Acura has recently presented the 2013 RDX Prototype at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show, which has been scheduled to hit the market in just a few months.

Together with the ILX Concept presented earlier, the Japanese based automaker Acura has also presented to the public the 2013 RDX Prototype, at the same 2012 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. According to the car manufacturer, the 2013 RDX crossover will be officially launched into the market in just a few months, and the prototype presented at the over-seas automotive event will be the basis of the full production version.

The 2013 Acura RDX Prototype is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine which is developing a total output of 273 horsepower, a 33 HP increase compared to the previous model. The unit is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission which is sending power to a lighter all-wheel drive system, resulting a fuel economy rating of 20 / 28 mpg in city / highway (US). As you can see from the images posted below, the exterior design is quite aerodynamic and sportier and the model is larger in size compared to its predecessor.

The 2013 Acura RDX’s interior has also been modified, along with the engine and exterior design, and the cabin has now been fitted with higher quality materials, together with the Pandora internet radio, SMS text messaging, advanced navigation system with voice recognition, the AcuraLink Satellite Communication System, real-time weather reports and many other interesting featurs.
