(from Acura Press Release) Equipped to meet the demanding lifestyle
needs of active urbanites, the RD-X features high-tech functionality,
including a unique 2+2 configuration, which can comfortably seat four
or, with the rear seats folded away, provide abundant room for bicycles,
snowboards and other weekend getaway essentials.
An advanced all-wheel drive powertrain
combines a high-performance i-VTEC engine with a new, state-of-the-art
Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system to provide outstanding acceleration
and confident all-weather handling.
Inside, the RD-X's race car-inspired
interior boasts an array of functional innovations including an
adjustable instrument panel and fold-away rear seats that angle outward
for increased legroom. A wide-mouth rear opening features innovative
doors that open by sliding out and to the side for easy access in tight,
urban quarters. The rear cargo area incorporates a hidden compartment to
securely stow computers, briefcases and other valuables.
The RD-X is designed to provide both
excellent visibility for driving in traffic, and a feeling of security
when parked on urban streets. Exterior styling highlights include an
aggressively raked belt line, a glass roof for maximum visibility, and a
unique rear roof panel that opens to allow tall items to be easily
transported. Oversized, run flat tires, ample ground clearance and
retractable headlights supply the toughness to handle the hazards of
urban living or weekend adventures.
