The Acura MDX and RDX continue to win accolades for their outstanding combination of performance and value on a luxury scale. Both vehicles have been awarded as the 2014 Best Cars for the Money by U.S. News & World Report. The five-passenger RDX won the “Best Luxury Compact SUV For The Money” category” and the seven-passenger MDX won the Best Luxury 3-Row Midsize SUV For The Money” award.

To determine the “Best Cars for the Money” a combination of quality and value data is reduced to a composite score. Across the 21 award categories, the highest scoring vehicle is named the “Best Car for the Money” in the category. Quality is measured by the overall score that a vehicle achieved in the U.S. News car rankings at the time that the awards are published. The rankings are updated monthly at U.S. News and compare cars based on their safety, reliability, and a consensus of expert industry opinions. To measure value the combined score comes from using the vehicle’s five-year total cost of ownership and the average price paid for the vehicle at the time the award is published.

“The RDX has proven to be an increasingly popular model with our customers” shares Duane Sanders, General Manager of Santa Barbara Auto Group. “With the complete redesign in 2013, the RDX now offers an even greater value to our customers on fuel efficiency and total cost of ownership”

Built for the size of your life the redesigned Acura RDX has the design, features, and functionality that keep customers coming back to this model year after year. Featuring a new 273-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine. With a 6-speed automatic transmission and an available all-wheel drive system, the RDX proved many good reasons to be loyal. Powerfully efficient with the best-in-class EPA fuel economy rating, the RDX utilizes iVetch technology to deliver the most power possible, while still keeping the environment in mind. Highly functional elegance is what customers expect from the interior and the RDX delivers with standard leather seating and 10-way adjustable lumbar support.
