Acura's clean design flagship four-door people mover features fresh exterior lines, a coddling high-tech cabin, and standout LED headlights and taillights. A choice of two engines reside under the hood: A top-tier 3.5-liter 370-horsepower direct-injected V-6 mated to an all-new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system, or a base 3.5-liter 310-horsepower V-6 with front-wheel drive. The former gets by with a six-speed automatic, while the latter boasts a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission for improved comfort and fuel efficiency (early estimates have both models achieving 30 mpg combined city/highway). If you're wondering, Sport Hybrid SH-AWD uses two electric motors at the rear wheels to send torque to the outside wheel when cornering hard; the inside wheel is 'regenerated' or slowed down. The front-wheel-drive model receives a Precision All-Wheel Steer system that points the rear wheels in the opposite direction of the front wheels to bump up grip and stability. Acura's engineers also honed handling performance by including their newly introduced Amplitude Reactive Dampers on each corner, revising the electric steering's settings, and stiffening the body with high-strength steel and aluminum. Interior appointments include twin LCD displays, a 14-speaker audio system, and a long list of safety technologies (Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Warning).
