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 [...]

Acura Strengthens Luxury Sedan Lineup with the 2017 Acura TLX

Acura reestablishes its position as a competitor in the luxury sedan class with the new smooth and powerful Acura TLX. In recent years, Acura’s sedan models have often been overshadowed by the brand’s more popular line of SUVs and the NSX supercar that has been blowing away car enthusiasts. However, in 2015 Acura released a new model of sedan, the TLX. The TLX is a mid-size luxury sedan that has proven to Acura’s closest competitors in this class—Audi and Infiniti— that Acura has the ingenuity to be to a contender. The 2017 Acura TLX has established itself as a daily commuter with remarkable engine-strength and smooth shifting, making it sort of a “diet” sports sedan. The Acura TLX is a great family sedan offering safety for the children and style for the driver. Overall, the TLX is the kind of addition to Acura’s sedan lineup that demonstrates the brand’s impressive diversity in engineering talent. Bringing Style, Strength, and Safety Acura has a reputation for equipping their vehicles with the latest high-tech systems, and the TLX is no exception. As a family style mid-size sedan, the Acura TLX is loaded with the brand’s newest active-safety features, such as adaptive cruise control, [...]

2017 Acura MDX is Revealed with a Front End Make-Over

After the previous model’s grille received some defamation for sporting what people called a “beak”, the 2017 model is redesigned for a more stylish appeal. The Acura MDX has been a fan favorite of Acura customers for a while now. This can be attributed to its similarity in quality to the more prestigious luxury brand cross-overs, while boasting a much more affordable price. However, the last model of the Acura MDX was off-putting to many Acura drivers because of the addition of a shield-shaped front end grille that some say resembled a beak. Acura took note of this and sent its engineers to work reconfiguring the 2017 model. The result is a much more stylish “diamond-pentagon” grille that demonstrates the perfect balance of character and luxury that this car delivers. In addition to new style, the 2017 Acura MDX brings a lot to the table. The Most Entertaining Cross-Over Fitting three-rows into a cross-over without sacrificing style, comfort, or efficiency is not easy to, but Acura managed to pull it off. For a vehicle that provides such spatial capabilities, the 2017 Acura MDX provides a surprisingly athletic ride. The torque-vectoring rear differential distributes torque to the outside-rear wheel, effectively suppressing [...]
