2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon

Introduced to the Acura lineup just this year, the Acura TSX Sport Wagon also makes its way onto Forbes 7 Best Luxury Station Wagons of 2011 List.

“The 2011 Acura TSX Wagon rides on the same 106.4″ wheelbase as the TSX sedan, and weighs just 129 lbs. more (3,599 lbs. vs. 3,470 lbs.). The compact wagon is equipped with a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that sends a modest 201 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels. Fuel economy is rated at 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway, just a tick less than the sedan’s 22/31. Space is generous, with 25.8 cubic feet of luggage room and 60.5 cubic feet of cargo room with the second row folded. Base prices start at $30,960.” - Forbes

2011 Honda Accord Saloon UK Images

2011 Honda Accord Saloon UK

Though the new 2011 Honda Accord Saloon has not yet made its appearance on Honda UK‘s main site, I was able to gather some great photos through their media site. 

Just looking at the exterior shots there doesn’t seem to be much difference from the refreshed 2011 JDM Accord. The vehicles in the gallery all feature the aero kit which comes standard on the Type S and higher models. Both UK and JDM 2011 Accords benefit from upgrades in headlight technology not found on the 2011 Acura TSX. 

“One of the most visible changes to the top of the range Accords is the addition of Active Cornering Lights, which provide enhanced illumination when the vehicle is turning. The light unit on the relevant side will be illuminated when the driver activates the indicators in that direction or turns the steering wheel more than 90 degrees. When the vehicle is in reverse, both lights will be activated to give a good view to either side of the driver.
Another new lighting technology for Honda is the High Beam Support system, which is fitted on vehicles with the bi-xenon headlights. This system is controlled by a camera fitted to the windscreen in the area of the driver rear view mirror. The camera detects oncoming headlights or the taillights of a vehicle in front and automatically dips the headlights onto their normal setting if they are on high-beam. ” – Honda UK For more info on the The 2011 Honda Accord Saloon and Tourer visit Honda UK.

Being released first of the group, it’s possible the 2011 Acura TSX missed out and the newer headlights. Hopefully the newer lighting tech finds it’s way to the 2012 TSX.

2011 Honda Accord Japan

Honda Japan has finally updated its website with info on the 2011 JDM Honda Accord.

As expected the 2011 Accord gets the same refreshed exterior treatment as the 2011 Acura TSX. Aside from the obvious grille difference and clear turn signals, you should notice the Type-S has totally different headlights from the TSX.

Check out the images in the gallery below or visit Honda Japan for more information.

Acura TSX Sport Wagon vs BMW 328i Sports Wagon

Acura TSX Sport Wagon vs. BMW 328i Sports Wagon

Winding Road has posted a nice little comparison of the new 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon and a 2011 BMW 328i Sports Wagon.

While both can be considered luxury wagons, the two vehicles are still very different. For starters the Bimmer’s as-tested price is up about $11,000 over the TSX, and houses a bigger 3.0 L inline-six sending power to the rear wheels. It’s still an interesting read though with some great photos.

Head over to www.windingroad.com to check out the full comparison.
