As much as I'd love to see Honda resurrect the old DOHC C-series, it was a very expensive motor, and the J is much cheaper with close to the same numbers. And as we all know, numbers are all that 95% of the car buying community cares about.

Update: March 30, 2019

Acura has confirmed on its 2020 TLX’s official page that new model will offer V6 Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC)engine both for AWS and AWD. What’s new on this is Acura give its buyers new features for both powertrains, like V-6 Precision All-Wheel-Steer (P-AWS) and V-6 Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive (SH-AWD).

Both 3.5L V-6 i-VTEC P-AWS and SH-AWD powertrains will produce 290-hp with 9-speed automatic transmission and sequential sportshift paddle shifters. The different is exists with its gas mileage. See the list below.

^^^
That Information is for the 2020 TLX

Same with Edmunds page on 2020 Acura TLX
https://www.edmunds.com/acura/tlx/2020/

None of that information applies to the Upcoming 2020 Acura TLX Type S, that information has not been released. That engine info mpg etc is for all 2020 Acura TLX models FWD, PAWS, Super AWD and A Spec. No information was given for the 2020 Type S Model.

They need to release more info because im about to buy a Civic Si for the simple fact i can't really find anything worth spending 2x as much on. Figure I'll drive the Si for a couple years until something worth spending my money comes out. Not into used cars, and the 40-50k new car market has nothing that gets me excited (im a sedan guy ouch!). I found several Type Rs near me with no markup, but I'm just not seeing the value of spending 15k more...now if it had SH AWD i would be bought one yesterday. But im not spending 40k on a fwd car.

Civic platform is nice, neighbor has one and have driven the Si. Turn in is bonkers. Scared the poop out of the salesman, this is with all season tires. With dedicated summer tires the Si with the diff would be whacky in the turns. Type R is whole different ball game, would put some R compound tires and hit the track in that thing.

Yeah, I think it's cause the 10th gen Civic is lower, you certainly feel like you're sitting low, it's also light. The lightness also makes my car feel very cheap though, that and all the buzzes and rattles - which is ok cause I'm always playing music or Podcasts. But it's not like my BMW where I'd turn off the stereo and enjoy the engine/exhaust sounds. You want the stereo on in the Civic.

I will give you the light weight and low center of gravity bit. Having owned stock JDM cars and stock E46 and E92, they both had their fair share of clunks, quirkinesses, rattles and usage of cheap plastics on the inside.

Thanks for the update. Too bad no MT variant.

If I want a fast cool looking AWD sedan in AT, I would get the S3. Anyway it will NOT be a Honda.

Default Possible Images of Next Gen MDX and TLX Found on RDX SystemUI.apk

https://acurazine.com/forums/third-g...ui-apk-980889/


Photos of the Next-Gen Acura MDX and TLX Have Leaked in the Weirdest Way

https://www.caranddriver.com/news/am...source=twitter



Acura says the renderings are conceptual, but they could be very close to the production models.

New model leaks happen in a variety of ways, but we arenít quite sure weíve seen one happen like this. A technically savvy member at AcuraZine with the forum name rdx.god posted up some very interesting images that claim to show the forthcoming MDX redesign, which could be coming for the 2020 model year. Also in the post are images of what might be the next Acura TLX sedan, a vehicle we donít expect until the 2021 model year, and some interesting renderings of interior items and possible options for these vehicles.

Where did these photos come from? Thatís the interesting part, as this person apparently bought a new Acura RDX and did some digging in the crossoverís software suite. Mind you, these arenít things youíll just happen upon while pushing buttons. According to the thread, this person found some technical-sounding files and loaded them into an Android developer toolkit. We donít speak computer-ese very well, but the bottom line is that it took some extra steps to find these photos. But are they legit?

Comparing the MDX photos to our own spy shots (above), the proportions do appear to match up. As for the TLX (below), we donít have much to compare with in terms of spy shots, but the leaked photo bears a striking resemblance to the TLX PMC Edition that Acura revealed earlier this year at the New York Auto Show. The front fascia is particularly similar, though the headlights look narrower and thereís a bit more pizazz to the body lines. Honestly, we hope these are the real deal because we like what we see.

However, to further answer that question, we shot a quick message to Acura. It seems strange that images of future products would wind up buried in software for vehicles currently on sale, but a spokesperson for the automaker offered a clear, logical, and surprisingly upbeat explanation.

ďAs we announced, the True Touchpad Interface that debuted on the RDX will expand across the Acura line-up. These conceptual renderings were embedded deep in the RDXís user interface software for placement only. While the renderings are conceptual and based on our Precision Concept design language, we are pleased with the anticipation and positive reaction, and are excited to share details of future Acura products at the appropriate time."

Officially, then, these images are merely concepts. Whether they translate partially or directly to production vehicles remains to be seen.

.APK extension is for android packaging, basically itís an archive. The OP in the acurazine explains that we was trying to change the background on his RDX when he stumbled across these in a specific folder.. Anyway, no need to go into the technical bit on how he found the images..... good for him and for us!

To me some of those images remind me of the screens that pop up when you select specific drive modes, i.e. Econ, Comfort, Normal, Sport.

The ambient lighting is nice but gimmicky and excessively done. But I get Acura wants to appear more premium in the eyes of potential new buyers.

Not a big fan of the Electronic gauges, again a likely move to go up market and justify increase in MSRP.

The MDX design reminds me of the CX9, with the flatter nose. Likely all due to pedestrian safety rules which have come out of the EU.

The TLX looks nice, the V6 seems to have what looks to be a built in exhaust manifold on the head. We know that is for for increased turbo efficiency (lag) and reduced emissions (quicker warmup of the catalyst). Just hope there is enough market left for this car.

Acura PR might be playing these pics off as concepts, but itís pretty obvious these are pretty much the actual designs.

Hereís more info ScoobyDude from Motor Authority..

Images potentially revealing the designs of two future Acura models has showed up in the strangest of all places.

The images potentially show a redesigned MDX crossover SUV and a new flagship sedan inspired by 2016's Precision concept.

Several images of both vehicles were posted to the Acurazine Forum on Thursday by user rdx.god, who claimed to have found them while digging through files embedded within the infotainment software of an RDX.

Acura has since confirmed to Car and Driver that the images show ďconceptual renderingsĒ based on the Precision concept's design language and are ďfor placement only.Ē

The MDX was last redesigned for 2014 so the next-generation model should arrive for 2020 or 2021. The lack of prototype sightings suggest a later arrival.

The sedan is the more interesting design. While the source suggested the design is for a next-generation TLX, a closer inspection suggests we're looking at a larger, more substantial car. We've already spotted a prototype for the next TLX and it will be a heavily updated version of the current car. It will also offer a sporty Type S variant.

Compared to the TLX prototypes, this mystery sedan has its side mirrors mounted to the doors and not to the base of the A-pillars. The mystery sedan's C-pillar also sits above the rear wheel arch whereas on the TLX prototypes the C-pillar is well in front of the rear wheel arch.

The mystery sedan could be a new range-topper to replace the RLX, with rumors of the Legend nameplate's revival currently circulating. We should have more details soon as Acura is tipped to be readying a concept of a new flagship sedan for next month's Monterey Car Week. Stay tuned.
