For 2009, the Acura RDX, a small five-passenger luxury crossover SUV, is upgraded with a four-way power passenger seat, increased coverage for the AcuraLink real-time traffic system and new paint choices. Powered by a 2.3L four-cylinder engine that generates 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, the all-wheel-drive RDX is sportier than most small SUVs and comes equipped with a five-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control. EPA fuel economy estimates come in at 17 mpg city/22 mpg hwy and 19 mpg in combined driving. With its 60/40 split-folding rear seat folded down, the RDX has over 60 cubic feet of easy-to-access cargo space, while the clever center console can accommodate most 15- to 17-inch laptops with room to spare. Boasting excellent crash test scores, Acura RDX standard safety features include front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor, active front head restraints, antilock brakes with brake assist, stability control, and traction control.Read more Read less

Sporty performance and handling for a utility vehicle; versatile cargo space; wide range of luxury features in a compact vehicle.
The luxurious Acura RDX has a high-performance edge and is geared for those who want a sporty, all-weather vehicle but who won't venture off-road. 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.
