Acura is a car manufacturer based in Tokyo, Japan. They sell luxury vehicles that have been popular for over 30 years now. They have a wide range of cars, from sedans and coupes to crossovers, convertibles, and hybrids. Here in this article, we will go over all of Acura's top model cars to date.

Acura NSX:

The Acura NSX is known for being the fastest Acura. It's an exotic sports car that has been in production for over 25 years now (having taken a little break in the mid-2000s). The original model was unveiled at the 1989 Chicago Auto show and released to the North American market in 1990 as a 1991 model year vehicle with less than 900 units sold globally before it became available overseas two years later. It was originally designed with the help of legendary F1 driver Ayrton Senna.

NSX Features:

The NSX is the best top model Acura that was introduced in 1991. This car has a sleek design and comes with plenty of high-tech features, including the first all-aluminum bodywork, carbon fibre composites for the chassis, air conditioning as well as an engine cooling system. The latest models of the NSX are powered by hybrid engines comprised of 3 electric motors and a twin-turbocharged V6 engine.

Acura RDX:

The RDX is Acura's compact SUV. It began production in 2007 and has since come out with its third generation which was introduced in 2021. The Acura RDX comes equipped with a turbocharged engine that offers plenty of power behind it with 272 horsepower and 280lb.-ft of torque, while also being fuel-efficient at the same time.

RDX Features:

The Acura RDX has a panoramic moon roof, which is made up of three different panels that give you the feeling as if there was no roof at all. The newest generation is equipped with what Acura calls AcuraLink™ which is a smartphone app that allows you to control/access some features of your vehicle such as tire pressure sensors, lock and unlock and auto start.

The layout of the interior makes it so much easier to switch between passengers and cargo space without having to worry about a single thing. This also comes equipped with premium leather seating and heated seating.

Acura MDX:

The MDX is Acura's midsize SUV that was introduced in 2002. It has now come out with its fourth generation, which will be available for purchase later this year. The 2022 Acura MDX has been redesigned, focusing on style and performance and built on a new light truck platform.

Acura MDX Features:

The MDX has similar features to its RDX counterpart however they just look more sophisticated in the MDX. It comes with a panoramic moon roof, leather seating with ultrasuede™ inserts and heated seating. The MDX has the advantages of 7-person seating and added cargo room with the addition of the extra row of seating. The front dash looks like something out of a sci-fi movie with all the tech and digital displays built into the centre console as well as on the steering wheel.

Acura TLX:

The TLX is Acura's performance luxury midsize sports sedan, known for being the most powerful. The first generation was introduced in 2014 and has been praised for its spacious interior design and strong engine performance that comes with a turbocharged V6 cylinder setup. The new generation is starting on a fresh path with how Acura put it “Virtually Everything has changed - except the name” it will be even more powerful with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine 272 horsepower and 10-speed automatic transmission with the option of utilizing the built-in paddle shifters.

TLX Features:

The TLX comes with so many ways you can customize the vehicle to how you prefer, from the interior ambient lighting which can be personalized from 24 different themes to the driving modes that come with some presets such as Sport, Normal, and now individual mode. This vehicle really does focus on its drivers' preferences and allows you to choose how you want to drive.
