A Luxury Saloon with the Perfect Ingredients

Acura has always been a brand statement of natural performance. The Acura TLX begs no different and this year’s iteration comes with a pretty sweet package of powertrain technology including an all new direct-injection V6 engine and Acura’s second generation Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive system (SH-AWD).

The Acura MDX is a Natural Habitat

The Acura MDX sits in between the extremes of clumsy cashflow, but closer towards the lines of expensive extraordinaire. Though priced in the higher end of the spectrum, its outer shell is not the brightest sight of eye candy; neither is its cabin space classified anywhere close to a luxury resort. Rather, its entire methodology revolves around basic concepts of subtle design and organic power in a 7-seater form factor.

Matured Luxury with Youthful Optimism

Make no mistake that the sole Acura brand revolves around spirited driving. But despite the difficulties in retaining that achievement in an SUV package, the Acura RDX still manages to provide adequate interior real estate, luxury looks and feel, and an overall smooth and fun car to drive.

The Acura TLX is a Model Figure of Cars

Generally speaking, you’re either good looking, or very athletic.  Yes, there are occasionally the pretty boys that can also score goals, but that’s when you start to piss off team managers with higher salary demands.  With that being said, cars generally follow the same concept.  In the case of the Acura TLX – it’s more about the looks than athleticism.  Though don’t get me wrong, the Acura TLX still drives well, but not at the level of fine-grain precision of a sports sedan – save that for its Acura ILX counterpart.

A Proper Sports Sedan

Many try, and most fail.  But in the case of the spirited Acura ILX sports sedan, this may just thee car that truly puts its money where its mouth is.  And in addition to its affordable price tag, the ILX surprisingly holds all the quality traits that makes up an Acura – lavish styling, light weight, performance and quality.   Though a rare commodity, the ILX is not the only successful player on the market.  When strictly speaking of a proper mid-range sports sedan, the Lexus IS250/350 series, BMW 3 series, and Subaru Legacy and Impreza series generally come to mind.
