Acura MDX and RDX Win U.S. News & World Report 2014 Best Cars for the Money Awards

Acura MDX and RDX deliver value on a luxury Scale

02/12/2014 – TORRANCE, Calif.

Acura’s hottest sellers, MDX luxury sport utility vehicle and RDX luxury crossover SUV,  have won U.S. News & World Report’s 2014 awards with MDX taking the “Best Luxury 3-Row Midsize SUV For The Money” award and RDX winning the “Best Luxury Compact SUV For The Money” category.

“The MDX and RDX continue to win accolades for their outstanding combination of exhilarating, performance, great fuel efficiency, and outstanding value on a luxury scale,” said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura Sales.  “With the five-passenger RDX and new seven-passenger MDX, Acura has unquestionably two of the most competitive luxury SUVs in the market.”

The “Best Cars for the Money” methodology combines quality and value data into a composite score. Within each of 21 award categories, the vehicle with the highest score is named the “Best Car for the Money” in that category. Quality is measured by the overall score a vehicle achieved in the U.S. News car rankings at the time the awards are published. The rankings, updated monthly at www.usnews.com/cars, compare cars on the basis of safety, reliability and a consensus of industry experts’ opinions. Value is measured by a combination of a vehicle’s five-year total cost of ownership and the average price paid for the vehicle at the time the awards are published.

Acura China's 2014 MDX

Last week Acura China unveiled the new 2014 MDX at the Guangzhou Auto Show, announcing pricing and an on-sale date of early December.

Offered in two trims, the China-spec MDX uses the same 3.5L V-6 engine and has nearly identical specifications as the North American MDX.

There are of course the usual cosmetic changes and additional standard features, as well as some unique, china-only optional accessories which can be seen in one of the images above. The front bumper trim looks interesting, unfortunately I couldn’t find a full body image with it attached.
