  • 2014 Acura MDX Live Photos

    After a string of spy shots, teasers and an official prototype, Acura has finally revealed its new 2014 MDX in production trim. The third generation of the luxury SUV made its world debut today at the 2013 New York Auto Show, where it was confirmed the vehicle will hit showrooms this summer. The 2014 Acura MDX rides on a brand new platform, though one loosely based on that found in the 2014 RLX sedan. The new platform has allowed Acura engineers to increase the wheelbase of the MDX, which has led to improvements in ride quality and interior space. Length comes in at 193.6 inches, the...

    Acura Recalls MDX, RL And TSX Models

    Luxury brand Acura is recalling certain models built between 2004 and 2008 for two separate recall campaigns. The recall for the 2005-06 Acura MDX and the 2005 Acura RL, relating to unintended braking, also extends to the 2005 Honda Pilot. At issue in this first recall is a capacitor that may have...

    2014 Acura MDX To Debut In Production Trim In New York

    Acura has confirmed that the production version of redesigned 2014 MDX will be presented for the first time at the 2013 New York Auto Show next week. So far Acura has only shown the exterior of its new MDX, which was previewed in the form of the 2014 Acura MDX Prototype at the 2013 Detroit Auto...

    New Welding Technique Helps Acura Integrate More Aluminum In Its Cars

    Acura engineers have come up with a new welding technique that allows them to join ordinary steel components with lightweight aluminum pieces in a much simpler process than traditional methods. The key is a new “3D Lock Seam” structure, where the steel and aluminum pieces are layered...

    Apple's Siri Eyes Free Coming To Acura And Honda Vehicles

    If you own a newer Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 6, you probably already know how helpful Siri can be. Though far from flawless, Siri is like a virtual assistant standing by to answer (almost) any question. Apple has been developing a Siri feature called Eyes Free that takes the...

    Acura MDX Prototye Video Preview

    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...

  • Acura NSX II concept - 2013 Detroit Auto Show

    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 streamlined, the bumpers have been tweaked, and there are some new carbon-fiber exterior trim bits. Most importantly, there's now an interior. We like the plush materials as well as the carbon fiber trim. The overall design is clutter-free, and the shifter has a unique pushbutton design. Acura said...

    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...

    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 Preview: Detroit Auto Show

    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...

  • 2013 Acura ILX

    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, hipper audience to the brand. Word was that the ILX could even replace the aging and slightly larger TSX, but that’s not what actually happened. As Wards Auto reports, Acura sold just 12,251 ILX sedans last year, far short of its 30,000 unit sales goal. To really put that number in...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    New Acura NSX Coming To Detroit Auto Show: Report

    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.
