“Precision Crafted Performance is the future of this brand but it’s not a destination,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager, Acura Division, during a recent stop in Santa Clarita. “It’s a mindset and a commitment to doing new and challenging things based on our own unique ideas for our customers.”
It was one year ago that Ikeda and his team began a journey to reshape Acura. The goal was simple: To return the Acura brand to its roots by embracing the values of performance, precision, and craftsmanship, while adding a touch of youthful rebellion. Acura’s commitment to providing clients with high-performance vehicles offering a one-of-a-kind driving experience has arrived.
Acura’s best-selling vehicle, the seven-passenger, third-row MDX, is available in both hybrid and traditional models. Beyond its impressive performance-driven technical specifications, Acura’s MDX has been recognized for its safety and desirability. After analyzing a combination of market factors, Edmunds.com determined the 2017 Acura MDX earned the top spot in the luxury midsize SUV segment naming it the “Most Wanted Luxury Midsize SUV” for 2017.
The 2017 Acura MDX also earned Top Safety Pick+, the highest designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), for its fourth consecutive year. Annually the IIHS tests and evaluates two aspects of safety: crashworthiness (how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash), and crash avoidance and mitigation (technology that can prevent a crash or lessen its severity).
Made in Marysville, Ohio, and now on the showroom floor, the 2018 TLX has been restyled as a luxury performance sedan. Its range of thrilling performance and luxury features heighten the driving experience every time you take the wheel. Available in exciting and vibrant colors, such as San Marino Red and Still Night Blue Pearl, it’s turning heads on the road.
Completing the Acura line up are the compact sport sedan ILX, luxury flagship sedan RLX, luxury crossover SUV RDX, and the next-generation supercar NSX.
