Acura Powertrain

Chassis and Handling

With its innovative double wish bone suspension design, Acura's deliver more precise control of the wheel while driving and enhanced tire-to-ground contact for better handling and traction. With its all-wheel drive options both in its Super Handling form as well as the sport hybrid, high-performance handling and all-weather capabilities are only a few of the many advantages you will experience when driving an Acura. Acura's also offer an Active Damper System, which adjusts to road and driving conditions to bring a driving experience like no other.

Body Structure

Acura's unique and innovative body structure is unmatched. Their Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ is designed with safety in mind. It's made to help reduce and disperse front collision damage from virtually any car size. With safety at the forefront, this design helps to protect you, your family, and your car from maximum damage. Ultra-high-strength 3D crafted steel tubing is used to form the roof rails and upper portion of the A-pillars. The frame is not only built with aluminum, like it once was. Using a breakthrough combination of materials, Acura brings structural safety together with dynamic and easy handling for the ultimate experience.

Sport Hybrid Performance

Acura has changed the game when it comes to sport hybrid models. With better fuel efficiency, more power with improved acceleration, and enhanced technologies, the sport hybrid performance is unmatched.

Super Handling All-Wheel Drive

With improved agility and traction, Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD®) offers power and control like no other. The SH-AWD brings torque-vectoring technology off the track and onto the road, with the option available on the NSX, TLX, MDX and RDX Acura models.


Acura's powertrain brings new meaning to efficiency. Its 10-speed automatic transmission takes full advantage of Acura's turbocharged engines and its high-torque output. The Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC®) offers increased horsepower, the Variable Cylinder Management® (VCM) offers improved V6 fuel efficiency during highway drives, and the Drive-by-Wire Throttle System™ offers varied throttle sensitivity; all combined, these powertrain features bring power and efficiency only seen in an Acura.

Testing the Hard Way

We understand that in this life, anything can happen. That is why we pride ourselves on selling Acura's that go through extensive testing procedures and protocols to ensure that our cars are safe and secure no matter the situation. Desert sand tests are done in which vehicles are pushed to their extremes at top speeds for long durations, Acura finds any issues and fixes them before releasing them. Other testing environments include a dedicated shake room to test durability and interior and exterior wear and tear, and a wind tunnel test, to test aerodynamics, fuel efficiency, and sound levels. All faults that are found throughout these tests within any Acura vehicle gets fixed and retested before being released. This ensures that every vehicle that gets put out is in quality condition delivering the perfect driving experience for all.
