Established in 1986 as a division of luxury cars from the Japanese automaker Honda, the Acura division highlights high-performance vehicles. It is actually the first luxury brand from a Japanese automotive company. With the success of the Acura Legend, a mid-size sedan, other Japanese competitors such as Toyota and Nissan began the launch of their own luxury brands.
