Say Hello To Green Car Journal’s 2017 Luxury Green Car of the Year

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

CardinaleWay Acura is proud to announce that our NSX was named Green Car Journal’s “2017 Luxury Green Car of the Year.” This second generation NSX was up against other contenders in its class, such as the Mclaren, BMW and Porsche. Once you see this complicated, user friendly, tech driven sport hybrid, you’ll know why it was awarded its new title.

 

The Meaning of “Green”

The term “Green” might mean something different and be more broad than what you might think. It can especially mean multiple things in the automotive world of critique and design. It is not always defined in ZERO carbon emissions or innovative fuel efficiency. Our NSX, however, excels at both of these when compared to others in the elevated segment. The track to “Green” takes time rather than “leaps and bounds” when it comes to the world of future manufacturing and automotive design.

 

What Makes The NSX Stand Out

Ron Coga, Green Car Journal’s publisher, was astonished at how polished the #NSX drove on the street in “normal” mode. Our Acura manufacturer made sure that the supercar performs just as well on the road as it does on the track. It definitely has two personalities. Ron notes the interior cabin as being supportive yet comfortable, surprisingly quiet and not restrictive as one might expect in a supercar.

  • If you haven’t done so recently, flush your radiator
  • Get an oil & filter change and have them put a new air filter in, as well

New Acura Experience at Sundance 2017

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

Acura 2

CardinaleWay Acura is excited to share what our Acura manufacturer debuted at the #Sundance Film Festival. It was a unique virtual driving experience called “Mood Roads.” This was the seventh year Acura was the official vehicle of the festival and we couldn’t be prouder.

What This Experience Was All About

The world is certainly your mood ring in this one-of-a-kind psychedelic looking pod. The virtual driving experience used brainwave technology to dive into 30 of the user’s cognitive, emotional and physical senses to create a custom encounter. The color, music and landscape adapted to fit the mood of its user. Acura bragged about “Mood Roads” as “a highly personal 90-second journey with no two experiences being identical.” We saw the teaser video and 100% agree!

 

The Inspiration Of The Experience

Jon Ikeda, our General Manager and Vice President of Acura said, “The Sundance Film Festival is both a platform for groundbreaking filmmaking and a showcase of innovative film technology, and the Acura ‘Mood Roads’ experience offers the tech-minded audience a unique merging of automotive and virtual technology they have never experienced before.” The experience was inspired by our NSX supercar’s SH-AWD system. Each ride was uniquely designed with diverse sound effects influenced by not only the NSX, but other Acura vehicles, as well.

 

Other Attractions At The Festival Village

In addition to the Virtual Reality Pod, we saw a full-size NSX ice sculpture and a relaxation lounge. Our favorite aspect at the Village was the Acura Studio. Mounted in the press junket space was the hood of an NSX, which Acura encourages celebrities to sign. An auction of the hood is planned to benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

 

Come See Us At CardinaleWay Acura

If you weren’t able to make it to Sundance this year, you can still see an out-of-this-world NSX in our showroom. Your experience at CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas will put you in a great mood, much like being at Sundance. Visit our website at www.cardinalewayacura.com for more about our new and preowned vehicles.

Update on CardinaleWay Acura’s MDX Production Location

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Acura MDX

In early January, CardinaleWay Acura learned exciting news about our ever-so-popular luxury SUV. Company officials at the North American International Auto Show revealed that production of the #MDX would be moved to East Liberty, Ohio.

 

Where It Was Made Previously

Acura is the luxury brand of the Honda corporation. The MDX had previously been made solely in Alabama. In 2016, Honda announced that production of our SUV would be split between Alabama and East Liberty, Ohio, where the Honda CR-V was also made. Now that the time has come, it looks like a shift has occurred and the MDX will be produced solely in East Liberty.

 

Why Production Is Being Transferred

The change really comes down to capacity utilization and flexibility. Now, almost all of the Acura manufacturer production will be based in Ohio. Our ILX and TLX sedans are assembled in Marysville, Ohio. Marysville also houses a specialized plan for our NSX supercar. The RDX crossover, and now the MDX, are assembled in East Liberty. The only vehicle not produced in Ohio is the RLX. This sedan is a light seller that is assembled in Japan. Moving production of the MDX from Alabama frees up space for production of other Honda models. Partial CR-V assembly will now be at the plant in Indiana.

 

Why You Should Stop By CardinaleWay Acura

We promise you’ll receive top notch customer service at our convenient Acura Las Vegas location. If you’re in the market for a luxury SUV like the MDX, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can check out our full list of inventory and schedule an appointment at www.cardinalewayacura.com.

This Is It. The 2017 Acura TLX.

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Acura TLXOur performance luxury sedan is nothing short of perfection. With three engine choices, four driving options and state of the art safety features, taking home the #2017TLX is never a bad idea. Let’s dig deeper into what this powerhouse has to offer.

 

Your driving experience will be enhanced every time you get behind the wheel of the TLX. The world’s first ever P-AWS technology or available SH-AWD handling system will give you the feeling of control. With the Precision All-Wheel Steering system, changing lanes, cornering or braking will be more stabilized because the toe angle of the rear wheels adjusts independently. The Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system allows the power to be distributed only when it’s needed.

 

No matter what kind of mood you’re in, there’s a driving option waiting for you with the Integrated Dynamics System. The Normal mode blends handling and comfort to give just the right amount of efficiency and performance. In the Econ mode, the cooling process and sensitivity are slowed, providing consistant speed in order to maintain its fuel efficiency. Be prepared for a little more engine noise with the Sport mode. It’s great if you’re looking for firmer steering and responsiveness with SH-AWD or P-AWS. Lastly, power is increased and paddle shifters are put into manual mode in the Sport+ option.

 

Keeping passengers, and yourself, safe is our biggest priority. The Acura manufacturer made sure to add top-notch safety features to the TLX. Its Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, or ACE, is comprised of an aluminum hood, hot-stamped door frame ring and magnesium instrument panel harness, all helping to disperse impact force in front collisions. We’ve even gone one step ahead with the CMBS. This Collision Mitigation Braking System is set up to detect objects ahead and determine closing speed and distance. Seat belts will tug and the brakes will kick in to remind drivers to take precaution. Accidents, however, are at times unavoidable. The system is designed to reduce force and impact when an unfortunate situation arises.

 

Acura TLX 2017

Another standard safety feature is the Vehicle Stability Assist. This VSA system combines ABS with various sensors to monitor individual wheel speeds, lateral G-force, yaw rate, throttle position, vehicle speed and steering angle. Engine speed is reduced and brakes are applied as needed when the potential for under or oversteering is detected or loss of traction occurs. A sense of awareness comes with the TLX, too. Whether it be the adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist or blind spot information system, you’ll drive with confidence and feel protected behind the wheel.

 

We might be the Gambling Capital of the World but you surely won’t be gambling when choosing the 2017 TLX. Please don’t hesitate to check out our complete list of Acura new cars at www.cardinalewayacura.com. Feel free to stop by CardinaleWay if you’re in the area! We can’t wait to show you what we’re all about.

The Ins And Outs Of The 2016 Acura RLX

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Acura Rlx

When it comes to a safe and reliable luxury sedan, the 2016 Acura RLX doesn’t skip a beat. In a class of large vehicles, it has the highest safety rating. Not only will you feel secure when you take a ride through Sin City in this model but you’ll unquestionably feel the power it has under its hood.

 

Safety is one category you hope ranks high when looking for a new vehicle. Our customers will be happy to hear that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the RLX five-stars in its crash test rating. It also earned a Good rating in all five crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Our Acura manufacturer covers the 2016 RLX with a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty and a four-year/50,000-mile warranty.

 

The RLX is also equipped with driver assistance features that help our customers drive with confidence. Lane departure and forward collision warning features come standard in the vehicle. If you accidentally drift or the vehicle in front of you stops suddenly, the lane departure warning system will alert you. Another standard is adaptive cruise control which lets you select a short, medium or long following distance behind the vehicle in front of you. Typically, cruise control is used during highway driving, but our adaptive cruise control feature works well driving at slower speeds on city streets. Additional add-on options include front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera, lane keep assist and blind spot monitoring. These features will definitely keep our drivers feeling comfortable whether attempting to pull into a tight parking spot or driving in a relentless Las Vegas traffic jams.

 

Aside from safety, the front-wheel drive #RLX also performs impressively while earning an EPA-estimated 31 miles per gallon on the highway and 20 mpg in the city. In the luxury large vehicle class, it has one of the best fuel economy ratings. Hard to believe when there’s a V6 engine under the hood. Although the six-speed automatic transmission is quiet and responsive, drivers can improve acceleration by revving up the engine to higher rpms before shifting in the sport mode. In 2016, Acura introduced an all-wheel drive Sport Hybrid RLX able to produce 377 horsepower. We see three additional electric motors combined with the same V6 engine as our base RLX. This model receives a striking EPA-estimated 32 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg in the city.

 

If this sounds like the type of vehicle that would work well for you, please don’t hesitate to visit www.cardinalewayacura.com for a list of our current inventory. Our convenient Acura location on West Sahara Ave makes it a breeze to stop by and take a test drive. We look forward to seeing you soon at CardindaleWay Acura!

December Acura Sales Records At All Time High

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

acura logo 2

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. reports that both Honda & Acura vehicles ended 2016 at a record high. Breaking all-time annual sales records, the numbers rose 6.4% from 2015’s record. Combined, the trucks nabbed not only a new monthly, but also yearly record, rising 17.4% in December and 5.6% in all of 2016.

 

In 2016 the Acura manufacturer annual sales were 161,360. In December, Acura sales were up 1.9% over the same month in 2015. Car and truck totals were 17,148 combined. Our trucks, however, gained 8.9%. For the third year in a row, Acura truck sales exceeded 100,000. With sales of 12,188 in December, #Acuratrucks record the best month in the manufacturer’s history. The midsize RDX gained 20.3% in December with 5,945 vehicles sold and 2.6% for the year with 52,361 sold; best-ever totals. Our popular MDX saw its best sales month of the year and for the fifth straight year exceeded 50,000 units. It remains the all-time best-selling luxury three-row SUV in America.

 

In the sedan category, the RLX made a significant gain in December and TLX sales were up, as well. December 2016 was the best month yet for our second-generation NSX, with 68 supercars sold.

 

Jon Ikeda, who is vice president and general manager of our Acura division said “With Acura trucks leading the way and the TLX performing strongly in a challenging market for sedans, we were able to finish our 30th anniversary year on a strong note. We’re excited to carry this momentum, with a strong future vision for Acura, into the new year.”

 

We certainly agree with Jon and look forward to contributing to record breaking numbers in 2017. Check out a complete inventory of our vehicles at www.cardinalewayacura.com.

Quick Preview Of The 2017 Acura RLX

Monday, January 16th, 2017

2016-rlx-exterior-with-advance-package-in-slate-silver-metallic-brick-road-11When the Acura manufacturer decided to replace the RL in 2014, the RLX was debuted. This flagship luxury sedan has a lot to offer. Whether you’re looking for the basic model or a speedier version, the #2017AcuraRLX is a must have for our technology driven customers.

 

The Acura RLX doesn’t see many changes in its 2017 model. The only updates this year are streamlined trim levels, leaving customers with an Advance or Technology Package to choose from. A standard option delivers 310 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque in its simpler 3.5-liter V-6. Only the front wheels are spun by its V-6 which is mated to a 6-speed automatic engine. Its drivers will notice stable driving at high speeds and easy maneuverability at lower speeds with a four-wheel-steering system.

 

If you’re looking for something with a little more power you will want to go with the Sport Hybrid RLX. It puts our German rivals to shame when it comes to the powertrain department. You can’t help but notice 341 pound-feet of torque and 377 horsepower when you first start the engine. Its through-the-road hybrid all-wheel-drive system is formed with a V-6 engine combined with three electric motors. This tamer version of what you will see in our NSX supercar comes at a tamer price, as well.

Acura Rlx

The Technology Package comes standard with a navigation system, LED headlights, 19-inch wheels, and the AcuraWatch suite of electronic driving aids. Included features are rear cross traffic alert, blind spot and lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control. Heated seats and steering wheel, sun shades, remote engine starter, a 14-speaker sound system and power-folding side mirrors come with the Advance Package.

 

It’s safe to say that the 2017 Acura RLX is a must-see. Check out our full inventory of Acura new cars as well as our used vehicles at www.cardinalewayacura.com.

The NSX Returns After A 12 Year Absence

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

acura logo 2

 

Head to the casino in style in our all new 2017 Acura NSX. This over the top supercar combines electric power technology and our latest engine with sports-car handling, all while boasting an exquisite futuristic design. Our newest Acura manufacturer family member definitely gives its competitors a run for their money.

 

It’s safe to say that if you show up in the #2017NSX you will have all eyes on you. With only 3.7” of ground clearance, passengers will feel like they’re falling when they sink into the low, sculpted seats. Get ready to enjoy 42.8” of legroom and 38.3” of headroom. This beauty certainly doesn’t blend in at 87.3 inches wide.

 

The NSX is a gasoline-powered, high performance, fuel-efficient sports car that does not disappoint. Drivers get 573 horsepower and 476 foot-pounds of torque with the 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6. You can find your engine behind the seats and it works in tandem with the electric motors. Whether you plan on taking a cruise through Sin City or test out its top speeds at the Motor Speedway, the NSX will feel quick and responsive under your feet.

 

Our customers will be happy to hear the 2017 NSX avoided the Federal Government’s gas guzzler tax. We also see a 17% improvement in the new model when it comes to mpg. It has been rated at 22 miles per gallon for highway driving and 21 mpg in the city.

 

Acura NSX

 

You may make a grand statement, but the 2017 NSX comes at a hefty price. Although its one of the lower priced sports cars of its kind, the suggested retail price is still a whopping $157,800. If you decide on upgrading your new toy with carbon-ceramic brake rotors or carbon fiber pieces, expect to fork over more than $200,000.
