Turbocharged Crossover is top pick of auto writers



The RDX initially won the Best New CUV Between $35,000 and $60,000 category in order to be voted on for the overall 2007 AJAC Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year.


Acura’s all-new RDX Tech­nology Package, a luxury-performance crossover utility vehicle (CUV), has been voted Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC).


The RDX Technology Package combines Acura’s first-ever turbocharged engine with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system for responsiveness, control and efficiency.

By adding an innovative variable flow turbocharger — an exceptionally broad powerband with 240 horsepower — virtually no turbo lag is produced while achieving outstanding fuel efficiency with low emissions.

The transformable utility of the RDX, along with its engaging performance and handling, provides an ideal balance.

Inside is a full complement of standard passive safety features.

Key technologies include active front seat head restraints and the latest generation of dual-stage, dual-threshold airbags for the driver and front passenger, plus side airbags for the driver and front passenger, and side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor for all outboard occupants.
