The Sport Hybrid Lineup: The Best of Acura

Anyone familiar with the Acura brand recognizes that its manufacturer is known, among other things, for producing high-performance vehicles. The geniuses behind the brand have decided to put forward 3 vehicles that already represent what the future of driving will be: The Acura Sport hybrid performance cars.

Let's take a look at the NSX, RLX and MDX, 3 hybrid models that offer impressive performance and up-to-date technologies.
 


Acura Sports Car: The Acura NSX in the Lead
 

The Acura NSX Hybrid Sport is undoubtedly the most distinguished vehicle of the trio. Available only as a coupé and with a silhouette that speaks volumes, this vehicle is the very embodiment of hybrid performance.

Its 3.5 liter turbocharged engine gives it a surreal 573 horsepower and the ability to reach a top speed of over 300 km/h (take our word for it)!

An RLX and MDX That Don't Give Up

The NSX may be the most powerful of the trio, but the RLX and MDX also have a lot to offer in the Acura sports car category.

For a "simple" sedan, the RLX holds its own more than adequately with 377 horsepower and 341 lb-ft of torque from its 3 high-performance electric motors.

The engine is accompanied by a 7-speed automatic transmission.

In an article for Le Guide de l'auto, automotive journalist William Clavey praises its driving pleasure and efficiency:

"The electric motors work in harmony to maximize available power. It's impressive to watch."

Finally, the MDX Sport Hybrid's family car appearances hide 321 horsepower of efficient power. It shows you that you don't have to choose between a family SUV or a performance vehicle: both coexist in this hybrid model!

In addition to adding power, one of the benefits of hybridization is reduced fuel consumption! The MDX, which is the largest of the three, manages to achieve fuel consumption of less than 10 L per 100 km in the city.

Here are a few figures on the performance of these three models that use hybridization to offer even more power:

Mechanics that Make All the Difference

In addition to their powertrains consisting of a high-powered gasoline engine and state-of-the-art electric units, a myriad of other world-class automotive engineering elements makes the Sport Hybrid lineup true masterpieces on wheels.

Not all all-wheel drive systems are created equal, and Acura's SH-AWD hurts the ego of those offered by the competition. The same analysis can be made of electric motors, which are not generally known for their breathtaking performance.

The direct-drive electric motor found on all three models makes acceleration exhilarating and improves torque ratio efficiency.

Advanced Technologies Inside

We won't go into detail about all the interior technologies that make every drive in an Acura Sport Hybrid a breathtaking experience, but again, take our word for it: you get what you pay for.

Among them, you can find:

  • A two-screen multimedia system

  • 12-speaker ELS Studio audio system with MDX

  • Bluetooth streaming

  • And much more!

Finally, safety and driver assistance technologies are also abundant:

  • Cruise control

  • Automatic high beams

  • Reverse gear sensors

  • And much more
