Acura SUV Reviews

Acura manages to capture the attention of SUV enthusiasts once again for 2013. Since the release of their first MDX in 2000, this is a line that consistently manages to produce vehicles that meet visionary desires and safety needs while providing exhilarating performance, and the new model year is no exception.

Acura takes extreme care to make vehicles that will turn heads on the road, and impress even the hardest critic with groundbreaking technologies. Just a few these include their Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ structural design, Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control™ and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™.

Environmental enthusiasts also appreciate Acura SUVs because this is a manufacturer that feels it is their responsibility to reduce the environmental impact of all their dealerships. They have won numerous awards due to their care and commitment to conserve. Striving to constantly create better vehicles and a better environment are two goals any SUV buyer can appreciate.

Acura offers three SUVs for 2013, with the first being their most established one; the well-known MDX. Sophisticated styling, a finely crafted interior and a relatively roomy third row seat are enough to lure most people in. Its 3.7-liter V6 provides great acceleration and super towing capabilities while its all-wheel drive offers control on the road.

This seven-seat mid-size luxury SUV scores perfect in crash tests, and has a long list of advanced safety features. There are plenty of options available for customization too, such as 19-inch wheels, multi-view parking camera, 10-speaker audio system, solar-sensing climate control, household power outlet and rear seat entertainment. The biggest competition of the Acura RDX is the Buick Enclave, Mercedes-Benz GL Class and BMW X5.

Next in the lineup is the 2013 Acura RDX. A thoughtful 3.5-liter V6 engine returns better fuel economy this year while still providing exceptionally quick acceleration. A fresh look on the outside is complemented by an interior upgrade that features a dual cockpit dash design, higher quality materials and user-friendly controls and options, including the navigation system, which should receive rave reviews.

The RDX offers five-passenger seating with an impressive amount of legroom and generous cargo room. There is a base trim and a base with Technology package; both offer an all-wheel drive option. The base is nicely loaded, but the Technology package adds a few desirable qualities, such as a power lift gate, the coveted navigation system with real time weather and traffic, power lift gate, solar-sensing climate control and a nice 10-speaker sound system that includes 15GB of music storage. BMW X3, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 and Cadillac SRX are main competitors to the RDX.

Last in the lineup is the futuristic ZDX. With its 300-horsepower engine, stunning good looks and fantastic handling, it is hard to understand why Acura will be discontinuing this vehicle after this model year. So, if you are a fan of its voluptuous exterior, responsive powertrain and plush front seats, you will want to dig deep into your pockets for the starting MSRP of $50,920 before it is gone! This crossover luxury coupe looks great from every angle with new front and rear bumpers, a redesigned front grille and dark accents on the wheels. Standard equipment includes a phenomenal 435-watt audio system with 15GB of music storage, navigation with voice recognition, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and a whole lot more. It technically competes with the Toyota Venza, Nissan Murano and Lexus RX 450h, but really, is there any comparison?
