Acura Aftermarket Grilles

For anyone who has dealt with home renovation, Honda's interest in creating the upscale line of Acura cars and SUVs made perfect sense. As any realtor worth her salt will tell you, there's a limit to the amount you can invest in a house before surpassing what any prospective buyer will pay. The same holds true in the car market, meaning regardless of how much leather or technology gets packed in, shoppers will only shell out so much for a model wearing a Honda badge (or Toyota, Nissan, Chevrolet, etc.).

Positioned as the smaller and less expensive of 1986's original duo, the Acura Integra was available in hatchback and sedan configurations. Though its 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine generated only 113 horsepower and a measly 99 lb.-ft. of torque, this front-wheel-drive Acura drew its share of praise, and thanks to a bounty of aftermarket parts, continues to be a popular choice for enthusiasts on a budget. Over the years, more powerful engines and new trim levels were introduced, but it was the 1992 Acura Integra GS-R that impressed with its raw capability. In 2002 the Integra was replaced by the Acura RSX hatchback, available in base and Type-S guises until its demise in 2006. Other coupes and hatchback offerings included the Acura CL from 1997 through 2003 and the nameplate's bona fide super car, the Acura NSX, which drew broad acclaim during its run between 1991 and 2005. Heck, even Jack Nicholson reportedly owned one.

The second model crafted for the 1986 debut was the front-wheel-drive, V6-powered Acura Legend, sold in two- and four-door varieties. Unlike the playful Acura Integra, this relatively large vehicle better demonstrated the company's focus on luxury. Acura sold the Legend until 1995; another sedan, the Vigor, enjoyed a short run between 1992 and 1994. The resulting vacuum was filled by the first-generation Acura RL and Acura TL models in 1996. These two vehicles represented the brand's sedan offerings until the Acura TSX was added in 2004.

In light of the burgeoning consumer interest in SUVs, Acura struck a deal and placed slightly altered and rebadged Isuzu Troopers on its dealers' lots in 1996. The partnership ran through 1999, and after a one-year hiatus, SUV sales resumed with the all-new 2001 Acura MDX. That original version met the demands of Acura buyers for six years until it was replaced in 2007 by the second-generation MDX, complete with SH-AWD and 300 horsepower. As it turns out, that was a busy year for Acura Grilles, as the RDX debuted to fill the need for a smaller alternative to the MDX.
