Acura Introduces 1994 Models
Highlighting 1994 is the addition of the new top-of-the-line Acura Legend Sedan GS and the introduction of the all-new Integra Sports Coupe and Sports Sedan. With the early introduction of the all-new 1994 Integra Sports Coupe in mid-July, 1993, the Integra has become the best-selling import model in America in the sports specialty category.
Since 1987, Acura has been the number one-selling luxury performance import nameplate in the United States. "Since its first sale in 1986, Acura has sold more than 900,000 automobiles and during 1994 will sell its one millionth automobile," states Rich Thomas, executive vice president of Acura. "We are confident that new refinements to the 1994 products and the introduction of the Legend Sedan GS model will create an even greater appeal for Acura in the upscale luxury car market," he says.
Acura offers a full range of models from the all-new Integra Sports Sedan and Sports Coupe to the revolutionary mid-engine exotic NSX sports car. With the introduction of the 1994 models, all Acura automobiles now include as standard equipment driver's and front passenger's air bag Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
The two-seat, all-aluminum NSX sports car offers the performance and styling of a midengine exotic, but with the Acura reputation for reliability and quality. The 1994 NSX sports car features newly designed, larger-diameter wheels and wider, lower aspect ratio tires, giving the 1994 NSX an even more aggressive stance on the road than ever before. The NSX also features refined transmission gears for quieter operation.
The 1994 NSX comes in a new exterior color, Brooklands Green, in addition to Grand Prix White, Formula Red, and Berlina Black. A choice of either a black or a newly introduced tan leather interior is available.
A new top-of-the-line Legend Sedan GS model is a new addition to the 1994 Legend series of luxury automobiles.
The new Legend Sedan GS gets the same high-performance 230-horsepower Type II engine as the Legend Coupe and is available with either a 6-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. The Sedan GS also features a Traction Control System (TCS), sport suspension, 16" wheels with all season high-performance tires, dual piston front brake calipers and a body-colored grille.
For 1994, both the Legend Sedan and Legend Coupe have been subtly restyled with redesigned grilles, front bumpers and front air intakes. Also in 1994,both Legend Coupe models feature a new high-mount brakelight integrated into the rear trunk lid, while the LS contains a new body-colored chin spoiler, side sill and rear bumper skirt.
All 1994 Legend models feature a new power tilt and telescopic steering system with tilt up and memory functions that operate in conjunction with the 8-way memory-equipped power driver's seat. Additional sound insulation in all 1994 Legends ensures quiet operation.
In 1994, Vigor LS and GS models feature interiors designed with new fine-finished wood trim on dash and door panels, which enhance the appeal of this personal sports sedan automobile. The Vigor LS has been upgraded to include a front passenger's air bag for 1994. The Vigor GS now features a new AM/FM stereo/cassette with 8 speakers and an in-dash compact disc player as standard equipment.
As the Acura entry-level model, the all-new, third-generation 1994 Integra Sports Coupe and Sports Sedan, has been completely redesigned to deliver even greater levels of sporty style, performance, comfort, advanced technology and unsurpassed customer value.
Both the Integra Sports Coupe and Sports Sedan are available in RS, LS and GS-R models, and all feature as standard equipment a driver's and front passenger's air bag Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). To offer sports-oriented drivers the practicality of a 4-door configuration, the performance-oriented GS-R model is available for the first time in a Sports Sedan body style.
The Acura marque has achieved a reputation for quality and reliability, as evidenced by its ranking for three consecutive years as Best Overall Carline in the J.D. Power and Associates® Vehicle Performance StudySM, a survey that measures driver satisfaction after three years of ownership.
