2015 Acura MDX, RDX, TLX are ‘Best Cars for the Money’ awardees

Article by Andrew Christian, on February 11, 2015

Acura has three luxury performance models that were applauded by the U.S. News Best Cars for their level of quality and value. Last February, Acura was recognized at the U.S. News & World Report's 2015 Best Cars for the Money awards.

The 2015 MDX was named the Best Luxury 3-Row SUV for the Money. Meanwhile, the 2015 RDX got the Best Luxury Compact SUV for the Money award. The winner of the Upscale Midsize Car category was the 2015 TLX. For the third straight year, the MDX, the top-selling 3-row luxury SUV in the U.S., was listed as a Best Cars for the Money recipient.

Meanwhile, it’s now the second consecutive year that the RDX was named Best Compact SUV. Presented as a new model in August last year, the TLX is both a hit when it comes to sales and in front of industry critics.

Michael Accavitti, senior vice president and general manager, Acura Division, said that getting recognition for its top-selling SUVs and its new performance sedan reflects the strong momentum that drives the brand forward. He added that it is Acura’s “performance, proportion and prestige” that has gotten the attention of the consumers and the marketplace.

How the Best Cars for the Money awards is determined is by combining quality and value data into a composite score. The model that has the top score in each of the 21 categories is given the award as the Best Car for the Money in that category.

The overall score in the U.S. News car rankings at the time the awards are announced determines quality. To know its value, it looks at the five-year total cost of ownership and the average price paid for the vehicle during the time that the awards are published.
