2016 Acura RDX crossover hits the US automotive markets

A brand-new compact 2016 Acura RDX crossover hits the US automotive markets becoming even more luxurious, powerful and fuel-efficient.

The new four-door vehicle features a 3.5-liter V-6 I-VTEC engine with six-speed automatic shiftable transmission. According to the Acura’s press release, the level of fuel economy makes 20\29mpg (in the city and on the highway respectively) and the crossover produces 279hp and 252 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive train and outstanding fuel economy make the RDX crossover a reliable choice for a luxurious compact SUV. So the 2016 Acura makeover appears to look more brightened and refreshed.

The current crossover version after a full makeover becomes upgraded. The model features JewelEye optics, spacious rear seats with ample legspace, a new stylish grille, new taillights and LED headlights as for the exterior. The 2016 interior has been restyled with some extra equipment while the standard features list actually becomes just the same. A new 4.2-inch TFT-touchscreen is available optionally (however, don’t waste your money – it is an awkward choice to use comfortably). The interior takes such optional changes as a blind-spot monitoring system, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. Rather competitive pricing tag is another great virtue of this Acura SUV.
