The introduction of these new Acura models closely follows a milestone in Acura's history, when its sales in the United States passed the one million mark. "No other import luxury nameplate has achieved this sales milestone in such a short time," stated Rich Thomas, executive vice president - general manager of Acura.
"The 1,000,000 sales milestone accomplishment would not have been possible without the dedication of our dealers to customer satisfaction and the commitment to excellence of those who design, engineer and manufacture Acura automobiles," said Thomas. "With the introduction of the 1995 Acura Legend and Integra models, Acura looks forward to another very successful sales year," he added.
Introduction of the 1995 Integra Special Edition caps a significant year for Integra as well. Since the all-new third-generation Acura Integra was introduced, it has become the bestselling automobile in America in its category.
New for 1995, the Integra Special Edition features a leather-trimmed interior, special appearance group and a performance handling package priced significantly less than if purchased separately.
The 1995 Acura Integra Special Edition, which is offered in both Sports Coupe and Sports Sedan models, features a 1.8-liter, 142-hp, DOHC engine with a 5-speed manual transmission or optional 4-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control System. The Special Edition has a fully independent, double-wishbone suspension, combined with front and rear stabilizer bars, power steering, 15-inch alloy wheels with Michelin XGT- V4 all season high-performance tires, 4-wheel power disc brakes and an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) for precise handling.
Other standard features of the Integra Special Edition are driver's and passenger's side air bags (SRS), air conditioning, four-speaker AM/FM stereo cassette, power moonroof, power windows and cruise control.
The Special Edition exterior features a Special Edition emblem, protective body-colored side mouldings and an aerodynamic body-colored rear spoiler on the Sports Coupe model. The Sports Sedan model features a wood-patterned center console.
Both the Integra Sports Coupe and Sports Sedan are available in RS, LS and GS-R models. For 1995, the Integra OS-R is available with leather-trimmed interior and the Integra LS Sedan has added a power moonroof as standard equipment.
The 1995 Acura Legend Series of luxury automobiles include both Sedan and Coupe models. The Legend Sedan models are the fully equipped L, the more elaborately appointed LS, and the top-of-the-line OS. The 1995 Acura Legend Coupe features two models: the fully equipped L and the more elaborately appointed LS.
The top-of-the-line Legend Sedan OS gets the same high-performance 230-horsepower Type II engine as the Legend Coupe and is available with either a 6-speed manual or 4- speed automatic transmission. The Sedan OS and Coupe LS also feature a Traction Control System (TCS), sport suspension, 16" wheels with all season high-performance tires, dual piston front brake calipers and a body-colored front grille.
The Legend is powered by an aluminum-alloy, 3.2-liter, 24-valve, V-6 engine. The engine/transmission package of the Legend is longitudinally mounted to achieve the ideal 60/40 weight balance for a front-wheel-drive luxury performance automobile. A racing inspired double-wishbone suspension, front and rear, delivers precise, responsive handling combined with excellent ride quality.
The elegantly styled Acura Legend Sedan and Coupe were designed for aerodynamic efficiency, incorporating clean lines to penetrate the wind with a minimum of turbulence, and details such as nearly flush glass and minimal gaps between body sections to reduce wind noise and increase fuel efficiency.
Acura, the number-one-selling luxury import nameplate, has achieved an excellent reputation for quality and reliability. All Acura automobiles are protected by a 4- year/50,000-mile limited warranty and a 5-year unlimited-mileage corrosion warranty. A nationwide network of nearly 300 dealers offers a full line of Acura models.
