Geneva 2008 Preview: 2009 Euro Accord/Acura TSX, coming to US with diesel

Click the photo for more teaser images of the new Euro Accord
At the recent Detroit Auto Show, Honda showed off their new 2.2L clean diesel engine and revealed that it would debut in 2009 in an Acura model. Although they wouldn't say which model, most speculation immediately converged on the TSX. Prior to the early nineties, Honda sold the same Accord around the world. Since then Honda has designed the U.S.-market model as a larger car specifically to appeal to American consumers. The smaller Accord that the rest of the world gets has actually been available in the U.S. for the last several years as the TSX. The current Euro Accord already has a diesel option and a redesigned version will be debuting in March at the Geneva Motor Show. While the teaser images and video (which you can see after the jump) only show the wagon version we will probably only get the sedan in our market.
