Who Makes Acura?

The Acura lineup is known for delivering ultimate performance paired with stunning packages, but do you know who makes Acura? All Acura cars are actually made by Honda, though the two brands have several differences.

Who Owns Acura?

Acura was launched in 1986 by its parent company Honda. When Honda first introduced the luxury vehicle line, it was originally known as Channel II. Decades later, the Acura brand has become well known across the world, gaining equal popularity as Honda thanks to innovative technology and driving thrills that don’t disappoint.

Where are Acura Vehicles Made?

Ohio is home to four Acura manufacturing plants, with the Marysville location boasting the largest production capacity in the state. Acura vehicles are also made at plants in East Liberty, Anna, and Russells Point, Ohio.

Each location specializes in a different model or component. Marysville makes the Acura ILX and Acura TLX, and is also the Acura performance manufacturing center where the Acura NSX supercar is produced. East Liberty produces the Acura RDX and Acura MDX SUVs, while the Anna plant focuses on engines and drivetrain components. Finally, the Russel Point location creates transmissions and other components, including the four-wheel drive systems.
