The first vehicle in an expected busy year for the Acura luxury car line began production Monday.

Honda of America Manufacturing Inc. started work on the Acura RDX at its East Liberty plant Monday. The crossover sport-utility vehicle, which is entering its second generation with the 2013 model, will be in showrooms this spring.

The $34,320 starting sticker price is up about 4 percent from $32,895 the last model year. The RDX comes in four versions, with or without all-wheel drive and with or without a technology package that includes a navigation system with voice recognition, a 60-gigabyte hard disk drive and a GPS-linked solar-sensing, climate control system among other amenities.
According to information from Honda (NYSE:HMC), the exterior has been redesigned for a sleeker look, and the interior was changed to add utility, new materials and improve noise insulation.

The RDX rollout marks the second new launch for the East Liberty plant in the past three months. That facility also is cranking out the redesigned 2013 Honda CR-V.

Honda first showed off its new Acuras, including the concept NSX supercar and the entry-level ILX, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. The concept 2013 Honda Accord coupe, as well as the ILX and the 2012 RDX were among the vehicles on display in Columbus at this past weekend’s 2012 Columbus International Auto Show.
