But how will it fare against another Japanese performance sedan? The YouTube channel Sam CarLegion gives an answer by pitting the Type S against an Infiniti Q50 Red Sport.
The Acura Integra Could Return to Racing
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.
The Reincarnated 2023 Acura Integra Prototype Revealed With Fastback Styling And Forced Induction
Acura has been hyping the new Integra for a few months now. It all started in August this year when the automaker officially announced that the moniker is making a comeback. The next month, we got to know that it will be a full-blown hatchback with fastback styling. And, finally, coming up with a kickass trailer announcing that the new Integra will feature a six-speed manual gearbox.
Fast forward to the present day, Acura has revealed the 2023 Integra prototype. It is a near-production version and we don’t expect any major changes to be made to the real deal. Unfortunately, the company didn’t give out a lot of details, but we at least know what it looks like.
Acura’s Upcoming MDX Type S Comes at a Very Steep Cost
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.

Today’s drag race, by YouTube channel Sam CarLegion shows us just that, as it pits the Genesis GV70 against an Audi SQ5 and an Acura RDX with a tune. This is how things went down.
2022 Acura ILX
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?

Is it the best you can buy in this budget? Let’s find out.
2022 Acura RDX
Acura boasting the RDX with its “best-selling SUV” title in its segment since 2006 is no hoax. The RDX is a fun-to-drive compact SUV that got better with time and the same holds true for the 2022 model year. The new RDX is promised to have updated looks and better cabin insulation for an undisturbed and calm driving experience. Along with that, Acura has added a few standard functions like the addition of Amazon Alexa with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Is it as exciting as the brand is highlighting it to be?

It’s Official: Acura Is Bringing Back The Integra In 2022
If you are among the people who were hoping for a new Acura Integra Type-R, today is your lucky day. Acura just announced the revival of one of their most iconic names – the Integra. They did so in a press release, on August 13th, and there’s even a teaser on Acura’s Instagram page, giving us a glimpse of the sports car.
Least Expensive Acura Model
Acura has a pretty full lineup that includes three sedans, two SUVs, and the NSX supercar. The Acura ILX is Acura’s least expensive model with a price tag in the $26,000 range before taxes, registration, and other fees. Acura actually corners the market with the ILX as it’s one of just a few compact luxury sedans that sits well below the $30,000 price point.
Sportiest Acura Model
As far as sportiness is concerned, the Acura NSX takes the cake and eats it too. But that’s a supercar, so that’s not really playing fair. If you’re looking for the sportiest car that isn’t the NSX, then look no further than the Acura TLX. It’s marketed as a “Performance Luxury Sedan,” and it features a rather sporty exterior compliment and as much as 290 horsepower from the optional V-6. It can even be had with Acura’s awesome SH-AWD all-wheel-drive system.
Most Popular Acura Model
In the heart and dreams of enthusiasts everywhere, the NSX would again take the cake in this category, but in reality, the most popular models in Acura’s lineup include the RDX and MDX. Priced at $37,600 and $44,300, respectively, both models can be had with all-wheel drive and, if you’re in need of three rows, you’ll find that the MDX fits the bill.
Most Expensive Acura Model
The most expensive family car that Acura offers is the RLX – it’s basically the S-Class of Acura’s, and its price tag approaches the $55,000 range. The Acura NSX, however, is by far the most expensive with a price tag of $157,500.
Are Acura Cars Reliable?
As the performance and luxury arm of Honda, it’s probably not surprising to you that Acura models are pretty reliable. According to Repair Pal, Acura’s overall reliability rating is 4.5 out of 5, which puts it in 9th place out of all 32 car brands. As a whole, Acura models are reported as having inexpensive repair costs and a low rate of severe repairs.
