2017 Acura RDX Performance
If you’re looking for the perfect luxury SUV crossover for you and your family, then the 2017 Acura RDX is your choice. This powerful and sleek vehicle has the power you want with the control you need, and you can get it today at Harmony Acura.
The 2017 Acura RDX features a powerful 3.5L V6 engine. It uses intelligent variable timing and lift electronic control, or i-VTEC, to provide better fuel efficiency without reducing performance. Variable Cylinder Management means you’ll get the speed you need without overuse of fuel. Multi-point programmed fuel injection means precision power and a steady ride, while the drive-by-wire throttle system means smooth delivery of power no matter whether you’re cruising or revving up. This engine produces an incredible 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque, and gets an impressive 8.7L/100 km highway.
The RDX comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission that’s made to handle the power and spirited ride of your car. Sequential SportShift paddle shifters are intuitively placed behind the steering wheel for a race-inspired touch that lets you shift smoothly and quickly with the touch of a finger. Grade Logic Control makes the transmission hold a lower gear when you’re going up or down a steep slope, making your ride more responsive and helping to save fuel. Hill Start Assist helps to anchor your car when you’re starting on something steep, preventing it from rolling backwards and giving you the extra juice you need to climb.
Handling and Suspension
The RDX might be a luxury sedan, but it handles like a high-performance sports car. It’s all thanks to the fully independent front and rear suspension, which connect you to the road while cushioning you from bumps and jolts; this means great handling with a responsive and rigid feel that’s tuned for agility and security. Amplitude Reactive Dampers read the conditions of the road and your driving style, adjusting throttle input, torque, and power to work with the surface of the road.
The RDX comes with an All-Wheel Drive system that boasts intelligent control. The All-Wheel Drive system uses a torque split system that delivers up to 40% of the available torque to the rear, giving the RDX a sporty feel for a thrilling driving. Whether you’re driving through rain or snow, or just taking a tight corner, the AWD with intelligent control keeps you steady with an intuitive response on pavement or any other surface.
The sleek design of the 2017 Acura RDX isn’t just an aesthetic choice that makes it one of the most commanding, attractive cars on the road. The lines and curves of the RDX carve the air around it into aerodynamic shapes, reducing lift and drag and improving downforce. You’ll slip through the wind with the greatest of ease when you ride in a 2017 Acura RDX!
