2016 Acura ILX

Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:

Nov 20, 2014

Mike Accavitti, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Acura Division

Good morning and thanks for joining us.

It’s been an exciting show so far, and we’re thrilled to be with you today to showcase a thoroughly redesigned, refreshed and reborn Acura ILX sports sedan.

Acura is on the move, step by step, we’re executing on our vision for the Acura brand, adding more performance, more luxury prestige, and more dynamic proportion in design. And we’re gaining energy and strength with every new model launch.

It started two years ago on the SUV side of the lineup with the second-generation RDX, which has run its race at a torrid pace, turning in 25 consecutive months of sales records. It was followed to market by an all-new, third-generation MDX, which is not only the sales leader in its segment, it’s the best-selling 3-row luxury SUV of all time.

2015 Acura MDX Off-Road

The EverymanDriver Dave Erickson gets behind the wheel of a 2015 Acura MDX SH-AWD for another of his off-road test reviews. The hills were steep and rugged at the Spokane ORV Park, at one point forcing the SH-AWD equipped MDX to push through successfully on just three wheels.

 ”WOW… impressive… People call these cars like the MDXs, RDXs mall-finders, you know they’re just a family vehicle or a high end luxury vehicle that people take to the mall and the don’t really take it off-road. But if you want to… you can.”- Dave Erickson

Watch the 8:13-minute off-road review below.
