New Legend? Acura to Unveil New Sedan Based on Precision Concept

A new Acura model is coming this summer. Early reports suggest it will be based on the 2016 Precision Concept.


The Precision Concept was one of the prettiest cars to be unveiled at the 2016 North American International Show. Now it will finally be used for a new Acura production model which will be unveiled at this summer’s Pebble Beach.

The new car will be a four-door flagship model according to Car&Driver. The car will be closely related to the Precision Concept which if we are to be honest is one of the few exciting things to happen at Acura in a while.

The new 2019 Acura RDX is a step in the right direction, but the brand still needs a standout sedan. The RLX failed as a flagship model capable of bringing in consumers and attracting attention to what the Japanese automaker can do.

The new Acura sedan will apparently pay tribute to the brand’s past which begs the question: Will we see a new Acura Legend? The idea was brought up before and it wouldn’t make sense based on Acura’s current naming structure, but it would certainly make an impression in the industry.

Acura needs to do something big if it hopes to ever compete with its German rivals and Lexus in the major luxury segments. The Acura TLX hasn’t managed to do that since Acura decided to combine the TSX and TL, and the RLX, as mentioned previously, never made a dent in its competitor’s sales numbers.

The Acura NSX was supposed to be a big hit but the new car is so far from the old one, none of what made the name great remains.

Regardless of what Acura unveils this summer, it will likely have some kind of electrified engine and will use the Precision Concept’s stunning exterior lines as a design starting point.

Acura has to get this right and the closer it sticks to the concept, the better off it will be.
