Who makes Acura
The Acura brand belongs to the Japanese automaker Honda. Acura was created by Honda in 1986 as a marque of luxury, performance, and high-performance vehicles. Acura became the first luxury car brand in Japan, and Honda was the first of all the Japanese manufacturers to have such a division. It was only later that other Japanese carmakers inspired by Acura’s success decided to launch their own luxury brands (Toyota launched Lexus and Nissan launched Infinity). Most of Acura’s cars are made in the US, with the exception of a couple of models.
