2010 Acura RDX photos appear online

You'll recall that details about the 2010 Acura RDX have been trickling in for some time now. You can read up on previous posts about the 2010 Acura RDX by clicking here and the initial 2010 Acura RDX leak here.

A gallery of 2010 Acura RDX images is located in this slideshow.

The big news, besides the visual tweaks, is that you can now buy a front wheel drive version of the RDX. Previously you had to pony up for SH-AWD, but the extra cost and weight were a turnoff for some buyers.

A check on Honda's media site does not yield any 2010 RDX photos, but a quick set of screen captures by Autoblog yielded a nice treasure chest of images.

The shield grille actually looks decent on the RDX whereas the TL looks like a disaster. Hopefully the TL will get a re-worked schnoz pronto!

This author appreciates Acura's generous equipment levels, but is underwhelmed with the mileage that the RDX achieves. The FWD model scores 19/24 city/highway and the SH-AWD model achieves 17/22. Given the size of the vehicle and Honda's penchant for fuel thriftiness, it is a disappointment. A 240HP motor should provide better numbers. The Toyota V6 RAV4 AWD delivers 19/26 while serving up 269HP using regular grade fuel (the RDX wants premium).
