Honda Accord Tourer Taxi Cab: You Won't Be Seeing this Acura in the States


While Acura has confirmed that it will bring the European Honda Accord Tourer to the U.S. as the 2011 TSX Sport Wagon in fall 2010 (the Euro Accord and the TSX are virtually one and the same), it's highly unlikely that you'll ever see one in a yellowish finish with a Taxi roof sign. But if you're planning a trip to Germany, you might very well be able to hitch a ride on a Accord Tourer Taxi - that is, if you manage to spot one among all the Mercs.

The Euro-spec model is powered by a 2.2-liter i-DTEC four-cylinder diesel that delivers an output of 150 horsepower and 350Nm or 258 lb-ft of peak torque returning a combined fuel economy of 6.6 lt/100 or 35.7mpg US in the European cycle.

The new Accord Tourer Elegance cab comes equipped with a taximeter case, wireless telephone pre-installation and special brackets for the taxi sign while the station wagon's standard features include an electric tailgate, cruise control, leather steering wheel and shift knob, heated front seats, MP3-capable CD player, dual-zone automatic climate control and 16-inch alloy wheels.

The taxi version of the Accord Tourer is available for order now in Germany with pricing set at €20,690 or at today's exchange rates, US$29,800.

Honda Accord Sedan with same color finish as above with blacked out wheels and some mods at the right places make this a dream on wheels.

The taxi edition from Honda. I have recognized Honda vehicles are opted for those who dislike to meet with taxis based on their own cars. Namely Honda brand is in the same idiom as the BMW,roughly speaking. But recently the development of excellent diesel engines has made this brand one of favorites of taxi drivers,especially in Europe. So as for the customers who set priority on "owner-car" pride,they seems harder to opt for Honda products now,or moves into BMW,Jaguar,Subaru,Alfa-Romeo and Lexus,I suspect.

Which is a sad shame considering that it not only looks better than all of Acura's current lineup, but it's presence would render the ZDX as redundant and worthy of the delight of the free world.

Well all i can say is i dont ONLY want a v6 option. That would be the worst!!!

I would say they should for sure put the K23a turbo in the car with a manual gear box. I know that read that the SH-AWD(or as i call affectionately call Shawd LOL) manual that they had been braking in pervious test had been fixed and was working then they killed the idea.

But if they have fixed it apply the text to the wagon. But none the less, if this came with a k23a turbo and and a SH-AWD and a paddle shift i would be at acura trading in my accord. LOL. But i would be there even faster if they had a manual. I HOPE YOU READ THIS HONDA/ACURA
