Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year: Luxury Family – 2014 Acura MDX

Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year: Luxury Family – 2014 Acura MDX

The 2014 Acura MDX has won the 10th Annual Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year award against other finalists in the Luxury Family category. The Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year program, known in short as ALV, is unique in that it brings together automotive journalists as well as elite athletes whose opinions are combined in naming winners in 8 categories. The 2013 event was held on Saturday, October 19 in Chandler, Arizona at the Local Motors micro-factory.

No matter the sport they participate in – biking, kayaking, soccer, and many more – active people demand a lot from their vehicles. That’s why automakers choose to enter their most versatile and rugged vehicles in the competition each October. The all-new MDX, completely redesigned for the 2014 model year, received top honors at the event for its space utility, power, and intuitive technology.

Acura TL-SE Commercial: Best Kept Secret

A second round of ads for 2014 models have recently been uploaded by Acura USA. Both the ILX and RDX ads feature some neat cinematography and digital effects, but it’s the clever plot of the TL’s “Best Kept Secret” that comes out on top for me.

See the three videos below.

Snapshot: Sport Hybrid Acura RLX?

2014 Sport Hybrid Acura RLX

Here is a first look at what might be the upcoming Sport Hybrid Acura RLX. There doesn’t appear to be much difference except for the lower grille design,which has different chrome pieces and the addition of LED lights and fog lights. Acura’s hybrid badge is also placed on the fender.

The changes aren’t drastic, but they do improve on the current design in my opinion. See a quick comparison below.

Sport Hybrid Acura RLX

Temple of VTEC reports reports the Sport Hybrid RLX will produce 377 horsepower, which is slightly more than the 370 horsepower rating Acura mentioned last year at the 2012 LA Auto Show.

Acura ILX Five-Door Wagon Hatchback

It seems there would be more demand for an ILX Coupe, but having already rendered that, Remco M gives the ILX some added utility with his vision of a five-door wagon/hatchback.
