Acura Restores Ludacris' 1993 Acura Legend To Its Perfect '90s Glory

You know why Chris “Ludacris” Bridges is such a cool guy? Because he still drives his 1993 Acura Legend from before he was famous. He calls it his dream car, and once you have your dream car, why drive anything else? But after a wreck (with 280,000 miles on the clock!) the folks at Acura decided to return it to its… »11/04/15 8:45am11/04/15 8:45am


Learning To Drive Like A Champion At Mid-Ohio In The Most Unloved Acura Ever 

I may be the last person you’d ever want on your endurance racing team. Success in motorsport comes with talent and and experience, and while I’m no stranger to the track—not always in good ways!—I’ve never done any actual wheel-to-wheel racing before. So when I was tapped to race Road & Track at Mid-Ohio with… »10/22/15 2:27pm10/22/15 2:27pm

This Acura Ad Is So Crammed Full Of Horseshit I Can't Even

You’d think some summer-blowout ad for the Acura TLX would be the usual, ignorable car-on-winding-road-with-VO boringness we’ve all grown the special ability to tune out. Acura has cleverly combated this by making their ads so full of subtly inane horseshit that it forces you to pay attention. To the stupid. »9/02/15 10:12am9/02/15 10:12am

Acura RDX vs. Mitsubishi Outlander: Is It Worth Spending An Extra $15K?

I’ve been wanting to do some really lopsided comparison tests — something along the lines of a Lamborghini Aventador vs. a Mitsubishi Mirage.

Unlike Most Of You, I Totally Understand The Acura ILX

Today I'd like to talk about Acura's ILX. Like the Audi A3, Mercedes (what an ugly face) CLA, BMW 2 series (sort of), and Buick Verano, the ILX is part of the entry level luxury group of cars that has been gaining popularity and promise to rake in more sales for luxury brands. But people have been mean to the little… »2/14/15 12:33pm2/14/15 12:33pm

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 1:37pm1/23/15 1:37pm
