$35,095 - $40,195

Acura's sporty entry-level CUV has gone through a substantial overhaul for 2013. For starters, a new 273-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 with 251 pound-feet of torque replaces the turbocharged four-cylinder of 2012. Also gone are the five-speed automatic transmission and SH-AWD, both of which have been swapped for a six-speed auto (still with paddles) and a more efficient and lighter all-wheel-drive system (called All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control) lifted from Honda's CR-V. City/highway fuel-economy ratings for both front-wheel (20/28) and all-wheel drive (19/27) models improve as a result of the changes. A bevy of other new improvements promise a more enjoyable passenger experience. According to Acura, a cushier ride comes by way of all-new two-valve Amplitude Reactive Dampers that allow for a softer spring rate at each corner; the increased use of high-strength steel reduces weight, ups body stiffness, and minimizes road noise penetration into the cabin; smoother electronic power steering replaces the old hydraulic unit; a longer wheelbase, wider track, and improved center of gravity provide plenty of athleticism. Its exterior also boasts fresh sheet metal, offering a modern attractiveness that's bound to catch the eyes of the many young families Acura is targeting. Standard features inside the new cabin include heated and powered front seats, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, 60/40 rear folding seats, and 26.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats up.

Pros Cons
Driver seat comfort, and comfort of driving Gas mileage needs to be better
Incredible power, pick up and handling Ride smoothness in back seats - my wife says it is bumpy.
I like the navigation system; it is the easiest one to use. Ability to adjust rear view mirror - too close to roof.
Rear camera - this is very helpful for parking with the yellow liner Blind spots abound on the driver's side
The radio system sound comes across so clear, no interference Can not open or close hatch automatically
Super handling with all wheel drive Gps not to great. hard to enter information
Size of suv - perfect for small suv, yet still enough room. Cannot drink coffee in this car- too many bumps
Audio system - closest to surround sound that i've come across Console is at wrong height for arm rest
Has everything we want on vehicle without having to buy packages Technology is not up to date with competitive vehicles
Fit & finish of interior & exterior Glove box dumps out when opened
