#PRODUCTWATCH: 2016 ACURA RDX
If performance and luxury are your thing, the 2016 ACURA RDX precisely is your car. The spacious and elegant vehicle is pure performance with its 3.5-litre i-VTEC®V6 engine and a remarkable 279 horsepower, putting you firmly in-charge of the road. We’ve driven several vehicles, but driving 2016 RDX feels completely effortless.
In addition to its sleek style, the RDX is focused greatly on safety. Its super-aware Lane Departure and Lane Keeping systems ensure you are focused entirely on the road 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), tire-pressure monitoring and front side airbags give us the piece of mind that this car truly has our back. A rear-view camera with its precise guiding make reversing and parallel parking a real breeze.
The seats were a decadent leather and we love that our Driver’s Seat not only was adjustable eight different ways, but also had a heated/cooling option – v. handy in this grueling summer heat! The car seats five very comfortably and those in the back also benefit from having their own vents. The trunk is large and we love that it both opens and closes with the press off a button on the keyless remote.
It’s all about the details for us and we cannot deny that the glorious Acura 360-watt Premium Sound System with SiriusXM gave us sheer joy, but more so, connecting to Spotify on our smartphone was a breeze and when we wanted to listen to our own music, we had that flexibility here. There were charging ports of multiple varieties and this also is extremely important for us.
While the moonroof can be fickle with some manufacturers, Acura makes it a breeze with its one-touch operation.
If the vehicle could be marked against on one thing and one thing only, it would be fuel efficiency, quickly guzzling through a tank at the cost of its high efficiency. Its fuel economy tallies in at 10.7 litres/100 km.
Driving the 2016 Acura RDX was more than an experience, it was enlightenment!
