The specs

The Southern Gazette - - Editorial -

to get to the right one, it does so di­rectly, from 10th to 7th, for ex­am­ple.

Han­dling is ex­em­plary for a tall ve­hi­cle, The body re­mains flat in cor­ners and should you chose to do so, you can tighten things up even fur­ther by se­lect­ing “sport +” mode. Another key player in the RDX’s ex­cep­tional driv­ing dy­nam­ics is Su­per Han­dling AWD.

This is more than a mar­ket­ing tool. The sys­tem uses torque-vec­tor­ing to over­drive the out­side wheels in a cor­ner. This helps push the ve­hi­cle around the turn. It can send up to 70 per cent of en­gine out­put to the rear wheels and 100 per cent of that to ei­ther side, if nec­es­sary. That could be much ap­pre­ci­ated in slip­pery win­ter con­di­tions. There’s a “snow” mode as well.

De­signed and engi­neered in the U.S., the 2019 RDX is avail­able in five trim lev­els span­ning the $44,000-$55,000 price range.

As ex­pected at each point along the trim walk, there are ad­di­tional fea­tures.

But all share the same driv­e­train and ex­cep­tional driv­ing dy­nam­ics.
