Well-mannered handling; Honda's first turbo engine; lots of luxury.
The 2007 Acura RDX is one of the few vehicles on the market that combines handling, good power, the latest technology, and room for five with nearly 30 cubic feet of cargo space. This new model is a sharply-styled cute-ute that could give fashion lessons to other SUVs.
The snazzy interior is even more up to date than the hip exterior. The comfortable leather seats not only offer plenty of back and thigh support, they score well in the oft-neglected shoulder support category.
The 2.3L DOHC 16-valve i-VTEC is Honda's first turbo motor sold in the U.S. Unlike many turbo engines that play up top-end-bang at the cost of bottom end grunt, this engine has both. It pumps out 240-horsepower at 6,000 rpms, yet it also generates 260 ft-lbs of torque at only 4,500 rpms. In other words you won't get surprised by a big rush of power mid-corner, or be too disappointed if you were towing a trailer with your RDX.
A five-speed automatic transmission with nicely-placed paddle shifters helps to let you forget you're behind the wheel of a 65-inch tall, 3,935-lb familymobile. But it is the latest version of Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system that really makes those four 235/55R18 all-season tires put the power to the pavement. It not only apportions power front to rear, but also from side-to-side in the back, resulting in handling that is amazingly crisp for an SUV. The ride isn't too bad either.
The RDX may seem a bit pricy with its $32,995 starting cost. But it includes such upmarket items as a 360-watt AM/FM stereo with six-disc in-dash CD changer and MP3 player, and XM satellite radio. Safety is covered by front air bags, front side air bags, side curtain air bags with rollover sensor, and four-wheel ABS-equipped disc brakes. Luxury items include dual-zone automatic climate control system and a power moonroof
A Technology Package is available for a $3,500 premium, and includes a 410-watt Acura/ELS Surround Premium 10-speaker Sound System with six-disc CD changer, DVD-audio, DTS, and Dolby Pro Logic II. An easy-to-use GPS with voice recognition and a highly useful rearview camera is also part of the package, as is the AcuraLink satellite communication system with real-time traffic, and Bluetooth capability.
The five-seat Acura RDX SUV is a brand-new model for 2007, lining up next to the seven-seat MDX. It packs Honda's first turbo motor sold in the U.S, giving it plenty of punch. Its fresh styling and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) aim to round out Acura's SUV model lineup.
Unlike some SUVs that wouldn't know sport if they drove right through it, the 2007 Acura RDX's mission is to emphasize driving pleasure over outright utility. The 101.4 cubic feet of EPA passenger volume and 28.8 cubic feet of cargo space are adequate for a light-packing family of four (five in a pinch), but one trip down your favorite back road and you'll know why most buyers wind up choosing this Acura.
