Small luxury SUVs for less than
I’m looking for a smaller luxury SUV and I’ve been looking at a 2012 Acura RDX. I don’t like the looks of the newer one that came out in 2013 and the MDX is too big. What’s http://www.cheapjerseys11.com/ another reliable option? (with all wheel drive), I want to keep cheap jerseys it under $30,000. Also, any idea what all the letters stand for in these names?

Leather seats are nice and all, but sometimes the biggest creature comfort in a relatively pricey SUV is its ability to stay out of the shop.
Alternatives? The BMW X1, Audi Q5, Lexus RX350, Infiniti EX and Volvo XC60. Power list. The XC60 was at the bottom.
“The 2012 Mercedes Benz GLK350 is the second cheapest Mercedes you can buy in this country, and yet you’d never guess it by the way it looks, feels and drives,” Edmunds said. “Close the GLK’s doors and the metallic thump is reminiscent of closing a bank vault all that’s missing is that spinning wheel thing.”
But, with a smaller back seat and less cargo room than competitors like the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Volvo XC60, the compact GLK “may be a little too compact for some.”
Edmunds liked the solid feel, sophisticated ride, “impeccably crafted cabin” and ample safety features. Besides the tight space, Edmunds also griped about the small rear doors and “middling fuel economy.”
Consumer Reports said the wide doorsills impede access. And, while “the controls are better than in many Mercedes Benzes, some still aren’t exactly logical.”
Until 2013, a rear wheel drive version was also available. Adding options could get pricey.
The 2013 refresh added an optional diesel engine, a new front end and new dash the average used price for the 2013 gas version is $32,255. The BlueTec diesel is $35,418.
The 2012 GLK was part of the airbags, even though there have been no reported incidents in Canada.

In a pack of other luxury SUVs with alphabet based names, the 2012 RDX stood out because of its price tag.
“The Acura RDX’s price undercuts its similarly equipped rivals by thousands of dollars,” Edmunds said. “But when it comes down to it, the RDX isn’t the most appealing model out there in terms of high end luxury or safety features, competitors like the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Mercedes Benz GLK and Volvo XC60 outclass the RDX.”.
