Honda had a strong U.S. sales performance in September from the freshened Honda Pilot and re-engineered Acura RDX crossovers, but lower sales across the rest of the line resulted in a 7 percent sales dip from the year-earlier period.
A freshened Acura NSX debuted during Monterey Car Week festivities with a modified chassis and software tuning along with new tires. It's available for order and deliveries are expected to begin in October.
Acura's rededication to its performance heritage came full circle this year with the debut of the redesigned 2019 RDX crossover. The spry RDX, which hit dealerships in June, signals the styling and engineering direction that upcoming Acura models will follow.
