Those are some of the biggest markets, but luxury sedan markets are also growing, just not at the same rate, still it's growing with enough demand to justify investing further.

Correct, even Canadians have been catching up, and they've always been one step behind in buying luxury vehicles compared to Americans. Now Canadian sales are ramping up.

Quote:
Canadians have long prided themselves on having different (read: better) taste in vehicles than their American neighbours, with a penchant for small, sensible cars such as the best-selling Honda Civic or Hyundai Elantra.

Suddenly, though, we’ve developed a taste for luxury. Canada is quickly catching up to the United States in luxury sales as a percentage of the new vehicle market and we’re doing it in the showiest way possible — with high-end sport utility vehicles.

Sales of luxury vehicles rose 12 per cent through the end of May and now account for a record 10 per cent of the new vehicle market, according to Scotiabank’s global auto report released this week.

This is rapidly approaching the 12 per cent share that’s typical in the U.S., said Carlos Gomes, senior economist and auto industry specialist at Scotiabank.

“On a per capita basis, Canadian household net worth is rapidly narrowing the gap with the United States, enabling more Canadians to become upscale shoppers,” he wrote.

Although all luxury vehicles are selling well, high-end SUVs are by far the fastest growing segment of the market with sales up more than 80 per cent this year, according to Gomes, who attributed the increase to lower gas prices.

Industry analyst Dennis DesRosiers disputes this, however.

Seems like people are receptive towards the new grille. Can't blame them, the heart shaped diamond grille looks great and I would like to see it in Acura's future lineup of new models.

The shield thing was never popular so I think that everyone is happy to see this new grille design that seems like what the Acura grille always should have been.

Car design these days seem to be moving to larger and more uncovered grilles. I like it!
Maybe make the Acura badge a bit smaller. That thing is huge.

Acura badge on the hood instead will be better. If that's not how it will come from the factory, it's what i'll be looking to do. The NSX is a perfect example of this.

Agree with the badge on the hood, but in the grille is fine as long as it is within reason. Look at Mercedes Benz. The badge in that brand's grille has grown to be quite large recently.

If only the lack of a B pillar wasn't a safety concern. I would like to have a car with these doors.

Well they are called suicide doors for a reason but you can still out a pillar there, just won't look as clean as the Precision concept's.

One can hope but I don't think Acura has ever come out with a car that has suicide doors. I suppose we'll just have to wait.
