In terms of luxury vehicles, the market has been dominated by German manufacturers over the past few years, but that doesn't mean the Japanese automakers aren't developing new products. Honda is hoping to grab a share of the luxury crossover market when it debuts the new Acura RDX next month.
According to Autoblog, production has started on the new car at the company's factory in East Liberty, Ohio. The new RDX will offer a 3.5-liter V6 that gets 273 horsepower and 28 miles per gallon on the highway, with a price tag of $34,420. Options include GPS navigation, voice controls, a 60GB hard drive and more.
"Acura is a brand for luxury customers who aspire to the highest levels of quality and value, and the East Liberty team is going to play a very important role for us as we move forward with production of this exceptional new Acura RDX," said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for Honda.
Luxury vehicles are especially important to keep in working order, as the car repairs on these vehicles can be expensive. Regular auto maintenance, such as tune-ups and oil changes, can help drivers ensure that their car is in top condition.
