The table headings are shifted. Really messed me up for a second when I thought, "The Type S gets the 4-cyl turbo motor???" o_O

:giggle:

Some nice info here. Thanks for posting.

Thanks great table. Interesting - belt drive power sterring yet its still electrical? They couldn't have the electrical motor variable? Am I missing something?

It's probably difficult/expensive to build a servo motor with resolution fine enough, yet sufficient torque, for the application.

I haven’t seen anything yet for the TLX. if it’s anything like the 2.0 turbo that’s in the RDX, it’s not great. 25-26MPG with the SH-AWD. I think it’s tuned more for performance than fuel efficiency.

Hm. I thought Acura axed the full sized RLX and made the 2021 TLX bigger to make it a midsize sedan. the passenger and cargo volume barely increase. However, I'd happily trade space for a proper double wishbone.
