Acura has developed a loyal following with its RDX crossover, and for 2011, the model should give the loyalists more of what they crave. The RDX is available as either a front-wheel- or all-wheel-drive model. Both come powered by a 2.3L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which produces 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, thanks to Acura's famed i-VTEC variable valve timing. Power is put to the wheels through a 5-speed automatic with Sequential SportShift steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Acura's optional Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system controls the distribution of power to all four wheels individually, which allows for precise handling even at high speeds, thanks to yaw control and electronic stability control.
