Acura has Highest Residual Value Among Luxury Brands
We are proud to announce that the auto experts at Edmunds.com have crowned the Acura brand the leader of luxury brands in residual value. In fact this is the fourth year in a row that Acura has trumped the residual value of all luxury brands participating in four different auto segments and selling 100,000 models or more. For drivers visiting our Wisconsin Acura Dealers, this means that Edmunds’ experts say you can expect your Acura to depreciate more slowly than its competition.
Mike Accavitti, Acura’s Senior Vice President, responded to the award:
“Acura products continue to set the benchmark in the luxury market by providing customers with a unique combination of luxury and performance, leading-edge safety technology and exceptional long-term quality, reliability and durability.”
Why Does Residual Value Matter?
Residual value is the estimated value of a vehicle after a certain amount of time has passed, as expressed as a percentage of its original price. If you’ve ever heard the old story about a car losing half its value when you drive it off the lot, residual value is where that idea comes from.
When shopping for a car, residual value is an important way to know if you are investing your money wisely. Not only did the Acura brand come out ahead of its competitors, Edmunds.com puts the average Acura value at a staggering 46.9% residual value at five years of ownership.
Surging in Sales and Value
It’s no secret that Acura sales have been growing substantially in recent years, with redesigns of the ILX and RDX hitting our showroom and flooding on the streets of Wisconsin. In fact, the 2016 Acura RDX just set a monthly sales record for the vehicle at 5,343 models sold in May, 2015.
With this increase in sales and the residual value recognition, there are about to be many more satisfied Acura drivers on the road.
