Acura Depreciation

Brand new Acuras don't hold their value well, especially against the likes of Lexus and Tesla. The MDX does reasonably well in its segment, but you should love it before you buy a new one, and you should plan to hold onto it for at least 6 or 7 years, as it will do better with age.

The 2017 is our top pick for the best model year value for the Acura vehicles. With the 2017, you would only pay, on average, 55% of the price as new, with 75% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2016 and 2015 model years are also attractive years for the Acura models, and provide a relatively good value. Our rankings consider multiple factors, including original new prices, current prices, maintenance costs and remaining years of overall predictabe expenses. Our top ranked model year represents the most car for the money with a Acura model.

About Our Data and "Useful Lifespan"

We aggregate and analyze millions of automotive data points from a variety of sources, including some of the industry's leading data providers. The historical depreciation tables, charts, values and overall rankings are conducted on a semi-annual basis, with our most recent update published in April 2020.

While the "Useful Lifespan" of a vehicle will vary greatly from one model to the next, and even one owner to the next, we have determined that twelve years is the most appropriate timeframe which will yield us good, usable data - and that any data beyond that timeframe becomes more dispersed, and ultimately less reliable. Moreover, maintenance costs beyond that timeframe become significantly more varied, as a vehicle owner's care of a particular vehicle will greatly impact its value, and ongoing maintenance costs. We are very much hopeful, however, that your car or truck will last well beyond twelve years, and that it gets you to where you want to go.
