The seven-passenger 2013 Acura MDX has been named the “Best Luxury 3-Row Midsize SUV for the Money” by U.S. News & World Report in its 2013 Best Cars for the Money awards. The “Best Cars for the Money” structure combines quality and value data into a combined score. Quality is measured by the overall score a vehicle achieved and value is measured by a combination of a vehicle’s five-year total cost of ownership and the average price paid for the vehicle at the time the awards are published. Within each award category, the vehicle with the highest score is named the “Best Car for the Money” in that category. The rankings compare cars on the basis of safety, reliability and a consensus of industry experts’ opinions.
