The Acura RDX is for drivers who value comfort, safety, and technology, but still want a luxurious driving experience.

The Acura RDX is sort of the little brother option to the Acura MDX. It is a compact luxury crossover SUV that is simple, but elegant from the inside out. The Tampa Bay Times claimed that, “Acura may have found its aesthetic sweet spot” with the RDX. The 2016 model of the RDX one-ups its predecessors in every aspect by sporting a simple, sexy style while bringing more content, more safety features, a modest power increase, and 1-mpg rise in EPA highway fuel economy to an impressive 28-mpg with all-wheel drive. As an authorized Acura dealer, Acura Santa Barbara is excited to offer this level of luxury at an affordable price. So come visit Acura Santa Barbara to learn more about our different Acura RDX models and other luxury Acura models.

The Acura RDX is Safe, Smooth, and Stylish

One thing that Acura drivers can always count on is that the designers of their vehicle had safety in mind as a top priority. The Acura RDX is another example of this. Some safety features available for the luxury crossover are:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist – This feature applies brakes to each individual tire as needed to reduce the risk of over or understeering or loss of traction in wet or unstable conditions.
  • Blind Spot Information System – This feature can detect vehicle’s in the next lane’s alert zone while going over 20 mph. If the driver signals that he/she is changing to that lane, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors with Multi-View Rear Camera – This feature alerts the driver when they are nearing an object while parking with a series of beeps that becomes more rapid as the driver gets closer. The multi-view rear camera assists the driver in determining the width and depth of parking spots, giving a clear view as to whether there are any obstacles.

In addition to safety, the Acura RDX delivers a smooth driving experience on just about any driving surface, eliminating the annoyance of unkempt pavement. The 3.5-liter V-6 engine pairs well with the six-speed automatic transmission that feels nicely attuned to the engine’s powerband. The result is a consistent and uninterrupted luxurious ride.
