For the fifth consecutive year, Acura has earned the Edmunds Best Retained Value award for luxury brands with the highest projected residual value of 47.6 percent after five years of ownership. The results are based on average Edmunds True MarketValue pricing.
“Topping the Edmunds rankings for projected retained value for eligible luxury brands for the fifth straight year is an important validation of our total focus on delivering precision crafted performance in every facet of what it means to own an Acura vehicle,” said Jon Ikeda, the vice president and general manager of the Acura division.
The rankings prove that Acura vehicles continue to offer luxury car buyers the highest levels of luxury, performance, safety, quality and reliability. Acura was also named the top luxury brand by Kelley Blue Book for having the lowest “Five Year Cost to Own” thanks to high resale value, great fuel efficiency and low cost of ownership.
Acura is also celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2016, and is about to launch the next-generation NSX supercar and redesigned MDX luxury SUV. The brand has also been appealing to a new generation of buyers, with the millennial generation buying more RDX SUVs and ILX sport sedans than any other vehicle in their segments.
