When you hear a word like “supercar,” chances are that it has some pretty hefty connotations. Fortunately, Acura’s renowned NSX lives up to all of them!
Here at our DC area Acura dealership, we love the way that the Acura NSX showcases so many of the automaker’s best qualities. From its powertrain to its fluid design, every component of this dream machine is all about precision.
That attention to detail recently came to life when the Acura NSX made its North American racing debut. The NSX recently got the opportunity to compete in the 2016 Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb—the 100th anniversary of America’s second-oldest race.
Reaching the 14,115-foot pinnacle of Pikes Peak is no small task, and the NSX performed with flying colors. In fact, the supercar outperformed its competitors by over 11 seconds and cinched 1st place in the Time Attack 2 class!
This breathtaking display of performance certainly attests to Acura’s passion for quality vehicles, and that passion isn’t limited to supercars like the NSX. In fact, Acura’s entire lineup is built to deliver on the spirited performance that you crave behind the wheel!
With a range of body styles, the 2017 Acura lineup at our DC area dealership is versatile enough to satisfy just about any driver under the sun! Whatever your needs are, you can count on a thrilling experience behind the wheel of an Acura.
The 2017 ILX, which falls into the compact sport sedan segment, is perfect for city drivers who need to take on narrow streets and tight parking. Don’t let its convenient size fool you, though; it still checks in at 201 horsepower! The 2017 TLX and RLX provide even more space and, along with it, even more power.
Family drivers don’t need to worry, either, thanks to the 2017 RDX and MDX SUVs. Checking in at 279 and 290 horsepower, respectively, these models deliver the spirit you crave along with the space that you need.
You don’t need to be a race car driver to appreciate Acura’s penchant for performance, and now is the perfect time to drop by for a test drive! To learn more, be sure to contact Pohanka Acura online or to call our team directly at (703) 968-6600 today.

Depending on your schedule, the shift in daylight during winter may feel like either a blessing or a curse. Everyone’s schedule is a bit different, after all, but if you live near the DC metro area, one thing is for certain: it almost always feels like it’s rush hour!
At our Dale City area Lexus dealership, we know that rush hour can be tough—especially if the sun is in your eyes. Since many of us now find ourselves driving to or from work as the sun is either rising or setting, it’s important to take the time to make sure we’re doing all that we can to stay safe on the roads.
Driving when there’s a glare really boils down to two things: seeing, and being seen. Seeing can be tough, as the weak light of dawn or dusk is dark enough to hinder your vision, but not dark enough for your headlights to be fully effective.
The 2017 Lexus models at our Lexus showroom serving Dale City feature innovative lighting that can lend a hand. We suggest checking that all of the lights—including the daytime running lights—on your vehicle are in proper working order for optimum visibility.
We also recommend keeping a pair of sunglasses in your vehicle for use exclusively while driving. When you leave the house while it’s dark out, it can be easy to forget that you’ll need your shades halfway through your drive. We also suggest taking the time to ensure your windshield is clean and streak-free; the moment when streaks catch the rising sun or oncoming headlights and limit your visibility isn’t the best time to remember this!
To learn more about driving safety, including innovative features from Lexus that can help you to stay aware of your surroundings in any lighting, don’t hesitate to come and see us for a test drive! We invite you to contact Pohanka Lexus online or to give our team a call at (703) 968-9100 today.
