I was really hoping that it would be an option for the Accord or lesser Hondas -- but this hope has been based on 2006 hopes. The new Accord has plumped up big-time. I'm a bit disturbed with predictions that it would be Acura-only. Why should FE come at a price? Seems counter-intuitive.

But yes, the Euro-Accord = U.S. TSX. Too bad we don't get the Wagon variant here. I would trade our '06 on one -- especially outfitted with an efficient Diesel.

Nevertheless, whatever they call it, the new Diesel should add another option to folks looking for FE. Hopefully the TSX won't grow in size like everything else. Released photos show that this model will become larger as well.

Hopefully Diesel fuel prices remain stable, and that cold-Weather issues are controlled.
