Overview:Acura is the luxury vehicle marque of Japanese automaker Honda. The brand was launched in March 1986, marketing luxury, performance, and high-performance vehicles. Since its inception, Acura has been a trailblazer in the automotive industry, being the first Japanese automotive luxury brand. As a consequence in the late 1980s, the success of the company's first flagship vehicle, the Legend, inspired fellow Japanese automakers Toyota and Nissan to launch their own luxury brands, Lexus and Infiniti.
The Acura TSX is a compact executive car that was manufactured by Acura from 2003 to 2014. Introduced in April 2003 as a 2004 model, it was sold only in the United States and Canada, but since the 2009 model year it has also been available in Mexico. It is also sold in Guam and Puerto Rico. It was sold in North America under the Acura luxury marque, where it filled the gap as Acura's 4-door, entry-level sedan when the Integra sedan was discontinued in 2001 (1996 in Canada since the EL was the Integra sedan's replacement there). The TSX would also eventually replace the Acura RSX in the US (which in turn succeeded the Acura Integra coupe).
