Just like it was the case with 2014th model the 2015 Acura RDX comes pretty much unchanged. Redesign was offered in 2013 and this means that we will be looking at quite similar vehicle few more years until a redesign is delivered.
Many car makers have noticed that the crossover luxury segment is one of the market parts that was not heavily affected by the crisis and that the sales in this segment continued to grow. As a result we were getting decent number of new models to this category but still the RDX remains one of the best offers on the market.
One of the problems with this model is the fact that it is offered with only one engine. It is a great 3.5 liter V6 unit that produces 273 hp and 251 pound feet of torque. There is no doubt that this is enough power for this small crossover but it would be nice to see more engines in the offer.
Power is transferred through a six speed automatic transmission to either front wheels or to all wheels. With this setup the 2015 Acura RDX is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in about 6.5 seconds which is a respective result. According to EPA front drive model will return 20/28/23 mpg in city/highway/combined drive cycle. For the AWD model we are getting slight drop and it offers 19/27/22 mpg rating.
2015 Acura RDX Release Date
As we said there will be no changes to this vehicle when it comes as a 2015 model. Release date has not yet been confirmed but we do expect to see this crossover available on the market from mid of the 2014th. In the next few months we do expect to receive more details about this and other important things related to this car.
Price has not been mentioned but this should not change either or we might be getting slight increase. Base model should stay under $ 35.000 just like previous model year and for better equipped models with added features price will go easily over $ 40.000.
Since this is a luxury crossover we need to talk little about the interior and features that it offers. This vehicle really is a nice place to be. It offers dual cockpit dash design while we are getting a lot of space inside and high quality materials. Seating position is good and we are getting enough space for all passengers. Trunk is spacious and most of the time its 26.1 cubic feet of storage will be enough and in case that this is not enough with simple rear seat fold it will expand to 61.3 cubic feet.
Changes For 2015 RDX
On the outside we have one quite aggressive model but we could hear from many that grille should be bigger. This is one of the segments where this model could be further improved and with these changes it certainly would offer even more aggressive look increasing its road presence.
It is needed for every car maker to offer at least few small changes for each and every new model and model year. Similar is for the 2015 Acura RDX where we will be getting only minor differences compared to previous year model. These changes will be mostly related to features and equipment that is delivered as a standard.
