While former sports car maker Malcom Bricklin is plotting to bring Chinese-built cars to the American market, Honda appears to be planning the exact opposite. Honda recently announced that it would be introducing its Acura line of luxury and near-luxury cars to the Chinese market in 2006. That line includes the Acura TL, which is built in Marysville, Ohio. Set to arrive in China in the summer of 2006 the TL will follow on the heels of the Acura's RL flagship sedan as the company attempts to establish a foothold in the burgeoning Chinese automotive market. The brand will compete against domestically built brands including Buick and Toyota, as well Nissan which recently announced that it would be bringing it's Infiniti brand to the party. With a new market at stake and customer tastes still developing in China the scene is set for a showdown of epic proportions. It's anyone's guess which brand or brands will come out on top, but it's guaranteed to be a good show.
