Acura is the Luxury car series from Honda – the Japanese car maker. Acura series was launched way back in 1986 and are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of launch of the series in 2011. Acura produced models with many advanced safety features, technologies and comfort features during that time. They were the first to introduce air bags for safety as standard in their Legion model cars and also developed proprietary model Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). It has a high resale value among the other car models competing in its range.
Acura was pioneer in introducing state of the art technologies like Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC), and the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) structural design, which resulted in making luxury cars with most advanced performance, safety and comfort features. The luxury car models available from their range are RL, TL, TSX, TSX Sport wagon, MDX, RDX and ZDX. Acura cars are available in US, Canada, China and Mexico. It is yet to launch these series in their home country as the conditions were unfavorable due to recession and the recent strike of earth quake and tsunami.
