Honda is on the verge of launching a new Accord-based crossover but its more upmarket Acura division may also be getting its own versatile model in the form of the Accord Euro Touring wagon. The Accord Euro is essentially a rebadged version of the Acura TSX and overseas is available in both sedan and wagon bodystyles.

Acura is reportedly considering selling a TSX wagon in local showrooms, which could provide it with a worthy rival to the upcoming 2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon and even the 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate.

The information comes from senior manager of Acura product planning John Watts. “We’re closely, closely looking at it,” he said during a recent interview where he also suggested that younger Gen Y buyers are the target consumers. “Boomers, and [the older among] Gen X, who had wagons as kids don’t want one, but the new kids do.”

With many buyers, especially in the luxury segment, downsizing from big SUVs to smaller crossovers and wagons, now may be the perfect time for Acura to launch a new TSX wagon.

  1. Since it seems like little effort ... I say why not. Acura needs more variation.

    Bad stuff?

  2. It's not in the same league as the CTS and E-class Estate. Not even close.

  3. I like wagons, but if they do this, should get an awd version with a V6 as an option, or even the turbo engine from the RDX.

  4. Good for them! This is a beautiful wagon and will probably be a good value for the dollar. I hope that they go through with it.

  5. That would be great, especially with the SH-AWD. With Subaru only producing the new Legacy in a sedan, I’ll be needing something to replace my Legacy wagon in a couple of years, and the Caddy doesn’t really appeal to me. I just hope they change the corporate nose to something more appealing.I have always been a fan of wagons over SUVs/crossovers and I am glad to see they are making a bit of a comeback, even if no one wants to call them “station wagons”
