HRE Performance Wheels NSX

“A classic of it’s time, the Acura (Honda) NSX was one of the few Japanese mid-engine sports. You probably recognize Andy aka “BlueBatmobile” on the forums.

Andy selected a set of HRE C95 with Brush Tinted centers and Polished outer. His NSX uses 18″x8.5″ front and 19″x10″ rear. The C95 features titanium assembly bolts, some of the lightest wheels HRE offers.”

Bringing Home the Holiday Spirit

Posted by  on December 23rd, 2011 No comments
Happy Holidays

If you can’t book Bette Midler or Gordon Ramsay for the holidays, nothing beats an old fashioned Christmas tree to liven up the household.

After choosing that perfect tree from the lot, taking it home can sometimes be a painful experience. Fear not, with a little string and cardboard, the ZDX and it’s long sloping roofline can also double as a tree hauler. Take a look at some photos from Acura owner VeNeNo of AcuraZine, who easily strapped a 6-foot tall Douglas Fir to the roof of his ZDX to bring home for the holidays.

Best wishes and safe travels to all Acura Connected readers this holiday season.

RoadflyTV 2012 Acura TL Advance Video Review

RoadflyTV Reviews the 2012 Acura TL Advance

RoadflyTV‘s Ross Rapoport shares his thoughts on the 2012 Acura TL Advance in this latest video review. While not the 305-hp SH-AWD 6-Speed Manual that he wanted to test, the base 280-hp engine turned out to be “a lot hairier and nastier” than he expected. The interior also impressed, which brought Ross to go through and show us all the neat storage compartments found up front. It’s not something we usually see in a review, but I actually found it was kind of interesting.

Acura Earns Three IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK Ratings

Posted by  on December 15th, 2011 No comments

Official release from www.acuranews.com:

Best selling Acura TSX, TL and MDX receive IIHS accolades

12/15/2011 – TORRANCE, Calif.

Acura today announced that three of its best selling models received the highest possible safety rating of TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) under its more-stringent testing guidelines implemented last year.

The Acura TSX sedan and wagon, TL and MDX earned the highest-possible score of GOOD in all four ratings, including the more rigorous roof-strength test. According to the IIHS, vehicles rated good for rollover protection have roofs more than twice as strong as the current federal standard requires. The IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK award recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting vehicle occupants in front, side, rollover, and rear crashes based on ratings in the Institute’s evaluations.

All 2012 Acura models utilize the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. ACE™ is an exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes. The ACE™ design utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This enhanced frontal crash energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment.

Standard safety equipment on all Acura models include Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control, an anti-lock braking system (ABS), dual-stage/multiple-threshold front airbags, front-side airbags with passenger side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), side curtain airbags for all outboard seating positions, front seats with integrated active head restraints, front seatbelts with automatic tensioning system and load limiters, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and Daytime Running Lights (DRL).

About Acura
Acura offers a full line of technologically advanced performance luxury vehicles through a network of 272 dealers within the United States. The 2012 Acura lineup features six distinctive models including the RL luxury performance sedan, the TL performance luxury sedan, the TSX sports sedan and Sport Wagon, the turbocharged RDX crossover SUV, the MDX luxury SUV and the ZDX four-door sports coupe.
