(continued from above)

The Acura RDX burst on to the Sport Utility Vehicle scene in 2007. Upon its debut, the RDX 5-passenger crossover SUV generated excellent reviews and strong praise. Never content with "well enough", Acura engineers set out to develop a whole new RDX for 2013. The latest RDX significantly ups the game with its all new looks, a new engine, a new transmission and even a new all-wheel-drive system. The RDX exterior incorporates a sleek (more aerodynamically efficient) body and chassis updates abound in the form of a longer wheelbase with increased track, all-new Amplitude Reactive Dampers and a new motion adaptive electronic power steering system. Copious use of technology has always been key with Acura vehicles, and the 2013 RDX provides even more driver relevant technology features than before. Smart luxury has long been a tenet for Acura, and the new RDX delivers this in spades.

Inside the 2013 RDX, occupants will appreciate a new interior design along with the luxurious materials. New sweeping shapes, matte surface trim and generous use of leather combine to give the RDX interior an upscale look and luxury feel that Acura customers have come to expect. When driving, the rich interior materials, abundant use of noise insulation materials and numerous high-tech appointments (such as Active Noise Control) team to provide an exceptionally quiet cabin. Features such as larger door openings, more passenger room, larger cargo volume and a new power rear tailgate make the RDX interior even more accommodating for owners who are on the go.

Passenger safety has always been a cornerstone with every Acura model and the 2013 RDX employs new design features and numerous high strength materials aimed specifically at occupant protection. As a result, top scores in government (NHTSA) and independent (IIHS) crash testing are expected.

Entry Level SUV Market

The Entry Premium SUV segment is relatively new and is populated by a small group of vehicles including the Acura RDX, Audi Q5, BMW X3, Infinity EX35, Mercedes GLK350, Volkswagen Tiguan and Volvo XC60. This vehicle segment is expected to grow significantly in the next few years and the 2013 RDX positions Acura strongly within it - with its host of unique and attractive features.
