Interesting stuff, especially from Acura. Nice interior too. The Type S is the only thing I'd actually take a look at, but expectations are still that it would be boring. It's a shame, because Honda/Acura do a lot of things really well, but those things never really come together to make a compelling car. In the video, they make a point of emphasizing that this is so much MORE than any previous Acura. HUGE horsepower bump, retuned AWD, amazing seats, 10 sp transmission, etc... But in reality, I would expect it to have 320-340hp, with another 15hp in an overboost mode; 65% front bias on the AWD, no tactile feedback to feel more "luxurious"... I guess what I'm getting at is that if this car is to change the perception of Acura, they have a lot of "Meh..." to overcome.
