Default Acura and Honda!! why is one called the other?

I would see a car like an integra or a rsx and I know these are acura brand cars and see that they have a red or blue honda sign on them. is it becuase of swapped or custom engine parts or what? and I think acura and honda are very similar companies am i right?

Acura is the upscale brand belonging to Honda just like Infiniti is the upscale Nissan and Lexus is the upscale Toyota. It's all about marketing!

acura is a luxurious Honda basically, like Lincoln is to ford or Cadillac is to chevy, but people do this because it supposedly makes it look better.plus in japan i believe some of the acura's us are hondas in japan.there one in the same.
