2016 Acura ILX Spy Photos
Oct 21, 2014 - 2:52 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
The other day Acura teased its upcoming 2016 ILX sedan by releasing a darkened photo of the car. It revealed next to nothing, but fortunately we can do much better than that; we’ve got an entire gallery of spy photos.

The car was caught with its pants down so to speak, out in the blinding desert sun. The littlest Acura will borrow some styling cues from its TLX big brother but it also resembles the Honda Civic Si in some ways.

The car’s headlamps and front fascia appear to be more aggressive than what’s on today’s version. The body-side appears to have received some tweaking as well, but the big story is ‘round back. The ILX’s booty is dramatically different, with much more aggressive styling elements and surface details.

This compact luxury car is expected to receive new powertrains as well. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder base engine is rumored to get a boost to 170 hp; torque will likely climb as well. Thanks to Honda’s “Earth Dreams” technology it might even get more efficient. The optional 2.4-liter unit is expected to be matched to an automatic transmission instead of just a manual, which is the case with today’s version of the car. This should make it appeal to many more customers.

Look for the 2016 Acura ILX to formally debut at next month’s L.A. Auto Show. And we’ll be there in California bringing you the latest news from this critically important motoring event, so stay tuned for more.

Acura RLX Hybrid Delayed
Aug 14, 2014 - 9:11 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
The Acura RLX Hybrid still isn’t up to the Japanese automaker’s expectations.

Originally expected to arrive this spring, the RLX Hybrid was then delayed and was supposed to arrive this summer. But the RLX Hybrid has yet to show up at dealerships and according to the company’s senior vice president and general manager, Mike Accavitti, the car isn’t on sale due to a “technical” issue. Unfortunately Accavitti wouldn’t elaborate on the issue simply telling WardsAuto that the sedan “just hasn’t met with our expectations yet.”

Reported reasons for the car’s delay vary from a lithium-ion battery shortage to engineers needing to work out the car’s three-electric-motor Super-Handling-All-Wheel-Drive system. The RLX Hybrid will feature a trio of electric motors paired to a 3.5-liter V6 engine for a total system output of 377 hp.

As of now, the RLX Hybrid is expected to arrive dealerships within the next month as some units were on a boat from Japan late last month.

2015 Acura TLX First Drive

Acura TLX Forum

Can the TLX Really Replace Two Cars?
by Mike Schlee

Being a sea turtle isn’t easy. Moments after taking their first breath, they have to embark on a death-defying crawl from the nest to the sea across a beach filled with predators waiting for an easy meal. It’s estimated that only one in 1,000 baby sea turtles ever makes it to adulthood.

The new 2015 Acura TLX can relate. Although we're quite certain more than 0.1 percent of TLXs will survive their first few years of existence, the road ahead for the compact luxury sedan is not going to be easy. Built as a replacement for both the Acura TL and TSX, the TLX must undertake the daunting task of competing with the heavyweights of the compact luxury sedan segment head-on.
Looks like an Acura

The TLX is instantly recognizable as an Acura thanks to familiar styling cues and the controversial corporate grille. Of course, like all new Acuras, the TLX features the Jewel Eye LED headlights as well as a whole complement of LED lighting around the exterior.

Claiming customers found the TL was a little too large for the class while the TSX wasn’t sporty enough, Acura has built the TLX to bridge the gap between the two. With an overall length 3.8 inches shorter than the 2014 TL, the TLX rides on a nearly identical wheelbase and offers similar interior space. Adult passengers will have no issue fitting in the rear seats thanks to an understated 34.5 inches of rear legroom.

Production Acura NSX Spied Nurburgring Testing
Jul 22, 2014 - 1:18 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
New spy photos rolled in today showing a car we have been waiting on for quite some time, the all-new 2016 Acura NSX.

The first next-generation Acura NSX concept made its debut in Detroit back in 2012, and the car spotted today at the Nürburgring seems to carry over about 95 percent of that original design. A few noticeable changes are a slightly revised front fascia and new hood vents over the front wheel arches.

SEE ALSO: Acura NSX and Affordable Ferrari Fighter: Chief Engineer

A mid-mounted twin-turbo V6 provides grunt through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, but that won’t be the only power source. Each front wheel will have its own electric motor powering it as part of Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive Setup, known as SH-AWD. There will also be another electric motor in the rear and all together, the system should add up to produce around 500 hp.

Honda has set the bar high for the new NSX, benchmarking it against cars like the Ferrari 458, McLaren MP4-12C and the Audi R8. Acura previously said that the car will cost somewhere in Porsche 911 territory, which carries a range starting from about $80,000 up to $180,000. Wherever the price tag lands, Acura claims that this will be a great performance bargain.

Acura ILX Recalled for Potential Headlight Fires
Jul 09, 2014 - 1:16 PM - by AutoGuide.com

Quote:
Acura is calling back 14,708 ILX models over an issue with the headlights.

The company says that when the vehicle has been parked for “an extremely long time” with the engine and low-beam headlights running, excessive heat can build up in the light housing and cause the plastic components to melt which can lead to a fire. ILX models from the 2013 and 2014 model year are affected.

One fire has been reported as a result of this issue. In that case, the car had been parked with the engine idling for several hours.

Acrua will notify affected customers by mail starting in late July.
