Acura

Acura these days looks very little like the Acura of old, a onetime maker of premium, sporty cars backed by Honda's reputation for engineering excellence and reliability. The Honda connection remains, but Acura's lineup no longer bursts with overtly fun-to-drive vehicles. Instead, the majority of its offerings are little more than fancier Hondas. That's not objectively bad, but the brand could use a spiritual realignment away from stuff like the somewhat bland three-row MDX and aging, compact ILX toward the likes of its NSX supercar and the sportier versions of its TLX sedan, which seem to uphold the values on which Acura was founded.
