Acura has dropped plans for a new NSX sports car, but this doesn’t mean the company does not have big plans for the future. And these plans include a new compact car and a new coupe model being added to the line-up.
The new compact model will be based on the next-generation Honda Civic and will be unveiled in the spring of 2012. Acura dropped the compact segment in 2006 when they stopped producing the RSX . As for the coupe model, Acura is considering re-entering the segment on the TSX platform, but this might take a while.
The other models in the line-up will also be refreshed including the TL which will be redesigned for 2014. The RL will never get a RWD V8 version as people might have expected, but Acura has promised other versions instead. A refreshed version will come in 2013. The RDX and the MDX will be refreshed for the 2012 model year and the TSX will get a station wagon version this fall.
