Alright now heres where this car makes sense. it tops out the highest one is 34,000 exactly. with rebates its less then that and the lease deals on ALL of them like the 2.0 5 speed tech, 2.4 stick (one id get) are actually less then that of a civic SI, civic sedan, by a LOT. im seeing these pop up all over town because why buy a civic when this costs less per month on lease.. the buy it off in 3 years. thats my take on it. would i rather have an accord? yes most definitely but for someone looking to jump into the luxury premium sedan game this offers a higher plus over something like say, an A3 or base CVT A4.

Drivetrain:111-hp, 1.5-liter, 8-valve, SOHC i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with Integrated Motor Assist IMA System; Continuously variable transmission; EPA Est. MPG27: 39 (city) / 38 (hwy) / 38 (combined)

One thing that concerned me a bit was the real chrome door handles, i know after time chrome can look really bad depending on what happens to it. I wish Acura had them in black, if it was it would be worry-free.

The chrome that Acura uses is not nearly as bad as the chrome that GM uses for their vehicles. The ones on GMs start to peel and have corrosion build up and the top layer tarnishes. The chrome on Hondas/Acura just tend to get scratched up over the years.

That's true, GM has really bad quality chrome. But now chrome is starting to get played out, sometimes it looks just right on new cars. I think they should start having optional trim finishes, such as Chrome or matt black. Nothing is better than having trims perfected from the dealership, sucks having to do it yourself.
