Acura Financial Services ™ offers exclusive financing options for graduates, giving them the ability to move into the innovative luxury of a new or Certified Pre-Owned Acura after years of hard work. It’s called the Acura College Graduate Program, and it offers many different options, one of which is sure to fit everyone. Stop by Tucson Acura to find the best option for you.

The benefits of the Acura College Graduate Program include Flexible and competitive financing, awesome lease packages on any new or Certified Pre-Owned Acura vehicle, and a deferred first-payment option for 90 days, with 60 days of no interest.

To qualify, you must have a minimum of 5% down payment, no adverse credit history, verifiable proof of employment or a firm commitment from an employer with a start date no more than 120 days from the date of the Acura Graduate contract, and have graduated in the past two years or will graduate in the next four months with a master’s, bachelor’s or associate degree from a U.S.-accredited college or registered nursing school.

For those who anticipate keeping their vehicle for more than five years, they should consider traditional financing.  Although it can be perceived that this is a more costly option, there are plenty of ways to lower costs. A low down payment and a loan structure of a longer term on a used or new Acura car can cut costs significantly.

For those who prefer more flexibility, leasing may be a better option. One of the benefits of leasing is that leasing is about options. It is possible to choose the length of your lease term, purchase your vehicle at lease end or turn it in for something new. It’s all up to you. Leasing is also a great way to get into a new or Certified Pre-Owned Acura with low up-front costs and low monthly payments. Leasing an Acura through Acura Financial Services allows you enjoy Acura Loyalty Advantage,  an exclusive benefit that gives you flexibility should you drive over or under your contracted lease miles.

Acura has become a household name in the world of luxury automobiles with successful entries in multiple segments.  It should come as no surprise, then, that one of the most anticipated unveils in this year’s auto shows was the third generation of Acura’s mid-size crossover SUV: the 2014 Acura MDX.

The 2014 MDX builds on two prior generations with its numerous improvements.  Per Acura (via J.D. Power and Associates), one of the primary goals for the 2014 MDX was improved fuel economy.  This was achieved by adding a new powerplant: a 3.5-liter V6 with Variable Cylinder Management that the MDX shares with Acura’s flagship RLX sedan.  The VCM system disengages some of the engine’s cylinders when throttle requirements are low, ensuring that excess power (and fuel) is not wasted when the MDX is traveling at a steady pace.

Additionally, Acura remodeled the MDX’s exterior design to improve aerodynamics and lengthened the crossover’s wheelbase for greater stability and improved interior space.  A casual glance at the new MDX reveals a modernized front end with LED headlights framing Acura’s staple wedge-shaped bumper and grille.

Of course, no luxury crossover is complete without a bevy of technological upgrades.  If you are interested in “creature comforts,” the new MDX will comfortably seat seven passengers and bathe them in premium sound.  The MDX will also include an improved version of the AcuraLink connectivity suite – Pandora streaming, email/text messaging, and digital traffic notifications are just a few of the features outlined in the J.D. Power and Associates preview.

The 2014 Acura MDX will be offered in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive trims with numerous top-of-the line safety features designed both to prevent collisions and protect occupants if one occurs.  Active cruise control, blind-spot warning systems, and the proprietary Lane Keeping Assist system are just a few of the ways that the MDX helps its driver avoid trouble.

The associates at Chapman Acura are committed to providing a purchase experience which exceeds expectations.  After all, consumers demand the best from brands like Acura, and producing some of the finest automobiles available is just one way to serve the needs of the automotive community.  To learn more about the many ways that the 2014 Acura MDX – or any of Acura’s other fine autos – can improve your driving experience, contact Chapman Acura today.
