When looking for a large crossover, you should pay attention to the proposal of the Japanese car industry, which was updated Acura RDX 2018. The new version of the car was an excellent story recently in the form of a concept, but it is assumed that this is the kind of crossover to go on sale. The brand in question enjoys relatively low popularity, the new car is made in a modern style and has all the technologies. Initially, the model will be shipped to the US at a cost of about $ 40,000.


The new crossover generation was very attractive. It is worth considering that the design was developed in America. The exterior has the following distinctive features:

The front part turned out to be massive, has a large falshradiatorny grating, which is edged with chrome.
When inspecting the car immediately you can pay attention to the head optics, which is created when using only LEDs.
The front bumper also has an intricate shape. He looks very attractive.
The body from the side looks laconic, a powerful splash can be noted above the front wheel arches. In addition, the dynamism and other qualities of the body are marked by powerful bursts of ribs.
Side doors were very massive, which is associated with large body dimensions. Also unusual is the way the rear pillar is framed.
The rear of the body was even more attractive. To begin with, we note modern lanterns, which are produced by the use of diodes. The tailgate itself has a pronounced groove, which is reserved for the license plate.

As previously noted, it is assumed that this is the final version of the design of the new crossover. It turned out to be very interesting and modern, as well as competitive.

In comparison with its predecessor, the salon was completely redesigned. At the same time, designers and engineers decided not to follow the general canons, but to create something really new. The result is the following interior:

Immediately strikes the central part of the console, as it is very unusual. An example is that the control joystick of some functions is angled and recessed into a panel with multiple keys. Due to this, the feeling of floating of this element is created.
Quite a lot of functions carry with it a multimedia system display. The screen itself is touch-sensitive, but if desired, you can control the basic functions with a mechanical joystick.
A very unusual solution is that the climate control unit is located high. It also has a small analog display for displaying the parameters to be set.
A lot of attention was paid to the key, which is responsible for connecting the all-wheel drive. It is allocated almost in the same way as a multifunction joystick.
The instrument panel is represented by several indicators, analogue scales, and also a color display capable of displaying very complex graphics. Note that the designers have tried to make the display as a background, that is, it does not highlight much. Today this method of design of the instrument panel is used by leading automakers.
The steering wheel is multi-functional, has a fairly large number of keys and scroll wheels, switches in the form of a toggle switch.

The tunnel, which separates the front seats, was taken for a fairly large box. In addition, the armrest is also made in the form of a box.
Seats have a complex design that provides maximum comfort when driving.
The back row was almost not paid attention. Of the comfort, it can be noted only that the unit has been withdrawn with deflectors for climate control to ensure a more efficient air supply.

In addition, in the top version of the cabin crossover should be skinned with Nappa leather, use natural veneer, aluminum and soft plastic with a pleasant texture when finished. Therefore, we can say that the salon corresponds to a very high class.

To begin with, we note that the car will be delivered with a full or only front-wheel drive. Therefore, attention should be paid to this point. To the specifics of technical characteristics we will refer the following moments:

While it is known that a gasoline engine with a turbine will be installed.
According to the automaker, a new 10-speed automatic box will be installed on the crossover, which will reduce fuel consumption by dividing the torque.
The brand-new all-wheel drive system will be installed with a differential that has been substantially redesigned. Due to its modification on the chassis, 150% of the torque will be transmitted more than the previous version of the car.
For a surcharge it will be possible to install shock absorbers, which can work in 4 basic modes.

The above information indicates that the crossover will be supplied with only one motor. This point can be called a significant disadvantage of the proposal. Of course, after the start of sales can significantly expand the range of installed motors.

The new Akura RDH 2018 should become a vivid representative of the class of full-size crossovers. At the same time, designers and engineers have tried to provide their buyer with a new car, which differs from the previous generation as much as possible. Among the available options, note:

Multifunctional sports wheel. Engineers have tried to transfer most of the control keys to the steering wheel, which allows the driver to control many functions without taking his hands off. Due to this, the comfort and safety of movement is significantly improved.
In the central part of the console will be installed a floating display of a multimedia system measuring 10.2 inches. Note that it is sensory despite the large number of control units located below.
For a significant increase in comfort in the cabin installed audio system with a capacity of 710 watts. It was developed by Panasonic, it provides the presence of the effect of three-dimensional sound.
For security meets a set of various systems, which received the name AcuraWatch. It allows you to comfortably operate the car in almost any weather conditions.

In the top equipment, the car will also have a panoramic roof with a hatch, which also provides comfort.
The installed multimedia system will have a fairly large set of functions: from Wi-FI to the system for wireless synchronization of mobile devices.
To improve safety, they will also install an all-round vision system, parking sensors in the front and rear, as well as many other systems to inform the driver about the existing situation around the car.

It’s easy to guess that in a similar configuration Acura RDX 2018 model year, a photo of which is presented in this material, will cost as a presentable sedan.

On sale you can find just a huge number of large crossover presentable class. This is due to the fact that today not many well-off customers pay attention to business sedans due to low patency and small practically. With abundant precipitation, it is the crossover that will make you feel comfortable on the road. In addition, many have to taste a high landing. Acura’s competitors are:

Audi Q7.
Land Rover Discovery.
Lexus RX.
Mercedes GLE.
Porsche Cayenne.

In this class, serious competitors can be called representatives of the German car industry. This is due to the fact that they are some kind of sales leaders due to the popularity of the brand and the formed opinion about the consistency, for example, of the owner of the BMW X6. However, the Japanese automaker to produce a good car, which in top-end equipment should be much cheaper.
