They have the ILX as the entry level car. TSX as a larger one up to the ILX with a V6 option. A TL as a V6 midsized sedan with SH AWD. RLX as a full sized sedan with V6 - AWD - and Hybrid.

They also have the RDX and MDX being the smaller and larger SUV.

The ZDX being discontinued soon.

I think they should make a AWD TSX V6 in 3.5L and make the TL standard with SH AWD and 3.7L. They need to bring back type S to the ILX and TL. Make the ILX Type S with the 2.4L with a LSD transmission, sportier suspension and aero kit. The TL Type S should be a 3.7L SH AWD Hybrid similar to the RLX but in 6 speed manual with LSD and sporty suspension and aero kit.

I also feel like they are missing a coupe. You remember the days of the RSX, Integra, and CL?

What does everyone think?

Acura is definitely missing a CL coupe. They need to bring it back as they don't have a luxury 2 door. If they do bring it back I wonder which platform it will be based off of....TL/TLX? I know it can't be the RLX platform as it's just way too big and I don't think Acura would want to make a huge 2 door coupe.

Acura CLX...hmm

I think Acura should offer A Spec as a trim on all models. Oh as a extra package that gives you the A Spec badge too. Lip kit and sportier interior. Like they did on the RSX and TL.

I love the Aspec trim idea. I guess its only a matter of time till they think about adding that to their lines.

The CL never really sold that well, im not saying its a bad car but it just didnt sell. They would be rare to see when they were out but even rare to see any today.

As for the RLX I would of like to see it with a V8.

V8 will never happen, especially now when every car maker is trying to be green. Acura is better off turbocharging the RLX engine to make more power than to add a bigger engine.
