They killed it b/c the civic si was basically the same thing, acura didn't need it in the lineup.

What are car companies thinking nowadays? Discontinuing cars that have great racing heritage for slow, ugly, box cars

The new concept should be released this season of auto shows.

Rumour is for 2008, the 2.3L turbo out of the RDX tuned more for a light weight car then a SUV. Rumour is close to 260-280hp range. I think this is because everyone needs a turbo and a lot of horsepower in their cars.

werd acura will do better as a luxury brand rather then having a sport compact in its midst it was really a matter of time.

Based on your uncles, friends, sisters, sales managers, president of Hondas words?

There is plenty of room to grow the coupe now that the NSX is getting an AWD V10 in 2009.
For some reason I don't think Honda is as stupid as Hyundai, and just sit on a crappy product while others take off.

Based on the original press release when the RSX discontinuation was announced. Acura is moving forward with its luxury division, the TSX was designed to fill the RSX's void, offering a lower end model available to customers in that budget range.

The RSX was basically only there to attract entry-level buyers to the Acura brand. I've heard that they plan to introduce some kind of TSX coupe, but who knows if that will happen or not.

In the US: Trunk > Hatchback
Explain then:
GTI
Rabbit
New Beetle
350Z
Audi TT
MINI Cooper
Eclipse
tC

All sell very well in the US. Again, that used to be the case but no so much any more.

From a performance standpoint, the tc would be 100 times better if it didnt have the roof + the hatch. It would weigh more like a 03 lx civic than a loaded tiburon

Trunk = stiffer chassis
