The interior is improved with revised styling for the center console, darker trim pieces, brightly finished door handles, an updated parking brake handle and new garnishes for the steering wheel. In addition, new is contrasting-color stitching for the leather seats, door armrests and center console.

Acura counts the addition of heating/cooling vents mounted at the rear of the center console as an upgrade, but these days even a Dacia has it, so hardly an achievement!

To make the car quieter, they’ve used new acoustic glass front windshield, even thicker side glass, increased use of sound-deadening insulation, improved floor mats and new underfloor covers.
