The 2018 Acura RDX
The 2018 Acura RDX is a compact luxury SUV that comfortably seats five people and is powered by a 2.5-liter V6 engine good for 279 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. Coming standard on all versions of the SUV are luxury-focused features like a sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio, a seven-speaker sound system with satellite radio, Pandora Internet radio control, and heated power front seats.
In addition to that, there are three available option packages, depending on what aspect of the base vehicle that you wish to upgrade.
