The Acura brand ranked first in overall luxury brand residual value in the recently announced Automotive Lease Guide (ALG) 2009 Residual Value Awards. According to ALG, Acura's line of luxury performance vehicles is expected to retain the highest percentage of its purchase price after a traditional three year lease.
"Residual value is an important measure of overall vehicle quality and desirability," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president of sales. "ALG's prestigious award is yet another example of how the Acura brand is a top competitor in luxury, performance, cutting-edge technology, safety as well as in resale value.

This year's ALG awards are based on 2009 model year vehicles and Acura beat out top luxury brands such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche, Audi and Lexus.
