Worst Selling Cars of 2019

2019 Buick Regal TourX

It’s tough selling sedans today. American consumers have turned from the traditional sedan with surprising quickness and resolution. And while it’s possible we’ve seen a leveling off in the sales growth of crossovers, it’s almost certain that once-dominant sedan will remain a niche segment for years to come, if not permanently.

While the annals of automotive history will remember Acura as the first Japanese luxury nameplate to make its mark in the U.S., those with a penchant for racing will remember it for something more…exciting.

Used Luxury Car Deals

As crossover SUVs gain in popularity, used sedans have become something of a bargain. Shoppers can find some particularly compelling deals on luxury sedans, a number of which have dropped significantly in resale value.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with sedans. The most popular automotive body type of all time, the humble sedan has for years served the American buying public with a sort of quiet reserve and dignity. Residing in the space between the utilitarian station wagon and the flashy, indulgent coupe, the sedan has, for decades, outsold all other passenger-vehicle types.

2005 Acura NSX

You have to respect Honda Motor Company’s minimalistic nature. Honda and Acura vehicles are packaged in such a manner that they are not offered with stand-alone options. The Honda model lineup is among the smallest of any major automaker, and the company even keeps available trim levels to a tidy minimum.

Honda Performance Manufacturing Center

Acura’s 573-hp, mid-engine, all-wheel-drive hybrid NSX is no ordinary car, and the place where it is built—Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, Ohio—is no ordinary assembly plant.

2019 Acura Lineup

2019 Acura Lineup

Acura’s product lineup has been undergoing an exterior-design transformation over the last few years, and the styling makeover has reached full fruition with the 2019 model year. As promised, the brand’s “Diamond Pentagon” grill treatment, a look that debuted on the Acura Precision concept car of 2016, has now proliferated across every Acura model. We recently attended the 2019 Acura full-line media preview, where we got some seat time in the refreshed ILX compact and a couple of hot laps in the NSX supercar, as well as an overview of the rest of the Acura lineup. Check out what’s new:

Maybe you’ve heard of the “runner’s high,” an elusive phenomenon experienced by distance runners and other serious exercise buffs. At some point during a good, long run, an endurance-focused athlete can experience a period of euphoria that, to hear some folks tell it, makes the whole physical-exertion thing more than worth the effort.
