Isn't it too little too late? Last time I checked sedan sales tanked and no one is buying them. You rarely see any new Mazda 6 around or any new tlx. Still a few new accords around.

It doesn't really look any different than the current TLX to me... looks like a concept for the TLX

Sportback seems to be the latest trend ... it has the rear slope/coup lines for it but I wonder if it is. I see traditional trunk opening in one of the pics.

It's not super outlandish... it might be close.

I like the look a lot!

Sharp looking car.

Never been a fan of Acura outside the nsx but this excites me.

Not for Honda -- with Honda, their "concept" car already looks 90%+ like how the production model will look when it is released.

possibly living up to the badge and not just diluting it like BMW's M division

being a honda i think there's a good chance for a traditional stick shift (they recently just added it for the civic hb sport touring)

Haha so the CSX Type-S wasn’t diluting the badge?

I mean none of these cars are real performance cars as long as they’re FWD

FWD not real performance?

Spoiler!

The current generation Civic Sport Touring Hatchback has had the 6-speed manual as an option since 2017 in Canada

Give me a break you’re not seriously going to argue FWD is superior to RWD for performance are you? Jesus....

Any performance oriented FWD car is spending a good deal of its tuning and potential just trying to diminish/overcome the fact that it’s FWD.

And yes, slapping the Type-S badge on a Civic Si is the definition of diluting something.

And is a very very fun and forgiving manual too.

Great car to learn on.

give me a break if you're just gonna put words in my mouth, jesus... when did i say FWD is superior?

every platform has its shortcomings

Type-S is just a sporty trim like Si, it's not a homologation like Type-R from the yesteryear

diluting would be putting Si badge on a Pilot/Passport with a body kit
