Race-Ready Rockets: Honda and Acura at SEMA 2018

There’s no two ways about it: The small, affordable, fun-to-drive cars that defined Honda and Acura in the early 1990s created a generation of enthusiasts. And in recent years, both companies have embraced that legacy, and released some of the most exciting cars we’ve ever seen from either marque. So to highlight the recent pivot toward performance, both booths for SEMA 2018 were heavy with hot hardware.

Shaking Up the Segment: 2019 Acura RDX Test Drive

2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Test Drive Review

Hybrid vehicles promise more than just better fuel economy. Besides just improving fuel-efficiency and helping you save some money at the pump, hybrid vehicles promise better performance and a more comfortable ride experience. To emphasize that point, Acura is taking the word ‘Hybrid’ and adding the word ‘Sport’ in front for its new Sport Hybrid lineup of vehicles. Instead of focusing on fuel economy, Acura is playing into the fact that hybrids offer better performance and is wrapping it all in a nice luxurious package. The highlight of Acura Sport…
