What you see here is the 2013 Acura RDX that has already experienced some facelifts. First the transformation begins with its exterior that is now more refined and having chic look. The RDX brings large metallic fascia up front and crisply angular design down its flanks and hind quarters. The D- pillar and the top of the liftback shape a faux spoiler.
The buyers will get more space for passengers and cargo in the 2013 RDX with nearly one or so improvement in size. The total volume of the car is 103.5 cubic feet. It means the Acura RDX is offering the more space compared to the other rivals such as the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Cadillac SRX, Mercedes-Benz GLK and Lexus RX 350. On the other hand the chargo opening is measured at 48.8 inches that is 6.5 inches wider than the previous. With the second row stowed, there is 76.9 cubic feet extra, while with the second row up it provides 26.1 cubic feet of storage.
The engineers also have fitted some technological equipment into the RDX, such as the keyless entry and push- button start, Pandora internet radio, Bluetooth connectivity that is able to display SMS text messages via the in-dash display, and a Multiview rear camera system that provides three viewing modes including wide view, normal view and top view.
In addition, an eight- inch screen is also added into the technology package that is placed in the center of the dash with VGA resolution. As much 45 GB is especially for storing map data while the rest 15 GB if for media storage. The Technology Package will include and updated 410 watt ELS surround sound audio system and a power ligftgate as well.
Unfortunately, the RDX is lack of blind-spot warning system, adaptive cruise control, parking assist, lane-departure warning and rain-sensing windshield wipers that are provided in its competitors’ features as standard or optional.
The RDX is also offered with just one engine choice that is a 3.5-liter V6 that is good for 273 ponies and 251 lb- ft of torque. The unit enables the RDX to accelerate form zero to standstill in the same sprint time, less than seven seconds. All- wheel drive system and six- speed automatic are available. The brand’s Variable Cylinder Management is helping the car to save fuel consumption.
The base price for the 2013 RDX is at $34,020 excluding $885 destination fee, while the RDX outfitted with the Technology Package will be cost at $38,020 with $1,400 all- wheel drive system.
