Acura has begun to drip-feed us information about its updated TSX sedan, which will be formally unveiled at this year's New York auto show. Based on the single beauty show we got today, the styling of the 2009 TSX departs from that of the current model in several significant ways. The front end has the same beak-shaped arrangement that many of Acura's newer models, including the 2009 RL, which was unveiled last week. At the stern, the new TSX appears to have more of a raked rear windshield than the current model. It also appears to forgo the horizontal decklid of the current generation car, in favor of a smoother, more bulbous rear profile.
The new TSX is expected to get Honda's new 2.2-liter i-DTEC diesel engine when it goes on sale later this year, making it the first diesel-powered car from Honda Motor to reach the United States. There is currently no information available on Interior upgrades of the new model, but don't be surprised to see it equipped with Acura's version of XM NavWeather, which has already been announced for the 2009 RL.
