Overview:Acura is the luxury vehicle make of Japanese producer Honda. The brand was started in the United States and Canada in March 1986, selling luxury, performance, and high-performance cars. In the late 1980s, the success of the company's first flagship automobile, the Legend, inspired fellow Japanese makers Toyota and Nissan to start their luxury brands, Lexus and Infiniti.
The Acura RL is a mid-sized / executive luxury vehicle that was produced by the Acura line of Honda for the 1996–2012 model years over two generations. The RL was the flagship of the marque, having replaced the Acura Legend, and was followed in 2013 by the Acura RLX.
