SANTA MONICA, California — Acura has released the first photo of the all-new 2009 Acura TSX sedan. Scheduled to go on sale in the spring, the second generation of Acura's popular entry-level sedan will be shown to the world at the 2008 New York Auto Show in late March.

After seeing the RL and knowing that the grill would find its way onto this, I am pleasantly surprised. I really like this car from this first picture. It is an evolution of the current TSX, but much more aggressive.

The old model looked way better. This one tries too hard to be different and ends up looking like a Nissan birthing a Mazda out of its mouth.

Edgier and angular Camry Sport. I will let my fiance drive my 2005. If this thing weighs 3500lb that will be a deal breaker.

Still looks good, IMO. Too bad about that anemic 4-banger, though.

Let's hear it for buttons!

Not a fan. The original was much better looking.

The interior looks pretty good...I assume the US spec TSX will be similar...I love how the Euro press pics show a manual rather than the obligatory automatic we see here...

when there are more buttons on your steering wheel and dash then there are on your computer's keyboard.... there is a problem.

In the above picture I count 76.... that's just the ones I can see.

I guess you'll just have to buy the non-nav model won't you? :AH-HA_wink:

Really I don't see any problem with the button-bashing that happens everytime Honda releases a new model. Owners don't seem to complain. It's just like when you get a new digital camera. The only ones that complain about functionality are the ones that never use it, and with a car you're using it every day.

Well you can buy the 300+ lb-ft turbodiesel model. Or with luck it will be offered with a 2.3L turbo gas motor.

The Euro Accord/TSX looks better than expected. I have no love or respect for the current TSX, but this looks like a suitable entry-level car for Acura.

Well, now I know where all the unused chrome bars from all the old unused Chevrolet grilles went to. Guess Acura is into recycling big time.

Other than the grille, it's quite pleasant, but lacks emotion.

The steering wheel is rather ugly and the number of buttons on it seems like a lot, but the number of buttons on the center stack is not out of the ordinary.

I don't care for the exterior much, but the interior, aside from the steering wheel, is a nice design.

According to Car & Driver, the new TSX is supposed to come with 3 engine options. The standard 2.4L gas, new 2.2L turbodiesel (251 lb-ft torque), and they "expect" the TSX to also come with the RDX's 2.3L turbo gas motor, which wouldn't be surprising (but you never know).

The way they said it, the 2.4 may end up being a Europe only option.

it's a very boring day at work....

:lol:

I had a hilarious one:

1. Meeting at a client.

2. Client arrives 1 hour late.

3. Client sits down and asks me 'so, what are we supposed to talk about today?'.

Speaking of the car, it looks like a slightly fatter Accord (bc to me it's an Accord - No Acura here).
