Sponsor Saturday: Performance Acura  

AOCFEST is excited to announce Performance Acura as our sponsor for the week! Acura is an innovative luxury brand that strives for excellence as they study performance of their vehicles through manufacturing and consumer response. They have introduced cutting-edge technologies such as Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control, and Advanced Compatibility Engineering. The development of these technologies has created a great line-up of eye-popping performance with unmatched comfort and safety features executing every detail. In addition, being a brand that stays in their own lane Acura makes sure that their brand enhances into the community and environment.


Ever since they started in 1986 Acura has made safety their number one top priority. This explains why the luxury brand had received 5-star crash safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in front crash and side impact tests for all of it’s models in 2009. In addition, while receiving their 5-star crash safety ratings, they also became the first company to have every one of it’s models receive a Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. However, these honorable recognitions did not appear out of anywhere – it all started with the brand’s Legend Coupe model that came with a front driver’s airbag 11 years before it was mandatory. Also, Acura had established an assistant Anti-lock Brake System that came on the 1988 Legend and was standard on other models. This type of innovation for the future became the present technology that is available in every Acura model today.


The perfect examples of this innovative technology would be Acura’s 2015 RDX and MDX models. They both received 5-stars on all of the current New Car Assessment Program and 5-stars overall vehicle scores. They both come with the Land Keeping Assist System feature and Adaptive Cruise Control feature making sure safety is apart of your luxury. However, their latest model the 2016 Acura ILX has been redefined, redesigned, reengineered and reborn making the sports sedan more athletic to the driver. This 51 horsepower model comes with a new 8-speed dual clutch transmission with torque converter. In addition, it gives the standard and more luxurious quality technologies such as Heated Front Seats, Bluetooth Hands FreeLink, Smart Entry/ Push-Button start keyless access system, One-touch turn signals, GPS-linked automatic climate control and LED accent lighting.


Several Acura models will be on display at AOCFEST this year. So if you happen to see one while enjoying yourself, go take a look at why Acura is no match for the competition.
