Production Acura NSX Spied Nurburgring Testing
Jul 22, 2014 - 12:18 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.

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 - 12:16 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.

Acura ILX Hybrid Scrapped
Jun 18, 2014 - 7:57 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
When the 2015 ILX starts arriving in showrooms tomorrow, there will be one model of the original three missing.

Following disappointing sales, Acura chose to discontinue the hybrid version of the ILX compact sedan opting only to sell the 2.0- and 2.4-liter four-cylinder non-hybrid versions for the car’s sophomore year on the market. Those models get a $150 price hike compared to last year and continue to be offered with a five-speed automatic transmission for the 2.0-liter model and a six-speed manual for the 2.4-liter version.

“Based on the stronger appeal of the ILX 2.0 and 2.4 models, we are streamlining the ILX lineup to better align with customer demand, Acura will no longer offer the ILX Hybrid starting with the 2015 model year. Customers should still be able to buy a 2014 ILX Hybrid during the next few months as there is still currently dealer inventory,” Acura spokesman Vince Manganiello wrote in response to an email inquiry.

In May, American Honda reported selling 63 ILX Hybrids, representing a decline of almost 68 percent compared to may 2013. Since launching, the ILX hybrid hasn’t been a strong seller.

Pricing for the 2.0-liter, five-speed ILX starts at $27,945 this year while the 2.4-liter six-speed model costs $30,245 and the automatic 2.0-liter model with the “Technology Package,” which includes navigation and an enhanced sound system, costs $32,645.
