Acura RDX - A Brief History:

The Acura RDX is Acura’s first compact crossover SUV, taking over from the MDX as Acura's entry-level crossover SUV. Knowing that many SUV buyers would rather have sporty, on-road dynamics than off-road prowess, the RDX blends sport sedan-like handling with the typical SUV traits of all-wheel drive and enhanced cargo capacity.

Acura SH-AWD & Turbo System

Acura SH-AWD Car Repair

With its turbocharged engine and "Super Handling" all-wheel-drive system, the Acura RDX promises -- and delivers -- a fun time for driving enthusiasts. It is one of the most entertaining crossovers to drive, thanks to its peppy acceleration and agile handling. It is also one of the only four-cylinder powered luxury SUVs. Driving style and the terrain plays an important part in this Vehicle's fuel economy. Uphill driving, frequent lane changes and sudden accelerations can increase turbo usage to increase torque output to the SH-AWD (Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive) system and thus cause much higher fuel consumption.
