Spy pics of a new Honda CUV have surfaced, wearing the U.S-market Accord nose, the Euro Accord Tourer's hatch and a AllRoad-esque ride height. The wagon is rumored to be a development mule, but despite the taped-on fender flares and added length, the body doesn't look half-bad.
This new model could fit in between the CR-V and Pilot in the Honda lineup, and although there's no word on powerplants, the test mule had a rear differential, so AWD is almost a certainty. It is believed that this new AllRoad-challenger will go into production late next year at the Marysville or East Liberty plant and we're expecting to see the vehicle in concept form at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, even though Honda won't have a press conference to show it off. We'll keep you posted, but for now, follow the link to see the pics.

      Please. Just bring the wagon (without the jacked-up ride height).
      I also REALLY hate the USDM nose grafted onto the JDM body (the USDM nose on the USDM body looks alright, but not on the JDM body). I hope that isn't a production thing.

      This is a Euro Accord tourer/"Acura TSX wagon" with the front of the American Accord... I guess what you're getting is an Acura TSX wagon with a Honda badge...

        @ebm14: True, the spy photographer doesn't own Honda or the car. But she does own the rights to publish her photograph, and you don't.

        I'm getting a laugh from the fact that you're mad Autoblog didn't give you credit for this Honda wagon "scoop," when in fact you're swiping the news and images from someone else anyway.

      This will probably be the Honda version of the new Acura CUV. Like The Acura MDX and the Pilot.

      If it drives anything like the current Accord or HR-V, they'll have a winner. Now, bring over the HR-V as well and don't change anything.

      Wagons and hatches (AWD and otherwise) are the new SUV. Clearly the trend is catching on, if Honda is ready to dive in it must be big business.

      Just looks like an Odyssey to me (the old wagon one, not the new Minivan one).

      Looks like a good vehicle. Lowering it down even further to be a real wagon would make it even better.

      And the engine from the RDX is a gas-guzzling disaster. Honda needs to do better than that.

      what is this "AllRoad" that keeps getting referred to?

      no such car exists. at least the linked article got it right.
        • 6 Years Ago
        double idiot.

        i was being pedantic. jackass.

        it is portrayed as "allroad" ... not "AllRoad" like presented multiple times in the article. the linked article got it correct. (as i mentioned.)

        if you are going to do crazy caps... ya know... try to get it *CORRECT*... and correct is "allroad"... not "AllRoad".

        i own an Audi. i am well versed in the line-up. i also spell them correctly. unlike yourself... apparently. and the true idiot is...

      So we disguise a cuv mule as a most-likely much-better-looking sportwagon?

      Or how about we just actually sell the wagon in the first place, recreate a lost market segment, and not waste the extra development dollars? Honda used to pride themselves on cars with good handling/dynamics (aka my cb7 accord that drives like a go-kart, and several others), not this jacked-up-wannabe-suv "Crossover" crap.

      Looks better than the current sedan. Which is not saying much.

      when is that Honda Diesel coming anyhow? did they finally decide that they couldn't build an LNT? Or is it just the current low gas prices/ huge price disadvantage of diesel fuel that has Honda rethinking the game?

      The Dodge Magnum taketh away, and the Honda Latitute giveth back. Probably another great example of a US Company having something cool and not realizing it, leaving it to the Japanese to do a better version. Then again, I guess the Magnum didn't sell. Too bad....
        • 6 Years Ago
        Magnum's shortcoming was that it wasn't big enough, couldn't tow, and that its design wasted space. A mid 90s GM b-body wagon could easily do any amount of hauling you'd ask an Explorer to and even tackle alot of what you'd ask a Tahoe to do. They had room and didn't waste it with raked rooflines and such. If Magnum was a foot longer and had more usable room it would have sold much better. Speaking of Magnum isn't Chrysler bringing the station wagon back into the mix when LX migrates to LY?
        • 6 Years Ago
        It is definitely because of America's hate of the wagon that the Magnum did not kick around for longer. I liked the Magnum a lot. I would like the Magnum regardless of what it looked like actually simply for the fact that you could equip a RWD wagon with 425 horsepower NA. They are a good deal now though :D

        Brenda Priddy noticed, and she doesn't seem very happy about it. Be careful taking stuff that doesn't belong to you.
