  • 2014 Acura MDX Prototype

    While it was certainly outshone by the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and even the Ford F-150 Atlas Concept, the 2014 Acura MDX Prototype garnered a notable share of the attention at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. That's remarkable considering the big-name unveilings it was up against, and it perhaps speaks well to Acura's future success with its redesigned full-size crossover. Sporting what Acura calls "Aero Sculpture" design language, the MDX's proportions remain fairly close to the last-generation model, though in every details, and in many of the more important statistics, it's definitely...

    Acura NSX Concept Video Preview

    Acura is slow-roasting the next-generation NSX to perfection, and if this latest concept is any indication, the wait just might be worth it. While the exterior of this latest concept isn't dramatically different from the previous concept car, there are a few key differences. The lines have been...

    2014 Acura MDX Prototype Live Photos: 2013 Detroit Auto Show

    The 2014 Acura MDX, seen here in live images from this week’s Detroit Auto Show, is officially listed as a “prototype.” As with most new product introductions from Honda and Acura in recent years, we suspect the production version will look a lot like the vehicle pictured here...

  • 2014 Acura RLX
    Acura Announces Pricing For Its RLX Flagship

    Revealed in production trim at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, Acura’s flagship RLX sedan will begin arriving at dealers on March 15. To promote the car ahead of its launch, Acura dealers will kick off a test-drive oriented “Destination RLX” campaign in February. Five...

    Updated Acura NSX Concept Live Photos: 2013 Detroit Auto Show

    A new Acura NSX supercar is brewing, and though the concept versions we’ve seen don’t appear to resemble the original NSX in anyway, apart from also featuring a mid-engine layout and V-6 engine, the two cars do have some core commonality. Just like the original ‘New Sportscar...

    Acura Updates NSX Concept For 2013 Detroit Auto Show: Video

    Acura has unveiled an updated version of its production-destined NSX concept, which not only gives us a better indication as to what the final version will look like but also the styling of its interior. You may recall that the previous NSX concept unveiled at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show only showed...

  • 2014 Acura MDX Prototype

    Unlike automakers who show futuristic concepts, only to release production vehicles that look nothing like them, Acura and its parent Honda err of the side of caution. While officially a “prototype,” the 2014 Acura MDX on display at this week’s Detroit Auto Show gives a good idea of just what the brand’s updated seven-passenger crossover will look like. Due in mid-2013, the 2014 Acura MDX, spy shots of which you can view here, promises to deliver a more comfortable driving experience, better fuel economy and a greater sense of style than the vehicle it replaces. The...

  • 2013 Acura ILX
    Acura To Rework Slow-Selling ILX: Report

    Acura had high hopes for its newest gateway vehicle, the 2013 ILX sedan, which was introduced at last year’s Detroit Auto Show. The idea behind its creation seemed logical enough: by basing an Acura model on the Honda Civic, the automaker could lower the price of entry and attract a younger...

    2013 Acura TSX Sport Wagon Priced From $31,860

    If you're a fan of wagons, especially somewhat sporty and luxurious wagons, you're limited to a handful of choices here in the U.S. The 2013 Acura TSX Sport Wagon is one of those choices, and it's one of the most affordable as well. Pricing, announced today, starts the TSX Sport Wagon from $31,860...

    2003-2006 Acura MDX Included In Wide-Ranging Honda Recall

    Honda has issued a recall of more than 800,000 vehicles due to a potential issue that may see the vehicles start to roll away after being parked. The recall covers three models, the Honda Odyssey and Pilot from the 2003 to 2004 model years, as well as the Acura MDX from the 2003 to 2006 model...

    2014 Acura MDX Prototype Teaser: 2013 Detroit Auto Show

    The Acura MDX isn't really a standout SUV in any respect, but we've always had a soft spot for its look--for some reason, it just wears its size well. But now we have to prepare ourselves for a new MDX, as Acura will be showing a 2014 MDX prototype at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. The current MDX is...

  • 2014 Acura RLX
    2014 Acura RLX Video Preview

    Fresh from its debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2014 Acura RLX is shaping up to be a very good attempt to launch the Acura brand to the next level of luxury credibility. You've seen the live photos, and read all of the details, but here, we give you an up-close and personal look at the...

  • 2014 Acura RLX, 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show

    Acura’s aging RL is finally set to be renewed, and in its place will be the new 2014 Acura RLX, which goes on sale next spring. The car made its official world debut this week at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, and like a true flagship sedan it’s the most powerful, spacious, and technologically advanced sedan the Acura brand has ever had in its lineup. The presence and quality the car exudes can’t be seen in these live photos, but the RLX has every right to be called a flagship. Sumptuous wood and leather surfaces adorn its cabin, while the exterior gets a futuristic look...

    When the 2014 Acura RLX hits showrooms next spring, it will come with the next generation of Acura’s connectivity system, AcuraLink. Thanks to new embedded technology and the ability to link to web-enabled devices such as a smartphone, AcuraLink will be able to bring a much broader range of...

    On Wednesday, November 28, Acura will reveal the all-new 2014 RLX sedan to a crowd of assembled journalists at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Since the reveal happens during the show’s press days, the general public will have to rely on media coverage to see the new RLX before the show opens its...

    Acura may not quite have the prestige or the cachet of longtime luxury marques like Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, or even Lexus, but it does have top-drawer access to the most innovative powertrain and chassis engineering developments from Honda. And with Acura’s upcoming flagship sedan, the 2014...

  • 2013 Acura ILX 'Street Build' SEMA concept
    Acura Shows Its 'Street Build' ILX At SEMA

    Acura bills its gateway-to-the-brand ILX sedan as the ideal blend of sport and luxury, but our experience with the car tells us it’s lacking in the sport department. Even with the 201-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (the largest available), the car lacks the kind of thrust we...

  • Acura NSX Concept

    Back in Detroit last year, Acura revealed a concept version of the reborn NSX supercar. During that Detroit show, Acura said a revived NSX would come to showrooms within three years. It looks like we'll get to see the production version a bit sooner than that. According to Auto Express, a Honda executive at the Sao Paulo Motor Show has confirmed the production version of the new Acura NSX will make its world debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in January. The Honda executive also revealed the styling of the production NSX will be nearly identical to that of the concept car. While powertrain...

    Acura Updates The ZDX For 2013, Then Announces Its Demise

    Acura has sunk a considerable amount of time, money and effort into the 2013 ZDX crossover, trying to make the oddly-styled Jack-of-all-trades vehicle more appealing to the general public. The 2013 Acura ZDX will get a restyled grille; parking sensors front and rear; power folding mirrors and a...

    Acura ILX, Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ Do Well In Latest IIHS Testing

    Americans, right or wrong, tend to equate the size of a vehicle with its safety. While you can’t get around the laws of physics, the latest testing from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows that small cars, when designed properly, can be safe, too. The latest vehicles to earn the...
