2021 Acura RDX
The RDX may be a compact crossover, but there's ample power under the hood. There's only one engine choice in the lineup, but it's a meaty 2.0L turbo mill pushing out 272 horsepower and 280lb-ft of torque. The output is passed through a smooth ten-speed automatic transmission on its way to all-wheel drive, which is standard across the whole Canadian RDX range.
Also standard on every RDX is the advanced torque vectoring system, which intelligently distributes the power to each individual wheel to optimize grip and handling across the full spectrum of driving conditions.
The overall effect is a strong and assured driving feel with plenty of zip, whether you're cruising the highway or navigating city traffic in tightly weaving streets.
