Honda Motor's performance-oriented SUV goes on sale today in dealerships across the U.S., with an MSRP of $32,995.

To refresh your memory, the RDX sports a turbocharged and intercooled 2.3-liter 16 valve four-cylinder engine pumping out 240 hp. The RDX also boasts Acura's patented Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. You can check out our earlier post on the RDX to learn how an American contributed to the development of the CUV's turbos.

The fully-equipped RDX comes standard with a dual-zone automatic climate control system, a 360-watt, 7-speaker premium sound system with a multi-format 6-disc changer, XM Satellite Radio, an MP3/auxiliary input jack, and a full complement of air bag protection.

The only option for the RDX is the $3,500 "Technology Package," which adds a 10-speaker, 410 watt sound system, a voice-controlled nav system, a hands-free cell phone interface, a rearview camera and the Acuralink Satellite Communication System with real-time traffic info.
