Next Acura RL To Get NSX’s Hybrid Technology

Acura RL at Next Acura RL To Get NSXs Hybrid Technology

If you take the new NSX out of the picture, the rest of Acura’s range is full of ugly, dreary cars. They really need a major makeover, and that’s apparently what they’re are about to get. The next Acura RL for example will get a version of the hybrid system designed for the 2015 NSX sports car. At least that’s what boss Takanobu Ito says.

The Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) in the NSX consists of a powerful next-generation VTEC V-6 engine with direct-injection works in concert with a dual clutch transmission with built-in electric motor to create supercar acceleration while offering outstanding efficiency.

It’s highly unlikely for the RL to get exactly the same setup. A four-cylinder unit is a more probable proposition. It would make the new Acura both powerful and fuel efficient.

The new powertrain is great, but we also hope Acura comes up with a whole new design language as well. All their cars look like they belong to the previous century!
