    Acura RLX Concept looks to kickstart Honda's premium brand from the top [w/video]

    There is no sugar-coating the fact that the Acura RL has been a dud since Day One.

Then again, the RL has suffered the indignity of being outgunned by a lower-priced model from within its own portfolio, so we can see how selling one has been ...

    Exclusive: Why did Honda kill its best performance engine?
    1328808540

    The performance profile of the turbo four may have doomed it to being merely a footnote in Honda's illustrious history. When the 2013 Acura RDX launches this spring, Honda will quietly close down a spur line of its Anna, OH, plant. Since 2006, it had been building the 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine used in the first-generation RDX there. These ...
