Acura has an excellent line up of cars available to fit any driver’s wish list if they want an accurately priced luxury automobile. While Europe has dominated the luxury market for a while, it has been overshadowed as of late by automakers like Acura who are putting the same luxury into cars that are far less expensive. Fun to drive, excellently engineered, and eye catching cars like the TSX or the ILX are hitting the road in style, and SUVs like the MDX or the RDX are ready to move off the pavement if the need arises.
Another excellent entry level luxury sedan, although smaller than the TSX, is the Acura ILX. Another burgeoning group of automobiles, the luxury compact sedan has a look and feel all its own. The ILX is another loaded vehicle in the Acura line up. The power plant for the ILX is either a 2.0 liter four cylinder that puts out 150 horse power at 140 pound feet of torque with front wheel drive and a five speed automatic, or a 2.4 liter four cylinder that pushes 201 horse power at 170 pound feet of torque which comes with a six speed manual.
The 2.0 liter holds a decent 0-60 miles per hour time at around 9 seconds and a great fuel economy with 24 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles to the gallon on the highway. The 2.4 liter made it to 60 miles per hour from a stop in 7.1 seconds and sees an estimated fuel economy of 22 city miles per gallon and 25 highway miles per gallon*.
One of the best vehicles in the Acura line up is their SUV, the Acura MDX. With sport tuning, an excellent engine, and top of class fuel economy another fully-loaded Acura is a great option for a luxury automobile. The engine in the MDX is a 3.5 liter V-6 that produces 290 horsepower at 267 pound feet of torque with standard front wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive version moves from 0-60 miles per hour in 6.8 seconds. Estimated fuel economy for the front wheel drive is 20 city miles per gallon and 28 miles per gallon on the highway*, while the all wheel drive sees that estimate drop a bit to 18 miles to the gallon in the city and 27 highway miles to the gallon*. The transmission on the MDX is a six speed automatic.
