European Honda Accord to Live on: Brand Boss Says
Honda’s European Accord, better known in the U.S. as the Acura TSX, is under development.
“Right now we’re working really, really hard on development [of Accord Euro],” Honda CEO Takanobu Ito said to CarAdvice.
Based on Honda’s traditional five-year product cycle, the timing would be right for a new version of the Acura TSX to approach production. News of a new car hasn’t trickled out the way information typically does leading up to a new generation, spurring some to speculate that the TSX might be gone after its current generation expires.
Ito didn’t say anything about a due date for the new TSX, but that in itself would indicate that there won’t be a new car very soon.
Unfortunately, that isn’t much of a surprise considering the brand also just introduced its Civic-based ILX compact luxury sedan for the 2013 model year.
The brand’s introduction of the 2013 ILX combined with its new 2014 RLX flagship and MDX prototype, Honda likely has its hands full.
