2017 Acura RDX AWD Advance – Finest Design
Front seats in the 2017 Acura RDX AWD Advance have rich supports and are eight-path movable for the driver. The guiding section tilts and telescopes to acclimate to different size drivers, and there’s a lot of space for the huge and tall.
The constraining component for the RDX is its minimal auto impression and maybe most suitable, its smaller auto width. We’ve discovered taller travelers don’t exactly have enough knee or head space to be agreeable for long separations in the back of the RDX, however, normal size young people and kids ought to be fine. If you require space for five grown-ups every now and then, which implies wedging three over the back seat situate, the bigger MDX may be a superior pick.
The 2017 Acura RDX AWD Advance comes loaded with power features; dual-zone climate control; cruise control; keyless ignition; ambient lighting; a seven-speaker sound system with USB/MP3 support; and Bluetooth hands-free calling.
The Technology Package includes blind-spot monitors; HD Radio; a multi-rearview camera; and a dual-screen infotainment display. We commend Acura for giving this system real buttons for volume and for switching the system on and off, a vastly superior setup to the sliders and on-screen controls found on some Honda models.
The 2017 Acura RDX AWD Advance comes standard with non-freezing stopping devices, solidness and footing control, front side airbags, side blind airbags, dynamic front head restrictions and a rearview camera.
Discretionary dynamic security gear incorporates forward impact cautioning, forward crash moderation with programmed braking, a blind-side screen, path takeoff cautioning and lane-departure intervention. Though these systems on the paper sound similar to those offered by rivals, in practice we found them to set off the collision alarm in instances when a collision is clearly not imminent. Its adaptive cruise control system is also too quick to slam on the brakes and too slow to get back up to speed.
