Tyson Hugie's Acura Collection

You might know Tyson Hugie for his +500,000 mile Acura Legend, but that’s not the only Acura he owns, not by a long shot. Tyson has actually owned several Acura Legends over the years, along with an Acura NSX and an ILX. His current Acura collection consists of a 1994 Legend coupe, a 1994 Legend sedan, a 1992 NSX, and a 2013 ILX.

The photo above was set up for a story on Tyson that will be featured in a Japanese automotive lifestyle magazine called Kurumag. Check out Tyson’s full post at

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported January 2014 Honda and Acura vehicle sales of 91,631 units, a decrease of 2.1 percent vs. the same period last year amid record cold weather that affected industry sales in many parts of the U.S. Led by a strong lineup of all-weather SUVs, the Acura Division gained substantially in January, with sales up 14.1 percent for a total of 10,823 for the month. The Honda Division recorded sales of 80,808.


  • Acura light truck sales extended a remarkable run, setting a fourth straight monthly record.
  • MDX also continued its exceptionally strong sales pace with a 64.7 percent increase for its best January ever.
  • RDX claimed its 21st consecutive monthly record, adding 9.7 percent for another January record.

“Even the frigid January weather couldn’t stop the all-wheel-drive MDX and RDX from posting another record sales month,” said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura Sales. “Acura is starting the year on strong footing that will get even stronger when the RLX Sport Hybrid and all-new TLX luxury sport sedan go on sale later this year.”

Motor Trend: 2015 Acura TLX Caught Testing

A Motor Trend Editor has caught what appears to be a lightly camouflaged production 2015 Acura TLX. The three photos posted today reveal a slightly toned down version of the TLX Prototype, with less chrome and a few simplified features. Gone are the funky side mirrors which we knew wouldn’t make it, and to the dismay of many, no sign of exhaust tips.
