There May Never Be A New Acura Integra

For those who never don’t forget, Honda released the Acura luxurious brand name in the United States and Canada back in 1986, just before its rivals Nissan and Toyota released their Infiniti and Lexus models. Acura released with two designs, a complete-size motor vehicle known as the Legend and a compact motor vehicle known as the Integra. The Legend was offered as a sedan or coupe even though the Integra was a hatchback with either three or five doors. Both ended up rebadges of Honda designs offered in Japan.

The NSX, (New Sportscar eXperimental) which was the firm’s 1st alphabetically-named model, joined the lineup for the 1990 model 12 months. By 2000, Acura commenced pivoting to alphabetic names with the TL, CL, RSX, and MDX and by 2006, the RL, TSX, and RDX.

Rivers discussed that Acura really should be cautious in regards to names. “The second-era NSX took a beating in the starting because it was not precisely what we utilized to have. It was not a guide. Now it truly is hybrid. When you start out to introduce new technologies and new items like that, you just have to be genuinely, genuinely thorough.”
