Motoring TV 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD Elite Review

Graeme Flethcher of Motoring TV takes a look at the Canadian 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD Elite in this recent YouTube upload. The Elite package is the top level TL in Canada, equivalent to the US Advance package which includes upgrades such as 19″ wheels, the Blind Spot Information System and ventilated front seats. There’s no surprise that the 2012 TL’s refreshed styling and SH-AWD system continues to impress in this video review below.

“Test Drive of the 2012 Acura TL. The sophisticated all wheel drive system doesn’t fool around with the 3.7L, 305 horse power engine putting a lot of power to the wheels.” – Motoring TV

Motor Trend 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon Long Term Update 5

2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon © Motor Trend

Hauling new Ikea furniture has never been so easy thanks to the Acura TSX Sport Wagon’s 60.5 cubic feet of cargo space and high revving four-cylinder engine. “Practical and Fun” is how Motor Trend describes the TSX in the latest update of their Long Term Road Test.

“Furniture packed, navi set, it was time to hit the freeway and head home. The circular, tight radius on-ramp near the local Ikea is always a great way to exercise the sport wagon’s ability to out-handle its crossover competitors, and is a solid reminder why wagons are better cargo-carrying alternatives for driving enthusiasts. Roll onto the throttle, suck into the radius, and be amazed that a car carrying this much stuff also has noticeable chassis tuning running through its veins.” – Alex Nishimoto, Motor Trend

2011 Acura MDX Track Test Video

Edmunds Inside Line took an Acura to the track, but it wasn’t the TL or the TSX. You won’t often find a 7-passenger SUV running the slalom, but in this test the 2011 Acura MDX proved to be more than accommodating. With impressive numbers like these, it would give your typical sedan a run for its money.

Inside Line Track Test Results:
0-60(sec): 7.3
0-60 with 1-ft Rollout(sec): 7.0
1/4-Mile(sec @ mph): 15.4 @ 90.8
60-0(ft): 125
Skid Pad(g): 0.84
Slalom(mph): 61.3

The 2011 Acura RL used as a golf cart? Nick Jaynes of Downforce Motoring takes the RL to Heron Lakes Golf Course in this humorous and entertaining “Top Gear” inspired video review.

There really aren’t too many video reviews of the upgraded 2011 Acura RL, so kudos to the guys over at Downforce Motoring for putting together a lengthy and unique review.

I was even surprised by an RL feature I’ve never seen before: the electronically controlled rear window shade. Who knew?

Motor Trend Long Term Review Verdict: 2010 Acura ZDX

The Editors at Motor Trend have made the verdict on the 2010 Acura ZDX in the final update of their Long Term Review. They’ve finally decided that well… they’re still pretty much undecided.

“The sign of any good design is when it causes strong reactions, negative or positive. Our long-term ZDX certainly didn’t leave our editors on middle ground. Even a full year and 25,000 miles later, opinions are still split on whether Acura hit the nail square on the head with its swoopy crossover or whacked its thumb in a painful blunder.” – Mike Febbo, Motor Trend

Over the past year they’ve made a total of 7 entry updates and compiled a nice collection of photos of the 2010 Acura ZDX in a variety of settings.

2010 Acura ZDX Automobile Magazine - Acura ZDX Four Seasons Review Wrap-Up

Acura ZDX Four Seasons Review Wrap-Up

After a year of testing with the all new 2010 Acura ZDX, the editors at Automobile Magazine conclude their Four Seasons Review.

“Our first drive of the ZDX a few months later revealed Acura’s newest creation to be highly luxurious and even quite good to drive. But we still wondered about its place in the automotive cosmos. Clearly, we would require more time with the ZDX if we were going to get our heads around it. So, we ordered one for a Four Seasons test.” – Joe Lorio, Automobile magazine
