Consumer Guide Best Buy Award

Best Value Luxury Car1

When it comes to confidence behind the wheel, nothing is more reassuring than choosing a vehicle that’s been recognized as an outstanding value in its individual segment. Getting the most for your money is always a satisfying feeling. In fact, the expert Consumer Guide® Automotive editorial team agree. They have awarded the three top-selling models in the Acura lineup with Consumer Guide® Best Buys for 2023 in their respective categories1. When choosing their favorites, the team carefully considered criteria which included price, resale value, fuel efficiency, accommodations, features, and performance. Over 150 new vehicles from 18 different segments were evaluated by Consumer Guide®.

  • 2023 Acura RDX - Best Premium Compact Crossover (9th consecutive year)
  • 2023 Acura MDX - Best Premium Midsize Crossover (8th time in 9 years)
  • 2023 Acura TLX - Best Premium Midsize Car (9th consecutive year)
MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Award

MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Award2

Driving enthusiasts continue to choose Acura over the competition for many reasons. Race-inspired engineering, athletic handling, and thrilling turbocharged engine options make the Acura model lineup far more invigorating and engaging to drive compared to the competition. As a result, it comes as no surprise that the dynamic Acura Integra was named Best Sport Sedan of the 2023 MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Awards. "While the original Acura Integra did much to grow the brand's reputation as driver centric, this all-new effort jump started our desire to just head out on the open road for the pure fun of it," said John Davis, host and creator of MotorWeek. "A true sport sedan in every way, it adds spice even to daily commutes, while having enough practicality, along with accessible pricing, to appeal to a broader clientele that just needs a great all-around car."
