Upgrades Eminent in the Latest Styles of the 2019 Acura RDX

2018-04-30T09:51:15+00:00April 30th, 2018|Acura, New Vehicles, SUV|

The All New 2019 Acura RDX appealing to the eye with changes abundant

Changing from the longer front end, it’s easy to see, though masked until formal introduction, the 2019 model RDX’s nose is quite smaller than its predecessors. With a hint of MDX in the front end, the sheik front grille completes its stylish design. Acura offers headlight revisions that include sleek LED strips to add the new RDX appeal. The front bumper quickly follows with its enhanced characteristics. The larger corner vents and long LED fog lights surround a wide mouth air dam that works by forcing cold air into the transmission and radiator. The massive front wheel wells offer a masculine look while the delicate and rounded exterior below the belt lines offer an robust feel, new to the 2019 Acura RDX. The back wheels wells blend well as they sit flush with the rear body. The backside design is clever with its high-mounted slanted rear lights that hint of feisty eyebrows. It also includes two tail pipes that blend in at each lower corner with a spare tire in between to complete the unique character in the 2019 RDX model. The rough terrains of the Santa Barbara countryside have nothing on this rugged Acura model. Take a moment to visit Acura Santa Barbara and ask about the latest styles to come in the 2019 Acura RDX.

Interior modifications accompany the modern upgrades in the all-new 2019 Acura RDX

The 2019 Acura RDX will encompass many upgrades in the interior. It begins with the modification from the dual display setup to a single, larger display, which will incorporate the HVAC controls. This upgrade cleans up the dash with fewer buttons and a more lustrous design. Other considerations in the upgraded interior of the 2019 Acura RDX are the redesigned shifter, new design in the steering wheel and center counsel, and enhancements to the instrument cluster. Though leather may not cover the whole interior, the door trim and top dash along with complete leather upholstery is expected, which will enhance the look of its predecessors.

First Supercar Built in United States, the 2017 Acura NSX offers Power, Performance and Style

2017-11-27T10:56:59+00:00August 8th, 2017|Acura, Hybrid Vehicles, New Vehicles|

Determined to bring supercar to the streets, Acura creates the opportunity with its 2017 Acura NSX electric vehicle.

Developed by a small group of engineers in Ohio, 2017 Acura NSX is the first supercar built in the United States at Acura’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio. This original delivers unique power and style built for daily commutes and the curves of Santa Barbara highways. The 2017 Acura NSX brings excitement to the streets as this four-wheel-drive hybrid-electric car accelerates from zero to 60 mph in less than three seconds. The efficient 2017 NSX engine offers rapid torque vectoring, continuous thrust assist, a 3.5-liter dry-sump system, with a solid 21 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. Its roar is low, but rugged, coming from the sharp four exhaust pipe design underneath its exterior. Stop in at Acura Santa Barbara today and take a test drive of the 2017 Acura NSX.

Acura engineer boasts about the excellence in the NSX design

The 2017 Acura NSX has a rare style in its 75-degree V-angle and automatic rev punch that offers exceptional racing appeal. Michelle Christensen, Acura designer, boasts about the excellence poured into the NSX design, “…We worked closely with the guys in the wind tunnel in Ohio to make sure that every surface was tuned for aero, but also that it was in line with the styling concept: ‘interwoven dynamic.’” Check out this American built original at Acura Santa Barbara, where customer satisfaction is our main objective.

Latest technology in the drive that delivers a boost in the 2017 Acura NSX

While driving, this clever NSX model has sensors that monitor data through its computers and work together with its internal hardware. From the front motors to the rear tires, this full-bodied ride is masculine with upshifts that are smooth upon acceleration. Under the hood of the exotic 2017 NSX is a trio of electric motors—two on the front axle and one between the twin-turbo V-6 and the nine-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The front motors influence this NSX model through gear changes along with the rear motor that drives the V-6 engine to build to its peak psi level to 15.2. This smooth operation inside the 2017 NSX is one of many reasons Acura Santa Barbara is proud to be a factory authorized Acura dealer.

Bold and Outstanding Precision/Performance in Acura TLX Model

2017-06-27T16:12:36+00:00June 27th, 2017|Acura, New Vehicles|

Acura further establishes themselves as a contender in the luxury vehicle arena by bringing cutting edge innovations to the table, evidenced by the new TLX.

Acura makes history with the first Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) system. The P-AWS system, designed to independently adjust the toe angle of the rear wheels, allows for fully independent rear steering. Rear wheels can pivot automatically to as much as 1.8 degrees in the same direction as the front wheels to offer a smooth, stable, and steady lane change. This state-of-the-art design also allows the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels (reverse phase steering) to assist in vehicle rotation for easier turning capabilities. When braking at high speeds, the system aids in changing the rear wheel angle in order to increase braking ability and safety. At lower speeds, the reverse phase steering can aid in reducing its turning circle and maneuvering in tight areas. Utilizing P-AWS system enhances maneuverability and control, creating a powerhouse in all wheel design.

Acura TLX Body Structure is an ACE in the Industry

The body structure of the Acura TLX is among the next generation of automotive design as it encompasses Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE). This design offers enhanced protection for the Acura driver and passengers alike. It has multiple braces at the front corners to distribute energy so that the impact decreases when a collision is unavoidable. Occupant safety is the utmost concern. The outer braces will transfer the impact of a collision to the center and then send the force from the impact around the cabin in a more even manner. These safety tools aid in taking the force of the crash away from passenger(s). As a premium dealer to a wide region of drivers, Acura Santa Barbara takes comfort in the brand’s constant efforts toward safer vehicles.

Awards Abound for the Acura TLX

A finalist in the USA News 2017 Best Luxury Mid-Size Cars for the Money awards, Acura TLX stands out among its opponents as a top dog. Acura Santa Barbara continues to supply automotive excellence to its valued customers. Come in and test-drive an Acura TLX today.

TLX: Sleek Look, Powerful Engine

The Acura TLX encompasses four-wheel steering and torque vectoring, which enhances precision and agility. The powertrain is a 206 horsepower with 2.4-liter engine and has an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic or 290 horsepower, 3.5 liter, V-6 engine with a nine-speed automatic. The LED lights around the corners of this remarkable and technological advanced masterpiece makes driving the Acura TLX a great roadside partner in the automotive arena. Acura Santa Barbara’s friendly and knowledgeable sales representatives are eager to answer all of your automotive needs.

Kelley Blue Book Awards Acura as Best Cost-To-Own Brand

2017-05-19T12:33:28+00:00May 19th, 2017|Acura, Award|

Kelley Blue Book recognizes Acura for offering long-term reliability, low-cost ownership, and pricing below the competition.

One of the most important things to consider when purchasing/leasing a new vehicle is ‘will it stand the test of time?’ Buying a new car is making a commitment that has the potential to affect your daily life for many years. Therefore, it’s more important than most people realize to research your next purchase while considering reliability-over-time as a significant factor.

Though driving an Acura may not be as enticing as driving one of their more expensive luxury competitors, like Audi or BMW, Acura has established a reputation for quality and reliability for a reasonable price. The brand might not offer too much in flash, but when it comes to getting your money’s worth over the time of ownership, Acura leads the industry. In fact, Kelley Blue Book (KBB) has recently awarded Acura their KBB 5-year cost-to-own gold medal.

Kelley Blue Book determines the 5-year cost-to-own award by examining the cost of a vehicle’s projected financing, insurance and state fees, fuel, and scheduled maintenance and repairs. In addition, Kelley Blue Book includes the vehicle’s projected depreciation in value over time. Acura has proven to have the most value in this category for two consecutive years.

Acura proves that luxury and value don’t have to be exclusive concepts in a vehicle. Not only does Acura have an initially lower price than their luxury brand competitors like BMW and Audi, their vehicles hold their value incredibly well over time.

“If you’re looking for the prestige and tradition that distinguish European luxury brands, you’re going to have to pony up. But if you’re instead more interested in the practical advantages of a premium-priced vehicle—a quieter cabin, more comfortable seats, higher-quality interior appointments and such—Acura delivers for less.”

-Kelley Blue Book > 2017 5-year Cost to Own Awards: Best Brands

Awards like this make us proud to be an authorized Acura dealer at Acura Santa Barbara. It comforts us to know that we supply our customers with top of the line luxury vehicles. In fact, our team of expert technicians is prepared to make your cost-to-own value even better. By scheduling routine maintenance checks our team will make sure your vehicle is always running at peak performance, and work to identify and fix any budding issues before they become costly repairs. Come visit us at Acura Santa Barbara to check out some of the brand’s award-winning luxury models like ILX sedan or the RDX crossover.

Enjoy Luxury at an Affordable Price with the 2017 Acura RDX

2017-03-10T11:21:50+00:00March 10th, 2017|Acura, New Vehicles, Safety, Technology|

The Acura RDX is for drivers who value comfort, safety, and technology, but still want a luxurious driving experience.

The Acura RDX is sort of the little brother option to the Acura MDX. It is a compact luxury crossover SUV that is simple, but elegant from the inside out. The Tampa Bay Times claimed that, “Acura may have found its aesthetic sweet spot” with the RDX. The 2016 model of the RDX one-ups its predecessors in every aspect by sporting a simple, sexy style while bringing more content, more safety features, a modest power increase, and 1-mpg rise in EPA highway fuel economy to an impressive 28-mpg with all-wheel drive. As an authorized Acura dealer, Acura Santa Barbara is excited to offer this level of luxury at an affordable price. So come visit Acura Santa Barbara to learn more about our different Acura RDX models and other luxury Acura models.

The Acura RDX is Safe, Smooth, and Stylish

One thing that Acura drivers can always count on is that the designers of their vehicle had safety in mind as a top priority. The Acura RDX is another example of this. Some safety features available for the luxury crossover are:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist – This feature applies brakes to each individual tire as needed to reduce the risk of over or understeering or loss of traction in wet or unstable conditions.
  • Blind Spot Information System – This feature can detect vehicle’s in the next lane’s alert zone while going over 20 mph. If the driver signals that he/she is changing to that lane, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors with Multi-View Rear Camera – This feature alerts the driver when they are nearing an object while parking with a series of beeps that becomes more rapid as the driver gets closer. The multi-view rear camera assists the driver in determining the width and depth of parking spots, giving a clear view as to whether there are any obstacles.

In addition to safety, the Acura RDX delivers a smooth driving experience on just about any driving surface, eliminating the annoyance of unkempt pavement. The 3.5-liter V-6 engine pairs well with the six-speed automatic transmission that feels nicely attuned to the engine’s powerband. The result is a consistent and uninterrupted luxurious ride. Visit our knowledgeable Acura-trained sales experts at Acura Santa Barbara to learn more about the Acura RDX and its individuality as an affordable luxury crossover SUV.
