Acura With The Most Horsepower

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.

Every Acura is designed to please the driver. Find out more about these three at Pohanka Acura.

When Should You Change Your Battery?

Just about everyone has had to deal with a drained car battery at some point. If they’re lucky, the battery is merely drained because of some careless mistake and can be easily jump-started. If not, the battery is either dead or dying and needs to be replaced.

The good news is that there are several signs that your battery needs to be replaced. If you know to watch for them, you can swap out your battery before you find yourself stranded someplace. Here are three major signs that your battery is near the end of its life.

It’s Older than Three Years

Even though new car batteries can last for years, they start to become less reliable around the three-year mark. Granted, your battery could last longer than that, but you should at least have it tested annually if you’ve had it for at least that long.

Your Battery Has a Low Fluid Level

Most car batteries have a translucent window in their casing that will show you its fluid level. If you notice that the level is lower than the battery’s energy conductor, it’s probably time to buy a replacement.

Your Battery is Leaking

If you have an old battery, you might notice some fluid leaking around the posts where the cable connectors are located. This might not be a catastrophic problem if it’s a small leak, but it’s definitely a sign that you have a problem. This fluid can corrode your posts and make it harder to jump-start your vehicle in an emergency, so consider having your battery replaced when you see this problem.

For more information about your car’s battery or to ask any other questions about your vehicle, contact Pohanka Acura today. Our staff will be ready to answer any of your vehicle maintenance questions.


Acura Safety Information

When it comes to all of the different features that you should pay close attention to when buying a vehicle, safety has to be the most important one of them all. That’s why here at Pohanka Acura we admire the feats over the years in regards to Acura safety. Formed as an analysis backed with our years of experience, here is a look at some of the premier Acura safety features.

Blind Spots Have Been Dominated By Acura Owners

When traveling above 20 MPH, the blind spot information system will activate and keep you informed as to whether it’s safe to change lanes once you turn on your turn signal. This has helped reduce the number of accidents that occur when driving one of Acura’s line of vehicles.

Many vehicles failed to understand the safety hazards of blind spots, and use advanced technology to help turn it into a safer situation. Acura has spent years refining their blind spot safety technology to ensure it didn’t go overlooked within their lineup.

Collision Mitigation Braking System

When it comes to keeping its eyes forward and reducing the risk of accidents from road hazards or other hazardous situations, Acura takes the cake. They have developed and trademarked a technology known as Collision Mitigation Braking System. What this does is that it a high-resolution camera that points forward in combination with a radar. This allows it to identify anything that might be in one’s way, and start engaging the brakes if necessary.

Road Departure Mitigation System

Don’t you hate it when roadside objects put you at the risk of getting hurt or having to take a loss? Acura knows where you’re coming from and the Road Departure Mitigation System proves it. What it does is that it detects roadside objects, and hits the brakes if necessary to provide a collision with anything.

Acura is one of the safest car manufacturers in the industry, and they don’t slack when it comes to rolling out new safety technologies. From the scientists involved in the birth of each model to the guys and gals working to put orders together, there’s no expense spared. This reputation has led them to become one of the industry’s leaders, which isn’t easy to do by any means.
