    Hey Guys, the TLX is for real. Honda is very tight lip on this car at the moment. The cover comes off on 01/14/2014.


    Interesting bit that part....

    Looks good, I'd be happy if that was the basis for the 9th Generation Accord.

    If what was? The TLX hasn't been shown yet.

    Possibly the best guide for now would be the ILX:

    I WANT ONE OF THOSE!
    :Happy:

    That car simply HAS to come to Europe as the 9th Generation Accord! Yes it needs the right marketing campaign but anyone who says they cannot sell that in Europe deserves and should be shot with $h!t!

    Get rid of the Swindon tin Civics from BTCC/WTCC they're not proper touring cars anyway and get that on the grid.

    I've seen recently somewhere that Toyota Avensis is the only Japanese saloon selling well in the UK. That must be partly due to the fact that it is all over the BTCC grid and often scrapping with Swindon boxes!

    Swindon tin tourer is a joke in BTCC get a proper touring car in there i.e. this as 9th Generation Accord! :Hooray:

    You can say that again nearly everyone working for Honda has a gagging order on them to speak about it.. even my blasted mole won't spill the beans. In the day of social media a rumour can spread like wildfire within minutes around the globe. I just been given the good old :Tea: "I Know Jack SH1T" with a :Wink:

    Re: 2015 Acura TLX to Debut in Detroit, "9th Generation Accord??"

    Can we be reassured by the fact that winding back a few months ago Subaru UK was categorically NOT replacing the Impreza in the UK, yet now shots of the new UK spec Impreza STi have been freely seen?

    Takanobu Ito (sorry if I've spelled that wrong) has been quoted in interview in the Australian motoring press saying that the third Gen Accord Euro (i.e. this car probably) is being readied (just delayed a bit by the Tsunami I assume).

    Can we therefore assume it will be coming to Europe after all?

    Otherwise it will look a bit daft badged as "Accord Euro (though not actually available in Europe by the way)"

    - - - Updated - - -

    Makes you wonder if it is coming here after all otherwise why all the secrecy?

    If it isn't why not just say it isn't coming here. :Unknown:

    I hope you're right. I'd love to see Accord based on that in Europe. Love the front!

    Got to admit getting excited. Hope they make a GT version with DSG and SH-AWD.
