Why Acura Was Named Best Value Luxury SUV Brand by Vincentric*

March 30th, 2017 by

2017 Acura RDX

Acura has been named Best Value Luxury SUV Brand by Vincentric.* The 13th annual Best Value Awards saw the Acura lineup celebrated for its ability to retain value across numerous key factors, underlining the manufacturer’s unparalleled reputation for luxury and performance, and highlighting why these models are such popular choices around Aurora and Plainfield.

The Vincentric Best Value Awards

The team at Vincentric puts together their Best Value Awards each year by conducting extensive cost-of-ownership studies. Eight factors are accounted for, including depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs.

Since such measures are affected by anything from reliability to powertrain efficiency to simple popularity, it’s no mean feat to win an award. For the 13th annual Best Value Awards, Vincentric named Acura their Best Value Luxury SUV Brand,* and also honored the 2017 Acura MDX as Best Value Luxury Intermediate SUV/Crossover.*

The 2017 Acura MDX

The 2017 Acura MDX is an immensely popular three-row SUV that manages to combine family-friendly space, track-like performance, and upper-class luxury, all within on exceptional package.

A 290-hp 3.5L V6 comes as standard for exceptional acceleration and cruising power, so the vehicle is ideal for shooting between Aurora and Plainfield or Wheaton and Westmont, and available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive ensures reliable traction during even the dead of winter. Space for seven makes the vehicle a firm family favorite, as does up to 90 cubic feet of cargo space and an available 16.2-inch rear entertainment system.

The 2017 Acura RDX

The 2017 Acura RDX is a more compact crossover ideal for city-based driving; you’ll also make up to 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway** with 2WD. An elevated rear seat ensures plenty of space for rear passengers, plus enhanced forward visibility, and there’s still room for up to 61.3 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded.

A long list of standard features sees you inundated with amenities such as dual-zone automatic climate control, heated power front seats, and seven-speaker sound system, with available options packages including the Advance Package, Technology Package, and AcuraWatch Plus Package.
