2019 Acura RDX arrives in June with starting price of $37,300 before destination fee

At last, the new 2019 Acura RDX is arriving this June, and customers interested in purchasing this reengineered and redesigned SUV would need at least around $38,295 (including destination) in their pockets to own the entry-level version of this luxury vehicle.

The base two-wheel drive model of the 2019 Acura RDX has a window sticker price of $37,300, before $995 in destination fees. The base 2019 RDX with the Super Handling-All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, on the other hand, is priced at $39,300 before $995 destination fees. At this starting price, the Acura RDX is essentially less expensive than the BMW X3 (at $41,000), the Audi Q5 (at $41,500), and the Volvo XC60 (at $41,500). However, the new RDX is bit pricier than the Infiniti QX50 (at $36,550), the Lexus NX (at $35,985) and the Lincoln MKC (at $33,995).

Interestingly, some standard equipment and features on the RDX are offered as optional on more expensive luxury SUVs like the X3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. These include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist as well as road departure mitigation. Furthermore, the base RDX with SH-AWD comes standard with LED headlights, a panoramic moonroof, as well as a set of 19-inch wheels.

Facelifted 2018 Acura RLX starts at $54,900

2018 Acura RLX sports sedan is scheduled to come out in U.S. showrooms on November 7. The lineup only consists of two models, both featuring a new simplified style.

The flagship RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, on the other hand, starts at $61,900, minus the destination fee. If you remember the price of the outgoing model, the latter actually costs $4,050 less than the current model with the Advance Package.

For the 2018 model year, customers could get the sports sedan in two new colour options including the Brilliant Red Metallic and Majestic Black Pearl, both of which are new hues for the RLX. In the cabin are redesigned Milano leather seats, which are finished in a rich Espresso hue, and matched with high-contrast piping and stitching. A black headliner is also available.

Acura gives the ILX the A-Spec Special Edition trim

As we all know, the Acura ILX has been out in the market for quite some time now - since 2012 to be more specific. And of course, to keep it alive, Acura had to come up with a unique trim they call the A-Spec Special Edition trim. This new trim will cost you $28,900, and includes a number of new features. It is already available in the United States.

Some of the upgrades include side sills, a deckled spoiler, unique badging all over and a new set of 18-inch A-Spec wheels. Apart from the new upgrades, the Acura ILX offers the same standard features including the Acura JewelEye LED headlights, an eight-way power driver’s seat, a multi-view rear view camera, five-inch multi-view display, keyless smart entry with push button start, security system and a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. There is also the AcuraWatch, which features a number of safety features as well as driver assistive technologies, among others, but this costs an additional $1,300 when added to the base model.

Under the hood, there is a 2.4 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an output of 201 horsepower and 180 pound feet (244 Newton metres) of torque. The whole ILX lineup has a fuel economy of 25 mpg city, 35 mpg highway, and 29 mpg combined. All in all, there are seven unique trim options for the ILX, that already include the Special Edition. As for pricing, customers could get the entry level ILX for $28,100, $28,900 for the Special Edition, and $29,400 for the AcuraWatch Plus. For the ILX Premium, it would cost $30,100, while the Premium A-Spec can be had for $32,100. For an even higher trim, the ILX Tech Plus starts at $33,100, and the range topping ILX Tech Plus A-Spec is priced at $35,100.

2018 Acura TLX to arrive this June with $33,000 starting price

The refreshed 2018 Acura TLX will be hitting the showrooms next month with a starting price of $33,000 for the TLX 2.4L and $36,200 for the V6. Coming out with a new A-Spec variant and the latest premium features, Acura is also equipping all its TLX models with AcuraWatch technology inspired by Acura Precision Concept.

By bringing the “precision crafted performance” on the exterior design, the already impressive performance of the Acura TLX is highlighted even further, explains Acura VP & GM John Ikeda. That said, the addition of a sportier A-Spec in the segment raises the TLX a notch higher as it also appeals to those in search of a performance-oriented model.

Regarding its new features, all V6 engine variants will come with a new rear diffuser with dual exhausts while the Technology Package consists of a power-operated height extension on the driver’s seat. In addition to this, the package features leather seats with high contrast stitching and piping with chrome side sills to match.

Acura first introduced the CDX at the 2016 Auto China, and today it is being sold exclusively across their showrooms in China. But recent news from all over the web is saying that Acura is considering bringing the CDX to the United States.

What’s with the change of heart? John Ikeda, Vice President and General Manager of Acura US told Wards Auto in an interview (during a ’18 TLX media event) that the CDX seems like “a model that interests a lot of our people, so we have our R&D guys looking into the possibility”. He then added that it won’t be that simple as the CDX was designed especially for the Chinese market and this may not pass the United States regulatory standards. So it isn’t shipping that may cause problems but more of the regulatory requirements. However, this matter is currently under discussion.

The CDX is a small luxury CUV based on the Honda HR-V. Under the hood, the CDX has a turbocharged 1.5 liter four cylinder engine (the same engine found in a Civic and the CR-V) that produces 180 horsepower and 177 pound feet of torque, powered by an eight speed dual clutch transmission and an all-wheel-drive system.

Acura fans and customers rejoice! Sales have begun for the flagship model of Acura’s RLX top-of-the-range sedan – the 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid. Described by Acura as its most powerful and technologically advanced sedan in history, the RLX Sport Hybrid for the 2017 model year doesn’t come cheap.

As Honda’s luxury vehicle marque, Acura produces premium vehicles that command premium prices. So, if you’re expecting the 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid to be offered cheap, better get rid of that expectation. After all, even the base grade of the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid – the version with Technology Package – comes to dealerships with a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $59,950. That doesn’t include shipping or destination charges, which amount to around $920. This means that a base version of the 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid has a total price of $60,870. Now, for Acura customers who believe they deserve better, they could pick the top-of-the-line Acura RLX Sport Hybrid with Advance Package. It commands a $6,000 premium over the RLX Sport Hybrid with Technology Package, but should further satisfy the cravings of discerning Acura customers.

The 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid is essentially the marque’s most luxurious and technology-laden executive sedan, boasting of the innovatively advanced Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD). This system employs not just one or two, but three electric motors working hand-in-hand with a direct-injected 3.5-liter V6 engine that could provide 310 hp. One of the motors – also serving as generator -- powers the front wheels while the other two take care of the rear wheels. In total, the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system provides a total of 377 hp (281 kW) of output and 341 lb.-ft. (462 Nm) of torque. With this powertrain, the 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid has fuel economy ratings of 29 mpg city, 30 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined.

Luxury carmaker Acura has launched its latest offering -- the new MY2016 Acura ILX sedan -- with a starting price of $28,820. The MY2016 Acura ILX boasts of several improvements. However, despite those improvements, the overall price surge will be just around $900, and the final price tag still includes destination charges.

Compared to the manual-only MY2015 Acura ILX 2.4, the MY2016 ILX is less expensive by $1,450. Improvements include the powertrain as the MY2016 ILX now features a direct-injected 2.4-liter I4 engine (seen on the Acura TLX) that chugs out 201hp of output and 180lb-ft. of torque and is mated to an eight-speed dual clutch sequential manual transmission.

This essentially makes the MY2016 Acura ILX more powerful than its predecessor, which is powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. While the new engine is more powerful, it is also more efficient. In fact, the MY2016 ILX features an EPA-rated fuel economy of 29 miles per gallon (combined), compared to 28 mpg (combined) for the MY2015 version.

Still, Honda said that the SUV-X is a global concept and will target the Chinese market as Acura will start local production and sales in China by 2016.

Asked if the Acura compact crossover could debut in North America, Honda spokesman Yuka Abe said that the carmaker is currently deciding what markets outside China will get it.

The 2014 Acura RDX, which is on sale now, is $200 more expensive across the line but the automaker is confident that this price increase won’t have an impact on sales. The RDX was Acura’s top-selling model for the month of March. The 2014 RDX base model is priced at $35,415 (including destination costs).

Apparently, buyers really liked the transformation of the RDX from being a sporty turbocharged crossover into a six-cylinder crossover that’s more middle-of-the-road. The lone distinction between a 2013 RDX and a 2014 RDX is that the Amber Brownstone exterior is replaced by Kona Coffee.

But all 2014 RDX models will be powered by a 273-hp 3.5-liter V-6 partnered with a six-speed automatic transmission. For an extra $1,400, buyers can get the all-wheel drive version. The standard equipment on all 2014 RDXs includes a multi-angle rearview camera, hands-free keyless access with push-button start, leather seats, heated front seats, a moonroof, and a 360-watt sound system with Pandora radio and SMS text messaging features.

Acura makes his comeback to the entry-luxury segment with the 2013 ILX sedan after departing in 2006 with the termination of the RSX hatchback. The ILX has the same underpinnings as the Honda Civic just like the RSX and the Integra before it. This isn’t the first luxury car to use the underpinnings of a mass-market cousin. The interiors of the Civic and the ILX are different but the driving dynamics of the Acura seems too similar to the Civic.

The ILX is powered exclusively by the base 2.0-liter engine, which enables the car to get to 60mph in 9.6 seconds. It is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. It has a faster shift response than Acura's slightly bigger TSX, but with reduced shift shock.

Those who want the ILX to have a better performance should know that it can be fitted with the 201-hp 2.4-liter four-banger from the Civic Si but just with a six-speed stick. Those who have a preference for fuel economy may want the ILX that provides an Acura version of the Civic Hybrid that enables cruising in EV mode between 10 and 45 mph. The ILX Hybrid returns an estimated 39 mpg city/38 highway.

Acura is offering a wagon version of the TSX sedan for 2011. Wagons actually have a very small share of the near-luxury segment in the U.S. and not many automakers produce them. According to Steve Center, American Honda Motor Co.'s chief marketing officer, the wagon is an alternative to SUVs but “without the girth or the stigma and with all the utility.”

Basically, the wagon is a sheet metal extension of the sedan. It has the same hard points as the sedan and even the seating locations are identical.

Because of this, the extension goes entirely into the cargo area. Notably, the TSX gives up four inches of wheelbase to the Audi A4 Avant wagon, but the Acura is four inches longer overall.
