Acura RL, TSX Named to 2005 Car And Driver '10Best Cars' List

Torrance, Calif. 12/10/2004 -- The new Acura RL luxury performance sedan and the TSX sports sedan have been named to Car and Driver magazine's prestigious annual list of "10Best Cars." The RL was named "Best Luxury Sedan" while the TSX, a winner for the second year in a row, captured the "Best Sports Sedan" designation.

The "10Best Cars" list was compiled by a panel of 15 journalists who spent a week evaluating each entry on the basis of value, features and performance. Overall, 44 vehicles in 10 categories were nominated.

"It is always an honor to be named to the 10Best list," said Tom Elliott, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "For the RL to be recognized in the highly competitive luxury sedan category means Acura has hit its mark in terms of performance, world-class safety and leading-edge technology."

This is the first year that the RL has been named to the "10Best Cars" list. It was completely redesigned and reengineered for 2005 with a 300 horsepower engine, Super
Handling All-Wheel Drive, and the first North American application of a real time traffic system.

"...there's no doubt," said Car and Driver of the RL, "the new flagship is ready for the major leagues."
The TSX has earned "10Best" honors in each of the two years it has been on sale.

"Back for its second 10Best term," said the magazine, "the TSX is a symphony of painstakingly perfected details that add up to feline agility enhanced by a bevy of luxury features that come standard."
