The 2013 Acura RDX Redefines the Family Vehicle

March 19th, 2013 by

Wherever you go in life, there’s an Acura to take you there. Family vehicles are so often bulky and utilitarian, but the 2013 Acura RDX offers something different. With distinctive styling, a spacious interior, and the kind of power you expect from a luxury crossover, the RDX sets a new standard for what a family vehicle can be. Top-of-the-line safety features, Bluetooth audio, and navigation capability elevate this capable, spacious crossover to the realm of maximum convenience, comfort, and peace of mind.

Comfort for the Whole Family

With the new Acura RDX, your entire family will be able to enjoy the comfort of a luxury car. The leather trim and breathable perforated leather on each of the RDX’s five seats makes every ride an enjoyable one for driver and passengers alike. The driver’s seat features 10-way power adjustment, power lumbar support, and two memory settings, while the front passenger seat features 4-way power adjustment — and both front seats feature dual-level heaters to keep you warm on chilly days.

There’s plenty of comfort to be had in the back seats as well, with plenty of leg room and a center armrest with two built-in cup holders. Even with all that passenger space, the RDX doesn’t skimp on cargo room: it offers 26.1 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats, and 76.9 cubic feet with the seats folded down.

Top-of-the-Line Safety

When you’ve got a crossover with luxury power and room for the whole family, you want great safety features as well – and the Acura RDX doesn’t disappoint:

  • A state-of-the-art six-airbag system with two-stage, multiple-threshold inflators. It includes two front and two front side airbags, and two side curtain airbags for the front and outboard rear seats.
  • An Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) that determines the height and position of the passenger in order to more safely deploy airbags for children and small adults.
  • The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system utilizes an array of sensors in conjunction with the anti-lock brake system in order to minimize the hazards of oversteer and understeer conditions.
  • The RDX’s Body Structure Design distributes energy more evenly in case of a collision, helping to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment.

Features like these are what make the new 2013 Acura RDX not only a great luxury crossover, but a refined, dependable choice for families. Visit Arlington Acura in Palatine to take a test drive today!
