    I saw the pictures and been following the discussion on TOV. I don't think we will get the TLX as the next Accord. It's huge!

    Looks to me like the TLX will be a sporty version of the RLX. If we get either one of those cars, I think it will be under the Legend nameplate.

    Edit: following that conclusion, my money is now on the Global Accord.

    Another idea.

    Acura has confirmed in the past that they are going for a 3 sedan line-up.

    Now, the TLX was never confirmed by Acura. The model name is assumed by the community. From these spyshots and my conclusions from them, it seems that the RLX and TLX (the car in spyshots) are structurally very identical. Basicly the same car.

    Then at the bottom end we have the ILX, a dressed up Civic. Kind of like the Audi A3.

    That leaves room for one more sedan in the middle. Will the TSX live on as the sporty, performance-ish, sedan in the line-up? 1.5 I-DCD hybrid? 1.6 and 2.2 I-DTEC? New gen 1.6T and 2.0T? Type-R? With a coupe variant (RSX/Integra)?
