The new vehicle comes with some great new features and upgrades and promises to be one of the more efficient ones and pretty useful for family trips and excursions.

The characteristic of the 2015 Acura RDX is that it excludes the off road features that the cars in its class have. It is because it does not need them actually as it completely concentrates on enhancing the comfort for the driver and the passengers and enabling a much more steady and overall better ride.

As you can see from the provided pictures the car is a pretty solid and attractive one. the 2015 Acura RDX does not look to dazzle you with its looks but actually win you over with its utility and usefulness and high comfort levels. This does not necessarily mean that the design of the car is a bad one. Read on the review to see the full characteristics of the vehicle.
2015 Acura RDX exterior
The exterior of the 2015 Acura RDX is more toned down than the previous one. It former model was a bit flashy and aggressive which did not suit the car at all. The look did not go with the model at all and the effect on the popularity of the car was the direct result of that.
The vehicle did not do so good, but the new design looks better than ever, particularly because it is far less extrovert than the previous one and also a bit deceivingly looking compared with the vehicle’s performance.
The shape of the car is smooth and bold looking and the design is pretty great right now. A more unique feature are the protruded fender arches that are seen on the sides of the car.
The overall enhancements actually make the profile of the car far more attractive than it was. It is very appealing and very appropriately looking. There is absolutely no doubt that this car will overreach the popularity of the previous model and the exterior design is just the start.
The inside actually incorporates the standard Acura look and features. The interior of the 2015 Acura RDX actually looks great and the only thing that we can exclude as not that much appealing are the bright finishes which are applied.
But nevertheless, the vehicle has a new central pod for dash controls and includes some very nice and soft materials inside it. The car is pretty useful as we already said for family drives and will be as comfortable for any kind of a drive that you use it for.
The inside of the car brings a lot of space, both for the passengers and the cargo hold. You might say that the interior has been made to be quite space-efficient. This is due to a low cargo floor which has been included and the combination with the perfectly balanced and designed front and back seats.
The front seats are one of the best part for the interior, as they will enable the driver a lot of versatility. Firstly they allow ample space, suitable for people of different heights, and also the seats are adjustable in eight-ways, enabling you more comfort and more options than before.
The cargo also provides enough space with its 26.1 cubic feet behind the back seats and 61.3 cubic feet when the seats are folded, or actually 76.9 cubic feet if we include the under floor storage. As you can see you can take your family for a nice comfortable trip and pack all the stuff you need for a very nice and suitable picnic, for instance.
Under the hood of the 2015 Acura RDX you will find a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, which has been included in favor of downsizing and turbocharging. Although and odd choice, perceived by some people, the vehicle’s performance is upgraded by 28 hp compared to the previous model and also includes now a front-wheel drive into its mix.
Many people who have already conducted tryouts say that this is actually a perfect mix for the vehicle, meaning that it actually produces and enables a smooth ride in all terrains. You do not need to perform too much gear shifting and stop-and-go maneuvers in different terrains as the car feels and handles really great.
