{CONTENT-TITLE}

Looking for a stylish, high-quality small SUV? Consider the 2018 Acura RDX, now in Richmond at Richmond Acura. Simply drop by our showroom to see it for yourself! Let us show you how driving a well-made and well-equipped vehicle is an experience itself.

Right from the first glance of the 2018 Acura RDX and its sleek body lines, you'll forget that this is a compact crossover. It just feels too luxurious to be so, and it is. Inside and out, driving the RDX is an exercise in pleasure.

Under its hood, the 2018 RDX packs a punch. Powered by a 3.5L V6 engine, it offers an exhilarating 279 hp. This baby is meant to be driven, not to simply haul groceries around town. The 6-speed automatic transmission that accompanies that engine even comes equipped with a set of paddle shifters to enhance the driving experience.

Riding high on its standard 18-inch wheels, the smartly engineered RDX is equipped with Amplitude Reactive Dampers, reading both driver input and road conditions to produce a most satisfactory ride on all road surfaces. A multi-link rear suspension offers exceptional handling and confident feel. AWD with Intelligent Control System enhances traction in unfavourable road conditions by directing torque to the rear wheels. Fuel economy is impressive thanks to its Variable Cylinder Management System, which shuts off some of the fuel cylinders when they are not needed in order to improve fuel economy.

Packed with premium interior finishes and ample room to stretch out in both rows, occupants will feel both restful and comfortable. Outside sounds are nearly eliminated thanks to noise-cancelling technology. Leather-trimmed, heated, 8-way power adjustable seats are available for both front occupants, not simply the driver. Taking passenger comfort to a whole new level, an available GPS-enabled climate control system senses changes to the direction and intensity of the sun and adjusts cabin temperature accordingly. Its rear seats split in a 60/40 configuration, or fold right down to create the most cargo space of any vehicle in its class. A powered tailgate with a high head clearance will get tasks completed more easily.

The new RDX is available in three trims, and even the base model is well equipped. An available Technology Package adds all of the creature comforts you could ever want in a vehicle.

On the safety front, the RDX is loaded with a full suite of radar-based, semi-autonomous safety features. You'll definitely feel safer knowing that your vehicle is equipped with goodies like Acura's Cross Traffic Monitor system, Blind Spot Information, Collision Mitigation Braking, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist, among many others.

Starting at a little over $42,000, this is no budget grocery-getter. Instead, the 2018 RDX is a stylish and well-made luxurious small crossover that can hold its own against most imports. Its generous space, refined interior and elevated design will make you rethink the compact crossover. Experience it for yourself at Richmond Acura today; we think you'll agree!
