Two popular Acura models receive class-leading Best Cars for the Money Awards from a leading North American automotive journal.

U.S. News & World Report has recently confirmed what many Acura drivers have known all along. In the automotive journal’s 2016 Best Cars for the Money awards, U.S. News & World Report named the 2016 MDX “Best Luxury 3-Row SUV for the Money” and the 2016 TLX as the “Best Upscale Midsize Car for the Money”.   Both vehicles were honored for their exceptional scores in the annual quality and data value analysis and beat out all other competing models in their respective classes.

Acura Delivers Leading Performance, Quality, and Reliability

Acura was pleased to receive the awards and gave credit to their team for consistently developing vehicles that deliver outstanding performance, quality and reliability. The brand is also proud to recognize that the MDX has earned the award for four straight years in a row and the TLX has received the Best Cars for the Money distinction two years in a row since it was first introduced in the market. The awards provide sound confirmation of the lasting value of ownership for both popular models.   Furthermore, recent sales reports also reflect customer approval as the Acura MDX is the overall best-selling Acura model and by far one of the top favorites here at Acura Santa Barbara.

The Making of a Winner

To determine the winners for the Best Cars for the Money awards, U.S. News & World Report combine quality and value stats into one score. Awards are given by vehicle class and the automotive with the highest score within each class earns the title. The rankings are updated annually and published worldwide.
