How much is a used car of Changan Automobile (how much is a used car of Changan Automobile)

Guangzhou Automobile Acura, a luxury brand, is short-lived. It took only seven years from the launch of its first model in 2016 to its formal withdrawal from the China market in 2023, becoming the first Japanese luxury brand to withdraw from the China market. In fact, before Guangzhou Automobile Acura was made in China, there were Acura cars on the market. For example, Acura MDX was an imported medium and large SUV, which was officially introduced to China market in 2007. At that time, it sold for 720,000 yuan and landed over 800,000 yuan, which was not much cheaper than Audi Q7 at that time. By eulogizing the development history of MDX, we can see the general trend of energy saving and emission reduction. Its displacement is getting lower and lower, and there are more and more gears in the gearbox, but no matter what engine it is equipped with, it keeps the "bottom line" of V6.

The 2007 model is equipped with a 3.7-liter V6 engine, with a maximum power of 226 kW and a maximum torque of 379 Nm. The transmission system is a 5AT gearbox.

The 2014 model is equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine with a maximum power of 215kW and a maximum torque of 360 N m. The transmission system is a 6AT gearbox.

The 2017 model is equipped with a 3.0L V6 engine with a maximum power of 192kW and a maximum torque of 296 N m. The transmission system is a 7-speed wet dual-clutch gearbox. However, this generation of cars has adopted a hybrid system of oil and electricity, and the motor can provide a power output of 89 kW/294 N m, but the acceleration ability is stronger.

However, the sales volume of Acura MDX is not satisfactory. It is "common practice" to have 35 units a month. It is not that its product strength is not good, but that its competitors are too strong. At that time, Audi Q7 was not as "lonely" as it is now. With its "tall and powerful" design, it was invincible in the market, leaving BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE far behind, and even Mercedes-Benz ML was "sold".

If we look at it now, the best-selling luxury SUV of this level is BMW X5, followed by Mercedes-Benz GLE. Audi Q7 has fallen behind, and sometimes its sales are not as high as Volvo XC90.

Another important reason for the sluggish sales of Acura MDX is that its chassis suspension is not "advanced". People are all front wishbones, but what about it? Former McPherson! Regardless of the level of suspension adjustment, just looking at the suspension structure can "persuade" many people.

Second, the price. A medium and large SUV of a second-tier luxury brand has set the price of a first-tier luxury brand. Isn't this driving consumers to B, B and A? On the other hand, the Lexus RX next door is very rational. It was introduced to the domestic market in 2016. At that time, the price was 390,000, which was almost half cheaper than Acura MDX. It is not difficult to understand why Acura MDX "can't sell".

There are also some consumers who don't like its logo very much. How did they turn the steering wheel around and become Changan Automobile?

Although Guangzhou Automobile Acura introduced TLX, CDX, RDX and other relatively "people-friendly" models, these models were basically "unsolvable", and consumers seemed to have prejudice against Japanese luxury brands. Except Acura, the sales in Britain and finidi were not satisfactory, and Lexus was basically "unsolvable" except ES. Among luxury brands, German brands, such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi, are very popular, while French luxury brand DS, Swedish luxury brand Volvo, British luxury brand Jaguar Land Rover, American luxury brands Cadillac and Lincoln have become more and more marginal.

Out of curiosity, I searched the second-hand car of Acura MDX from the Internet, and found that the price of a 2007 model that was licensed in 2008 was 49,000 yuan, and a 15-year-old car was less than 50,000 yuan. I felt that its preservation rate was not very low. Finally, what do you think of Acura MDX?
