Honda will never do FR because they just don't understand why it's necessary.

Too late for any FR platform, just as too late for BMW "supercar". The only FR platforms that make sense are BOF for 4x4 vehicles. Honda needs a BEV platform, just as every other car maker.

Accord Couple could be replaced with an Acura model on the Civic chassis. Though Honda wants to make a Prelude to compete with the Supra and that could mean FR as they need a proper FR car to really beat Lexus and nissan in Super GT. S2000 points to FR but there could also be an Acura version with even more power.

2019 RDX will go on the Civic/Accord Chassis so no v6 engine.

Thanks for the info, the V6 accommodation may then be restricted to the Odessey/Pilot/Fridgeline/MDX platform.

Toyota and it's appetite for red meat is doing quite well with the RC-F and LC 500 racing programs.

Honda is known to change their mind whenever they feel like it. New Accord is going to do well without a v6. Some find the 4 cylinder accord to drive better than the v6 minus the power. Then again, TLX will stay on the Civic/Accord platform so it too might stay with a Turbo 4 or maybe even a v6 if Acura wants to make a v6 for that car.

I am thinking they are going v4 for the Prelude and any longitudinal vehicles with a v6 for the best vehicles. v4 can easily be based off a 90 degree v6 and would be very Honda like. Plus, you can package the turbos in the V making it really compact. Though it seems like an electric assisted turbo is the future, but you need a higher than 12v electrical system for it to really work.

Yep a 4 cylinder V engine. Honda could use a 90 degree DOHC v6 engine and just take off 2 cylinders. Compact and with electric assist turbo charger, could allow a fuel efficient, fun, high performance engine.

but BUT bUt... Honda truly knows more about an inline 4 than practically anyone. V4 is for boats.

I wonder how the harmonics balance out especially considering the benefits of a 60 degree versus 90 degree crank angle design as observed in the V6.
