Acura News and Reviews


Acura was the first Japanese luxury automotive brand to launch in Canada in 1987. The brand was brought to Canada to bring performance, luxury, refined design and advanced technology to the import market. In 1987, Acura only sold two models in Canada - the Legend and Integra. Today, the brand markets several luxury models, including the RLX, TLX, ILX, RDX, MDX and NSX to Canadians.
