With Acura widely expected to consolidate its TSX and TL sedans into one model line in the near future, the fate of the TSX Sport Wagon is unsurprisingly in doubt. The long-rumored one-for-two sedan replacement is said to be dubbed TLX, and will sit above the Honda Civic-derived ILX, a model that already encroaches on the TSX's pricing and size. According to Ward's Auto, Acura officials are refusing to confirm that today's TSX wagon – effectively a re-schnozzed European-market Accord estate – is facing extinction. Reading the tea leaves, however, things certainly don't look good – the European Accord itself is said to be on the bubble and may not be replaced.

The TSX Sport Wagon was brought to the US as a niche play for the 2011 model year, with Acura of Canada taking a pass on the bodystyle. Officials said at the time that it hoped to shift 4,000 units per annum, roughly a 10-percent sliver of US TSX sales. And while Acura doesn't normally break out the wagon in its sales reports, Autoblog was able to obtain the model's totals for the last two years: the company sold 3,210 Sport Wagons in 2011, improving to 4,234 units last year. The current 2013 model began trickling into showrooms in December, but some dealers are still looking to clear out remaining 2012 models at handsome discounts.

      I love Acuras. My current fleet currently has two. A 2001 3.2TL and a 2012 TSX sedan. Both are great cars and the older one with nearly 200,000 miles still rides beautifully. With that said, Acura's design and marketing has been shooting itself in the foot lately. That poor foot, there isn't much left of it. So let's see. Starting with the general design theme, that awful hooked beak for a grill. Even though its been tamed a bit, it really needs to go, matter of fact, the entire design team should be given their walking papers. The ZDX was a failure from the start, the designer and whoever approved it should also be fired. Now we have the ILX, another dog. Its been on sale for how long? I've yet to see one on the roadI see a lot more newer TSX sedans. The new RLX, hopefully it will do better than the outgoing RL, but its not likely . People won't spend $55,000 to $60,000 that sort of resembles a Honda Accord. BMW and other luxury makers have 7, 8 and 9 speed automatics. The RLX brand spanking new is introduced with a lame 6 speed automatic. Now there is talk of combining the TSX with the TL. While nothing is official from Acura, this will be a monumentally bad idea. The ILX was a waste of effort and will fail also. Instead, an RSX replacement should have been designed and offers, with new and updated TSX and TL cars when their time came.

      I own a Acura TSX sports wagon and its one on the best cars I have owned gets 27 plus in hard city driving and 37 plus on the highway if they would make an all wheel drive version the wold hit a home run but now it's rumored to be dropping this car. Too bad a thought I had finally found the perfect car company

      It has become difficult to find a nice looking affordable wagon - I much prefer a wagon to an SUV!! When they came out with the Acura TSX sport wagon I drove it - loved it and bought it. The wagons keep vanishing :(. Prior to my TSX wagon I had a VW Passat wagon which is no longer released in the US. I get more compliments and people asking me about this car. I see a bunch of Acura TSX wagons where I live - so to hear it may drop off the Acura lineup surprised me.

      I don't like Acuras, but it's encouraging to see the sales increase over 2 years. Wagons are an attractive and practical option for a lot of people.

      Acura needs to position itself squarely against Audi. They have a fantastic AWD system (SH-AWD) and need to take better advantage of it. Once they figure out a good styling direction, they have the tech potential to be a serious contender. A bit off-beat here, but they had an awesome platform in the S2000. I would have loved to see a coupe version of it sold as an Acura. (Kinda like the Z/G twins over at Datsun)

      One of the best wagons on the market, great value and great MPG and it looks fantastic. I'm glad Honda brought it here for our markets.

      The TSX IS AN AWESOME SEDAN,AND JUST AS AWESOME WAGON. Honda need to develop an Acura TLX wagon to replace this TSX with for next year...

      Drop in the V6 and 6 speed auto for its final year without increasing it's price too much and I'll buy one.

        Drop in a DI version of the same 2.4 and a 6 speed auto for its final year and I'll buy one. Actually, I might just buy one anyway.

      Another reason why foreign manufacturers do no bring wagons over anymore, and you guys still whine why Audi won't bring the RS4 and 6 wagons over? It's real simple they just don't sell, just like manuals its a very tiny group of customers who buy these.
