The Acura TSX is clearly living on borrowed time as a new report claims the automaker will no longer continue work developing its platform.
Ever since Acura launched the so far only semi successful ILX, it’s been a known but still unofficial fact that the larger TSX is living on borrowed time. Rumors of the TSX’s discontinuation have been swirling for a while now but a new report claims that Honda is preparing to abandon the car’s platform. This means, for all intents and purposes, that the Japanese automaker will no longer continue developing the TSX and future updates, if any, will remain limited.
According to Acura boss Jeff Conrad, the sport sedan will remain in the lineup "for the foreseeable future", but the TSX is also too closely positioned to the larger TL in both size and price. Point being, there’s simply no room left in Acura’s lineup to have all three cars and since the TSX is the oldest, it’ll be the one that gets the axe. It’s a damn shame because the TSX Sportwagon, unquestionably the coolest and last remaining wagon in its class in the US, will die along with the sedan. No exact timetable has been set, but if you’re in the market for a new one, then we highly recommend picking one up soon.
