The Acura brand has always been at the forefront of the luxury car market for the past few decades. 2013 should be no different, with one notable exception: there are some hot, new models that this carmaker is trotting out that will make you swoon at their ultra-modern design. Here is what’s in store for Acura in 2013.
Watch Out For the Acura ILX
A small, upscale car, the 2013 Acura ILX retails for between $25,900 and $31,400, according to U.S. News and World Report. It’s making a splash in 2013 because of its combination of good, solid driving performance and a host of standard features. Even though it’s the smallest sedan in the Acura lineup, the ILX features a base engine that’s well designed for everyday driving tasks. You can also trade in engine power for a hybrid model.
Keep in Mind the Acura TSX
The 2013 Acura TSX is another entry in the small, upscale car market by this brand. What stands out immediately with this Acura is the well-designed and well-constructed interior, which is a perk for anyone driving or riding inside. Another standout feature is the car’s optional V6 engine, which is powerful, but also quiet and refined in city driving situations. That’s why the Acura TSX has generally fared better with critics than the ILX.
The Acura TL Is a Serious Contender
The 2013 Acura TL helps to show off the brand’s lineup of 2013 models in a favorable light. Regardless of concerns about this car’s exterior design, U.S. News and World Report ranks it at the top of its list of best upscale, midsize cars. This car got to the top of the heap due to its high-quality interior and well rounded handling performance.
Don’t Forget About the Acura RDX
The 2013 Acura RDX is Acura’s contribution to the luxury SUV market. The 2013 Acura RDX has gotten a total overhaul, making it almost a brand-new model. It comes with a 6-speed, automatic transmission and a powerful, V6 engine. This model used to have an outdated, 5-speed automatic transmission, but that’s one of the old features that has been tossed away as part of 2013′s redesign. Acura is a brand known for being upscale and luxurious. In 2013, this carmaker has decided to improve and overhaul many features on its vehicles and some models in its lineup. The result is an exciting lineup for this year.
