Trio of Acura Models Receive 2018 Consumer Guide® Automotive Best Buy Awards

As we drive into 2018, it’s a great time to plan for the year ahead.  What are your business and personal goals and objectives? What do you want to accomplish? Do you have the resources in place to make those things happen? If not, what needs to occur to ensure success?

In the auto industry, business is evolving at a record pace. New car models often have service intervals that are further apart than previous models allowing very little downtime for the driver. The connectivity integrated into many models allow drivers to seamlessly transition mobile devices from home to road. Newer model cars can often let a driver know when they are drifting or too near other vehicles. It’s a changing world in the auto industry and not for the faint of heart.

Not every car manufacturer can boast about awards and recognitions that highlight their model features, but Acura is starting off the year with some impressive accolades. The 2018 Acura RDX, MDX and TLX have received 2018 Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy Awards in their respective segments — 2018 Acura RDX named Best Premium Compact Crossover, 2018 Acura MDX named Best Premium Midsize Crossover, and 2018 Acura TLX named Best Premium Midsize Car.

These three Acura models were selected by the Consumer Guide Automotive editorial team based on a number of criteria including performance, features, accommodations, fuel efficiency, resale value and price.

The 2018 Acura RDX, receiving the Best Buy Award for the sixth consecutive year, continues to be one of the most balanced SUVs on the market, in terms of dynamic performance and fuel efficiency. It seats five adults comfortably and has a long list of desirable features including a powerful V6 engine and available AcuraWatch™ suite of safety and driver assistive technologies.

The Acura MDX tallies its eighth Best Buy Award win since 2009, a significant accolade for the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time. For 2018, the MDX features standard AcuraWatch™, a redesigned user interface with support for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ as well as two new eye-catching red exterior colors.

The Acura TLX has been honored by Consumer Guide every year since its market introduction in 2015. The 2018 TLX has been significantly refreshed with bold new styling, standard AcuraWatch™ safety and driver assistive technologies and an all-new A-Spec variant adding a dynamic dimension to the V6 powered TLX.
