Overview of Acura Model Performance

Acura drives Precision Crafted Performance, bringing together creative minds and challenging spirits to enhance the partnership between car and driver. Our Acura engineers build openly and efficiently at our performance Manufacturing centre, designing their workstations and programming their assembly bots. Every Acura comes precisely engineered with a good dose of human common sense. Here are some of Acura's Powertrain performance features.


Acura Chassis and Handling

When it comes to Acura Chassis and Handling, Acura ensures power and precise handling and puts performance to every test. From slushing through the snow to tearing up sand, Acura vehicles endure countless hours of the most demanding conditions we can throw at them.

  • Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®): Acura engineers set out to bring the torque-vectoring technology of track vehicles to the street. That's how they built the revolutionary all-wheel-drive system that deliberately distributes power among the four wheels of the car for a performance gain that you can truly feel. The All-Wheel-Drive greatly enhances high-performance with the all-weather advantages of conventional all-wheel drive.

  • Sport Hybrid SH-AWD: The Sport Hybrid Performance uses Twin electric motors to enhance the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD effect to distribute torque for on-rails handling. On the NSX Acura, the Hybrid can deliver better fuel efficiency ratings without taking their foot off the gas.

  • Active Damper System: Our Active Damper System adjusts to road and driving conditions every few milliseconds.

  • Agile Handling Assist: Braking individual wheels help you smoothly and efficiently trace a desire line through a curve

Acura Powertrain

  • i-VTEC : Acura's Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control can increase your vehicle's horsepower by advancing valve timing relative to engine RPM.

  • Variable Cylinder Management: Variable Cylinder Management improves V6 fuel efficiency by running Acura on three cylinders during highway cruising.

  • Sport Hybrid 3-Motor System: Acura's exclusive drivetrain system uses electric power to improve efficiency, acceleration and handling.

  • Drive-by-Wire Throttle System: The Drive-By-Wire system varies throttle sensitivity to provide the appropriate response and fuel to different driving conditions.

  • 10-Speed Automatic Transmission: With sequential SportShift and Standard paddle shifters, Acura's Ten-speed Automatic Transmission takes full advantage of both turbocharged engines' high torque output. This offers a more comprehensive ratio range, more secrete gears, four-gear direct downshifts, and a lower gear than the Acura's previous Nine-speed automatic and eight-speed DCT.


Acura Body Structure

  • ACE™ Body Structure: Our Advanced Compatibility Engineering body construction comes designed to help reduce and disperse force in frontal crashes involving virtually all car sizes.

  • Multi-Material Space-Frame: The second-generation NSX goes beyond the all-aluminum space frame of the original, using a breakthrough combination of materials for structural safety and handling performance.

  • Ablation Casting: Ablation casting combines the strength of forged aluminum with precise, complex shape-forming capabilities.

  • 3D Bent-and-Quenched (3DBQ) Fabrication: Three-dimensionally bent-and-quenched ultra-high-strength steel tubing form the upper portion of a-pillars and roof rails.
