This Black Acura NSX Should Be The New KITT

If you're a fan of the Acura (or Honda, in most other markets) NSX and you like Japanese culture, these images are definitely going to gauge your interest.

The background seems perfectly chosen for the this sinister-looking NSX, mixing a black exterior with dual-tone black and red Forgiato Tecnica 2.5-R wheels.

Is The 2017 Acura MDX The Fairest Of All Three-Row SUVs?

With strong rivals such as the Lexus RX and the Infiniti QX60, Acura needed to improve the MDX considerably in order to keep up with the competition.

Based on what we've seen so far, it would appear that they have. Our own Zac Estrada tested the 2017 MDX back in April and found it to be pretty convincing.

Acura Is Livestreaming An Augmented Reality Race On Facebook

Acura is livestreaming an augmented reality race on Facebook

Honda's luxury car brand Acura is set to livestream an augmented reality race featuring its 2018 TLX A-Spec sedan. The event will see four drivers hit a real track while wearing AR helmets that will create new virtual environments for each lap. Aside from spectating, viewers will also be able to interact with the racers on Facebook Live. The race will see each driver attempt to clock the fastest overall time during a three-lap time trial. That sounds simple enough, until the AR environments come online and really begin altering what the drivers see. As a result, each lap will trigger a new mixed-reality environment, visible to both the drivers and viewers. Central to the virtual experience will be the computer-connected helmets worn by the racers. Within each helmet is a HD screen with a two-way mirror that allows the driver to see the AR overlaid onto the real track. A computer rig in the backseat, powered by the Acura's battery, will generate the environments. To ensure the experience runs smoothly, Acura will have to track the objects on the tarmac and the movement of the car itself. Of course, this isn't Forza, so you can't just rewind the action should something go wrong, so Acura will use custom-made tracking gear to ensure the drivers don't plough into a wall because their eyes deceive them. You can tune into the race on Monday at 8pm ET on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. Viewers will be shown the action courtesy of cameras placed on the drivers' helmets and around the track. Facebook Live audience members will also be able to offer hints and tips. Acura claims the interactions will transform viewers into a virtual pit crew.

Here's What You Can Expect From An Acura MDX Long Term

While it's nice to always know which car handles the best and which has more advanced and easier to use on-board tech, ownership costs can be just as important when buying new.

With that in mind, Kelley Blue Book drove this 2016 Acura MDX for a whole year, putting more than 24,000 miles (38,624 km) on the clock, and what they found was a very reliable product.

Acura Is Considering A Subcompact Crossover For The Us Market

Acura is Considering a Subcompact Crossover for the US Market

The Acura CDX is a small crossover currently only sold in China, but that might change soon.

With the crossover segment continuing to grow in North America, Acura is thinking about adding the CDX to its lineup. The Acura CDX went on sale in China last year and rides on the same platform underpinning the Honda HR-V. If it does make its way to North America, it would slot below the Acura RDX and would likely be powered by the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine found in the Honda Civic.

Acura Stretches The Tlx With Long-wheelbase Prototype For China

Acura Stretches The TLX With Long-Wheelbase Prototype For China

Want a new Acura sedan, but find the TLX too small? You could step up to the bigger RLX – or, if you live in China, into the stretched TLX-L. Or at least you could at sometime later this year.

Previewed as in near-production concept form at the Shanghai Auto Show this week is the Acura TLX-L prototype. It's clearly based closely on the latest version of Honda's midsize luxury sedan revealed – complete with its more crowd-pleasing grille – at the New York Auto Show last week, but adds more space for the rear passengers by increasing the wheelbase.

2018 Acura Tlx Gets Sporty A-spec Trim With Mid-cycle Refresh

2018 Acura TLX gets sporty A-Spec trim with mid-cycle refresh

Acura is giving the TLX a thorough refresh three years into its life cycle. The biggest changes are outside. All TLXs now feature a rendition of the pentagon-shaped grille found on the Precision concept and the MDX. In addition, the hood, fenders, lights, and front bumpers are tweaked. Other changes are exclusive to higher trim levels and engine options. The V6 model gets a unique rear bumper with dual-outlet exhaust and 18-inch alloy wheels rather than the four-cylinder's 17-inch wheels.

The most visually unique variant of the TLX lineup is the new A-Spec model. It comes with a more aggressive front bumper, side skirts, and rear bumper with faux diffuser. Fog lights, round dual exhaust outlets, and a black-painted rear spoiler are also standard features. The A-Spec receives some performance upgrades as well. Front-wheel-drive TLX A-Specs get firmer shocks and more responsive steering on the front-wheel-drive version, while the Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive (SH-AWD) version adds firmer springs and a stiffer rear anti-roll bar. Wider tires on 19-inch wheels also come fitted to A-Spec models.
