    2015 Acura TLX: Best Car To Buy 2015 Nominee

    The 2015 Acura TLX is a surprising car in many ways. Rising out of the near-premium or entry-luxury segment to prove itself more than just another mid-level manager’s car, the Acura TLX offers a well-tuned chassis and suspension, innovative drivetrain features, and impressive value. As we...

  • 2015 Acura TLX 2.4

    Whatever happened to the Legend, the Integra, or even the Vigor? Acura used to have such brilliant, instantly recognizable model names. Names that inspired thoughts of potential, performance, power, and style. Now, the brand has adopted the alphabet stew that plagues so much of the rest of the luxury car world. Whether that’s for better or worse, there are aspects of the 2015 Acura TLX that remind us of the good old days of proper names—and proper cars. How so? The new TLX is pretty darned brilliant, that’s how. It has, hands down, the best-tuned suspension you can buy for...

    2015 Acura MDX Sees Slight Price Increase

    Time Spent With A 2005 Acura NSX Is Time Well Spent

    I was born in 1980, which means I really came of age in the 1990s. That period was a bit of a sweet spot for fans of Japanese sports cars. It's no surprise then that I'm rather attracted to iron from the Land of the Rising Sun. This attraction has fostered a love of everything from the older Datsun...

  • 2014 Acura MDX  -  First Drive, May 2013

    A young man in Chicago decided it would be the right time to try and steal a vehicle.
