2018 Acura TLX

So you're set on the luxurious sophistication of an Acura, but you're concerned about having a vehicle that will be able to handle both inclement weather and tough terrain with ease. Fortunately, several vehicles in Acura's lineup are available with all-wheel drive. Here are the options to consider.

2018 TLX

Acura's flagship sedan was named as one of the best luxury midsize cars for the money by U.S. News and World Report*. It's powered by either a 206-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission or a 3.5-liter V6 engine with nine-speed automatic transmission that provides 290 horses. Both are available with Acura Super Handling all-wheel-drive system.

2018 RLX

A large sedan is the quintessential luxury touring car. Acura's version has plenty of power under the hood thanks to the 310-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine and all-new 10-speed automatic transmission. However, all-wheel drive is only available in the RLX Hybrid, which augments that engine with three electric motors to provide 377 horsepower and a fuel economy rating of 28/29 city/highway miles per gallon**.

2018 RDX

This compact crossover SUV comes with a 279-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all trims can be upgraded with all-wheel drive. The RDX was named as the best luxury compact SUV for the money by U.S. News and World Report*.

2018 NSX

Believe it or not, Acura even offers an all-wheel-drive sports car. The NSX is the rare performance vehicle with a hybrid engine, boasting a 3.5-liter V6 with two electric motors and a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The combination provides a blistering 573 horses, making it one of the most powerful cars in its class. Every model is also equipped with the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive.
