TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A record December, driven by strong sales of the TL performance luxury sedan and the MDX luxury SUV, gave Acura a new all-time yearly sales record for 2003.

"We made some key additions to our lineup this year like the new 2004 TSX sports sedan and the TL performance luxury sedan," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, sales. "Strong demand for those two models, as well as record sales of the MDX, pushed Acura sales to a new all-time high."
