Which Acura is Right for You in Chamblee, GA?
When you’re shopping for a new car, there’s no doubt that an Acura would be a great choice for a new vehicle, but which is better for you: a car or an SUV? Every driver has to confront this question at some point. Both have their pros and cons, but one will always be better for your specific lifestyle.
At Ed Voyles Acura, our goal is to make sure you get the car of your dreams, whether it’s a full-size, robust MDX, or a sleek and sporty RLX. Once you know which Acura is right for you and your Chamblee travels, you can visit Ed Voyles Acura online or in-person to explore our new vehicle inventory and find out which vehicle is the right choice for you.
Acura SUVs vs. Cars
When it comes to the differences between SUVs and cars, if price is an important factor for you, then it’s worth noting that SUVs are usually a little more expensive than sedans. However, the larger frame and interior of an SUV might be more beneficial if you plan on growing your family, or if you have an active lifestyle that includes hauling gear for sports, trips, or even work. The money you save by buying a small car could pay you later in frustration when you have to start tying things to the roof of your car because you don’t have enough space.
However, if you’re mostly a commuter, then a compact car might be the obvious best choice. For example, the 2021 ILX gets up to a whopping 34 MPG on the highway. That’s more savings for you on fuel, and fewer stops at the pump, saving you a few extra minutes on your daily drive.
Owning an Acura Car
If you’re looking for the ultimate performance vehicle, there’s the Acura NSX, but for the everyday driver, there are three options for cars from Acura: the ILX, TLX, and RLX.
One obvious benefit Acura offers with all its sedan options is style. Every car in the lineup has a distinct shape, refined look, and luxury touches. If that’s important to you, Acura cars are a great choice.
If affordability is more important to you, opt for the ILX. You’ll still get the luxury look and feel of an Acura, but at a starting price of $26,100 MSRP, you’ll save by cutting a few of the more glamorous features on the TLX and RLX.
Owning an Acura SUV
For SUVs, you have two options: the RDX and MDX. The Acura RDX is the more affordable option, with a starting price of $38,000 MSRP. This model has a highway fuel economy of 28 MPG and a 272-hp 2.0L VTEC Turbo standard engine. The RDX is a two-row SUV, so it has more of the passenger capacity of a car. If your focus is on carrying cargo in the back and not on fitting your six-person family into the car at once, the RDX is a great option.
With the MDX, you have a starting price of $44,500 MSRP, but you also get an extra row of seats in the back. The MDX FWD offers a highway fuel economy of 27 MPG and up to 290 horsepower. Surprisingly, with the extra seats and the higher horsepower, you also get a smoother ride—reviews say the MDX has better braking power than the RDX.
We love that Acura offers two great SUVs at differing price points, so you can get a reliable, comfortable, luxury SUV that works for your budget and still has all the features you’d expect from one of the world’s best carmakers.
