Although Acura is the luxury vehicle marque of Honda, it still sits on the less expensive side when it comes to car insurance.
The Acura brand was launched in the United States in 1986 and it quickly inspired other Japanese automakers to create their own luxury lines, such as Toyota’s Lexus and Nissan’s Infiniti. Acura also would later design an affordable alternative to European sports cars.
In 2011, Acura and Marvel Entertainment announced a promotional campaign where Acura became the official brand of the fictional organization S.H.I.E.L.D. Since then, Acura vehicles have appeared in several Marvel superhero films.
The Hollywood connection is good publicity for the automaker, as are the five-star safety ratings Acura’s domestic line has earned during the last 20 years.
Since 2011, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has awarded more than nine Acura models with four or more stars, earning them an overall rating of five stars. Ratings are based on four categories: overall, frontal crash, side crash and rollover.
Acura models have been known to have superior handling and braking capabilities, even when compared to its cousin Honda. Acura also has been at the forefront of technology -- implementing backup cameras, keyless starts and blind spot information systems.
Unlike their European counterparts, Acura vehicles are known to be less expensive to fix after a crash. This, along with its durability, can make Acura a cheaper vehicle to insure than others.
