  • The 2013 Acura ZDX

    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 suite of safety features that include Forward Collision Warning, and Lane Departure Warning. It also comes bearing a price tag of $51,815 (including the $895 destination fee), and an obituary from Acura. Announcing the discontinuation of the ZDX after the 2013 model year, Acura’s vice president...

    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...

    This Is What An 850-HP Pikes Peak Hill Climb NSX Looks Like: Video

    The 2012 running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb was delayed from its original July date due to the severe forest fires plaguing the area surrounding Colorado Springs, Colorado. Rescheduled for August 12, the event is shaping up to be a memorable one. Purists will cry “foul,”...

    2014 Acura RLX May Be Built In The United States

    A “perfect storm” of market conditions may prompt Honda to move assembly of its upcoming flagship, the 2014 Acura RLX, from Japan to the United States. First, the stigma that U.S.-built luxury cars can’t rival the build quality of Japanese or German models is no longer valid. BMW...

    Acura is out testing its next-generation MDX luxury crossover on public roads and we’ve managed to scoop a prototype running around the Nürburgring and on some of the German race track’s surrounding streets. The new MDX is expected to land in showrooms in the second half of 2013...

    Is The Honda Concept C A Preview Of Acura’s Rumored TLX?

    With the introduction of the 2013 Acura ILX, Acura’s aging TSX now has to compete with a much newer model that’s almost the same size and occupies a very similar price segment. This has led to suggestion that the TSX will be dropped from Acura’s lineup once the current model has...

  • 2013 Acura ILX

    Hey, that's one fancy Civic there! Calling the 2013 Acura ILX a gussied-up Civic is, in many ways, completely fair, but in truth, Acura has come up with a mix of near-luxury style and feel crossed with a sporty-ish sensibility that is almost completely missing from the market at the moment, and that may be where it finds its success. In the late-1980s through the mid-1990, small, sporty mostly-luxury sedans were pretty common items--from the BMW 3-Series (particularly in the E30 generation) to the Volvo S40 to even Acura's own Legend and Vigor, and of course the Integra and RSX. While the...

    Acura NSX Roadster Appears At 'Avengers' Premier: Video

    The Avengers is a soon-to-be-blockbuster movie about a group of fictitious-yet-realistically-dysfunctional superheros. The Acura NSX Roadster, for the moment at least, remains as fictitious as the Avengers' Iron Man, Tony Stark (whose character, incidentally, was patterned on Tesla’s Elon...

    Though it's called a concept, all that's likely to change on the 2014 Acura RLX are the wheels. The new flagship will arrive in showrooms early in 2013 as a 2014 model, but this first look at the car in person at the 2012 New York Auto Show gives us a very good idea what to expect. Powered in Sport...

    2014 Acura RLX Previewed By Hybrid Concept In New York

    At this week’s 2012 New York Auto Show Acura is treating us with a thinly-veiled concept version of its replacement for the aging RL.

  • 2013 Acura RDX
    2013 Acura RDX first drive review

    If you've driven the previous Acura RDX, you know the definition of compromise. While it was, in many ways, ahead of its time, the RDX was rough, balky, and awkward as much as it was peppy, fun, and high-tech. Times have changed. The 2013 Acura RDX doesn't look all that much different from the last...

  • 2010 Acura RL

    At next week’s 2012 New York Auto Show we will be treated with a thinly-veiled concept version of the next-generation Acura RL, which is expected to go on sale before the end of the year as a 2013 model. Two different versions of this new RL will eventually be offered to customers: a regular V-6 model and a gasoline-electric hybrid model packing a detuned version of the advanced drivetrain pegged for the new NSX supercar due in showrooms sometime in the next three years. We were given a preview of the new hybrid drivetrain at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, where it was announced that it...

    Conservative as it is, the 2013 RDX might also be the best-looking vehicle in Acura's lineup--that is, until the NSX returns. Wearing the Iron Beak grille in a completely non-ironic and non-ugly way, the new RDX blends simple shapes, restrained details, and good crossover proportions. These live...

    2013 Acura ILX Live Photos: 2012 Chicago Auto Show

    OK, so it looks a lot like a Civic with Acura's grille and some fancier folds, but Acura promises the ILX will deliver the luxury goods--at a bargain price. While that remains to be seen in our own testing, these photos should give you a better idea of what the new compact luxury sedan looks like...

    2013 Acura RDX Debuts At The 2012 Chicago Auto Show

    Just a month ago, the 2013 Acura RDX Concept was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show.
