Acura Earns Top Honors in Kelley Blue Book’s Ownership Awards
Known for its competitive prices, low maintenance and luxury performance, Acura has taken home the 2016 Kelley Blue Book (KBB) 5-Year Cost to Own Award for a luxury brand.
The 5-Year Cost to Own Award takes into account finance and insurance fees, estimated fuel costs, maintenance and repair costs, depreciation and state-specific fees such as those in Utah. Acura dealership vehicles beat out luxury competitors Lexus, Buick and Volvo for the top spot.
Vehicles propelling the brand’s success include the 2016 MDX, TLX, RDX and ILX — all of which are available here at Mike Hale Acura in Utah. All models across the Acura lineup benefit from highly competitive fuel economy ratings and minor overall repair costs, in addition to inexpensive insurance rates.
“New-car shoppers usually pay a lot of attention to how much a car will cost upfront; however, sometimes an even more expensive car on the front end can actually save you money during the first five years of ownership by having low total ownership costs,” said Dan Ingle, vice president of vehicle valuations, industry solutions and international at Kelley Blue Book. While buying a luxury car may cost more initially, a well-made vehicle lasts a lifetime.
Acura’s consumer-approved durability and reliability helps keep long-term costs low, and the company’s reputation precedes it — according to KBB, Acura has the lowest average vehicle depreciation of any luxury brand, so consumers get more money when they sell their old cars back to the dealership.
Purchasing an Acura is more than just buying a luxury vehicle — it’s an investment in a car that offers both quality manufacturing and long-term value at a competitive luxury price. With all the amenities of lavish interiors and quality performance, Acura vehicles stand the test of time without breaking the bank.
