Cheri Fleming, Dealer and Principal for Valencia Acura
As defined, a short list is a group of selected candidates from which a final choice is made.
It could be a short list of qualified job applicants or maybe your business or brand makes the short list for award consideration. Or, it could be a short list of autos that you’re considering for your next purchase.
Whatever the category, there is criteria you consider important to help navigate the sea of choices. Based on that criteria, you’ll create a much shorter consideration set by eliminating those choices that don’t align.
Car buying has changed over the years. A simple internet search brings up vast amounts of information on every make and model. Filtering through the results can be time consuming and mind boggling. Another option is to consider third-party recommendations, like Kelley Blue Book, J.D. Powers and Associates, Consumer Guide, and others. The information gleaned from trusted sources is presented and awarded based on merit.
If your criteria includes high performance, safety ratings, luxury amenities at an affordable price, resale value, and a lower projected cost of ownership, consider adding Acura to your short list.
Acura was named the top luxury brand in Kelley Blue Book’s 2020 5-Year Cost to Own Awards, with the Acura ILX topping the Entry-Level Luxury Car category for the fifth-straight year. The Acura MDX achieved top-billing in the Luxury Mid-Size Three-Row segment, a third win for MDX.
When it comes to safety, Acura’s 2020 models — ILX, TLX, RLX, RDX and MDX — all received 5-Star ratings by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The accolades go on more than space permits but research the awards that best align with what’s important to you.
Delivering precision crafted performance — a commitment to evocative styling, high performance and innovative engineering — Acura is a leading automotive luxury nameplate built on a foundation of quality and reliability. The Acura lineup features six distinctive models — the RLX premium luxury sedan, the TLX performance luxury sedan, the ILX sport sedan, the five-passenger RDX luxury crossover SUV, the seven-passenger Acura MDX, America’s all-time best-selling three-row luxury SUV, and the next-generation, electrified NSX supercar.
