Acura has Civic based Integra Drops name even though its popular and sedan for 2 door RSX.
Acura discontinues RSX, says they are moving to Tier 1 and don't want those buyers anymore
Acura brings TSX, first gen is a hit, 2nd gen doesn't do as well
Acura fails at Tier 1, decides to drop TSX makes up ANOTHER new name
Acura has Civic based ILX, discontinues CSX in Canada. Now says it wants those buyers they abandoned in 2002 or so.
They are clueless
They could have done this 15 years ago lol

Like I commented on Autoblog, I'm sure the interior has no build quality or materials problems (although to be honest, nothing terribly outstanding). My concern is, this is a segment that appeals to places with narrower roads and heavier taxes, like Canada. Since Acura is not a major player in Europe, that leaves the US, a market that still tends to shop larger cars. If Honda really wants to replace the TSX with this, it will be a long uphill battle.
It's fine as a CSX replacement, though.

Interior and exterior look cheap...a Chevy Cruze has more sex appeal inside and out. Engine choices, as Mike and others have pointed out, are simply laughable.
I'd rather have a Camry SE. Sad part is that the current TSX is a decent car so I'm not sure why they had to go **** on a good thing. If this is Acura's future, they need to pack up and go back home, now.
The Acura brand is completely lost. Is this car seriously based on a Civic? You have to be kidding me right? So where are they going to price it at? $25K? So they are going to cannibalize Accord sales. Really smart.
The design is not impressive at all. The rear is to short. It looks like the back end of doberman. And what's up with the swooping character line on the rear fender? It's totally unnecessary.
Acura is going down the same path as Yahoo. So sad.
Looks really nice but DAMN, that 2.4 liter engine it's using is pathetic. Only 200 hp and using United States EPA guidelines, it only get 20/29. For comparison, a similar 6-cylinder in that new BMW 3 series will give you 28/34 and more power and torque as well.
In fact, It's worse than the TSX/Euro Accord that it replaces.
Looks fine, if it was released a few years ago, the interior of a first gen TSX looks better than this! Reminds me when Infiniti released the second gen G20 , looks nothing special and the MPG isn't impressive for 2012 either.

Makes me ashamed to own an Acura... this car is a fail in my book....and I thought that Lexus was slacking and yet here they had me thinking that they were getting on track by finally getting the NSX going again....
The rear styling is shockingly horrible and screams compact and down-market. They added silly Dodge Charger fender hips, last gen Mazda 3 c-pillars, and morphed a no-trunk ZDX hatchback for the rump. None of these three things match or lend an upscale look. The busy dash is also tired, with the last six years worth of Acuras already having the same appearance. I won't even hit on the lackluster powertrain choices.
It is absolutely sad and stunning Acura is still lost after so many chances.
