The 2013 Acura RDX was recently awarded the 2013 Polk Automotive Loyalty Award as the winner in the Luxury Compact SUV category. Built for the size of your life the redesigned 2013 Acura RDX has the design, features, and functionality that keep customers coming back to this model year after year.

As the only fact-based awards in the industry based on owner loyalty, the Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards are presented by the IHS Automotive and recognize OEMs that demonstrate a manufacturer’s ability to retain owners over repeat buying cycles. When a household that owns a new vehicle returns to the market and purchases or leases another new vehicle in the same model or make they are recorded as being loyal to that model or make. To determine the 2013 award winners, more than 7.4 million households that purchased new vehicles during the 2013 model year were closely analyzed.

“The RDX has proven to be an increasingly popular model with our customers” shares Duane Sanders, General Manager of Santa Barbara Auto Group. “With monthly sales records being set for 21 straight months and over 50% sales growth from the prior year, we are hearing loud and clear that customer love and return to the Acura RDX.”

The 2013 Acura RDX was completely redesigned to feature a new 273-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine. With a 6-speed automatic transmission and an available all-wheel drive system, the RDX proved many good reasons to be loyal. The exterior is aerodynamically efficient with Amplitude Reactive Dampers and also features a motion adaptive electronic power steering system to ensure a safe and smooth ride. Powerfully efficient with the best-in-class EPA fuel economy rating, the RDX utilizes iVetch technology to deliver the most power possible, while still keeping the environment in mind. Highly functional elegance is what customers expect from the interior and the RDX delivers with standard leather seating and 10-way adjustable lumbar support. The second row seating can be folded flat to allow for an additional 76.9 cu-ft. of flat cargo space offering flexibility at a moment’s notice.

The 2014 RDX model features further refinements on the award winning 2013 RDX. We invite you to see why our customers continue to be loyal Acura RDX owners. Visit Santa Barbara Auto Group today to test drive our wide selection of new or Certified Pre-Owned Acura vehicles.
