I could easily see Honda doing a Touring to stave off another year of a redesign. The big question though is would they put the 1.5T in that, or in the Acura version (CDX?) of the HRV? Keep in mind the EX-L goes for around $26K USD, and to make sense at the $30K level for Acura you'd need some significant differentiation. I'd suspect they'd keep the turbo for Acura, along with the nanny driving features (lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, etc.) and probably a higher grade of leather. I'd also expect Acura to get the LEDs, dual climate control, real carpeting, a better transmission, and maybe even bigger tires. So what would be left for a Touring HRV? How about they get the nanny driver, upgraded tire/wheels and an updated nav system and the LEDs.
