Special features for 2008

The luxurious 2008 Acura RDX has a high-performance edge and is geared for those who want a sporty, all-weather vehicle but don't intend to go off-roading. The RDX has more curvaceous, edgy styling than other compact SUVs while still having a roomy, flexible interior. It also stands out for safety features and crash protection; Acura says its one of only two luxury SUVs to achieve both a five-star rating in federal front- and side-impact crash tests and be an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick.


The 2008 Acura RDX is considered a crossover SUV, or a CUV as the phrase has been coined. If it’s a solid SUV you’re after, the RDX is a great choice with its leather upholstery, heated seats and 18-inch alloy wheels, among other luxury appointments. The RDX features a 240 horsepower 2.3-liter gas-powered inline 4-cylinder with a 5-speed automatic transmission and 4WD. Available in a base model or one fitted with a tech package, the RDX comes nicely equipped with dual zone climate control, keyless entry, full power accessories and solid safety equipment.
