New York 2008 Preview: First Official 2009 Acura TSX Photo Released!

After releasing teaser images of the 2009 European Accord and several spy photos of the Acura TSX, Honda has finally released the first official photo of the 2009 TSX.

The 2009 Acura TSX, which is essentially the same car as the European Honda Accord (different grille) is going to be officially unveiled next month at the New York Auto Show.

For 2009 the TSX gets an all-new design that is more evolutionary than revolutionary. It features a grille that is similar to the recently unveiled 2009 RL, although it looks a little less awkward on the TSX. Details were not released with the photo. There has been a lot of speculation about the new TSX, especially concerning the availability of the RDX’s turbo engine and the SH-AWD system. The TSX is also going to be one of the first applications of Honda’s new clean diesel engine.

Stay tuned for the unveiling of the Euro Accord a the Geneva Auto Show next month and the 2009 TSX at the NY Auto Show later next month.
