Kelley Blue Book Awards Acura as Best Cost-To-Own Brand

Kelley Blue Book recognizes Acura for offering long-term reliability, low-cost ownership, and pricing below the competition.

In addition, Kelley Blue Book includes the vehicle’s projected depreciation in value over time. Acura has proven to [...]
