Default Acura To Debut New MDX Concept At New York International Auto Show

TORRANCE, Calif - Mar 27 —

Celebrating its 20th anniversary as a brand, Acura today announced plans to
debut a concept version of the all-new MDX luxury sport-utility vehicle, April
12, at the New York International Auto Show and released an artist's rendering
of the new vehicle. Scheduled to debut later this year, the 2007 Acura MDX will
be the second generation of Acura's luxury SUV to be designed, developed and
manufactured exclusively in North America.

"The 2007 MDX will speak clearly to the advanced image of Acura and promises
to put MDX solidly at the front of the pack with a striking new image, new technology
and performance unmatched in the segment," said Dick Colliver, executive
vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "The designers and engineers
working on this new MDX have a tremendous passion for this product that will
be evident in all aspects of its design and performance."

The company made the announcement on the 20th anniversary of its creation as
the first Japanese luxury nameplate. "The pioneering spirit that gave
birth to Acura two decades ago is driving our continued advancement and innovative
approach to luxury," said Colliver. "Acura is twenty years young
today - stronger, faster, more nimble and more on the cutting edge of
automotive design and technology than at any time in its 20-year history."

The company also celebrated the groundbreaking for a new Acura-exclusive design
facility - the Acura Design Center - scheduled to open in the summer
of 2007. This new facility, located at the company's Torrance, California,
headquarters will play a critical role in the research and design of future
Acura products and will serve to ensure that Acura continues to produce distinctive
designs that communicate the advanced style, performance and character of Acura.

Launched on March 27, 1986, Acura was the world's first Japanese luxury
nameplate and the first to challenge established European and American luxury
marques with its world-class engineering, product quality, value and advanced
powertrain technology. Its 20-year history of innovation includes the first
Japanese exotic sports car, the highly-acclaimed Acura NSX, and numerous technology
firsts including the first automotive applications of in-dash navigation, Bluetooth® phone integration and DVD-Audio surround sound. Acura was also the first Japanese
luxury automaker to develop and manufacturer its vehicles in North America,
beginning with the 1997 Acura 2.2CL coupe. Today, nearly two-thirds of all Acura
vehicles sold in America are designed, developed and manufactured in North America.

In 2005, the Acura Division recorded its third consecutive year of record sales,
topping the two-hundred thousand mark for the first time in the Division's
history. It's class leading products include the Acura TL sedan, America's
best-selling luxury sedan in 2004; the award-winning Acura MDX sport-utility
vehicle; and the highly popular TSX sports sedan, three-time recipient of Car
and Driver magazine's 10Best honors. Its top-of-the-line RL performance
luxury sedan boasts numerous technology innovations including AcuraLink Satellite
Communication System with Real Time Traffic, Super Handling All-Wheel Drive
(SH-AWD) and the first North American application of advanced Collision Mitigation
Braking System (CMBS) technology.

In 2006, Acura will introduce two all-new models - the 2007 Acura MDX
and the completely new RDX premium entry SUV. Equipped with an innovative new
2.3-liter turbocharged engine and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, the RDX combines
sport-utility function with sports sedan handling and performance. The RDX will
launch this summer as a 2007 model.
