Torrance, Calif. 11/10/2004 -- The Super Handling All-Wheel Drive(TM) (SH-AWD(TM)) system featured on the all-new 2005 Acura RL performance luxury sedan has been named Best of What's New in the Automotive Technology category of Popular Science Magazine's 2004 Best of What's New list.

Best of What's New awards are presented to 100 new products and technologies in 12 categories: Auto Technology, Aviation & Space, Cars, Computing, Engineering, Gadgets, General Innovation, Home Entertainment, Home Tech, Personal Health, Photography and Recreation. Winners are featured in the December issue of Popular Science.

The Acura SH-AWD system is the first and only all-wheel-drive platform to distribute the optimum amount of torque not only between the front and rear wheels but also between the left and right rear wheels. The result is uncanny cornering performance that provides extremely neutral steering and outstanding vehicle stability.

"Being named to the Best of What's new list further confirms that the Acura Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive system is a significant advancement in automotive technology," said Dick Colliver, Acura vice president, sales. "Acura takes its reputation for technologically advanced vehicles seriously and we appreciate the recognition in such a respected publication."

"Best of What's New is the ultimate Popular Science accolade, representing a year's worth of work evaluating thousands of products," said Editor Mark Jannot. "These awards honor innovations that not only impact the way we live today, but change the way we think about the future."

The 2005 Acura RL is Acura's top-of-the-line sedan. In addition to SH-AWD, it features a 300-horsepower VTEC engine, track-tuned suspension, and a host of advanced technology including the first North American application of a real time traffic information system.
