2013 - Acura Mdx on 2040-cars
Sunland, California, United States
Model Overview Acura's MDX is a mid-size utility vehicle and comes powered by a strong 3.7L V6 engine, making 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. With its 6-speed automatic transmission, the MDX provides strong acceleration, good responsiveness for passing and smooth shifts for more leisurely driving. A tall sixth gear assures relatively quiet cruising.Acura's so-called Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system is standard on the MDX. As a full-time all-wheel drive system, it can fine-tune the amount of torque not only between the front and rear but also from side to side. It also works with the stability control system to help provide added security when handling, or in snow or mud. The MDX is just rugged enough for two-tracks and modest forest trails, but its forte is on-road performance. Its front MacPherson strut suspension and multi-link rear suspension are carlike in concept, but they're mounted on isolated subframes to filter out the most jarring impacts. An Active Damper System is optional on the MDX and allows the driver to choose between "Comfort" and "Sport" handling settings. The MDX's interior is truly worthy of its luxury badge, with upscale materials, leather upholstery, LED interior lighting all around and plenty of sound insulation to filter out road noise. There are three rows of seating for up to seven passengers. >>The included Technology Package adds a long list of impressive tech features--including a navigation system, voice recognition, real-time traffic with traffic rerouting, hard-drive media storage, a solar-sensing tri-zone climate control system that automatically adjusts to the sun's position and an awesome Acura/ELS surround sound system. This features ten speakers, plus DVD-Audio, Bluetooth Audio, a USB port and XM satellite radio, along with 15GB of its own music storage. >>The included Rear Seat Entertainment Package helps keep the kids engaged and fuss-free on longer trips; it includes a 9-inch rear color screen, DVD player, dual wireless headphones, a remote and a 115-volt household-style AC outlet.

Over the last decade or so, many foreign automakers have challenged the idea of what defines an "American car," but Honda took things a step further last year by exporting more cars out of the US than it imported in. Reuters is reporting that in 2013, a total of 108,705 Honda and Acura models were exported from the US with only 88,357 being shipped in. This gives Honda a net exporter status here, and makes it the first of such among the major Japanese automakers.
Honda's US imports have been dropping over the last five years while its exports have been steadily increasing. In 2008, the report indicates that Honda shipped 187,000 vehicles to the US and exported only 20,000, and even by 2012 Honda still favored imports with 136,000 imports and 74,000 exports. The article says that US-made Honda and Acura vehicles were exported to 50 countries with most ending up in Mexico, but the big news is that the Honda's US production set a record in 2013 with 1.3 million units built.
Nine years separated the arrival of the original Acura NSX and the Honda S2000. By that time, the NSX was closer to the end of its fifteen-year production cycle than it was to its beginning. The latest word has it that not only is Honda planning a successor to the S2000, but it's not about to wait that long after the new NSX arrives before it's rolled out.
While the S2000 was a front-mid-engined roadster, its successor will, according to the latest from Auto Express (which we are taking with a grain of salt), be a mid-engined coupe - closer, in other words, to the NSX than the S2000. Power would come from a more potent version of the 2.0-liter turbo four developed for the upcoming new Civic Type R, possibly as part of a hybrid system derived from Honda's upcoming Formula One powertain to develop over 400 horsepower.
Whether the new sports car would revive the S2000 nameplate, and whether it would wear the Honda or Acura badge in the United States, remain to be seen. As does its potential production site: while the previous S2000 was built at the same Takanezawa plant in Tochigi as the original NSX, the new NSX will be built at the new Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio. The new S660 roadster, meanwhile, is set to be assembled at the same Yachiyo plant in Yokkaichi as the original Honda Beat.
Not wanting to be left out of the emerging luxury car bonanza in China, Automotive News is reporting that Acura could begin producing vehicles in the Asian country by 2016. Like Audi, Mercedes-Benz and BMW, Acura will reportedly build vehicles in China using a local partner - Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. in Acura's case - while Cadillac and Infiniti will build their own vehicles locally.
Guangzhou already produces Honda models in China, but the article says that the first Acura produced in that country could be a new compact model based on the Acura SUV-X Concept (shown above), a showcar revealed in April at the Shanghai Motor Show. China's luxury car market is expected to grow to 2.7 million units a year by the end of this decade, which would put it on pace to make it the largest premium car market in the world.
