Acura, the top-shelf face of Honda, has edified itself as a major contender in the luxury car market with the one-two punch of its RL and TL model lines. The RL and TL have been Acura’s bread and butter designs, and the 2004 model year, which brought about a major design change for the two, has once again raised the bar for the Japanese manufacturer.
Acura MDX: this mid-sized luxury SUV provides an alternative to the ubiquitous European luxury SUV’s, with all of the same accouterments: GPS, four-wheel-drive, Bose XM stereo, and leather seating for seven define Acura’s offering in the SUV segment.
Acura NSX: Acura’s poster child of performance, this mid-engine 290 horsepower sports car sporting an aluminum block and body features front/rear weight distribution. The featherweight NSX handles like the two seat locomotive on rails that it is.
Acura RL: Acura’s flagship sedan revamped for 2005, the RL is tantamount to all other luxury sedans across the board. Several innovations in this year’s design make this the most complete Acura yet.
Acura RSX: Acura continues to hone the edges of its sports coupe. Refined and sporty right out of the box, yet still affordable, this car epitomizes the sport-compact category.
Acura TL: The workhorse of the brand line, the TL is a visceral and competent sports sedan, worthy of carrying the Acura lineage on.
Acura TSX: A competent sedan with the luxury of the TL (but a much tamer 4-cylinder power plant) makes this a prudent choice for those looking for a reliable luxury sedan without the snarl of its bigger brothers.
