It will be the time when a lineup like Acura can hold its place in the market without losing on the money. Also, Acura will be looking to take over Lexus in terms of sales with its low priced yet exceptional cars. Although, the enthusiasts have already predicted the lineup that might hit the Indian market. So, here are the top 5 upcoming Acura cars in India:

Acura MDX

The MDX in the lineup stands for Multi-Dimensional Luxury. It is among the best-selling three-row crossover that is sold in the world. This car was first introduced in 2001 and is now in its 3rd generation and has gone through a lot of exterior and interior amendments. The current variant offers 3.0-liter i-VTEC engine that gives a power of 321 hp @ 6100 rpm. It is one of the most-loved SUV out there which needs to be launched in India soon.

Acura TLX

Previously, we talked about a midsize SUV, now is the turn for a midsize sedan. It is an entry-level sedan by the company and has been part of the lineup since the year 2014. The new TLX is launched with a facelift in the year 2018 which has added to the oomph factor of this car. This one features a 3.5-liter engine that can get you at a speed of 60 mph in a matter of 1.5 seconds. Acura has confirmed that the new Acura TLX will be getting a V6 turbo engine.

Acura RLX

The Acura RLX is made to serve the executive class. The car is offered in two variants, one is an All-Wheel drive steer while the other one is a hybrid. The Acura RLX being on the top side of the shelf still gets you a combined mileage of 23 mpg. It is luxurious from inside with a 4-way lumbar and also AcuraLink as standard.

Acura NSX

NSX is the only supercar produced by Acura and it has been a part of the Acura lineup since the 1990 and from that, it has seen a wide range of changes to cater to its audience.
