    I like everything except the back, looks a little bubbly. Almost infinity-esque. Wish it looked just a little bit more rugged on the back.

    Nice vehicle but I can't justify looking at one after actually looking at the specs. I'd want an A-spec but it's not available with the heads up display, a heated wheel, and I think 1-2 other options. Why would they hamstring themselves like this? They did the same with the TLX. The hud for me is the absolute deal killer, why would the sporty vehicle not include the HUD or even offer it as an option?

    It's really interesting how two schools of thought are goin at it with the infotainment. Of course I mean to touch or not touch. It's gonna be interesting how this pans out. I've personally found messing with the joystick (lexus) and touchpad (acura) more distracting. In the end your hands may not be on the screen but your eyes are. Maybe it's because of smartphones, but I find accomplishing what I want significantly faster with a touchscreen (as long as the unit doesn't lag). And when eyes are on the screen regardless, getting things faster is probably for the best. Unless you want to disable infotainment all together when the vehicle is moving.

    Great review (as always) but please sir can you be sure to always identify whether the vehicle that you are reviewing requires premium fuel? For many, a vehicle requiring premium fuel is unnecessary and is a "deal-killer". There simply is no reason for this. That said, it really would be nice to know the fuel octane requirement. Thank you!

    The Soccer-Mom mobile is back 😆. Even with the upcoming type S option that Acura is making everyone wait years and years until they reveal, this will clock right under 350hp at best? 😕 Underwhelming is an understatement. Even the Hyundai Genesis GV80 for the same price if not cheaper, is clocking 375hp with a twin turbo and way better warranty than these "highly anticipated" newer Acura vehicles. They claim to be about "precision and power" but are being outdone by everyone in the same classes including Hyundai. That's just sad compared to who Acura used to be a little over a decade ago. Looks really cute and pretty aestetically nonetheless. Nice video and I like your review format sir.

    Oh yeah, Raiti, does the Infotainment system include Voice Commands via the Steering wheel ? May help to alleviate the lack of a touchscreen. Still can't over why Acura did that. Touchpads require a lot of acclimating - it turned me off when I was Acura shopping in June 2019 : the newly designed RDX of the old MDX both with Advantage package. When test driving both on test drives, it confused me and felt it would be problematic , so I went with the MDX even though it has Aged dual screen with lacking graphics. Did they improve their BT/ Navi system ? The voice controls on their existing Navi is Awful and inaccurate when Speaking addresses... THX
