Does Honda Make Acura?

The rumors you heard are correct. The Honda Motor Company, Ltd. is the entity who owns Acura. The government of Japan introduced export restrictions on automobiles to the U.S.A. during the 1980’s. These restrictions meant it was more profitable to export higher-priced automobiles. This resulted in Honda creating its own luxury brand, Acura, the very first Japanese luxury car company, in 1986. Acura gained quick success with the Acura Legend, prompting Toyota and Nissan to create their own luxury brands. Today, the hard-working folks who make Acura cars can be found mostly in the Honda manufacturing plant in Marysville, Ohio.

The Acura Lineup

While it’s true that Honda does make Acura vehicles, the Acura brand has its own line of dealerships, like Fisher Acura, where you can find all of the Acura models. Drivers who own Acura vehicles can’t see themselves owning any other brand of car. Here is the current lineup of models you can find for sale on our lot:
