The previous Acura models have sold well in the market. Acuras are after all a quality luxury crossover car that may be small in size but it is big otherwise. The 2016 Acura RDX is no different but it will get a minor facelift that includes an improved engine as well as new styling. All of this will make this car a good option for those who like luxurious crossover cars. The interiors are also very impressive.
The 2016 Acura RDX will make use of an identical platform that is already being used on the CR-V. However, the new RDX will have a brand new suspension, which enables the vehicle to absorb the vibrations in a more effective manner. This new suspension will keep your RDX firmly on the road thanks to its active shock absorbers and a computerized system that controls the suspension.
