Sport Hybrid technology isn’t slowing down Acura performance. As you can see from these three stars, it is possible to go faster and not to waste fuel. These three rate have the highest horsepower in the Acura lineup.
2018 Acura NSX
If you want to feel at one with the road, the 2018 Acura NSX Sport Hybrid generates 573 horsepower and 476 lb.-ft. of torque. The top speed is a track-friendly 191 miles per hour. How does it do it? For starters, there’s a twin-turbo V6. A hybrid motor and battery are added to increase horsepower. The Direct Drive Electric Motor is attached to the transmission to ensure an instant response. The automatic is a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission. The first speed launches the NSX. The ninth lets it cruise. In between there’s a close-ratio seven-speed gearbox. Harnessing the wheels, a twin motor unit creates a truly active all-wheel drive.
2018 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid
The RLX Sport Hybrid may look like a sedan, but it wants to be a racecar. The combination of V6 engine and hybrid technology kicks out 377 horsepower. Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive is standard. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission manages the power outlay with precision. Here’s a real shocker: This mover-and-shaker earns 28 mpg city and 29 mpg highway, proving it really is a hybrid. This one just happens to be extremely fast. Like the NSX, this hybrid has a three-motor system.
2018 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid
The 2018 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid is a big SUV with a serious competitive streak. It has a 3-liter V6 engine which it combines with three electric motors. The result is a 321 horsepower output. This three-row ride earns its hybrid credentials by earning 26 mpg city/27 mpg highway. The rear motors work independently on curves to maintain safe travel without reducing speed. Torque vectoring moves power to the wheels that need it most. An active damper system regulates the SUV’s reaction to pavement imperfections.
