The 2018 Acura TLX Improvements

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

The 2018 versions of Acura vehicles have notable improvements, including the TLX. The improvements are subtle but recognizable immediately through its sharper looks, faster digital tools and a nicer interior. Our CardinaleWay Acura dealership carries all of these Acura new cars and they are waiting to be discovered by you.

A new A-Spec trim package is available and it is an eye-catcher, thanks to the sporty look. The aggressiveness combines with a matte black grille, sinister wheels, a black spoiler on the lip of the trunk and a blacked-out air diffuser in the back. It is complimented by a full red leather interior.

Unlike competitor brands that are slow to embrace Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the TLX works seamlessly with the world’s most popular smartphones. It uses two digital screens on the center console so one can be used for phone purposes and the other can be used for vehicle functions. The screens are now touchscreen and is 30 percent quicker than the screens that have been implemented before. This is due to the better code on the processor hardware that makes the technology work faster.

The A-Spec is easily the best looking version, but all of the trim levels look good, thanks to the improved grille and newly refined front end. In the overall picture, the TLX is still the same value driven ride as before and is perfect for those looking for a good vehicle at a good price.

This encompasses all of the great improvements available for the new 2018 Acura TLX. Our CardinaleWay Acura has the best Acura customer service in Las Vegas and will work endlessly to help you find the perfect Acura for you.

Explore the Wonders of Venice at The Venetian

Monday, July 10th, 2017

If you haven’t yet visited The Venetian in Las Vegas, you’re in for a treat. This grand resort has just about all the highlights of Venice, including the Campanile Tower where Galileo first demonstrated his telescope to the Doge of Venice, to St. Marc’s square, to art installations, fountains and more. Make sure to find time to take a romantic glide on the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola, guided by your own singing gondolier. The Venetian has it all. CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas has it all when it comes to your transportation needs. We hope you’ll pay us a visit when you’re in the market for a new set of wheels. We have the latest Acura new cars and would love to set you up for a test drive.

Art at the Venetian

“Another Sky” is new installation in the Waterfall Atrium that debuted in June 2017. Artist Anne Patterson was inspired by the sky and tailored the installation to the unique architecture of the Waterfall Atrium. Another Sky features approximately 32 miles of reflective ribbon in the soaring 55-foot atrium ceiling.

“Acqua di Cristallo” stands in the center of the Palazzo Lobby. This unique water sculpture by Samuel G. Bocchicchio’s features translucent carved women on the sides of the sculpture, while water provides a coruscating effect that casts light all about the grand lobby of the hotel. This gorgeous work of art occupies two levels of The Palazzo, with its base on the ground level.


Take a Romantic Gondola Ride
Make sure to leave time for a romantic glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola. Your singing gondolier will take you under bridges and balconies, beside cafes and through the vibrant Venetian streetscape.  You can also choose an outdoor ride on the Strip.

Five of Acura’s Six Vehicles Are Built In Ohio

The 2017 Acura MDX now includes many new features and technologies, such as the AcuraWatch suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. These are now offered as standard equipment on all 2017 MDX models, a first in the luxury SUV segment.

East Liberty Plant
More than 2,300 employees staff the East Liberty Plant. The plant employs 2,350 technicians and has the annual capacity to manufacture 240,000 passenger cars and light trucks. The 2.8 million square foot plant started production in December 1989.

Acura Debuts the 2018 TLX A-Spec in Pikes Peak Open

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

Acura will have a fleet of vehicles taking part in the Pikes Peak Open. The turbocharged, 500-horsepower 2018 TLX A-Spec will compete in the exhibition class.

This is the sixth consecutive year that Acura will race vehicles in the Pikes Peak event.

2018 Acura TLX A-Spec Racing Debut
The Pikes Peak Acura TLX A-Spec has been modified for this hill climb course. Custom engine software and tuning was done in-house by a team of North American Honda R&D engineers. In addition, all luxury appointments were removed from the inside to reduce weight. Driver Nick Robinson has run the course for several years, winning the motorcycle Pikes Peak 250 class in 2014. Last year, Robinson won the Time Attack 2 Production class, driving the 2017 NSX.

Acura TLX GT Returns to Competition
The all-wheel drive TLX GT race car features the same twin-turbo V6 motor setup used in the Pirelli World Challenge series. It has been tuned on multiple levels to accommodate the elevation changes of Pikes Peak. The TLX GT will be driven by Peter Cunningham of RealTime Racing who has been racing Acuras since 1992. This is Cunningham’s first Pikes Peak race. He has won 14 professional drivers’ championships in a variety of disciplines including road racing, ice racing and performance rallying.

“I’ve always wanted to race with Acura at Pikes Peak. It’s a challenge I’ve never done,” said Cunningham.  “I think we have a great opportunity with the Acura TLX GT and look forward to seeing how it competes on the hill.”

Award-Winning Honda Environmental Film Series Features Film On Saving Sea Turtle Habitat in South Carolina

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Honda’s new film, “Generations: Sea Turtle Patrol of Edisto Beach State Park, SC,” explores the threats facing loggerhead sea turtles and the efforts of a committed group of state rangers, marine biologists and volunteers to protect critical sea turtle nesting habitat at Edisto Beach State Park. CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas is proud to be part of a company that supports initiatives like these. #Acura is owned by Honda.

The Film
The film documents the efforts of Edisto’s Sea Turtle Patrol, as they educate visitors, mark and protect nesting habitats and record inventories of the hundreds of nests along the shoreline. The film features footage of a 250-pound female turtle laying her eggs, the hundreds of baby turtles hatching after 55 days to embark on their journey to adulthood. The film educates viewers about the loggerhead’s life cycle and what they can do to help protect this species. Watch now: https://youtu.be/1G6uP2LDSwU

“While previous films in the Honda Environmental Series have highlighted remarkable initiatives dreamed up by Honda associates, we wanted to expand the series beyond Honda’s sustainability efforts,” said film series producer, Marcos Frommer of Honda North America, Inc. “Honda is proud to share the story behind Edisto’s Sea Turtle Patrol and support its efforts to increase sea turtle populations.”

Honda Donates Honda Pioneer 700 and Pioneer 1000 Vehicles
To support the conservation efforts, Honda donated its Honda Pioneer 700 and Pioneer 1000 side-by-side vehicles to Edisto Beach State Park. These vehicles enable state rangers to patrol long stretches of beach that serve as nesting habitat for loggerheads. The Pioneer 700 and 1000 are manufactured at Honda of South Carolina Mfg., Inc. (HSC) in Timmonsville, SC.

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.”

An Overview Of Acura’s Safety

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

Acura Safety

Acura has an impressive record of integrating safety features in its vehicles. It is the conviction of the carmaker that when you own and drive any luxury car, the experience should be highly enjoyable. While its designers and engineers focus on the various exhilarating feature’s of the various vehicles, one of the top priorities of Acura has been safety for its occupants.

For instance the RDX, TLX and ILX for the model year 2017 and the RLX and MDX models for 2016 have all been accorded with 5 start ratings on the side impact tests and the font crash tests of NCAP. The last two models for 2017 are yet to be tested.  The above mentioned vehicles have also earned five-star rating in the Overall Vehicle Scores.

But such an impressive performance in the category of crash testing is not new for this carmaker. In 2009, Acura had earned the distinction of becoming the maiden luxury brand to earn the a five-star rating from NHTSA in the category of crash safety for the side impact and front crash tests for all the models.

The same year saw Acura becoming the maiden carmaker to have all its models get a designation of Top Safety Pick from the IIHS or Institute for Highway Safety.  The 2016 models of RDX, MDX, RLX and ILX have all earned the ratings of Top Safety Pick+ and this is IIHS’ highest safety rating.

The engineers in Acura have always given high preference to the safety of the vehicles. Way back in 1987 which was even less than 12 months since the company made its debut, an airbag for the driver was provided as a safety feature for its Legend Coupe. It was more than a decade ahead of the agencies making the same mandatory in the cars.

Acura Sales Report for April 2016

Monday, May 30th, 2016

 Acura

As of May 3rd, 2016, Acura has a reported sales number as record-breaking for the month of April. Combined with Honda, Acura vehicles saw the sales of 148, 829 vehicles, a number that is up 14% from the previous month. The new monthly record was also broken for Honda, which sold 132, 623 vehicles with a 15.5% increase from their sales in April 2015. As for Acura, division sales went up to 16,206, a 9% increase from the April sales of last year.

Gaining so much as a foothold in the luxury vehicle segment is very difficult, yet Acura has managed to carve out a space for itself in this segment with much aplomb with record sedan and truck sales in April 2016. Even the RDX luxury SUV series showed a sales spike, and sedans sold at over 5,500 units in terms of the ILX gateway and the TLX performance luxury sedan modes. The ILX gateway sold around 1,633 units in April, while the RDX recorded 5,905 units sold.

All in all, with significant increases in sales numbers from the previous month, and indeed the previous year, both Honda and Acura are looking at remaining steady in the competitive automotive market this year. With Honda and Acura looking to develop automated cars, as evidenced with the recent testing of the second generation automated Acura, this is no reason to doubt that both brands will continue to maintain, if not exceed, their current sales numbers and projections for the next year. For more details, get in touch with CardinaleWay Acura.

TLX Efficiency, What You Need To Know

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

 2016-tlx-exterior-v-6-with-acessory-led-fog-lights-in-fathom-blue-pearl-blue-background-11

The all-new Acura TLX has been designed in such a manner that it’s equipped with precise control features that are further enhanced by its Super Handling All-Wheel Drive – SH-AWD™. It is a sophisticated and contemporary system that has been specifically designed for boosting high-performance and handling dry-roads. It also offers similar advantages in all weathers through its conventional all-wheel drive.

SH-AWD® offers great agility and effortless power transitions through continuous direction of engine power so that driver input, available traction and weight distribution can be matched.

  • Its system is equipped to continuously ascertain and balance the distribution of power between its rear and front wheels and also between individual rear wheels. It does so by continuously analyzing the steering angle, sped of the wheel, yaw rate and lateral G-force.
  • In order to further enhance the fuel efficiency, as much as 90 percent of the entire power is transmitted to its front wheels while cruising takes place in an absolute straight line.
  • During hard acceleration, weight gets shifted to its rear and 45 percent of the total engine power is transferred to its rear wheels by the SH-AWD® Thus complete advantage of extra and available traction is taken.
  • Understeer is further reduced by the TLX’s SH-AWD®. Moreover the latter enhances stability by making sure that its outside real wheel is revolved up to 2.7 percent faster as compared to its other wheels thus assisting in rotating the car while turning.

If you want to buy an Acura TLX, walk into CardinaleWay Acura today.
