It’s just another reason you should buy an Acura. According to the annual awards from Edmunds.com, Acura vehicles retain their value better than any other luxury car brand in the market today. It’s not just a one-time thing, either. This is the fifth year in a row that Acura has grabbed that title.
Edmunds.com’s Best Retained Value award is a big deal. The automotive authority compares the projected five-year value of every car brand. It’s taken as a percentage of the true market value, or retail price. It accounts for an average of 15,000 miles driven per year.
Compared with other luxury brands including Lexus, Porsche, and BMW, Acura comes out on top with the highest projected retained value after a five-year period. No other luxury car maker can expect that their vehicles will be worth nearly 48 percent of the retail price after 60 months.
What does the Edmunds.com award mean for you?
It means that you can count on your Acura to still be worth good money throughout its life. All vehicles depreciate from new, but the test of which vehicles are most desirable and reliable comes in the future. When people are willing to invest their money in a pre-owned Acura, that’s a testament to the quality, engineering, and support network that backs every Acura vehicle.
It also means that Acura vehicles are ahead of the curve for technology. With dependable features including AcuraWatch, ELS Premium Sound Systems, AcuraLink Next Gen, and precision engineering and performance, Acura vehicles are among the best-equipped vehicles at incredibly competitive pricing.
If you’re in the market for a new or pre-owned Acura, there has never been a better time to buy. And once you’ve made the decision to purchase an Acura car or SUV, whether the RDX or MDX, ILX or RLX, you can trust that your car will still be of great value many years down the road.
