Honda prepares Acura coupe for 2010
According to the latest rumors from across the Pacific, Honda is preparing a four-door coupe. The new model will most likely be based on the highest level of the European Accord, known in the U.S. as the Acura TSX.
The new coupe will be offered standard with a front-wheel-drive layout the familiar 2.4 Liter 4-cylinder engine making around 200 HP. There will also be a Type-S version, powered by a turbocharged 2.3 Liter engine making 260 HP. These engines will most likely be mated to DSG double clutch transmission and the Japanese automaker’s Super Handling-All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) will be offered as an option.
The couple-like TSX will be launched in 2010 and will land somewhere in between the TL and TSX in the Japanese luxury car maker’s line-up.
