In ALG’s 13th Annual Residual Value Awards we once again see Acura as one of the top luxury brands when it comes to resale value. Japanese automakers continue to dominate for 2012 with Lexus taking the top spot followed by Acura and Infiniti. While no Acura models were segment winners in 2012, Acura has consistently placed in the top three for luxury brands over the past few years. Acura was the runner-up in 2011, and was ranked first in 2010 and 2009.
“Recognizing that residual values are a widely used measure of brand health and vehicle quality, ALG honors those vehicles in each segment predicted to retain the highest percentage of their original price after a three year period. The annual awards are derived after careful study of segment competition, sales strategy, resale performance, and industry residual values. ALG also includes Industry Brand Residual Value Awards, bestowed on the brands with the highest predicted resale values among all mainstream and luxury vehicles.” – ALG
