Acura might just be starting to get its act together. After several years of passable products, the lack of a true top-tier luxury sedan, the elimination of the RSX and cancellation of the next-generation NSX, comes word of some good products news from Honda’s luxury division.

According to a report by AutoWeek, Acura is looking to bring a coupe to market based on the front-drive TSX platform. This would be a competitor to the likes of the BMW 3 Series Coupe and Infiniti G Coupe and comes as rumors swirl that Mercedes will deliver a C-class Coupe in the coming years, and Lexus will also deliver an IS Coupe. It’s hard to believe Acura has taken so long to deliver this model and we just hope they can at least fit an AWD system to the car and if were luxury the RDX’s turbocharged 2.3-liter turbo.

In addition, Acura will also look to add a new compact sedan to its lineup. Acura currently offers a model called the CSX (formerly EL) in Canada, which is essentially a glorified Civic sedan. It has, however, been a significant sales success for Acura in Canada. With Honda set to debut a new Civic within the year, we could expect a future CSX to be based on the same platform and possibly offer a hybrid version.
