Acura RDX Works Well in Real World Driving

By Jim Bray

Monday, January 22, 2007

Acura's RDX is surely one of the best combinations of luxury, performance, technology and value you can get in a mainstream sport ute.

I first had the opportunity to drive Acura's "entry premium" SUV at a media introduction in San Francisco, and I liked it a lot. But a couple of hours behind the wheel doesn't give much "real world" experience; I wanted to try it for a longer period, on the roads near my home.

Acura MDX Goes Up Market

By Jim Bray

Sunday, January 21, 2007

Acura's new MDX is bigger, more plush and more technologically advanced than its predecessor. It's also a comfortable and rewarding vehicle to drive.

The company says the 2007 MDX competes in the "Mid Premium" Sport Utility Vehicle segment, a niche they expect will grow by some 16 per cent over the next half decade.

Acura TSX — Totally Seductive Xperience

By Jim Bray

Monday, July 31, 2006

Acura's TSX is a classic example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

Like a football team that doesn't have the best quarterback or the strongest defense but which manages to fight its way to the championship anyway, the TSX won't win any "Automotive Super bowls" for its horsepower, torque, and the like, yet it's a delight to drive and would undoubtedly be an easy car to live with.

Acura's New RDX SUV a Driving Treat

By Jim Bray

Saturday, July 1, 2006

San Francisco, CA — Acura's new "entry premium" SUV, the RDX, not only introduces the company's first turbocharger and intercooler to the western hemisphere, it also ups the occupant enjoyment ante via a comfortable cabin featuring a newly designed surround sound audio system that's a joy for the ears.

Acura introduced the new RDX to North American media-types in a manner befitting a luxury vehicle, with a deluxe tour of the San Francisco area that let the writers put the vehicle through its paces on a selection of bloody marvelous California roads that gave us the perfect opportunity to check out the RDX's driving feel and comfort quotient.

Acura CSX: Entry Level in Name Only?

By Jim Bray

Saturday, February 4, 2006

It isn't as racy as the TSX or RSX, but Acura's new CSX is a fitting successor to the now-defunct EL as its Canadian market entry level sedan.

The EL began life as basically an up market Honda Civic, and there's certainly nothing wrong with that. Through two generations, the EL carried Acura's compact luxury sedan banner very well, but now the company has decided to break with that tradition and give the new version a new name.

Acura 3.5 RL: Cushy Technology

By Jim Bray

Saturday, July 23, 2005

Acura’s top-of-the-line sedan is all new for 2005, offering a handsome new suit of clothes inside and out, more power, and enough technological goodies to please the most rabid technophile.

It also comes with a nifty new all wheel drive system that strikes a balance between Acura’s penchant for front wheel drive with the market segment’s penchant for rear wheel drive vehicles.

2005 RSX Type S a Spirited Ride

By Jim Bray

Tuesday, July 12, 2005

Talk about Shock and Awe.

When the Acura RSX debuted as a replacement for the popular Integra, there was a certain amount of shock as people wondered why the company had chosen to introduce an all new model rather than just upgrade the Integra to a new generation.

That shock has now passed as the RSX has proved itself over the past few years, replaced by a sense of awe. As in awe over Acura's skill in taking what had been a nice "entry level" sporty car and turning it into a really nice "entry level" sporty car.

New TL Ups the Acura Ante

By Jim Bray

October 7, 2004

Once again Acura has left me in awe--and I wasn’t even able to drive the car properly!

The Acura TL Type S may be gone, but performance aficionados need not mourn. Its replacement gives you everything that was great about that car, and a lot more.

And if you’re an audiophile, the new TL just may be the set of wheels you want to wield - at least until the competition catches up. But more about that later, and in another column. Stay Tuned, so to speak!
