2021 Acura RDX - Now in Moncton
Acura is widely known for adding an extra layer of luxury on top of the reliability and performance of high-end Honda engineering. The RDX is one of the more affordable SUVs in their range, but it certainly maintains the brand's high standards. We now have the 2021 RDX model available in our Moncton dealership, and here are the highlights you can expect from this premium car.
What's New for 2021?
The only difference for the 2021 RDX over the previous year is the launch of an exclusive hand-built PMC edition, loaded with performance extras and luxuries. Unfortunately, the limited production run has already sold out, with no more planned at the time of writing.
Every 2021 RDX is supplied with a peppy 2.0L 4-cylinder engine putting out 272 horsepower and 280lb-ft of torque, all piped through a ten-speed automatic transmission to either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The acceleration is smooth and responsive, and the torque vectoring system included in the all-wheel drive version makes for quick and reliable handling when cornering. Interestingly, you can choose to have the turbo roar passed through the in-cabin audio system, giving a novel full-blooded driving experience.
Interior Tech and Infotainment
The luxurious class of the RDX shows through in its interior tech levels. Every trim is supplied with the same large 10.2" touchscreen positioned high up on the dashboard, with most controls and options also operable by a centre-console touchpad. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Wi-Fi hotspot are all supported as standard, while advanced navigation, extra USB ports, and an upgraded 12-speaker audio system are added by the optional Technology package.
Advanced Safety Features
The 2021 Acura RDX earned top marks in crash tests by the NHTSA, while the near-identical 2020 version was also awarded a Top Pick Safety+ rating by the IIHS. Beyond the physical safety design, there's also a comprehensive suite of active driver-assist functions included on every model, with the key systems including:
- Forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking.
- Lane departure warnings and keep assist.
- Adaptive cruise control.
Move up the trims or add the optional Technology package and you'll also receive front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, and more.
