The 2013 Acura MDX Named Best for the Money

April 30th, 2013 by

Available now to Chicago area drivers, the 2013 Acura MDX represents the ideals of Acura, offering luxury at an affordable rate and a variety of high-tech amenities. Drivers will enjoy the power of a 3.7L V6 under the hood and plenty of cargo space to serve as a versatile family vehicle.

It’s little wonder, then, that it was named by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best cars for the money.

Earning the Accolades

They don’t just hand out these awards like candy, and the determination of which vehicles are the “Best Cars for the Money” is done by combining value and quality information into a compound score in one of 21 different award categories. Quality is determined by the online rankings the vehicle has received at the time of publication, while value is based on the MDX’s five year cost to own. These two traits, when combined with the available amenities, determine a victor for each class of vehicles.

Getting 300 hp from the 3.7L engine, drivers will be in control with a six-speed automatic transmission and Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. This handling combined with the safety provided by the patented Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure and superb crash test results from both the NHTSA and the IIHS make the MDX an excellent choice for drivers seeking a luxurious and well-equipped family vehicle. With three rows, it’s easy to switch between people hauling and cargo moving in a pinch, giving it the versatility you need in a family auto.

Standard equipment in the cabin includes:

  • Heated eight-way power front seating
  • Tri-zone climate control
  • Bluetooth phone connectivity
  • Satellite radio and eight-speaker sound system

Drivers can upgrade to the technology package for a voice-controlled navigation system, multiview parking camera, 10-speaker stereo system, and more.
