Honda's luxury brand strives to challenge rivals like Lexus and Infiniti as it aims for more sales with a growing lineup. Read on to learn more more about all of the new Acura cars and SUVs, as well as updates to existing models.
2013 Acura ILX
The Honda Civic-based ILX is all new to Acura's lineup for 2013. Three engines are offered: a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, a more powerful 2.4-liter 4-cylinder for extra performance and a hybrid drivetrain that returns nearly 40 mpg in combined city and highway driving.
2013 Acura MDX
The midsize MDX crossover returns unchanged for the 2013 model year.
2013 Acura RDX
Acura's RDX SUV is completely redesigned for 2013, growing in size and adding a new 3.5-liter V6 in place of last year's turbocharged 4-cylinder. Other updates include a standard keyless access system with push-button starting and a new 6-speed automatic transmission.
2014 Acura RLX
We don't expect to see Acura's flagship RL model return for 2013, as the automaker is readying its successor, the RLX, for a debut at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show as a 2014 model. (Acura RLX concept shown.)
2013 Acura TL
Following substantial changes for the 2012 model year, Acura's popular TL midsize sedan is unchanged for 2013.
2013 Acura TSX
Acura's compact TSX sedan is unchanged for 2013, as is its 5-door Sport Wagon variant.
2013 Acura ZDX
The ZDX is only available in one trim for 2013, which Acura says is the crossover's last model year. In addition to minor stylistic updates to its exterior, the ZDX adds newly standard front and rear parking sensors and power folding side mirrors.
