Performance Innovation

The team at Acura doesn’t simply sit around and wait for ideas to come to them. They get together to make ideas happen. And that all starts with performance. Some of the biggest groundbreaking performance technologies brought to you by Acura include:

  • Sport Hybrid Performance: Going green doesn’t mean compromising performance, as Acura’s sport hybrids offer exhilarating acceleration and responsive driving dynamics. Check it out on the Acura MDX.
  • Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®): This pioneering take on all-wheel drive is able to carefully deliver power between the four wheels based on driving conditions and behavior. Check it out on the Acura TLX.
  • Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®): An industry first, this drivetrain is able to adjust the toe angles of rear wheels independently to help improve the vehicles stability and maneuverability. Check it out on the Acura RLX.

Pushing the Bar

In addition to our groundbreaking work on the performance front, Acura has also pushed the industry forward with a variety of “world first” innovations, including:

  • Intelligent Variable Valve Timing (iV-TEC®) and Lift Electronic Control: This technology advances valve timing relative to engine rpm to increase horsepower.
  • Variable Cylinder Management (VCM): With V6 vehicles, VCM allows the engine to run on 3 cylinders while highway cruising.
  • Drive-by-Wire: To deliver the right response and feel for driving conditions, this system varies throttle sensitivity.
  • Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT): These performance-focused transmission systems offer more efficient, faster, and smoother shifting.
  • Chassis and Handling Systems: Amplitude Reactive Dampers, an Active Damper System, and Agile Handling Assist all improve handling in a wide range of driving conditions for safer and more exciting drives.
