Derived from the Honda CR-V compact SUV, the RDX is well-equipped for the price. The very smooth, capable, and sweet-sounding V6 packs some punch and returns 22 mpg overall. 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, which might be disconcerting on slippery surfaces. Despite some updates, the interior is rather forgettable for an upscale SUV, lacking some luxury features usually found on its competitors. Unfortunately, the freshening also brought Acura's convoluted dual-screen control system. Still, the seats are comfortable and the rear seat is roomy. The Acura Watch safety package is available on all trims.
