Acura NSX: The real every day supercar

We’ve been waiting quite some time for a new Acura NSX. It’s arrived, and the early reviews were mixed. Those reviews missed something, because this thing is damn good. Through a combination of batteries, motors, and a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, the NSX producers over 570 horsepower and more than 470 pound-feet of torque. That […]

First Drive: Acura Makes A Case For Sport Hybrids In The New MDX

Three rows of seats and four motors to propel them, this 330 horsepower sport ute is a reasonably economical way to transport six in luxury. The MDX has been around for three generations now, and this one (the YD3) was introduced in 2014. For 2017 the car has received a styling refresh to get rid […]

Review: 2017 Acura MDX Advance

I was loading up this MDX for a family ski weekend trip when I received a text message from a friend. The message consisted of just two pictures; a loaded Toyota Highlander and an identical Acura MDX into which I was just trying to squeeze more stuff than anyone should be brining for a weekend. “I’m […]

First Drive: 2017 Acura NSX

The 2017 Acura NSX will disappoint a lot of people on the internet. People will complain the NSX should be normally aspirated, complain the car is too heavy, too complicated, complain that Japan’s supercar should not be built in Ohio. People will (check the comments on other sites, they already are) complain the new NSX […]

Acura RLX Sport Hybrid: A Surprise Sleeper?

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InW6IB5incg[/youtube] There aren’t many sleepers produced right from the factory anymore. Everyone knows when you’re packing a solid amount of horsepower these days. We managed to find one though, and it’s arrived in the form of the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid. It looks like a mild-mannered premium sedan on the outside. Under the skin, however, […]

Quick Spin: 2015 Acura ILX

I try to write a review of every car I drive, but this is not always possible. In 2015 for many, mostly personal, reasons I missed a few. One of those was the modern interpretation of the classic Integra, the Acura ILX. It’s quiet and it rides well. The interior is very nice and super comfortable, with all the […]

First Drive: 2016 Acura ILX

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMLmfB4mRKI[/youtube] The entry-level luxury market is a hot spot right now in the industry. Strong competition amongst the offerings typically breeds great options for the consumer. You have plenty of ways to get in with an upscale automaker, so deciding on the best course of action is a good problem. Acura has an updated answer to […]

Quick Spin: 2013 Acura ILX

I don’t think it’s wrong to want to wear nice clothes. When I’m wearing items that might be a bit more expensive than my usual threads I wind up feeling better. No, I’m not a depressed person by any means, but good clothes can take me from an eight to a nine. Ten is reserved […]

2010 Acura ZDX

Vincent Van Gogh was born March 30th, 1853. He was a Dutch painter whose work is admired by many today. During his 37 years on this planet however, he was a tormented soul whose work was not appreciated or even looked at. After his death by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, his fame slowly grew and […]

2010 Acura TL SH-AWD with Six-Speed Manual

The film Roxanne, written by Steve Martin and released in 1987, is a modern version of the classic play Cyrano de Bergerac which was penned exactly 90 years prior. A random fact, the original version is actually responsible for the modern usage of the word “panache”. In the more modern version, double-edged-sword Martin portrays the main character […]
