  • 2016 Acura CDX (Chinese spec)

    Acura today has a thin lineup that has as many passenger sedans as crossover utility vehicles. With only the TLX, RDX, MDX, RLX, and NSX to work with, Honda's premium line doesn't compete in a number of important markets. The most glaring absence is in the raging hot subcompact crossover realm.

  • 2013 Acura ILX Hybrid, New York City, July 2012

    Another one bites the dust. Following the cancellation of the Honda Insight after the 2014 model year, Honda's upmarket Acura brand has eliminated the hybrid model from its entry-luxury ILX compact sedan lineup for 2015. The 2015 Acura ILX will be offered with two of the previous three powertrains: a 150-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, paired with a five-speed automatic transmission, and a 201-hp 2.4-liter four powering the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox.

    Elon Musk & SolarCity Offer Honda, Acura Owners Subsidized Solar Power

    Do you own a Honda, or maybe an Acura? You might be eligible for a discount on solar power at your home. If you think that sounds strange, you're right. Why would a solar company partner with an automaker to provide solar arrays for owners of certain cars? The answer appears to be: market research...

  • Acura NSX II concept - 2013 Detroit Auto Show

    It’s not quite the production version of the new NSX that we were hoping for, but the updated concept car presented at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show today does give us a much better idea as to what the production version, due sometime in the next couple of years, will be like. We can clearly see that many of the sharp edges on the previous concept, also unveiled in Detroit, have been made smoother, presumably for improved aerodynamics. A new diffuser and tweaks to the bumpers are also present. Not only has the exterior been revised but this latest concept also shows us the interior Acura...

    Honda has been building hybrid cars since 1999, but it's taken until now for the company to offer a hybrid model in the company's upmarket Acura brand. We spent three days with, and covered 300 miles in, a new 2013 Acura ILX Hybrid four-door sedan. And we have to say, while we like the ILX as a...

  • Acura NSX Concept

    The stakes are high for Super Bowl XLVI this Sunday. Not just for the New York Giants and New England Patriots, though, but for the sponsors who spend millions on the precious seconds of advertising time during ad breaks. We don't know how much Acura's two minutes are costing to promote its 2015 Acura NSX hybrid supercar concept, but with a record 111 million from the U.S. alone tuning in to last year's Big Game, that's a lot of coverage. Acura has drafted in Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno for the ad, called "Transactions", which follows Seinfeld doing his best to pay for the privilege of...
