In tough economic times, choosing the right vehicle has never been more important. Blending a smart balance of sport and utility, the 2011 Acura RDX offers a "right sized" package matched with a turbocharged powertrain and the available sure-footedness of Acura's acclaimed Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ - all wrapped in supple luxury.
The evolution of the luxury performance SUV took a significant leap forward with the arrival of the Acura RDX turbocharged crossover vehicle. The quick response of power from Acura's first-ever turbocharged engine along with the breakthrough technology of SH-AWD™ combine to deliver adrenaline pumping performance in an efficient SUV package.
"The RDX has always offered a unique mix of great performance, good utility, lots owner relevant technology and sharp looks," said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. "The availability of a 2WD model with improved fuel economy and a lower price also makes the 2011 RDX an exceptionally smart choice."
The RDX continues to be the compact luxury SUV of choice for drivers with energetic lifestyles who need a responsive and sporty vehicle with plenty of utility and leading edge styling. With two models available in two trim choices, the 2011 RDX offers something for everyone.

Both models come standard with a wide array of features and available is the Technology Package.
Externally, the 2011 RDX has an aggressive, sporty appearance thanks to bold front and rear fascias, Acura's signature grille, pronounced wheel arches, 18-inch 10-spoke aluminum wheels and upscale trim accents.
