  • 2014 Acura TSX

    The Acura TSX is soldiering on into what’s expected to be its last year on the market, so--understandably--there have been few changes for the latest model year. Pricing for the range now starts at $31,530, including $895 in destination, which gets you the four-cylinder TSX sedan equipped with a five-speed automatic. This represents just a $125 price increase from last year. If you want a manual transmission, you’ll have to opt for the TSX Special Edition, which costs $1,000 more and adds a dark leather interior with contrast stitching. Unfortunately, the manual option isn’t...

    Powerball Winner Wants To Buy Original Acura NSX

    The recent $448 million Powerball jackpot was won by a lucky few. One of those few was Minnesota resident Paul White, who took home a share of the prize worth $58 million after taxes.

    If you're excited about Acura's return to the NSX game, you're going to love this: the first video and sound clips of the new hybrid sports car on track. The tiny clip comes to us in Vine's increasingly familiar short form (UPDATE: there's a different video from Instagram now, too), but despite the brevity, there's a lot of value to the micro-video. Just be sure to un-mute it for the full effect. For our full run-down on what to expect, visit our Acura NSX hub page. //

  • 2011 Acura TSX

    With the introduction of the ILX, Acura’s aging TSX has been forced to compete with a much newer model that’s almost the same size and occupies a similar price segment. This has led to suggestion that the TSX may be dropped from Acura’s lineup or perhaps even merged with the TL to form a new ‘TLX’ model. The rumored TLX would essentially fill the gap between the ILX and new RLX flagship, with Acura’s reformed lineup mimicking that of many of the rival makes in the luxury segment. In a report published by Automotive News (subscription required), Acura boss...

  • 2014 Acura RDX

    Acura’s 2014 RDX has been priced from $35,415, including a destination charge of $895. That represents a $200 increase on the starting price of the 2013 model, which was all-new last year. Apart from the price increase, the only major change is the addition of Kona Coffee exterior paint instead of the previous Amber Brownstone. Power for the entire lineup still comes from a 3.5-liter V-6, which is rated at 273 horsepower and matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. The base price nets you a front-wheel-drive model, so if you want all-wheel drive you’ll have to pay an...
