Automotive Recognizes 2013 Acura RDX Amid Record Sales

All-New Crossover Named Site’s Featured Vehicle of the Month for July

07/11/2012 (press release: CambridgePRGroup) // Peabody, Mass. // Acura of Peabody

Fresh off of record June sales for its nameplate, the all-new 2013 Acura RDX has been singled out as’s Featured Vehicle of the Month for July. Citing traits that most likely appealed to many of the 3,090 U.S. consumers that bought an RDX last month, the auto-research site recognized the latest generation of the compact crossover for its sleek looks, advanced performance and fuel efficiency.

Sales of the Acura RDX were up an impressive 189 percent in June compared to the same month last year, and year-to-date the utility vehicle has moved 11,273 units, an increase of 59 percent year-over-year. The 2013 RDX went on sale in April, and it has since drawn attention from buyers and industry experts alike; the Acura crossover was recently named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as well.

“A crossover is supposed to be versatile by definition, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a competitor that offers a more complete package than the new RDX,” said Joel Avery, general manager of Acura of Peabody, an Acura dealer in Massachusetts. “The RDX was already a sought-after vehicle, but the 2013 model has a stronger, smoother and more fuel-efficient engine, added interior space and a stylish new interior design that has further enhanced its appeal to our customers.”

The 2013 Acura RDX features a new 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 273 horsepower while returning up to 28 mpg on the highway, an increase of 33 horsepower and four miles per gallon compared to the 2012 model’s smaller four-cylinder engine. That new powerplant is accompanied by a wider track, a longer wheelbase and a lower center of gravity to improve the RDX’s handling and ride.

Inside, all passengers of the new RDX get more legroom and shoulder room, while Acura’s Active Noise Control technology and standard leather seats make for a quiet, comfortable cabin. Cargo space has also increased to 76.9 cubic-feet, opening up about 16 more cubic-feet for storing gear or groceries.

Ensuring that every driver can stay connected during their commute, the 2013 Acura RDX comes standard with a five-inch color display for Bluetooth hands-free phone calls, Pandora internet radio and a SMS text message function that can read incoming texts to drivers and send pre-written responses. Meanwhile, an optional navigation system adds voice-recognition capabilities for audio, climate control and directions.

“The new RDX is just as much a fit for the daily commute into Boston as it is for trips to the White Mountains on weekends,” Avery noted. “It has the communications technology to make you more efficient during the work week, but it also has plenty of cargo space and capability for whatever getaway you might have planned come Friday evening.”
