Previews2019 Acura TLX Preview
Since Acura’s compact luxury sedan was partially redesigned for the 2018 model year, receiving the brand’s now-signature Diamond Pentagon Grille amongst other styling and technological enhancements, very little changes have been made to the TLX for 2019.

Test Drives2016 Acura TLX Elite SH-AWD: Seeking a Long-term Relationship

Its performance is exceptional, but the connection between car and driver is more cerebral than visceral, which I saw …
First Drives2017 Acura NSX: A Laser-Guided Missile
I first came into contact with the 2017 Acura NSX back in October 2015 on the track at the Honda Research Centre in Tochigi, Japan. The encounter was brief as it was intense; I was only able to do two laps in it. So I jumped at the opportunity to …

NewsThe New Face of the 2018 Acura RLX
Acura’s flagship sedan never was a sales success. Although it’s technologically advanced, the RLX—and even its predecessor the RL—has trouble getting noticed with its ultra-conservative styling.
