For families, a luxury SUV is the perfect method of transportation. These vehicles are designed to allow multiple people to travel comfortably and often include convenience and entertainment features that will make transportation more enjoyable. The new 2014 Acura RDX base model is a great family vehicle because of its excellent interior, safety features, and high level of performance.
The new RDX has an interior that passengers of all ages will love. The perforated, leather-trimmed seats will provide comfort even on long trips, and the heated front seats will help the driver and passenger stay comfortable during the winter. With a 60/40 split rear that is easy to fold up and down, the seating configuration on the 2014 RDX can be changed if you are bringing cargo like camping gear or sporting equipment.
To keep everyone entertained, the interior of the 2014 RDX also features compatibility with Pandora and SiriusXM Satellite Radio and a USB interface that can be used with iPods. Kids will enjoy hearing their favorite songs over Acura’s premium seven-speaker sound system, or for a truly high end audio experience you can upgrade to the Technology Package and get the Acura/ELS Surround Premium Audio System that includes ten speakers and HDD media storage. The 2014 Acura RDX base also includes SMS text capabilities and keyless access with push to start ignition, meaning parents will have an easy time getting the car started and communicating with friends and other family members while driving.
Anyone that is transporting their family will want to make sure that their ride is safe. The 2014 Acura RDX includes several features that will put your mind at ease when you are riding with children of any age. Acura’s six airbag system includes two airbags in the front of the vehicle and two on the side as well as two side curtain airbags. The two front airbags have multiple-threshold inflators that use various inflation rates depending on the severity of the impact and whether or not the passenger is using their seat belt.
For child safety, the RDX includes an Occupant Position Detection System that senses if a child or adult with a smaller stature is in the path of deployment for the side airbag. When this occurs, the airbag will be deactivated until the occupant goes back to a safer position. Acura’s unique LATCH, or Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children, system will allow compatible child seats to be installed without seat belts being used. Beyond these innovative safety inclusions, the 2014 RDX also offers standard options like vehicle stability assist, a tire pressure monitoring system, and a security system.
A family vehicle needs to perform dependably throughout a variety of different climates and conditions. Acura’s 2014 RDX comes with a 3.5 liter V6 engine that boasts 273 horsepower. To cut down your family’s gas expenditures, the new RDX gets 20 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 23 mpg combined. Acura’s electronic power steering will help you get the feel for the road that you need, and the floating sub-frame structure and thinsulate noise absorber will ensure that you have a very smooth and quiet ride no matter where you are.
