Breakthrough performance gives you a closer connection to the road.
2019 Acura Our Story Performance NSX driving front view
Performance happens when driver and machine work together as one. When the car becomes an extension of the driver’s will. When you stop thinking about control and begin to feel it. That’s performance we measure not on a stopwatch, but in our hearts.

If there’s a Problem, Embrace It
Just 18 months before launch, our engineers faced a dilemma: They’d made a supercar, but it wasn’t yet an NSX. They went back to the drawing board and delayed the launch, re-configuring the chassis and developing an all-new engine. You only get one shot at reinventing an icon.
Innovation is our obsession. When you look at our cars, you see it. Every refinement across the entire model line results in better performance on the road.

Sport Hybrid Performance
We saw a better way for hybrids and took it, engineering the NSX, RLX and MDX sport hybrids to deliver pressed-back-in-your-seat exhilaration. We built on the principles of our revolutionary Sport Hybrid – All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD® ) system to achieve dynamic handling, immediate acceleration, fuel efficiency and all-wheel drive stability.
Acura engineers set out to build a revolutionary all-wheel drive system that would strategically distribute power among the wheels for a performance gain that would surpass any other drive system out there. The resulting Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) is available in RLX, TLX, MDX and RDX.

Precision All-Wheel Steer
Because Acura is the innovation playground for Honda, we pushed the limits of the beloved front wheel drive system. The world’s first Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®) system on a production vehicle changed the game, adjusting the rear wheel toe angles independently for increased agility and stability. See it in the TLX and RLX.
To ensure power and precise handling, we put performance to every ultimate test. From slushing through snow to tearing up sand, our vehicles endure countless hours of the harshest conditions we can throw at them.
