About This Quiz

Usually, when we do these car quizzes, we pit auto brands against each other, and they're normally from different countries. Today, not only are we putting two of Japan's biggest brands against each other, they both also happen to be luxury brands. 

One of them, Acura, is a luxury marque under the Honda brand. With only 32 years in the auto world, it's Japan's first luxury brand. Its success helped propel other Japanese automakers to follow suit. They included Toyota (their competitor in this quiz) and Nissan. The brand's logo is a stylized "A," which some interpret as a slightly skewed "H" for Honda. They're most known for the Integra, the Legend, and their NSX models.  

Lexus, on the other hand, is younger, at 29 years old, and the luxury division under the Toyota brand. Despite being younger than Acura, it is Japan's biggest luxury brand seller. It's currently being sold in more than 70 countries across the world and sold more than 330,000 of its sporty, luxurious, sought after models in the United States alone, in 2016. 

If you think you've got what it takes to differentiate these closely related luxury brands, try your hand at our quiz! Have fun and good luck!
