The crossover vehicle segment can be a tricky one. Drivers
are often looking for the best of both worlds when looking to buy a crossover,
and many of them fail to deliver. Many crossovers can be too rooted in their
bigger SUV style and offer little in the way of compact attributes like
precision drive style and excellent fuel economy. However, here at Acura of Peabody, we want drivers to
know that the 2017
Acura RDX is the crossover that can give you it all. This premium compact
crossover gives drivers everything they could want in a crossover and more.
2017 Acura RDX Details
The 2017 Acura RDX was completely redesigned last year and
all that new technology is still breathtaking. One of the exciting new options
on the 2017 Acura RDX is an updated color palette which will provide drivers
with a great opportunity to enhancing both the interior and exterior of the
vehicle. The 2017 Acura RDX is available to drivers in just one trim but with
three optional packages to customize the vehicle with the features that you
want. The first package is the AcuraWatch Plus package, which is all about
safety technology. The second package is the Technology package, which equips
the 2017 Acura RDX with features like leather upholstery, voice commands, an
eight-way power front passenger seat, a 10-speaker Acura/ELS surround-sound
system, and an 8-9 inch display screen coupled with an additional 7-inch
touchscreen. The final package is the Advance package, which bundles the
features of the AcuraWatch and Technology packages and adds things like
auto-dimming side view mirrors and fog lights.
2017 Acura RDX Safety and Special Features
Many of the 2017 Acura RDX safety features can be found in the Technology and AcuraWatch packages, and they're truly top-of-the-line. Optional safety features that can be equipped on the 2017 Acura RDX include forward collision mitigation with automatic braking, lane-departure warning, forward collision warning, a blind spot monitor, and lane-departure intervention.
The interior of the 2017 Acura RDX is both spacious and
comfortable with supportive seats and extensive legroom for rear seat
passengers. Drivers will net 26.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats
up, which then widens to an impressive 61.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity with
the rear seats folded down. Under the hood is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that is
rated at a peppy 279 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired
with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive by default,
although drivers can opt for all-wheel drive.
This set-up allows for responsive and smooth acceleration.
