Because the defining feature on this new Acura car is its hybrid engine, we’ll get straight to the point. The powertrain on this four-door sedan consists of three motors, including an electric motor and a 3.5-liter i-VTEC engine, that combine to create 377 horsepower. The Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive (SH-AWD) system featured on this vehicle has the unique ability to direct engine power from the front to rear and side to side. The addition of the rear electric motors on the hybrid system provides a handling advantage over previous versions of this technology.
