You are in the Acura TSX
What is this discussion about?
Acura TSX, Diesel

I sure don't know the answer; but, if I had to guess, It's because the British Accord & the TSX are the same car; thus they're not faced a lot of the reengineering & production changes that would be required to put it in the Honda.
Whatever the reasons, I plan to be one of the 1st owners when the TSX diesel is avalable. I keep reading a lot of arguments, pro & con, about whether or not diesel pays. In my case, at 55,000 miles a year, it's a no brainer & I can hardly wait.

The TSX is the European Accord and has been sold with a diesel for years.
I just got a gas '08 TSX and will be very interested in the diesel when it becomes available. Maybe there's some way to change out the awful front grille.

I think the European Accord is based on the Civic Platform. The diesel will be easy to install in the Civic. Think I will wait a few years and get the model with the best power to weight ratio. Check out Honda UK to observe the wide variance in Diesel mpg with the same engine placed in vehicles with different weights and aerodynamics.

What I meant to point out was that a calendar year 2009 intro could mean either a mid 2009 model year intro, or as late as a MY 2010 intro. We're already in MY2009 for the TSX only because the new generation got an early start on MY2009.
I guess on hindsight my previous post didn't really offer any earth-shattering insight!

I guess what it boils down to is that Honda/Acura are the only people who really know; and they'l tell us when they're ready
