What Does the Acura Symbol Mean?

With many Japanese auto brands hitting the North American markets in the 1980s, Honda wanted to introduce a sophisticated line of vehicles to sell alongside their already popular commuter sedans. Honda introduced the Acura brand as its luxury line of cars with the Acura Legend and Acura Integra in 1986. As Honda and Acura vehicles continued to display incredible innovation and dependable engineering, the Acura logo was created in 1990 with unique nods to the mission of both brands. 

At a quick glance, the Acura symbol looks like a stylized “A” for Acura. While that is true, the shape of the Acura car logo is also a caliper, which is a mathematical tool or compass that represents precision and accuracy. As these are the foundation for the manufacturing of every Acura and Honda vehicle, it makes sense that compass is always pointing ahead towards innovation with a distinct focus on quality. And, when you take a closer look at the caliper in the Acura logo, it also resembles an “H” for its parent brand, Honda. 

What is the Acura Logo Design?

The Acura car symbol was uniquely designed to offer the perfect accent to many of the brand’s popular sedans like the Acura RLX, TLX, or ILX, as well as its exceptional SUVs like the Acura RDX or MDX. That’s why the Acura symbol on your vehicle will appear in three monochrome silver tones to offer the distinctive style you’re looking for such as contour, indentation, gradient. Each is meant to offer its own elegant look to your luxury Acura model.
