Slightly more expensive than our other mountain cars, the Acura RDX has been fully redesigned with a new look, new engine, roomier interior, increased fuel economy and revised all-wheel-drive.

Performance: The RDX comes with a 3.5-liter 273-horsepower V-6 engine and antilock brakes. It's available in front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive models.

Safety: Safety features include an antilock braking system, child-seat anchors, and driver and passenger head restraints.

Cargo capacity: The roomy cabin allows for the seating of five adults. Storage available behind the rear seats measures 26.1 cubic feet. With rear seats folded down, the RDX gives you 76.9 cubic feet of space.

Features: The front seats have dual-level heaters. You can add a voice-activated navigation system and a power tailgate. Press a button on your key fob, and the tailgate opens automatically. When you're finished loading your ski equipment, press the button again, and the tailgate lowers and latches.
