Thumbs up Spotted -All new Honda Civic 2010-11

Hi Guys,

While driving to work I spotted this car, looks like New Honda Civic. The car was without camouflage but no badging. I tried to look at Honda Global site and got some pictures for comparison from there.

The Guy was trying to race away but poor chap didnt realize that I had my Outtie with me and all the expressway .

(Picture courtesy for last 3 pics: Honda global site).

Nice find, but even this will be priced costly :(

Nope. This isn't the new Civic.

It's the Acura TSX which will be launched as the Accord diesel as rumor has it.

I have seen this model in Canada. The current Civic or probably the previous one there looks likes this. I don't like the tail lamps. The current dual round ones look good - In Canada, Acura has the dual tail lamps like the Indian Civic.

This is not Civic. It is the Accord Euro (originally made for Japan & European markets). What we get in India is the US- model Accord. Honda Accord (Japan and Europe eighth generation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is the same euro spec Accord which Honda is using to test diesel engines in India. This is the dedicated thread. This car is also sold as Acura TSX in United States.

yup, correct. This is the Acura and sold for a premium over all honda models including the accord in the US. Acura is to honda what lexus is to toyota & talking about that guy trying to race you, dont know what specs did that particular car which you spotted have but some Acuras are pretty powerful
