Who Makes Acura?

When shopping for a luxury vehicle with all of the features you desire and a reputation for quality, there is a good chance that you have researched the Acura lineup. Are you wondering who makes Acura cars, or you might be asking, “does Honda make Acura?” The answer is yes, Honda makes Acura vehicles.



Who Owns Acura?

Acura was launched in 1986 by its parent company, Honda. When Honda debuted its luxury line in America, the brand was actually known as Channel II. Today the Acura brand has made a name for itself, and with vehicles like the sophisticated and spacious MDX or the stunning NSX supercar, it has become an industry leader like Honda.

Where are Acura Vehicles Made?

Most of the Acura models, including the ILX, TLX, RDX, and MDX, are produced right here in North America. In Ohio, you will find multiple Acura manufacturing locations. The Marysville plant has the largest production capacity of the four locations in the state. You will also find Acura plants in:

  • East Liberty, OH
  • Anna, OH
  • Russells Point, OH

The Marysville plant is responsible for the creation of the Acura ILX and Acura TLX. The East Liberty plant handles the production of the brand’s luxury SUVs, the Acura RDX and Acura MDX. The Anna plant produces engines and drivetrain components. Transmissions and Acura’s four-wheel drive systems are made at the Russells Point location.

In addition to the production of the Acura ILX and Acura TLX, the Marysville plant is also home to the Acura performance manufacturing center. This is where the NSX is built.
