Acura RDXThu, 26 Jan 2012
The second-generation Acura RDX crossover has grown up both physically and metaphorically, with a sleeker and more elegant aesthetic than the model it replaces.
Gone is the previous model's upright stance, replaced by a more stretched, longer, lower profile. Its face houses swooping headlamps that pull back deep into the fenders. The shallow upper body and car-like lower are given an SUV twist by large fender flares and a higher than average ride height.
Inside, the RDX continues its new, curvaceous approach with the horizontal elements of the IP overlapped by a sweeping detail that flows into the door cards. The center stack houses a large infotainment screen, whilst the low central tunnel adds to the feeling of spaciousness. The RDX follows the lead of the ILX sedan in adopting a plethora of new technologies and sound-deadening materials to deliver a more luxurious feel to the cabin.
