Acura MDX and Acura RDX Awards

We want to take a moment to brag about some of our family members: The Acura MDX and the Acura RDX.

Anyone who has driven an MDX and an RDX already knows the meaning of true joy, but let us tell you something you may not know: Our pride at the MDX and RDX's achievements isn't just all in our heads. They've got the awards to prove it.



MDX

AutoGuide.com Utility Vehicle of Year Award

This one is pretty self explanatory (and not surprising for Acura MDX owners).

"It's never an easy decision to give an award to a luxury car because they obviously come with top quality finishings and plenty of high-tech features, but what impressed us about the MDX is just what you get for your money," said AutoGuide Editorial Director Colum Wood.

He's of course referencing the class-leading fuel economy, the uncompromising 290 hp engine, and the comfort and quietness all 7 passengers will enjoy during your car rides.

RDX

2013 Polk Automotive Loyalty Award

The Acura RDX is such a great car, and people love the experience of driving it so much, that it creates loyal Acura brand advocates.

This means that because of their experience with the Acura RDX, people went back and bought another Acura that was the same make, model, or manufacturer. And this isn't a based on a judge's opinion, it's based on actual purchase and leasing data.

"The MDX and RDX continue to win accolades for their outstanding combination of exhilarating, performance, great fuel efficiency, and outstanding value on a luxury scale," said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura Sales. "With the five-passenger RDX and new seven-passenger MDX, Acura has unquestionably two of the most competitive luxury SUVs in the market."

And we tend to agree.
