    1343152740

    The revised 2013 Acura RDX has found at least one happy customer, and it's an important one: Consumer Reports.

    The Softening Of A Sharp-Edged CUV If you had asked us back in 2006 if the then-brand-new Acura RDX would be a success, our answer would have been yes. And why not? The Acura brand was still in demand, buyers were increasingly clamoring for luxury crossovers and the economy appeared to be in solid shape. And don't forget that the RDX was seemingly ahead ...

    Video: Acura plays up 2013 RDX's right-sizing with Gulliver ad campaign
    1333665000

    The RDX is new for the 2013 model year, so it makes sense that Acura would jump start the vehicle's launch with a new ad campaign. Honda's luxury arm went with the "Gulliver's Travels" theme, which of course demonstrates that the refreshed crossover is big and luxurious, yet not too big. Get it? Gulliver is a giant and yet the RDX is big enough for him... ...

    Exclusive: Why did Honda kill its best performance engine?
    1328814180

    The performance profile of the turbo four may have doomed it to being merely a footnote in Honda's illustrious history. When the 2013 Acura RDX launches this spring, Honda will quietly close down a spur line of its Anna, OH, plant. Since 2006, it had been building the 2.3-litre four-cylinder engine used in the first-generation RDX there. These ...
