The new model debuts coincide with Acura’s 25th anniversary in Canada. “Over the next three years, the Acura brand will launch a series of new models that will remake our product lineup and shake up the luxury market,” said Alexandre Roger, assistant vice-president of Acura in Canada.
The 2013 RDX will be the second generation of Acura’s five-passenger crossover SUV and will advance performance and fuel efficiency through a new engine, transmission and all-wheel drive system. Scheduled to launch this spring, it will use a 3.5-litre V6 engine producing 273 horsepower with a six-speed automatic transmission and new lock-up torque converter.
The new 2012 Acura TSX A-Spec is the first in a line of appearance trims that will build on Acura’s design direction, including luxurious suede seating seating surfaces, red accent stitching, red interior lighting, unique wheels with high-performance summer tires, and an aero package.
