Hyundai needs hp to attract people. Nothing else about the brand is appealing other than being the cheapest. The more expensive ILX will even outsell Genesis.

Everyone compares Hyundai to Suzuki:

2013 Acura RL to Feature NEX Hybrid System & Eventual 9-Speed Auto?
In a separate report, Acura is claimed to be exploring the use of ZF’s latest nine-speed automatic transmission technology. Automobile, citing an inside source, said Acura may adopt the nine-speed automatic as early as 2014 as an alternative to its existing automatic, CVT and dual-clutch units.

Fortunately, we won't have to wait too long now for the reveal of the 2013 Acura RL as press days for the 2012 New York Auto Show commence on April 4.

2012 Acura RL Replacement Named RLX
Particularly in the full-size sedan arena the show will be an interesting one – Chevrolet Impala, Toyota Avalon (likely) and now the replacement for the Acura RL. Wards Auto has confirmed that the new sedan will be getting a name change, dubbed RLX. RLX? What is it with Acura these days sticking X on everything? We thought X was supposed to mean crossover, or at least all-wheel drive. Regardless, RLX it is. As far as full-size sedans go, the current RL is just about as uncompetitive as they come.

As annoying as Yeh can be, I don't think the Genesis' issue is the car itself as much as Hyundai trying to overcome their 90's image. That 5.0 V8 they sell seems to be quite the screamer of an engine. The entire car has a host of shortcomings, but as the RL and the Genesis R-spec cost almost the exact same price...which one would get a buyer's vote? Probably neither. I'd pass them both and go for a GS for the money...but this is not my market honestly.

If Honda had sold the RL closer to what the Genesis offers, with a more upscale interior and ride I guarantee the RL would have been more relevant though. It's hard to knock the Genesis fully from my end...its like Hyundai just grew up too quickly and they are in their awkward stage.

With the RLX replacing the RL, the TL will be the last car in the Acura lineup with a two-letter name. We’ve been told that Acura will offer just three sedans in the future—the new ILX and RLX will be two of those, meaning that either the TL or the TSX is likely to bite the dust. Given its two-letter name, the TL might be the more likely candidate, but Acura is currently in the process of trademarking TLX. We’ll just have to wait and see.

What about this line up in future:

NSX, TSX & RSX - the rumored 3 sports / sporty coupes.
RLX, TLX & ILX - 3 sedans.
MDX, RDX & EDX - 3 suv/cuvs.

The EDX would be based on the rumored euro civic cuv.

The top of each line up gets a V6 plus E-Motors.

Honestly, what do these names mean anyhow?

Did anyone at AHM noticed that RLX is pretty much ROLEX?

"Hey Fred, did you just say you got a new Rolex?"
"No, Joe... I got an Acurex R el ex?..."

Duh! Just call it a Legend(ex)

With RDX turning out to be perfectly executed and receiving so much positive reviews, I now started to see some hopes on the new RL(X).

Let's wait and see.

2013 Acura RLX Concept: Luxurious, Sporty & Green

The clean lines of the sedan show that Acura isn’t taking any chances with its flagship sedan. The stately sedan is sleek and sophisticated for its intended audience. The exterior design has come under some scrutiny, with some saying the concept is too plain, while some say the concept resembles other sedans already on the road. I really cannot see anybody being completely turned-off by the design, yet it’s beautiful enough to attract a larger clientele to Acura. The pendulum grille lives on, but designers have made it a subtle, attractive signature piece. Up-front, Acura installed its latest Jewel-Eye headlights, which are made up of LEDs to help guide the driver into turns and give a more precise glow to the road. Acura also fitted its concept with unfortunate 20-inch rims, which will likely hopefully disappear when it reaches production.

So, ehhh, any new news??

Amazing how it can be buzzing around here for a car...and then dead.

I'm more curious about the future of Acura than ever right now. I'm encouraged for the first time in a long time with the Accord being so good.

Could the lack of any news mean that the hard working people of Brand A are grinding away even harder than ever to actually do something awesome for the first time since the mid nineties???

Let's hope so!

Acura to Live Stream the Debut
On Wednesday, November 28, Acura will reveal the all-new 2014 RLX sedan to a crowd of assembled journalists at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Since the reveal happens during the show’s press days, the general public will have to rely on media coverage to see the new RLX before the show opens its doors to everyone on November 30.

Acura feels your pain, and it wants to do everything it can to drum up interest for its RL replacement. With that focus in mind, Acura will broadcast the RLX reveal live on the web, beginning at 11:00 a.m. (Pacific Time, we’d guess) on November 28.
