MARKHAM, ON (March 22, 2012) – Acura announced pricing today for the vehicle designed to once again change people’s perceptions of what a luxury SUV should be -- the all-new 2013 Acura RDX crossover SUV. Available in Acura dealerships across Canada on April 2, the 2013 RDX will start with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of just $40,990. The RDX Technology Package will come to market with an MSRP of $43,990.
“The 2013 Acura RDX is improved in just about every way and embodies much of Acura’s future direction -- beautiful timeless design, luxury detail and the technology that customers expect,” said Alexandre Roger, vice president of Acura Canada. “It’s more powerful, roomier, quieter and has improved fuel efficiency. In short, it’s everything we know customers in the luxury SUV market expect and more.”
