Well, sure thing the Acura car wallpapers might be more popular than the parent company Honda's creations, but when the discussion boils down to the level of popularity, the class and caliber of the vehicles, Acura seems to lose out on two major aspects.
1. Lack of the V8 engine:
Indeed, the biggest downside of the Acura cars has been the lack of V8 engine on these cars, and most of them are still surviving on the Acura's 3.7-liter V6 engine, which produces 275 lbs-ft of torque, and a relatively mediocre throughput of 300 horsepower.
As a result, the folks consider the Acura cars to be inferior to rest of the top-class luxury cars. However, now Acura has finally realized the need for these V8 engines in their cars, and the company is planning to incorporate the V8 engine in the latest Acura CUVs, which are expected to come out sometime by January 2010.
2. Fewer models than the blue-chip labels
Well even the Acura officials have admitted that they compete only in five market segments, with 10 models competing against the BMW, 12 against the Mercedes-Benz, six against Infiniti, and eight against the Lexus. This has been another reason behind the relatively low level of popularity of the Acura cars.
But, the good news is that finally Acura has realized how to fix the issues that have been a great hindrance in their progress, and even in this recession-hit economy they're planning to make the big moves.
If you look at the latest Acura CUV images, you can easily recognize that they're now planning for an all out attack, to conquer the market. The latest Acura Wallpapers that have surfaced up over the internet off-late, have already create enough fuss to increase their level of popularity to a good extent.
