The 2009 Acura RDX has enough features to please most technology snobs—along with an extensive list of standard equipment that goes beyond what’s offered by many competing models.
Edmunds starts the compliments by saying, "standard equipment is generous and includes 18-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights, a moonroof, full power accessories, heated front seats, a power driver seat with memory, Bluetooth connectivity, leather upholstery and dual-zone automatic climate control." New for 2009 is a power passenger seat.
At Acura, 2009’s RDX has only one optional package available—the Technology Package—but according to the reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, it's a doozy. According to Kelley Blue Book, it includes "a navigation system with voice recognition and real-time traffic information, GPS-linked solar-sensing climate control and a 410-watt, ten-speaker audio system that features XM Satellite Radio and a six-disc CD/DVD-Audio player with MP3/WMA capability plus DTS and Dolby Pro Logic II processing."
There’s also good news for audiophiles in the 2009 Acura RDX. A high-end " 360-watt sound system featuring an in-dash six-disc CD/MP3/WMA player, XM Satellite Radio, Bluetooth hands-free integration, seven speakers and an auxiliary input for portable MP3 players" comes standard.
