8/1/2001 4:12:17 PM

Acura marks a ninth consecutive month of record-setting sales, reporting an all-time July record of 13,537. That number breaks the previous record of 13,428 set in July 1991 and is a 16.4 percent increase over last year, the company announced today.

Acura's year-to-date sales rose to 98,447 in July, up 24.1 percent over the same period last year. Sales were boosted by the introduction of the all-new RSX sports coupe, the replacement for the Acura Integra, which sold 2,308 units in its first month. In addition, strong demand continued for the best-selling 3.2 TL luxury performance sedan, resulting in a new July sales record of 5,183 units. Year-to-date TL sales rose to 41,258 up 4.8 percent over last year.

"The RSX is off to a fast start," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president of sales. "When you combine that with strong sales of our core models and the new MDX luxury SUV, we're on track to have a record-breaking year."
