Winning automotive races under grueling conditions is one thing. But what about bringing that racing spirit to cars and SUVs you can buy right now? Acura is one of only a few automakers who do just that.
Indeed, Acura pushes its International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) championship race cars to the limits of engineering and endurance. From there Acura takes what it learns at the track and uses it to help boost the engagement and exhilaration of its road cars.
There is more to building a credible premium performance vehicle than just competing and winning, though. From design and materials to comfort and technology, a modern Acura hits every mark.
You'll find this in every model Acura sells. It starts with its two SUVs, the compact crossover RDX and the three-row MDX. They are among Edmunds experts' top-rated models in their respective classes. Acura also sells its gateway ILX and midsize TLX sport sedans and, of course, its vaunted NSX mid-engine all-wheel-drive supercar.
Each model reflects Acura's triumphant performance on the track in its own way, especially when equipped with race-inspired A-Spec trim. Below is more detailed information about the ILX, TLX, RDX and MDX.
