The Acura RDX: Setting New Standards for Crossovers

Jul 9, 2008
As crossover vehicles become more and more popular, the Acura RDX, a small luxury crossover, available today at Acura of Tempe in the Phoenix area, establishes itself as not only an adventurous SUV but also has moved forward from the rest with some of the most technological features available. The RDX combines it's highly mechanized architecture and performance capabilities to offer a level of intrigue many crossover makers simply cannot match.

The Acura RDX design team focused on maintaining the highest levels of functionality incorporated inside a sporty look. The design was meant to appeal to a wide age range due to its combination of class, sport and function and buying trends indicate the attempt was a success. The Acura RDX is the first factory Acura with a turbocharged engine making it stand out as a crossover built for on road performance. The Acura RDX is definitely driver's dream on the road combined with the look of a small sports utility vehicle.

Many would be tempted to compare the Acura RDX to the Honda CR-V, of which there is very little mechanical similarity, the RDX is much more upscale in terms of interior design, features and performance. Its all-new engine is a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that's capable of 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It drives like a sport sedan. It's quick and extremely nimble through corners. The turbocharged engine is a thrill and makes the RDX exciting to drive, providing 0-60-mph times in the high-6-second range.

The Acura RDX comes standard as a five-speed automatic transmission (with paddle shifters) and is equipped with Acura's advanced Super Handling All Wheel Drive system. This innovative technology continuously varies power among all four wheels to enhance handling and aid in wet-weather traction.

The target market for the RDX is a wide one when it comes to age definitions. The younger generation is drawn to the sporty look and the older generation is reassured by the wide range of high quality safety features.

The Acura RDX lives up to the Acura tradition by offering some of the most technological features available; full display navigation including real-time traffic, driver's voice recognition, personalized settings, Bluetooth, surround sound, dual-zone and GPS link temperature control, power windows, power locks, power moon roof and power lumbar support and more!
