Honda to unveil new Fit, Acura TLX prototype at Detroit auto show

Honda Motor Co will introduce a new version of its subcompact Fit and the automaker’s luxury brand Acura will show its TLX midsize sedan as a prototype at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month. The Fit’s sales have been pressured in recent years in North America because capacity constraints, said Mike Accavitti, vice president of American Honda at a press event in Detroit this week. That situation will be remedied when the 2015 Fit, the third generation of the subcompact, begins production at Honda’s new plant in Celaya, Mexico, said Accavitti. While the Acura TLX sedan is listed as a prototype for the Detroit show, what is shown will be close to the vehicle that will debut in U.S. dealer showrooms in mid-2014, said Chuck Schifsky, Acura spokesman.
