Last time when Acura unveiled an all-new vehicle was back in 2006 when the RDX small crossover joined the lineup. But the company wants to become a "tier 1 luxury brand," so they need a little more help. And it seems they will get it from an all-new vehicle that will be unveiled by 2010, before the NSX will join line-up. With the new model, Acura wants to compete with models from BMW and Mercedes.
"We will look at smaller segments," said Acura’s Product Planning Manager John Watts . "There is potential for a coupe like the CL." Some sources say Acura will offer a four-seat sports coupe, priced in the $50,000 range that may also will come in a retractable hard top convertible version.
