Derived from the previous-generation Honda CR-V, the RDX has a more premium feel to compete among compact luxury SUVs. The very smooth and refined V6 gets 22 mpg overall, which is on par with the turbocharged four-cylinder engines found in competing SUVs. Handling is not especially agile, and the ride is a little stiff. We also found that the front wheels can easily spin on wet pavement before the AWD system transfers power to the rear wheels. Despite recent updates, the interior is rather forgettable for an upscale SUV, lacking certain luxury features usually found on competitors. Acura's convoluted dual-screen control system is unintuitive to use. Still, the seats are comfortable and the rear seat is roomy. The AcuraWatch safety package is available on all trims.
