In the extremely competitive world of compact luxury SUVs, the Acura RDX continues to perform well as evidenced by its sales numbers. Blessed with a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, it delivers a healthy 272 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, which are then transferred to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission and Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. A sleek A-Spec package adds a dynamic touch to the RDX.
