Acura is making a big splash in the area of luxury sedans and is giving customers just what they are looking for with their 2017 Acura RDX. It features a robust powertrain, a quiet cabin, terrific safety ratings- and enough practicality and versatility to make it one of the most balanced vehicles in its class.
The RDX was designed for practicality, but the styling is sleek, with striking fender arches, spectacular LED headlights lined up like diamonds. For 2017, two new color choices are a significant change in this lineup.
The 3.5-liter V-6 engine of last year has received a boost to 279hp, 252 pound-feet of torque, in addition to its improved turning radius. It’s perfect for cruising in town and really excels in stop-and-go traffic. The ample torque from its V-6 engine means you don’t have to downshift in order to accelerate.
It handles like a finely tuned sedan, and its compact size makes it easy to park. Handling is well balanced on winding roads, and it is very fun to drive. With the addition of the optional all-wheel-drive system, the RDX delivers more power to the rear wheels during acceleration for better stability, adding to the already excellent handling characteristics. The RDX is very responsive without losing the smooth and refined acceleration you expect from a high-end SUV.
The cabin delivers the right mixture of elegance and sportiness; which describes the priorities expressed in this groundbreaking crossover. Comfortable seating in a very quiet cabin that is brilliantly designed to incorporate all the best characteristics of luxury and utility gives you a full 360-degree driving experience no matter what kind of driving you like to do.
When it comes to safety, the 2017 Acura RDX is of the best-performing models in its class. Front, side, and curtain airbags all come standard, as do the anti-lock brake system, traction control, electronic stability control, a rearview camera, as well as an advanced rollover sensor.
While the 2017 RDX is an SUV, it has many of the handling characteristics of a car and is very sporty and responsive in all conditions. Its compact size makes it very maneuverable even in tight corners and parks like a dream. It’s right at home in winding roads with superior cornering capabilities for an SUV, making it a pleasure to drive whether you’re navigating the city or out on country roads.
It comes with a muscular V-6 engine that is surprisingly fuel efficient. It received high marks from all the major automobile reviewers as it takes advantage of all the modern eco-friendly advances in engine technology.
According to the EPA, the RDX rates 20 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, 23 mpg combined.
