"
As we enter a new decade, we will continue to focus on our core values and maintain the kind of sales discipline that has made us a retail sales leader in the industry," said Henio Arcangeli Jr., senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division. "The arrival of our new CR-V Hybrid next month will also bring new opportunities to further strengthen our light-truck lineup and extend our two-year streak of record electrified vehicle sales."

Sales Highlights

Acura cars found sales strength again with a 6% gain in January as the brand's gateway luxury sedan continued its segment-leading ways. The TLX sedan also rose in the first month of 2020 as buyers continue to recognize its balanced goodness.

  • ILX scored its best January sales since 2016, gaining a robust 16.1%, while TLX sales rose 6%.
  • Acura light trucks entered 2020 on a bit of a hangover after an incredible finish to 2019, but RDX and MDX still posted sales of almost 6,500 units.

Model Notes

MDX just surpassed cumulative sales of 1-million units in the U.S., continuing its run as America's best-selling 3-row luxury SUV of all-time.

Acura's gateway model, the ILX, was the retail #1 and fastest-growing model in segment with the highest percent of sales from under-35 buyers among all compact luxury sedans
