Acura is making still the push of joinnig the Mercedes-Benz – BMW ranks, but would not abandon its value appearance. 'Being a premium luxury brand is not just about product' Dick Colliver, the executive vice president at American Honda, reported Automotive News. 'It’s the way dealers handle customers. You don’t necessarily have to have a $90,000 sedan to get there'.
A 90,000 Dollars sedan model might not be on the immediate future of Acura, the carmaker from Japan is readying a brand new mid-size crossover unit. No CUV details unveiled, but it will slot between RDX, MDX and debut at the end of 2009.
