Acura expects its improved, next-generation all-wheel-drive technologies in two upcoming sedans to help make up lost ground from a delayed product launch as the brand chases a full-year U.
S. sales increase, Mike Accavitti, the luxury brand's general manager, said.
The brand is seeking to recover from a delayed launch of the Acura TLX.
Through July, Acura sales slipped 2 percent to 90,431 vehicles. That knocked it off pace to beat the 165,436 vehicles it sold in 2013, which marked a 6 percent gain over 2012, amid an overall market up 8 percent.
