Let us see:

Made the steering wheel fatter and smaller. Applied wood on it. Gave the 9-3 bulge for holding it.

The Climate Control Buttons (Top two rows on center console) went from 8 buttons to 10.

Wrapped the naked shifter.

Put a coin holder besides the shifter on the driver's side.

Seems like all new to me tongue.gif

I am reminded of a Camry when I look at the dead-on/offset photos. What was Acura thinking?! They took a perfectly respectable car and beat the grille with an ugly stick.

At least the interior is still nice.

For some reason, that grille makes me think of a bad take on Transformers.

While we're at it, do something with that silly bar at the top of the grill. I can't stand it.

Eh, modest exterior changes (now loonger), new bigger engine from the MDX which uses more fuel, in exchange for 10 more hp.

Take a look at the interior.... is this a game of "Spot the All New"?

2009 RL

Now now... it has a new gear shift and the needles in the gauges are longer. VERY new. AH-HA_wink.gif

I couldn't help but to think it looks like a refreshed 10 year old Euro Mazda 626...

more like "all-terrible"

point is.... very liberal use of the phrase "All New"
almost Toyota like....

"Liberal" and "mistranslation" are two very different words. tongue.gif

And I can spot the shifter / shifter trim plate that are different...

Not exactly. It may be standard on all RL's now, but it was an option on the previous RL.
