Sales of the turbocharged RDX crossover SUV were 1,708, up 216.9 percent compared to July 2009 sales, which helped push Acura total monthly sales to an increase of 44.7 percent based on daily selling rate*. With 13,017 units sold for July, overall Acura yearly sales have totaled 74,134— an increase of 24.1 percent.
"In an era when consumers are downsizing, the right-sized RDX crossover SUV is proving to be a popular choice," said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. "The RDX's redesign for 2010, combined with its strong turbocharged power, has really boosted sales of Acura's smallest SUV."
The newly redesigned MDX luxury SUV continues to be one of the most popular choices in its segment, as evidenced by a 63.4 percent increase in monthly sales. With 4,194 units sold, the MDX was again Acura's best selling model. Combined, Acura truck sales totaled 6,480 units, up 108.7 percent.
