Honda is one of the most known and loved car manufacturers in the world. It has produced cars that excel in performance and features that the competition is striving to beat. In 1986, it released its dedicated luxury brand, the Acura.
Since 1986, Acura, like Honda, has been a force to be reckoned with. It was first released in the United States and Canada in 1986. By 2014, it has been available for purchase in China, Hong Kong, Mexico, and lately in Russia. It has produced top performing cars, winning racing circuits, and a well established global presence.
Technology and Performance
Among the Acura class, the 2014 RLX Sports Hybrid is the most notable. It has a 3.5 litre, 310 horsepower V-6 engine that ensures power and speed, with up to 31 mpg for fuel efficiency. It also has the Sport Hybrid Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) which provides efficient turns, traction in poor weather, and makes the RLX nimble and responsive.
Acura also looks into the future. Fans eagerly await the release of the NSX Concept car. It is a revival of the discontinued Acura NSX. It is, as the company claims it to be, “built to beguile”. The NSX Concept is design as a sports car and a hybrid-electric. Those who are excited to have one would have to wait since the mass production of the NSX would commence in 2015.
“Once an Acura, Always an Acura”
One of the services of Acura is its automotive financing. This feature helps people who wish to have an Acura in their driveway to balance and manage their finances and security. This is readily available on Acura’s website for easy access and convenience.
Another main feature of Acura’s website is the “Certified Pre-Owned” service. Acura helps buying customers, who cannot afford a brand-new Acura, in locating those who wish to sell their old ones. Acura ensures that these second-hand cars are still up to shape through reconditioning and maintaining standards, such as less than 80,000 mileage and no more than six years old.
Acura has been known to be a top performing brand in the racing circuit. The well-known Integra GS-R has won in 1992 to 1993. The NSX took 1996 to 1998 and 2001 to 2002. The Integra Type R reigned from 1997 to 2002. The TSX lorded over the competition from 2004 to 2013.
Acura has also made its presence on the big screen. Acura is now associated with Marvel Entertainment since 2010. The Acura ZDX was featured in the blockbuster hit Iron Man II. Since then, Acura cars have been driven in every MCU films, such as Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers.
