin can be used as a hidden storage area for valuables such as laptops.
Luxury features include a hard-drive navigation system, an ELS premium sound system, leather seats, integrated Bluetooth, power glass moonroof and dual-zone climate control.

Acura has officially announced that the TSX Sport Wagon will gets its North American debut at the New York Auto Show at the end of the month. With the TSX sedan based on the European Honda Accord, the Sport Wagon is simply the Acura-fied version of the Euro Accord Wagon.
Set to go on sale in the Fall, we still don’t know if Acura plans to offer both a 4-cylinder and V6 version of the new model, which adds functionality to the already impressive TSX package. We will, however, be on hand at the New York show to bring you full coverage and plenty of live photos, as well as all the facts on the newest addition to the Acura family.
Official release after the jump:
Acura has confirmed that it will offer the TSX as a wagon starting in 2010 as a 2011 model. Called the TSX Sport Wagon, this people hauler version of the TSX will be based on the Accord Touring model (shown above) sold in Europe. This only makes sense as the TSX was originally brought over from Europe where it is sold as the Euro Accord.
We’re glad to see the addition of this new model as the luxury wagon seems to be making a comeback. The TSX Sport Wagon will be aimed squarely at vehicles like the Audi A4 Avant, while somewhat targeting folks who might look at a Cadillac CTS wagon – although the TSX will be much smaller.
Acura is keeping quiet on any additional info, including drivetrains, but we expect to see the 201-hp 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, as well as the 280-hp 3.5-liter V6. We can’t wait!
