The compact luxury car market in Canada is quite different than that which Americans witness day by day. See, Honda’s luxury division, Acura, throws a low-priced wrench in to the party normally enjoyed by just BMW, Audi, Lexus, and Volvo. The Acura CSX is simply a Honda Civic with 155 horsepower, a rejigged grille, and luxury accouternments. Plus, the CSX buyer enjoys Acura dealer treatment.
Priced thousands of dollars beneath the BMW 128i, Audi A3, Volvo C30, and Lexus HS250h, the 2010 Acura CSX gives buyers the opportunity to enjoy a luxury badge by paying for a mainstream product. At $27,490, the CSX is on par with a mid-grade Honda Accord 4-cylinder. What does this do for Acura sales in Canada? Well, Acura routinely sells more cars than Lexus in Canada. South of the border, Lexus is generally the best-selling luxury brand. That being said, the difference between Acura Canada’s sales in March and Lexus Canada’s total was more than just CSX sales.
