The Acura Integra Could Return to Racing

Acura would love to hit the track with the new Integra, but the decision falls in someone else’s lap

Acura just revealed the new 2023 Integra, marking the name’s return to the market in nearly two decades (2006, to be specific), but what happens next? Well, if Acura has its way, it’ll be putting the Integra back on the racetrack yet again, but it’s not entirely up to Acura, and we’re talking about cross-company politics here.

Acura's Upcoming MDX Type S Comes at a Very Steep Cost

Acura’s Upcoming MDX Type S Comes at a Very Steep Cost

Acura, do you really think this will go over well with the Type S purists? It had better be good

The MDX has always been a solid yet unpopular option in the booming SUV market ever since it launched. Even though it is decent to look at, decent to drive, and more than competitive with its rivals from Lexus and the Germans. So, is making a sporty version going to change anything, and is it diluting the Type S name? Acura just gave us some extra details on exclusive features, release times, and more on the new MDX Type S, and it’s time that we find out.

2022 Acura ILX

2022 Acura ILX

The company’s smallest compact sedan rolls into another year without any noticeable upgrades.

Since the 2013 model year, the ILX has come a long way without the need of introducing a new generation. But the 2022 model year is just as same as the2019 facelift which makes no sense. However, it is the cheapest Acura to wear its expensive badging and in our opinion, it is still a good-looking car. So what might be the things that could have been better?

The Nostalgia Lingers As Acura Exposes The New Integra Piece by Piece

Yeah, the new Integra will have that six-speed manual, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

As you already know, The Acura Integra is making a comeback. And based on the very first teaser, we know it’ll feature a unique blend of Civic Type R, Acura NSX, and typical Acura DNA. More recently we learned that it’s going to be a real-life hatchback as the universe intended, but outside of this, the bulk of what makes up the new Acura Integra is a bit of a mystery. Now, thanks to Acura’s most recent teaser (and tribute to previous models, including the RSX) we know it’ll feature a six-speed manual transmission, again, as the universe intended.

The Acura TLX goes against Itself in this three-generation drag Race. Which Generation will take the Win?

When a new car model comes out, it’s always interesting to see how it stacks up against its older generations. New models should be better in every aspect compared to their previous iterations, but with ever-stringent emissions regulations, is it really possible?

2021 Acura RDX PMC Edition

2021 Acura RDX PMC Edition

Offered in NSX Hybrid’s orange hue, the PMC Edition is priced well for the stuff on offer and is limited to less than 400 examples

Acura has introduced the PMC Edition of its best-selling SUV, the RDX. The RDX was introduced back in 2006 as a spiritual successor to the MDX, which went to take bigger roles in the portfolio, quite literally. The RDX debuted as a premium entry-level crossover and is an important product for Acura. Initially, it was built on the same platform that underpinned the Honda Civic and the CR-V, but the third-generation introduced in 2018 as a 2019 model year SUV and was based on a new platform. It has been the best-selling SUV for Acura in the last two years, so, keeping it fresh is imperative.

The company has introduced the PMC Edition of the SUV in Thermal Orange shade that is reminiscent of the NSX Hybrid supercar. And the price? $52,995 including destination charges. Is this a steal deal?

Seven years old as of 2020, the third-generation Acura MDX is on its way out. A much-improved fourth-gen model is underway for an October 14 unveiling, but the SUV we’re going to see later this week is a prototype of the upcoming production model.

Acura just unveiled images and details of the new MDX’s interior and it all looks very promising.

Let’s have a closer look below.

2021 Acura RDX PMC Edition

2021 Acura RDX PMC Edition

Automaker’s top-selling crossover gets an exclusive paint finish, among other new goodies

Four months after unveiling the TLX PMC Edition, Acura is giving the same special edition treatment to its RDX crossover. Dubbed the RDX PMC Edition, the special edition crossover benefits from the same exclusive additions Acura gave to the TLX. That includes the Thermal Orange Pearl paint finish that’s arguably one of the best colors you can get in the market. The RDX PMC Edition now occupies the range-topping slot in the lineup, combining the two trims sitting underneath it — the A-Spec and Advance Package — into one model. Befitting its status as a top-of-the-line special edition model, Acura is limiting the production of the special edition crossover to just 360 units, all of which are earmarked for the North American market. Each unit of the RDX PMC will carry a sticker price of “in the low $50,000,” according to Acura.

The 2021 Acura TLX Type-S Really Could Be the Dominate Compact Sports Sedan

The 2021 Acura TLX Type-S Really Could Be the Dominate Compact Sports Sedan

With 355 Horsepower, the 2021 Acura TLX Type-S Will Be a Strong Competitor

When Acura revealed the2021 TLX luxury sports sedan, we came right out and said that BMW and Mercedes should worry about it. In fact, you could even argue that Cadillac and Audi should worry too, despite the fact that the former is abandoning fuel-driven performance for a new naming structure and all-electric future. Well, Acura has added even more evidence that certain brands should worry with news that the 2021 Acura TLX Type-S will feature a pure-driven V-6 heart that’s good for 355 horsepower. Even better yet, we’ll see a near-production prototype in special livery serve as a pace car at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on August 30, 2020!

The Future of Acura Relies Heavily On Its Past, And That's a Very Good Thing

The Future of Acura Relies Heavily On Its Past, And That’s a Very Good Thing

Acura hit the market hard when it introduced the Integra, Legend, and first-generation NSX. The late 1980s and the 1990s represented a time when Acura was about little more than producing performance cars that looked good and felt comfortable. By the time the 2000s hit, however, the company fell into a funk that, at one time, could have pushed the company to the brink of destruction. Now, at just 34 years old, the Acura brand is looking to its roots for guidance as it looks forward. We’re here to tell you that it’s a very good thing, and the company is already several steps into its new master plan.

Is Acura’s Plan for a New Compact Type S Sedan a Hint That The Integra Name Could Make a Comeback?

Acura is aiming for the sky, and a new compact sedan with a type S badge is part of the plan

Acura got us all excited with the new TLX sedan,, which is now available in a high-performance Type S trim fitted with a twin-turbo V-6 engine that should generate well in excess of 300 horsepower. But there’s more good news coming from a leaked dealership video that talks about a Type S version of the new MDX crossover. Acura is also set to launch a "new compact sedan" in Type S spec by 2022. This could also mean that the Integra could also make a comeback soon.

The 2021 Acura TLX Is a Luxury Sports Sedan that BMW and Mercedes Should Worry About

It comes with a new high-performance V-6 engine

Introduced in 2014 as a replacement for both the TL and the TSX, the TLX is Acura’s answer to the highly popular BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Audi A4. But even though it was well-received in the U.S., it never managed to outsell its competitors. Acura is now looking to improve on that with the second-generation TLX, and based on its looks, technology, and power, Honda’s premium division should finally give BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi a run for their money. Let’s find out more about that below.

2019 Acura TLX PMC Edition

2019 Acura TLX PMC Edition

It’s built in the same factory as the NSX supercar

The Acura TLX PMC Edition is a special-edition version of the premium company’s compact sedan. Unveiled at the 2019 New York Auto Show, not long before the first-generation TLX is set to go out of production, the PMC Edition is more than just a limited-edition car with a few extra features.

Combining the premium interior features of the Advance Package and the sporty exterior elements of the A-Spec line, the TLX PMC Edition stands out among its siblings and climbs at the top of the TLX lineup. The first vehicle to be part of the PMC Edition line, the TLX will soon be followed by an MDX crossover with similar features. Let’s find out what makes the PMC Edition stand out.

For $695 Hondata Will Give your 2019 Acura RDX the Mid-Range Torque it Deserves

For $695 Hondata Will Give your 2019 Acura RDX the Mid-Range Torque it Deserves

Peak torque and power also see an increase with both Stage 1 and Stage 2 tunes

Acura revamped theRDX last year and gave it a more aggressive face coupled with a sporty profile. All that is great, but the new car is lacking when it comes to mid-range torque. That’s where Hondata jumps in with its Flashpro system that gives you the ability to extract 45 more pound-feet of torque at the peak of the curve over the 280 you get from Acura.

Mid-range torque is a very important aspect, especially when we’re talking about SUVs. The RDX is Acura’s compact crossover offering and, while it does offer 28 pound-feet of torque more than the previous RDX with its 3.5-liter V-6, there’s still room for improvement. Hondata has already released ECU kits for the Civic and Accord, and now it’s the RDX’s time to shine with extra torque and, also, more power across the band.
