2024 Product Lineup: Integra, MDX, RDX, TLX, ZDX

Overall Brand Impression:

Acura introduced Canadians to the initial vision of Japanese luxury showcasing sporty elegance. Despite their NSX hybrid supercar being retired after the 2022 model year, the Acura brand contains an exciting vibe with their 2024 product line.

What’s New for 2024: 

The most notable addition to the Acura lineup for 2024 is the revival of the ZDX nameplate. Instead of the previous iteration of the ZDX where customers saw it as a radical yet polarizing crossover shape, this time has Acura breaking new grounds offering the brand’s first fully electric powertrain.

The Acura TLX sport sedan receives an extensive refresh for 2024 with a revised Type S Concept inspired front grille, larger 19-inch standard wheels, enlarged 12.3-inch center display screen and improved sound deadening for occupants.

Since June of this year, Canadians have been delighted by the presence of the exciting, performance-oriented 320 horsepower 2024 Acura Integra Type S.

Performance suspension with Adaptive Damper System, lightweight 19-inch wheels matched with Michelin Pilot Sport summer tires, four-piston Brembo brakes and perforated front seats are among features included with the Acura Integra Type S.
