Founded in Minato, Tokyo in 1986, Acura is the luxury brand for the Honda Automotive Group. The success of Acura’s first vehicle, the Legend, inspired Toyota and Nissan to launch their own luxury brands.
The logo is originated from a caliper, a precise design tool. It represents the detail that goes into every Acura produced. The name Acura is from the latin root “acu” which means to sharpen.
Average Acura models luxury sedans in different trims such as the ILX, TLX, and the RLX. The models of the crossover SUV’s are the RDX and MDX. The TLX and the MDX are the most popular models sold from the Acura line.
Acura offers a performance line with their flagship performance model the NSX. A next generation supercar that starts in the mid $100,000's. A new, limited edition, hand assembled sports car is to be released with the 2020 model year and priced around $50,000.
Fun fact… an Acura prototype was featured in the first Avengers movie. Created exclusively for the movie and driven by Tony Stark who traded in his Audi R8 for this custom new ride. Acura has had several of their cars featured in Marvel movies and the series Agents of Shield.
Most of the models in the Acura line are smaller vehicles. For car shipping, this means the cost will be very reasonable. Smaller cars are much easier to ship than larger vehicles as the shipper has more flexibility with loading the cars on the car hauler. The value of the car can affect the cost as well. It is much cheaper to transport a car on an open trailer. However, you will want to use an enclosed trailer to ship your NSX as it’s a very costly vehicle.
