2021 Acura NSX



PHOENIX — The Acura NSX supercar couldn’t help but turn heads and draw a crowd whenever I parked. The styling is gorgeous with an exterior design that’s enticingly worthy of praise. No crazy swoops, no melodramatic over-the-top spoilers at the rear or sculpted fins, rather styling that’s astonishingly beautiful, mostly. The snout is large and a bit on the fussy side, the rear a bit heavyset, but overall errs on mimicking the likes of the McLaren 570S in my eyes.

Acura TLX — Bigger and better



By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Acura merged the luxury-focused TL sedan with the slightly smaller sport-minded TSX in 2015 resulting in the TLX, a solid mid-sized addition to the near-luxury sedan segment, but falling short in terms of both performance and luxury compared to German competitors. Now comes the second generation TLX that goes a long way in correcting those shortcomings. The 2021 TLX is built on a new platform improving on virtually every aspect of the outgoing model.

2022 Acura MDX



PHOENIX — The Acura MDX is one of the first 2022 models to arrive in showrooms. And just about everything in this fourth-generation three-row crossover is brand new. Acura is Honda’s premium brand, and has been around since 1986. The popular MDX was first introduced for 2001, and Acura says the new model is in an entirely new class. Changes start with the exterior styling, and continue to the all-new ultra-rigid platform with an MDX-first double-wishbone front suspension, new technology, and more space for people and gear.

2021 Acura TLX



PHOENIX — For 2021 Acura — Honda’s up market luxury brand — has just unveiled the second generation of its TLX “sports sedan.” Better known for its popular MDX and RDX SUVs that outsell its three car offerings nearly 3-to-1, Acura wants shoppers to know that their sedans are an important part of the caliper-badge product offerings. The new TLX is a vehicle that shoppers of premium sedans should put on their consideration list.

Acura RDX — A big leap forward

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

While the outgoing RDX was a rather unexciting entry into the luxury crossover segment, it was long on practicality. But in a crowded luxury compact crossover segment that includes the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Mercedes GLC and Lexus NX, Acura has sought to put more emotion and performance in its new edition.

2019 Acura RDX



PHOENIX — RDX is Acura’s premium compact to mid-sized crossover utility vehicle that first arrived for 2007. With its turbo-powered engine and upscale appointments, it was an enjoyable vehicle to drive but, unfortunately, didn’t catch on with the car-buying public. Later, the second-generation RDX added more luxury and a standard 279-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine. But it was predominantly a gussied up Honda CR-V, sharing the same basic chassis architecture.

Acura TLX — Mid-cycle improvements

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Through the years our favorite Acura sedan has been the third-generation TL (2003-2008), which caught our imagination with just-right styling, a perfect size, excellent handling traits and a hearty V-6 engine. It was a mature interpretation of what we thought a luxury sports sedan should be. Then Acura seemed to lose focus, producing softer more mainstream sedans with questionable styling features.

Acura MDX Sport Hybrid — No compromises

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Gas mileage has become much less an issue with continued low fuel prices across the country. This makes selling the more expensive hybrid versions of cars and sport utilities a challenge.  Acura seems to have found the answer with its newly developed hybrid version of the refreshed 2017 mid-sized MDX crossover.

Acura MDX — First-class family hauler

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Acura has given its MDX mid-sized crossover a face-lift for the 2017 model year including clipping off the chrome beak — a very good thing — and creating fresh headlight and grille designs. Several new standard features are also included in the mid-cycle refresh including cap-less fueling, an electronic parking brake, additional USB ports, and a surround-view camera.
