“Edmunds.com found that Honda’s average projected retained value after five years is 47.9%, while Acura’s average projected retained value is 44.6%.”
The Acura MDX took top spot in the SUV Over $45,000 segment, while the Acura TL and TSX are honorable mentions in the Sedan $30K-$40K segment.
“Honda has long had a reputation for dependable used vehicles, and that is reflected in today’s booming used car market, “ said Joe Spina, Director of Remarketing at Edmunds.com. “And with Acura beating out all other luxury brands, Honda’s family of vehicles continues to expand the company’s status as one of the best values available to car buyers today. “
This is Acura’s first time as the Luxury brand winner and Honda’s second consecutive win in the Non-Luxury division.
