In tough economic times, choosing the right vehicle has never been more important. Blending a smart balance of sport and utility, the 2011 Acura RDX offers a “right sized” package matched with a turbocharged powertrain and the available sure-footedness of Acura’s acclaimed Super Handling All-Wheel Drive — all wrapped in supple luxury.
With two models available in two trim choices, the 2011 RDX comes standard with a two-wheel-drive drivetrain. For those looking for sportier performance or all-weather capability, the RDX with SH-AWD will be right choice for them. Both models come standard with a wide array of features and available is the Technology Package.
Externally, the 2011 RDX has an aggressive, sporty appearance thanks to bold front and rear fascias, Acura’s signature grille, pronounced wheel arches, 18-inch 10-spoke aluminum wheels and upscale trim accents. On the inside, the RDX makes use of a rich blend of leather, artful stitchwork and flowing curves- paired with lots of cutting edge technology.
The RDX is equipped with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. Rated output is 240 horsepower with 260 lb-ft of torque.
Inside every RDX, leather trimmed front seats deliver a luxury feel as well as a high outward visibility “eye point” that provides a confident field of view. The RDX has soothing blue low-level ambient lighting in the ceiling that illuminates the front center console area along with ambient blue footwell lighting.
The 3-passenger rear seat has a 60/40 split-folding capability and, when folded flat, significantly expands the load area- increasing the total cargo volume to 60.6 cubic feet.
Base model estimated mpg: 19/24
Estimated starting price: $32,620
