Acura is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Honda Motor Company. It primarily competes with Buick, Lexus and Infiniti, among others in the luxury vehicle segment. Acura is also well known for being one of the few luxury marques that does not offer a rear-wheel-drive or V8-powered model. With the Acura brand, Honda is credited with being the first Japanese company to establish a luxury division in the U.S.

    Review: 2014 Acura RLX
    Same Book, Different Cover 1384880220

    Earlier in the year, I reviewed a powder-blue Volkswagen Beetle Convertible, and I witnessed a group of high-school-aged girls ogling the car as it sat in my driveway. In my head, I found it to be a funny-yet-fitting scene that I didn't think of again until a 2014 Acura RLX showed up in my driveway. This time around, an elderly neighborhood couple stopped ...

    What Is, What Could Have Been, And What May Yet Be History is largely unkind to losers. That's true in the world of politics and sports, and it follows on with a few caveats in the realm of automobiles. In terms of cars, historic losers tend to be remembered in one of two broad ways. Every once in a while, unsuccessful or oddball models actually make ...

    This Is Not The Acura You're Looking For Mid-level luxury brands have always had to do a bit of leg work to distance themselves from their more common cousins. Thanks to generation after generation of pervasive badge engineering (much of it from the Big Three), buyers can't be blamed for looking at brands like Buick, Lincoln, Infiniti, Lexus and yes, ...

    Review: 2013 Acura ILX 2.4
    1358441820

    Going Mainstream Has Its Privileges Acura's experiment with niche models has failed. Competing in the luxury car business by filling white space with product just didn't work for the Japanese automaker. In place of slow-selling models like its ZDX and quirky first-gen RDX, the mindset at Acura has recently switched to more conventional products with ...

    Review: 2013 Acura RDX
    1342713420

    The Softening Of A Sharp-Edged CUV If you had asked us back in 2006 if the then-brand-new Acura RDX would be a success, our answer would have been yes. And why not? The Acura brand was still in demand, buyers were increasingly clamoring for luxury crossovers and the economy appeared to be in solid shape. And don't forget that the RDX was seemingly ahead ...

    Review: 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD
    1315324620

    Acura's Best Is Still Tough To Beat Acura has been a bit of an enigma of late. Honda's premium marque has endured its share of struggles, with new entries like the ZDX and more established models like the RL falling short of buyers' expectations. Even the mighty TL, which has been Acura's top-selling sedan for years, has seen better days. At the height ...

    Review: 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon
    1309363020

    Euro Accord Makes A Great Estate Station wagons are a bit like free dinners. Your parents appreciate them, auto journalists love them and nobody buys them. It's that last trait that's led to the near extinction of the family wagon, save for a few luxury rigs, a Volkswagen and a Subaru. And why not? Who needs a station wagon when a crossover is just as ...

    Review: 2010 Acura MDX
    1281455880

    Overcomes Corporate Snout with Luxury, Technology and Value To Spare "Any press is good press," so the saying goes. With that in mind, the refreshed 2010 Acura MDX, now bearing the automaker's corporate "beak," should finally be garnering some much-needed attention. And the Acura MDX deserves the spotlight. Nearing its tenth year of production, the ...

    Review: 2010 Acura ZDX is a space (challenged) oddity
    1272556680

    Needless to say, the 2010 Acura ZDX is a peculiar beast. And after a week's worth of testing, we're still not sure what to make of it. %Gallery-92006% Photos by Sam Abuelsamid / Max Abuelsamid / Copyright ©2010 Weblogs, Inc.

    Review: 2010 Acura TL SH-AWD 6MT is a mouthful, not a handful
    1266253020

    When the redesigned Acura TL debuted in late 2008, it represented a substantial transformation over previous iterations. The third-generation model retained the transverse V6 of its two predecessors, but for the first time included an all-wheel-drive option. But while the torque-vectoring Super Handling-All Wheel Drive is an appreciated addition when ...

    Review: 2010 Acura TSX V6 sacrifices twisties for long-haul cruising
    1252511820

    The 2010 Acura TSX V6 is something of a consolation prize. At the 2008 Detroit Auto Show, Acura showed off a new 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel and said it would launch in the U.S. this year. A few months later in New York, Honda's luxury arm showed off the all-new second generation TSX sedan, and we expected to be driving the culmination of the two ...

With the unveiling of a new diesel engine and the revamp of their entire sedan lineup, Acura is attempting to reinvent itself as a credible player in the premium sedan segment.
