Continental Acura In Naperville, IL Looks At The Design Of Both Luxury Vehicles

Both vehicles are designed for luxury and share design cues from their sedan cousins. The RX 350 prescribes a traditional look with modern twists. Once inside, the RX feels a bit more simplistic than one would expect in a luxury crossover with basic steering wheel controls and a gear shift oddly positioned to stand in front of the climate controls when the vehicle is in park. The Acura RDX offers more of what might be anticipated in a luxury vehicle with easily accessible and intuitive controls. The infotainment system in the Acura RDX actually offers a 15GB hard drive capable of storing approximately 3,600 songs. The Acura RDX also offers a specially designed surround sound system developed with the help of Elliot Scheiner, a Grammy award-winning recording engineer and producer. Beyond the cutting edge technology, the Acura RDX also provides a noticeably better passenger volume and rear leg room. Take the short trip west from Downers Grove, IL and see first hand the remarkable Acura RDX.

Each vehicle comes with the same size V6 engine yet the Acura RDX is more powerful while also getting noticeably better gas mileage. The Acura also offers paddle shifters as standard equipment which are not available on the RX without upgrading to the far more expensive F Sport model. The engineers at Acura have gone to great lengths to develop a crossover that is enjoyable for both the driver and passenger with extensive ‘Thinsulate’ sound deadening material throughout the vehicle to reduce unpleasant road noise. The newly updated suspension in the RDX has been expertly designed to provide both solid handling while also being a smooth and comfortable ride.
