Actually the J series SOHC engine is still fairly competitive, but there are rumors of an all new DOHC v6.

2018 facelift. Interior continues to carry-over basically unchanged:

Why is the front emblem so large? Not sure why acura feels they need such a large front emblem, their cars looked better with a small emblem. Not liking that front lower fascia, seems odd and not with the rest of the styling.

Wow, that's actually a big improvement considering what it started with. Like they somehow injected emotion into it. I particularly love the rear now. Those tail lights are seriously cool. Front is also much much better. Overall the detailing is worlds better and looks like it belongs on a luxury car now rather than a Camry.

The logo is no larger than what Mercedes is doing with theirs. Seems to fit just fine to me.

No surprises inside. Guess we'll have to wait til the next gen to see that mess go away.

they're still so lost in their styling. headlights make the front of the car look like its yawning and that chrome on the bumper is very derivative of several other brands. rear is bland and interior is so far from where it needs to be. A new Volvo S60 makes this irrelevant.

The big emblem isn't the issue. It's fine on the Precision Concept which is gorgeous. The problem is the crass grafting on of the show car elements on vehicles that were poorly styled in the first place. Acura does not have one vehicle that is attractive (leave the NSX out of this). The TLX comes closest to being presentable, but it is so dull. The RLX so betrays that it's a slightly lengthened Accord when seen from the rear.

You can't handle a bigger logo
