We are not here to do what has already been done. More than a rallying cry, it is a way of thinking.
One that affects how we see the world of automotive luxury today, and how we shape it tomorrow.
It has led us to develop transformative technologies like the innovative VTEC® engine and a navigation
system with both AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic and Weather.™ And to look for inspiration beyond
the limited confines of current automotive design. It is what pushes us to use premier race circuits
as testing grounds for our ideas, as evidenced by our move this year to the top tier of competition
in the American Le Mans Series.® It is all for the purpose of keeping you in touch, in control and
inspired. Letting you experience things that have never been done before.

of the rigid chassis, responding to spirited driving with minimal body
roll. Finally, speed-sensitive steering lets you feel through your fingertips

The studio within. it can be heightened or it can be deadened. When Acura set out to design the
sound system for the TSX, we took keen interest in how music interacts with
its environment. In short, we wanted to produce an experience that rivaled
a professional sound studio. Our secret weapon? GRAMMY ® Award-winning
engineer and producer, Elliot Scheiner.
The Acura/ELS Surround® System (with available Technology package) was
specifically developed for the TSX by Elliot Scheiner and the Acura team of
engineers. Considering every element, from the placement of the speakers
to the acoustic qualities of the interior space, they built a system that takes
advantage of the TSX’s unique sound field. The result is music that more
closely captures the depth and nuance of the original studio performance.
