Acura is owned by this trusted brand

Honda is one of the most popular automakers in the world and has a long list of vehicles that customers love and trust. However, Honda makes cars for everyone. Most Hondas are relatively inexpensive, like the Civic or CR-V. The good news is that Honda has a luxury brand that sells cars for those looking for something a little more luxury: Acura.

According to Consumer Reports, Acura is owned by Honda, and the two brands have a long history with each other. Honda created Acura in 1986, and Acura was the first Japanese luxury car brand. Lexus and Infiniti followed Acura not long after.
