Acura TSX Sport Wagon
New: A longer roof and a hatch for Acura's smallest car
Noteworthy: It's a bit surprising to see Acura offering the TSX wagon to Americans, but building the car is fairly simple. Since the TSX is Europe's Honda Accord, Acura merely needs to mount a new grille and spruce up the interior to add a wagon to the lineup. Leather upholstery, a sunroof, and dual-zone climate control are standard. Acura won't offer the V-6 or
the six-speed manual that can be had in the sedan. Instead, a four-cylinder engine paired with a five-speed automatic is the only powertrain, which should be good for 30 mpg on the highway.
On sale: December
BASE PRICE: $32,000 (est.)
SPECS: 2.4L I-4, 201 hp, 170 lb-ft; front-wheel drive

All right, Crosstour and ZDX haters, here's your wagon. If you don't buy it, they'll stop selling it. Just like every other wagon.
