THE 2001 MODEL YEAR WILL be a quiet one for Acura. The only new model is the 3.2 CL, which made its debut back in the spring of 2000- As for the other cars in the Acura lineup, no changes major or minor-are planned.

That said, the 2002 model year will be a busy one for Honda's upscale division. An all-new Integra, equipped with a new variation of the VTEC engine, is expected to how in the spring of 2001. Also gearing up for a big introduction next year is the new RL, which we hear is going to be a V-8-powered rear-wheel-drive sedan. The NSX is also rumored to be getting a major face lift.
