A Crossover Worth Crossing The Road For: The Acura RDX

Jul 11, 2008
The Acura RDX is one of the most popular options available at Acura of Tempe. Crossover vehicles in general are becoming increasingly more popular. And the Acura RDX stands apart from the rest with a unique combination of design and performance that takes it to a level unmatched in the industry. This luxury crossover is one that the competition doesn't have to stand aside for; it's already passed by the competition!

One of Acura's goals when designing the RDX was to design it in a way that not only maintains functionality, but also affords it a sporty look which would appeal to both a younger and older generation of SUV drivers. The RDX is also the first factory Acura product to utilize a turbocharged engine. This, along with the vehicle's design focus on on-road performance rather than off-road ability, reinforces the crossover's purpose as a sporty performer inside the body of a small SUV.

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.

Drivers of the Acura RDX appreciate the standard five speed automatic transmission and the Super Handling All Wheel Drive System. The inclusion of this technology means that power is continuously distributed among all 4 wheels to provide the best handling and to prevent traction loss incidents in wet weather. Visit www.AcuraDealerTempe.com for more information on the Acura RDX's Super Handling All Wheel Drive technology.

The Acura RDX offers more standout features when it comes to safety. Some of the most advanced safety features available have been included in the RDX design: vehicle stability assist, surrounding airbags, ABS, electronic brake distribution, and advanced compatibility engineering. 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.

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!

Comparisons have been made to other crossovers in the industry. But the fact of the matter is...the Acura RDX stands alone in the industry. The Acura RDX offers higher levels of performance, better handling, more luxury & comfort.
