Bold and Outstanding Precision/Performance in Acura TLX Model

Acura further establishes themselves as a contender in the luxury vehicle arena by bringing cutting edge innovations to the table, evidenced by the new TLX. Acura makes history with the first Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) system. The P-AWS system, designed to independently adjust the toe angle of the rear wheels, allows for fully independent rear steering. Rear wheels can pivot automatically to as much as 1.8 degrees in the same direction as the front wheels to offer a smooth, stable, and steady lane change. This state-of-the-art design also allows the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels (reverse phase steering) to assist in vehicle rotation for easier turning capabilities. When braking at high speeds, the system aids in changing the rear wheel angle in order to increase braking ability and safety. At lower speeds, the reverse phase steering can aid in reducing its turning circle and maneuvering in tight areas. Utilizing P-AWS system enhances maneuverability and control, creating a powerhouse in all wheel design. Acura TLX Body Structure is an ACE in the Industry The body structure of the Acura TLX is among the next generation of automotive design as it encompasses Advanced Compatibility Engineering [...]

Kelley Blue Book Awards Acura as Best Cost-To-Own Brand

Kelley Blue Book recognizes Acura for offering long-term reliability, low-cost ownership, and pricing below the competition. One of the most important things to consider when purchasing/leasing a new vehicle is ‘will it stand the test of time?’ Buying a new car is making a commitment that has the potential to affect your daily life for many years. Therefore, it’s more important than most people realize to research your next purchase while considering reliability-over-time as a significant factor. Though driving an Acura may not be as enticing as driving one of their more expensive luxury competitors, like Audi or BMW, Acura has established a reputation for quality and reliability for a reasonable price. The brand might not offer too much in flash, but when it comes to getting your money’s worth over the time of ownership, Acura leads the industry. In fact, Kelley Blue Book (KBB) has recently awarded Acura their KBB 5-year cost-to-own gold medal. Kelley Blue Book determines the 5-year cost-to-own award by examining the cost of a vehicle’s projected financing, insurance and state fees, fuel, and scheduled maintenance and repairs. In addition, Kelley Blue Book includes the vehicle’s projected depreciation in value over time. Acura has proven to [...]
