With the launch of the new TLX, more than 90 percent of Acura vehicles sold in America are now produced in America<sup>1</sup>. </p> <p>Designed, developed and engineered by R&D teams in Ohio and Los Angeles, and manufactured exclusively in Ohio, the all-new 2015 TLX delivers on its advertising tagline of "It's that kind of thrill" combining incredible sports-sedan athleticism with premium luxury-sedan refinement. The new TLX is a technological powerhouse, featuring two advanced new powertrains and two next-generation Acura precision-handling technologies – Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) – all delivered in a sophisticated and dynamic new exterior package.</p> <p>"The start of mass production of the TLX marks a new era for our Acura sedan lineup," said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager of Acura. "The TLX is built in a world-class facility with a world class workforce and we can't wait to get this thrilling sedan into the hands of our customers in just a few short weeks."</p> <p>"We are proud to be the exclusive global manufacturer of the Acura TLX," added Marysville Auto Plant Manager, Rob May. "Working side-by-side with our Acura engineers, our dedicated team of manufacturing associates is committed to exceeding the expectations of every customer and producing the best products in the world."</p> <p>Located northwest of Columbus, Ohio, the Marysville Auto Plant implemented sophisticated new manufacturing technologies to assure superior build quality and luxury refinement. Innovations to the manufacturing process included a new roll hemming technology that allows for more sophisticated vehicle styling, and the application of new sound-deadening materials that contribute to the ultra-quiet cabin of the TLX.</p> <p>The TLX's two powerful and efficient direct-injected engines – a 206-horsepower 2.4-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder, and a 290-horsepower 3.5-liter SOHC V-6 – are both produced locally, at the company's state-of-the-art engine plant in nearby Anna, Ohio.</p> <p><strong>About Acura</strong><br> Acura offers a full line of technologically advanced performance-luxury vehicles through a network of approximately 270 U.S. Acura dealers. The Acura lineup features five distinctive models – the RLX luxury flagship sedan, the TLX performance luxury sedan, the ILX compact luxury sedan, the 5-passenger RDX luxury crossover SUV, and the 7-passenger Acura MDX, America's all-time best-selling three-row luxury SUV. Acura was recently recognized by Edmunds.com for the third consecutive year as leading all luxury brands in retained value after five years of ownership. More than 90 percent of the Acura vehicles sold in America are produced at the company's manufacturing facilities in America, using domestic and globally sourced parts.</p> <p><strong>About Honda in Ohio<br> </strong>Based on the company's longstanding commitment to "build products close to the customer," Honda began auto production at its first U.S. auto plant more than 30 years ago, on November 1, 1982, in Marysville, Ohio. Using domestic and globally sourced parts, Honda now has the capacity to build 680,000 automobiles annually at its two Ohio auto plants.</p> <p>Honda also has established substantial R&D operations in Ohio, along with other operations that support product development, manufacturing and sales of Honda and Acura products in North America.

Through June, sales of MDX are up 68.4 percent (compared to the same period last year) to 30,664 units, bringing cumulative sales of the MDX over its nearly 15-year history to 692,710 units, making it the most popular three-row luxury SUV of all time*. In fact, the MDX has topped all other three-row luxury SUVs in the annual sales rankings in every year since 2002.  Cumulative U.S. sales of MDX are anticipated to surpass 700,000 units before the end of the year.</p> <p> "Luxury car buyers have spoken, and we really want to thank our Acura customers for making the MDX the clear winner among three-row luxury SUVs," said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager of Acura Division. "MDX is the clear benchmark in its class, consistently delivering the best combination of features, function and performance that luxury buyers are after."  </p> <p> Acura pioneered the three-row crossover luxury SUV segment when it launched the first-generation MDX in 2000 as a 2001 model, when the MDX captured both the Motor Trend SUV of the Year and North American Truck of the Year titles. For three generations, the U.S. engineering team responsible for MDX has steadily advanced and refined the original concept of the MDX – a three-row, 7-passenger luxury SUV with superior packaging, fuel efficiency, and ride and handling performance. </p> <p>The third-generation, 2014 Acura MDX, introduced in June 2013, has undergone a complete makeover, starting with the development of an all-new, more rigid and lightweight body and chassis, dropping more than 275 pounds versus the previous model and boasting major gains in body rigidity, aerodynamic efficiency and low running resistance. </p> <p> A safety leader, the third-generation MDX applies Acura's next-generation ACE™ body structure and the first-ever use of Acura's new hot-stamped steel, one-piece door stiffener ring.  As a result of these and other design enhancements, the MDX obtained class-leading EPA fuel-economy ratings of 20/28/23 mpg city/highway/combined while earning both a five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA and a <em>TOP SAFETY PICK+</em> rating from the IIHS, a feat only one other luxury SUV has matched. The MDX also offers greater interior comfort, advanced connectivity via its next-generation AcuraLink™ system, and greatly improved third-row entry and exit via its kid-friendly One-Touch Walk-In feature.</p> <p> The MDX has been designed, developed and manufactured in North America for three generations. The third-generation MDX is manufactured exclusively at the company's Lincoln, Alabama automobile and engine production facility, using domestic and globally sourced parts.</p> <p> <strong>About Acura</strong><br> Acura offers a full line of technologically advanced performance-luxury vehicles through a network of 275 U.S. Acura dealers.

All TLX models can be upgraded to the Technology Package and the V-6 models are available with the line-topping Advance Package.<strong></strong></p> <p>The three model variations feature two Acura exclusive, high-output direct-injected <em>i</em>-VTEC® engines, two advanced transmissions and two unique dynamic handling systems. </p> <ul> <li>The Acura TLX with a 2.4-liter 16-valve, 4-cylinder engine producing 206 horsepower<sup>3</sup> mated to an all-new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (8DCT) with torque converter. The 2.4-liter TLX has an MSRP of $30,995* and $35,025* with the Technology Package. For handling prowess, it features the latest iteration of Acura's Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS).</li> <li>The Acura TLX with a 3.5-liter 24-valve V-6 delivering 290-horsepower<sup>4</sup> is mated to a new 9-speed automatic transmission (9AT) and will be available with both P-AWS and Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). The two-wheel-drive model with P-AWS has a MSRP of $35,220* and $39,250* for the Technology Package. The 3.5-liter TLX with Advance Package has a MSRP of $42,500*.  </li> <li>Sharing the same 3.5-liter dynamic powertrain as the two-wheel-drive model, the all-wheel drive TLX SH-AWD features a new hydraulically controlled version of Acura's acclaimed torque vectoring SH-AWD and will be available with the Technology Package for an MSRP of $41,450* and $44,700* for the Advance Package. </li> </ul> <p><strong>Super Handling Technology</strong><br> The latest iterations of Acura super-handling technologies, P-AWS and SH-AWD, along with Agile Handling Assist (AHA), help make the TLX the most dynamically advanced Acura ever produced; quick and responsive in sporty driving, stable and sure-footed in emergency maneuvers, and calm and quiet during long-distance cruising.  </p> <ul> <li>The new P-AWS system was integrated into the fundamental chassis design from the earliest stages of development, allowing engineers to take full advantage of its independent left and right rear-wheel toe angle control to enhance handling precision, maneuverability and stability.</li> <li>The next-generation SH-AWD system is 25 percent lighter and friction is substantially reduced. The new rear-drive unit is constantly overdriven by 2.7-percent (compared to 1.7 percent on the previous system), with a greater torque-vectoring effect across a broader spectrum of driving situations, further enhancing cornering capability at lower speeds and in tighter-radius corners.</li> </ul> <p>All TLX models also feature the latest development of Acura's Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), which allows drivers to customize their driving experience through four selectable modes; ECON, Normal, Sport and Sport+. Depending on the setting, IDS will adjust power-steering effort, throttle response, transmission shift logic, HVAC system operation, active sound control and the control logic for either the P-AWS or SH-AWD systems. The new Sport+ mode, a first for Acura, unlocks the full performance potential of the TLX with the most aggressive settings in all areas.</p> <p><strong>Fuel Economy</strong><br> The TLX equipped with the 2.4-liter engine has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 24/35/28<sup>5</sup> mpg city/highway/combined.

Its sporting appeal is further highlighted by its more compact sports-sedan proportions (3.8-inches shorter in overall length than the 2014 TL) and Acura's signature Jewel Eye™ LED headlights that are standard on all models. The spacious five-passenger interior of the TLX provides a high degree of refinement, luxury and technological sophistication while supporting an exhilarating driving experience.</p> <p><strong>Interior Features</strong><br> An abundance of luxury features and technologies are available on the TLX, including heated and ventilated front seats, HomeLink®, <em>Bluetooth</em>® HandsFreeLink®, smart entry and pushbutton ignition keyless access system, Acura Navigation System with 3D view, and AcuraLink® Real-Time Traffic™ with Traffic Rerouting.

Honda-powered vehicles have taken at least one class victory at the legendary event in each of the last 12 years, and have captured 44 wins overall.</p> <p>Looking to extend that streak, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Honda Performance Development (HPD) and Honda R&D have joined forces to field six vehicles for Honda associates in this year's race. In addition, Honda is providing power for 2013 overall runner-up Romain Dumas' Norma M20 'RD Limited' in his chase for the overall title.</p> <p>The cooperative effort between Honda companies will see Honda associates racing a diverse lineup of vehicles in the event, ranging from the Fit EV to a first-generation NSX, along with a Honda CBR600RR motorcycle and a Honda TRX450 All-Terrain Vehicle.</p> <p>Ten other competitors will compete on Honda motorcycles in the event's various classes, riding Honda 250, 450, 600 and 1000cc machines.</p> <p>Extending its event support beyond the race track, Honda returns as the Partnering Sponsor for the 2014 event, Honda Power Sports will be the official ATV/UTV of the event and Honda Power Equipment will provide electricity and light to the pits and staging areas, through the use of Honda generators.</p> <p> </p> <p style="text-align:center"># # #</p> Acura Automobiles: Honda Vehicles to Seamlessly Integrate Android Smartphone Features with Android Auto <ul> <li><strong>A Honda demonstration vehicle is on display June 25-26 at Google I/O, Google's annual developer conference in San Francisco, CA</strong></li> <li><strong>Honda vehicles featuring Android Auto will debut in 2015; models and trims will be announced at a later date</strong></li> <li><strong>Android Auto provides a seamless connection between compatible Android-powered smartphones and Honda's advanced, in-car connectivity systems </strong></li> </ul> <p>Building on a series of advancements aimed at improving the in-car technology experience for consumers, Honda will introduce select vehicles compatible with Android Auto™ in 2015.
