Looking at its proportions, its better than anything they've put out in years. But still doesn't look premium, maybe needs better wheels/wheel fitment?

really? those are obviously 19s...looks pretty damn good in that 'chop.

sure it's not up to the new Lexus IS, but for Acura this is huge....to have a new car design that doesn't look like garbage is a step up for them.

It looks great in that image, but in the real life photos we've been seeing, the fitment isn't great and the wheel design is pretty poor too.

Personally, I think the Mazda 6 looks eons better than this car. Add the jewel eye LED lights, and all the other upscale features, and you have a winner.

Mazda 6 may look better. But the TLX is probably a better car.

Also the A4, new C-class and 3 series are all very bland looking, yet no one ever criticises them..

CR just did a Road Test of the Regal and it did pretty well. A little behind the BMW 328i and tied with the MB C250.

The Predicted Reliability has improved to Average, so they now Recommend it.

I honestly do not want that reaction...I don't need/want to be propped up by impressing someone with my car, I just want something sporty for ME. And no these people mentioned above are not enthusiasts (obviously) they are real everyday normal working folks -- but the brand still brings respect without being over-the-top flashy.
If you don't want people to be impressed by your car you better get rid of the A5.

the reviews posted on Acurazine.com majority of them pretty the 2.4 four cylinder model due to its liveliness, high rev and 300lb less weight than the 3.5 V6 version. this may be my next car to replace my IS only if i can get a 2.4 tech for under $35k OTD.

i think they're just on the radar screens of a lot of CL users whether to consider, have had one of those brands, or to bash.

I agree but you see young professionals going after these small, attainable sport cars so it makes sense you would see a volume of views where there will be a higher volume of cars sold

Was at the benz dealer again last week, guy said up to 6 months to get a CLA, if they do get their hands on one its gone in a day.
