White Acura Model

Who owns Acura? Acura is owned by Honda, its parent company. With more and more manufacturers changing hands each year, it can be refreshing to learn that Acura is still owned by the company that created it, all the way back in 1986!

A Brief History of Acura

You’ve seen who makes Acura, and although some things never change, the history of Acura is far from a one-note story. Did you know that the Acura brand was initially known as Channel II, back when it launched to the U.S. market in 1986? Their lineup first expanded to Hong Kong in 1991, and today, Acura vehicles are bought and sold in China, Mexico, Ukraine, and Kuwait! Although the name didn’t stick, the energy that Acura brought to the world of luxury cars was certainly hard to miss.

Their first flagship vehicle, the Legend, was an instant hit. It even inspired other Japanese automakers to throw their own hats into the ring!After the Legend had its turn in the spotlight, the engineers at Acura went all in with the first-generation NSX. The first Acura SUV was the still-popular MDX, which was introduced in the early 2000s. Although a wide variety of other models were introduced over the intervening years, the current Acura lineup did not take shape until around 2008.

From that time on, one could often encounter models like the ILX, TLX, and RDX on the roads near San Diego and Carlsbad. Throughout all of this time, the answer to the question, “Who is Acura owned by?” has never changed. So, when you drive with Acura, you know you’re getting a vehicle backed by more than seven decades of experience at the Honda Motor Company.
