2008 Acura Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Acura's 2008 lineup saw few major changes; instead, further refinement to already well-designed models. The MDX, Acura's popular mid-size luxury SUV, keeps the brand new 3.7 L V-6 engine it got in 2007. It sits at 300 horsepower, which means it can get to 60 mph in just a little more than seven seconds. New this year is real-time traffic updates on the navigation system and an additional interior trim option. The RDX, Acura's premium crossover, enjoys a four-cylinder, 2.3 L engine with a turbo, along with 61 cubic feet of storage space (the back seats fold down). The cockpit is enhanced with Bluetooth, auxiliary jacks, 10-speaker surround-sound audio, satellite radio, and navigation. Again, little changed with the RL, and it maintains 20 combined mpg despite its big 290 hp, 3.5 L V-6 engine. The TL, Acura's flagship sedan, will get a makeover in 2009, so, for now, it's content with its 258 hp, 3.2 L V-6 engine (the Type-S gets a 286 hp, 3.5 L boost).
