2011 Acura RDX SH-AWD SUV

2011 Acura RDX Review

(3 Stars)  Not enough against fierce rivals

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Making its debut in 2007 the Acura RDX has become a very high profile vehicle that has been getting a lot of attention from the American consumer. This SUV that is technically in the entry level price range offers a high level of features and performance for its price. There have been many changes since it was first released in 2007, the 2010 model now comes in a front wheel drive version that offers a considerable discount to the consumer.

The newer RDX also offers a slight advantage when it comes to mileage. The 2WD version offers a 2 mile per gallon gain, but still requires the owner to fill it with premium gasoline. The 2010 Acura RDX is one of strongest in its class and is competing with models that are much more expensive. This supercharged SUV brings a lot of value and a huge amount of features to the table. Seating up to five passengers, this unibody SUV has many options and features that you would expect to find on a high end passenger car, but the Acura RDX comes complete with all the extras.
