Acura's Crossover: The RDX

Jul 10, 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 has an unusually universal appeal. Its high functionality makes it a practical choice. Its sporty look makes it a fun choice. And its luxurious features make it the comfortable choice. It's the first factory Acura to offer a turbocharged engine; it's built for great road performance. You definitely get the look of the SUV with great on road handling; which is the purpose of the Crossover 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 Acura RDX also took advantage of the latest technology when it comes to safety features. Acura's RDX includes: surrounding airbags, anti lock brake system and electronic brake distribution, vehicle stability assist & advanced compatibility engineering. The thorough safety design is another reason why the Acura RDX is so popular. The mid to older generation is very comfortable with the safety ratings of the vehicle making it the choice for another segment of the crossover market.

Acura also took advantage of a few technological advances for the RDX design not directly related to safety! Drivers will find they appreciate the full display navigation w/real time traffic, voice recognition and Bluetooth. Everyone in the vehicle will appreciate the surround sound, personalized settings, and dual-zone/GPS link temperature controls as well as power windows, locks and moon roof. And that's not even a complete list of the luxury and comfort design features included in the RDX!

While the Acura RDX has been compared to similar small crossover vehicles such as the Honda CR-V, the truth is; the RDX surpasses them with performance, handling, luxury, comfort and more.
