2016 Acura RDX Launching with More Performance, Luxury Appointments and Advanced Safety Technology than Ever Before

In a major commitment to advance what is already one of its most successful models, Acura is launching a more powerful, fuel efficient and luxuriously appointed 2016 RDX luxury SUV at dealerships nationwide tomorrow with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $35,270 – an increase of just $175 over the 2015 model, despite the additional performance, features and capability.

Coming off an all-time record sales year in 2014, the refreshed 5-passenger RDX now packs an even stronger punch in the compact luxury SUV class for 2016 with a more powerful 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V-6 engine, ride and handling refinements, an expanded list of available AcuraWatch™ safety and driver-assistive technologies, restyled exterior and interior elements and a host of new luxury features and technologies, including standard Jewel Eye™ LED projector headlamps and LED taillights. A new line-topping Advance grade ties the improvements and new features together in one comprehensive package.

“The new RDX is another great example of how we are continuing to advance our Acura lineup with a focus on prestige, performance and dynamic proportion,” said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager of Acura. “With the all-new TLX and upgraded MDX, RDX and ILX all getting a major injection of Acura DNA, we have one of the strongest Acura lineups in a decade.”

The 2016 RDX gets an important performance boost courtesy of its new 3.5-liter SOHC i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) cylinder deactivation technology. Peak horsepower and torque output are up to 279 (+6 hp) and 252 lb.-ft. (+1 lb.-ft.), respectively, while sporting a broader torque curve for more immediate and powerful acceleration response—right where it counts. Variable Cylinder Management™ allows for deactivation of three of the engine’s six cylinders under light engine loads, helping the more powerful 2016 RDX increase its highway EPA fuel-economy ratings by 1 mpg, rising to 19/28mpg for AWD models and 20/29mpg for FWD models (city/highway).1 Driving refinement is further enhanced by new active front and rear engine mounts, updates to the steering control system and increased suspension mount stiffness. Additionally, the RDX’s available all-wheel-drive system – AWD with Intelligent Control – has been tuned for greater rear torque bias to further enhance dynamic stability and all-weather performance.

The 2016 RDX also gets key elements of Acura design DNA with restyled front and rear fascia, including the addition of Acura’s signature Jewel Eye™ LED headlights and LED taillights with light-pipe design on all models and a new three-dimensional grille treatment. All models also receive new wheel designs.

Inside, the new RDX gets a freshened look with a high-contrast silver and black trim plus significant upgrades to both standard and available luxury features and technology, including standard heated front seats and new second-row air-conditioning vents. The RDX with Technology Package adds a new 8-way adjustable power passenger’s front seat (4-way power in base models), Acura’s intuitive dual-screen On-Demand Multi-Information Display (ODMD), HD Radio®, blind spot information (BSI), Multi-view Rear Camera with dynamic guidelines and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor.

A new line-topping Advance Package for the 2016 RDX features unique machined alloy wheels (18″ x 7.5″) with painted gray inserts and adds rain-sensing wipers, front fog lights, Bi-Directional Keyless remote engine start, front and rear parking sensors, ventilated front seats, an auto-dimming driver’s side mirror and the full suite of AcuraWatch™ advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. Both the Technology and Advance packages can be equipped with the Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition™. All RDX models with AcuraWatch™ also get a new 4.2-inch full-color TFT Multi-Information Display with expanded, customizable information readouts such as average vehicle speed, fuel economy, fuel range, tire pressure monitoring system (TMPS) and turn-by-turn navigation prompts (when equipped with navigation).

While offered as standard equipment on the new Advance Package, all RDX models can now be equipped with the AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System™ and Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Departure Warning, along with the Expanded View driver’s side mirror.

In addition to the available AcuraWatch™ technologies, the 2016 RDX offers enhanced crash safety design with numerous changes to its Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure that further improve frontal collision performance. The 2016 RDX targets top-in-class safety ratings – a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The RDX continues to be produced at the company’s East Liberty, Ohio, plant, using domestic and globally sourced parts. In January, Acura marked the sale of its two-millionth North American-made vehicle in America. Last year, approximately 94 percent of all Acura models sold in America were made in the company’s plants in Ohio and Alabama.

2016 Acura ILX A-SPEC: Serious hard-edged-handling-performance has a refined side

2016_Acura_ILX_A-SPEC
For 2016 Acura took the under-appreciated ILX and gave it a much needed injection of hard-edged-handling and TLX i-4 derived engine and transmission. Has Acura gone too far with ILX street performance?

We’ll begin this article with a bit of praise for Acura design and engineering. The short story is this: Acura’s made all the right moves with the significant mid-model refresh of ILX. The body design captures the imagination while inspiring visions of tight-sweeping uphill turns and high speed straightaways; ILX looks fast while sitting in park! The color pallet and tire rim designs stand with the best in the segment; not too ostentatious, yet sport-stylish none the less.

Short overhang, low to the ground tendency with just enough Acura design cue to keep ILX in good company; on first view, we like what we see. As Mike Accavitti and company proudly states;“there’s nothing else quite like 2016 Acura ILX on the market today,” we agree, and A-SPEC punctuates Acura’s refreshed commitment to attainable sports-sedan performance.

Like no ILX you’ve ever driven

When opening the driver’s side door, one recognizes a nicely balanced interior of Acura understated quality. Our 2016 Acura ILX is the top of the line A-SPEC. One will discover a race inspired interior, breathable fabric, hand-stitched-looking high bolstered 8 way adjustable driver’s seat, perforated metal brake and gas pedal, red-lit dash gauges and just enough burnished metal to keep the interior look on the “racer’s edge”; it works!

Yes, Acura’s latest entertainment system, personal connectivity, passive and active safety features are available and handly accessed through an uncluttered touch-screen center dash monitor.

Gear shifting in the case of ILX is accomplished via a 5 position center console stick(P,R,N,D and sport.) For 2016, power is transferred to the road via a direct injected 201 horsepower 2.4 liter 16-valve DOHC 1-VTEC gasoline 4 cyl. engine, and paddle shiftable dual clutched- automated 8 speed transmission with torque converter and limited slip differential.

Instantaneous shift mesh and torque transfer, we found this transmission to work flawlessly

ILX is a Disneyland “E” ticket ride for adults looking from a daily dose of adrenaline, while retaining the ‘sense and sensibility of a well-finished compact performance sedan; Acura style…

Acura assures us that 2016 ILX holds the highest power to weight ratio in its class; we’ve driven it and we believe Acura; ILX performs!

201 horsepower, 181 ft-lb torque right where you need it, in the mid-range

Torque News appreciates the new found horsepower and torque experienced through ILX. The overall ride quality is exceptional for this Honda Civic sized Acura. When driven in a civilized manner, the ILX engine, transmission and suspension work in unison to produce a ride of relative comfort while averaging MPG 25 city/36 hwy; and yet when called for, Acura ILX steps up to double as a well tuned corner burner of extreme Flatitude ™ .

2016 Acura ILX in A-SPEC trim presents enough torque to keep you in Chiropractic adjustment with the drop of an F-Bomb and a flip of the stick to the “S” position. Add to the equation relatively stiff, suportive seating, suspension and low profile sidewall performance rated tires, one may wish to spend a week or two in the Gym prior to launching A-SPECK through some “S” turns; you’ll feel the ‘G” forces!

2016 ILX “Catch it if you can.”

Torque News has driven 2016 Acura ILX A-SPEC way beyond the track limits of most production cars; it revealed no signs of breaking; tracked flat and true with little to no sign of over or understeer. Although ILX is a true front wheel drive vehicle, most wouldn’t know, by driving it.

Acura is master at producing cars with split personalities

We’ve written much as to the performance sans premium attributes of 2015 TLX; in walks ILX, a bit more purpose built toward the compact performance side of the force; it will put your head back in the seat with conviction!

For entry-level or downsizing Acura fans wishing for a little less cutting edge handling-performance, 2016 ILX is offered in 6 trim levels priced from MSRP $27,900 to $34,890 + all applicable taxes and fees. All trim levels feature the high output direct injected i-VTEC engine, 8 speed transmission and standard convenience and safety features. You’ll find some very attractive standard features and option packaging here.

A final word or two

When measuring the broad and multiple faceted automotive attributes of 2016 Acura ILX, we discover a “portal” premium level compact sports-sedan worthy of serious purchase or lease consideration. ILX is truly “ageless” as to its broad demographic appeal; and while not the “perfect” choice for everyone’s “daily driver,” it does offer an uncompromising, financially attainable performance sedan platform for the weekend warrior; or the driver that simply yearns for a little entertainment while commuting.

In other words: 2016 Acura ILX A-SPEC features serious hard-edged-handling performance has a refined side; something that Acura does so well.

Ludacris, Legends And The New Acura NSX

Christopher Bridges, aka Ludacris, is famous for many things: being among the first successful hip-hop artists from the US southeast, starring in the highly successful The Fast and the Furious movie franchise, creating his own brand of cognac (Conjure) and sponsoring a not-for-profit foundation focused on youth education and leadership. He also happens to love cars.

In addition to brand new Bentleys, Ferraris, Rolls-Royces and Range Rovers, he has a special place in his collection for his favourite vintage ride: a 1993 Acura Legend sedan, which he has kept since he bought it. In fact, he’s such a fan of Acura that he was on hand to witness the unveiling of the brand’s new hybrid supercar, the 2016 NSX, at January’s Detroit auto show.

Once the car was unveiled and the scrum died down, Ludacris – or Luda to his fans – sat to answer a few questions about automotive innovation, car love and his latest fantasy car.

Brett Berk: So, this new NSX. Thoughts?

Ludacris: I love the way it looks. My immediate thoughts are that they really studied the competition. I see the influence of lots of supercars: a bit of the Audi R8, a bit of the Ferrari 458 Italia, even some of the new McLaren. Cars are like women. They’ve got to have curves. And this one has very nice curves.”

And what about your Legend?

I’ve got a 1993 Legend with over 230,000 miles on it. I bought it used in 1999 and I’m still driving it. It becomes a part of your life. A lot of times with men, we become one with our cars. So when it breaks down on you, you take care of it. You continue to treat it as if it’s a life partner. When you really love your car, that’s how you treat it, take care of it. You change the oil. You change the tires.”

Does that car love inform other areas of your career?

For a lot of men, a love of cars is a cultural thing. And I think that’s why the Fast and Furiousfranchise was so successful, because there’s so many car enthusiasts out there.

Is there any connective tissue between this new NSX and your ’93 Legend?

I think it’s years of innovation. Just [Acura] continuing to try to outdo themselves. A focus on engineering, on always making it better. Even on improving the aerodynamics, the way the air goes around the car so you have a smoother ride and better performance.

What was your first car? It wasn’t the Legend, was it?

My very first car was a Plymouth Reliant with a messed up wax job. Then I had a Honda. And then the Acura. The Acura was my third car.

Do you have a current fantasy car? Something you’d love to get in the future, something you’ve always wanted?

[Gestures at NSX] That right there! Come on, man. That’s my fantasy car. So hopefully, we’ll get it.

2015 Acura TLX Achieves Highest Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

  • Acura TLX is third new Acura model to earn highest possible safety ratings from both the NHTSA and IIHS
  • TLX is one of only three new midsize luxury/near luxury vehicles to earn top NHTSA and IIHS safety ratings
  • Acura brand is positioned for safety leadership with all models expected to achieve an NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score and IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating for 2016

Acura continues to advance its reputation as a safety leader and innovator with the 2015 Acura TLX receiving a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score, the top available rating in the U.S. government’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), including 5-stars in all six vehicle test modes. The Acura TLX performance luxury sedan, introduced in August 2014, has quickly become one of Acura’s best-selling vehicles and is one of only three 2015 model vehicles in the midsize luxury/near luxury category to earn both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating and the NHTSA 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score.

“The TLX exemplifies how advanced safety performance is an inherent part of how Acura delivers luxury,” said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager, Acura Division. “Safety is a core value of the brand and all 2016 Acura models are expected to earn top safety scores. When you think of safety performance and luxury, you’ll think Acura.”

Acura anticipates earning top NCAP and IIHS ratings for every model in its lineup for the 2016 model year. The brand currently has four models earning an NCAP 5-star Overall Vehicle Score: the 2015 ILX, TLX, RDX and MDX. The Acura RLX sedan has yet to undergo NCAP testing. Three models also earn a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS: the 2015 RLX, TLX and MDX.

Innovative Safety and Drive Assistive Technologies
The 2015 TLX was the first Acura model equipped with the exclusive AcuraWatch™, utilizing sensor fusion technology – the cooperative operation of a millimeter wave radar system and a windshield-mounted monocular camera – to expand both the scope and fidelity of the vehicle’s sensing capabilities, including the ability to sense and respond to pedestrians in the roadway and numerous road hazards. Acura is expanding the availability of its AcuraWatch™ suite of advance safety and driver-assistive technologies to all models for the 2016 model year.

Standard and available driver-assistive features in the AcuraWatch™ suite include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF)
  • Blind spot information (BSI)
  • Lane Keep Assist (LKAS) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
  • Multi-View Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines

The TLX also utilizes its next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) frontal body structure along with advanced airbags systems – including front, side and side-curtain airbags – to provide a high level of occupant protection in a wide spectrum of collision scenarios.

The award-winning TLX is one of Acura’s best-selling models. Designed to deliver a unique and compelling blend of sports-sedan dynamic proportion, premium luxury refinement and super-handling performance, the TLX is appealing to a broad cross-section of luxury customers with three new powertrains and advanced chassis technologies that respond intelligently to the will of the driver. The TLX lineup features three distinct model offerings that deliver new levels of quietness and ride comfort for a luxurious driving experience.

The Reviews Are In, 2016 ILX Is Fresh, Hot And Here!

reviews-of-2016-acura-ilx-top

The refreshed 2016 Acura ILX is here and the time to get excited is now. We could tell you about all the incredible features and impressive numbers on this vehicle (and we probably will), but instead of us telling you about it, why don’t we let the experts in the industry? We’re sure you’re more likely to trust an independent journalist, and having a whole lot of independent journalists saying the same thing should be doubly convincing. Lucky for us, the automotive world is already amassing a pretty large amount of praise. Let’s take a look at what some of the most respected publications in the country are saying about the 2016 ILX.

Autoblog

“Acura says the ILX already leads sales in the 16-to-35-year-old demographic; if the updated model is any indication, the Japanese carmaker should expect a new crop of brand enthusiasts to join the family.”

Autoweek

“If you’re looking for an entry-level sports sedan, you’ll definitely want to consider the 2016 ILX now. The new drivetrain has done wonders for Acura’s gateway vehicle, giving it adequate muscle to make a stand against the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz CLA.”

reviews-of-2016-acura-ilx-interior

Torque News

“No other brand in North America can touch ILX for standard added value features and baseline performance.”

SlashGear

“What you get from the 2016 ILX for your less-than-$30k is, then, pretty astonishing. The… Premium package is enough to put German rivals several steps up the pay ladder to shame, and AcuraWatch’s various collision warnings and such not only work well together, but legitimately improve the everyday experience behind the wheel.”

Auto World News

“The ILX exceeds our expectations as a driver’s car, making hours of back roads fly by—and that isn’t light praise”

DigitalTrends.com

“It’s fun, refined, and well priced. It’s good-looking, but not gaudy. And unlike the 2015 car, it has an impressive array of driver aid and safety tech. It’s without a doubt a step in the right direction.”
