Crowd Prefers Small, Refined, Sporty Cars
by Jennifer Dylan
The recent automotive reports reflect the shift
of auto enthusiasts to small, refined and sporty-looking cars. As
an aftermath of this striking shift, automakers are expanding their
offering of significantly compact luxury crossovers and SUVs.
One of the most visible small cars on the road is
BMW X3. The car is the little sibling of X5, a high-performance
mid-size vehicle. In fact, it uses some of the vital BMW
X5 auto parts to boost its performance. Since X3's launch in
the year 2004, BMW has sold a total of 83,500 units of said car.
The sales figures have triggered other automakers to come up with
their own version of the car.
One mighty rival of X3 is Acura RDX, a 5-passenger
crossover that has been made available since the mid part of August.
Acura RDX is also designed to respond to the driving needs of urbanites
as well as the suburbanites who prefer a more sporty and stylish
wagon with all-wheel drive. It is also designed for couples who
haul lifestyle equipment. With the busy and complicated city lifestyle,
Acura RDX can be an ideal companion.
RDX uses some of Acura
MDX auto parts. The latter is a bigger vehicle which will be
given a significant makeover this year. RDX, on one hand, will be
the first turbocharged Acura which will be offered in the United
States. It will be equipped with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder
engine which can generate more power than BMW X3. X3 is equipped
with a 3-liter, inline six-cylinder engine rated at 225 hp.
Acura RDX' engine produces a smooth but powerful
performance minus noticeable turbo lag. It delivers power to the
wheels by way of an exceptional all-wheel-drive system which can
be maneuvered to control the amount of torque and force depending
on the road condition.
Aside from BMW X3 and Acura RDX, mighty small cars
on the road include Infiniti FX35, Infiniti FX35 and Mazda CX-7.
They offer various functionalities and amenities for less.
