NWAPA Run to the Sun: Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Wins Most Fun SUV

Sport utility vehicles have come a long way. No longer are they warmed-rigs work rigs that bounce over bumps and steer like a battleship. In fact, there are loads of good offerings if you’re looking for a SUV that’ll haul more than cargo. But in my experience, nothing does it with quite the gusto and style of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. And that’s why it won the Performance SUV category at Northwest Automotive Press Association’s 13th annual Run to the Sun. Whenever I’m behind the wheel of this Italian…

SEMA Flashback: Honda and Acura at SEMA 2018

The 2019 SEMA show runs from November 5th to the 8th, in Las Vegas. We’ll be on the ground with full coverage once the show starts, but until then, check out some of the vehicles were on display last year! 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…

Hybrid Halo: 2019 Acura NSX Review

If you’re a fan of high-performance vehicles, today’s automotive offerings might be better than any time before – including the muscle car era. That’s because you can walk into an AutoNation dealership and buy factory off-road race trucks (Ford F-150 Raptor), factory drag racers (Dodge Challenger 1320) and even factory road-racing cars, like the 2019 Acura NSX. On the weekends, you can see the Meyer Shank Racing NSXs (including the pink-and-black AutoNation-sponsored no. 86 car) hitting race circuits around North America in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, but on any…

Grade A: 2020 Acura RDX A-Spec SH-AWD Test Drive

If you’re in the market for a high-riding crossover or SUV, there seems to be no shortage of models anywhere. The luxury crossover market specifically is packed with choices, and I recently spent a week with one of the best-selling models in the segment — the all-new Acura RDX. It always surprises me that Acura as a brand is actually younger than I am. Founded in 1986, Acura was the first luxury brand from JDM automakers. It wasn’t until 1989 that Nissan’s INFINITI  brand and Toyota’s Lexus came to market….

Acura Type S Concept Shows What to Expect From Next-Gen TLX

The Acura Type S Concept isn’t some kind of crazy show car. Instead, it’s a preview of the forthcoming TLX. Of course, eagle-eyed viewers will catch that it does lack some features — namely door handles — that we’d expect to see on the consumer model, we don’t see much else that would have to be altered to put it in production. Overall, we have to say it looks the business, and it’s nice to see that Acura isn’t going all in on crossovers, as we’ve seen other manufacturers do…
