    Hey - wouldn't it be great if the new rage of wagons would include a favorite option of mine: a vinyl-covered roof? I had a Catalina Pontiac wagon like that. It didn't need roof racks (air drag). If I needed to carry something too big to fit inside, I just plopped it on top and strapped it down to the door-frames. Otherwise, a wagon like the one shown by Honda has a lot less frontal area than most SUVs or even cross-overs. The long, slender profile also makes for a lower coefficient of drap, too. Bring them on!

    I woud be extremely interested in this wagon. I don't like SUVs due to poor gas mileage and top heavy handling. The sport wagon segment has been abandoned to BMW, Audi and Volvo. While these are great vehicles, they bring questionable long term reliability and high maintenance costs. A 6 cyl, AWD version of this with Acura reliability wuld be a winner. I hope Acura realizes there are enough of us out there to support an extension to the TSX line.

    I'm in my late 30s and own a TSX '05. Up to 2 months ago I would have laughed at owning a wagon. But with a 5 month old infant and a big stroller I researched midsized CUV/SUV and decided for wagons instead - the Outback is the best. Ready to pull the trigger unless Acura surprises us in the next month or so. The RDX is a non-starter. Most owners regret getting it.

    Late to the discussion - have been harassing my Acura dealer for wagon version after getting TSX with 6 speed manual in March.
    Great car, base sound system is 1st class, comfortable, fun to drive; all that is missing is wagon and AWD.
    Currently have 2 fullsize SUV's, need one for towing stuff (Pilot), other one (MDX) is more car than necessary.
    Downsizing to TSX wagon would make too much sense. Have owned 3 and 5 series wagons in last 10 years - but folks, we are talking $13,000 to $25,000 more in cost. Just do not see the benefit.
    So Acura, get with it!
    And diesel option would really make my day, as long as you go with the Euro displacement and do not pull a BMW stunt and go 3.2 liter rocket motor; when we have 65 mph speed limits and goal is to use less fuel.
