Why there are no more stick-shift Acuras

If you were at all car-aware in the 1990s and 2000s, Acura was squarely on your radar. From the brand's first Legends, to the iconic Integra, to the follow-up RSX and the halo-status NSX, Acura's lineup always included something for the gearheads among us, complete with honest-to-goodness manual transmissions. » 1/23/15 1:37pm 1/23/15 1:37pm

Acura Botched Every Single Aspect Of The NSX Launch

The Acura TLX Fools You Into Thinking It's In Park So It Can Roll Away

Quietly competent if not terribly thrilling, the 2015 Acura TLX has won the hearts and minds of Normals everywhere, proving to be a strong-seller in its first few months on the market. It turns out it's kind of a prankster, too! » 12/09/14 2:30pm 12/09/14 2:30pm

The 2016 Acura ILX Dumps The Manual But Other Stuff Gets Better

It's hard out there for the Acura ILX. The Honda Civic-based sedan has faced stiff competition from the Mercedes-Benz CLA and Audi A3 in a fast-selling segment. So Acura had to up its game for 2016, and it's good and bad. » 11/20/14 1:20pm 11/20/14 1:20pm

Drive Flashback: The 1990 Acura NSX

More than $50,000 for a Japanese sports car? From a country that, a scant quarter-century ago, produced exercises in rolling gingerbread that slogged along with modified forklift engines? And from a company that, until recently, specialized in bread-and-butter sedans and zippy little commuter cars? Well, lo and… » 10/16/14 10:01am 10/16/14 10:01am

Acura May Go All AWD Because It's Working For Subaru

Acura has so completely forgotten what it is (handsome, nimble, well-built low-priced luxury) that it is going to give being Subaru a shot. They may go all-AWD. » 10/14/14 4:32pm 10/14/14 4:32pm

What's Your Favorite 10-Year-Old Car?

Jalopnik's passing the decade mark tomorrow, and so are some great cars. First to my mind is the third-gen Acura TL; a crisp six-speed manual option and NSX seats sprinkled just enough spice on Honda's luxury lineup to be interesting without ruffling the feathers of beige buyers.

The Acura EL Would Change Your Goddamn Life

I see your internal Rolodex spinning right now. "EL... EL.... I know there was an Acura CL, the TL, and the RL, but no EL. That's poppycock! Hogwash! Tomfoolery!"
