Acura RDX Overview

Derived from the Honda CR-V compact SUV, the RDX is a more upscale alternative. Styling, handling, and interior quality are nothing special, but the RDX is well-equipped for the price. The very smooth and capable V6 returned 22-mpg overall when we tested it in 2013. Handling is not especially agile, and the ride is a little stiff. The interior is rather plain-Jane for an upscale SUV, and it lacks some luxury features, such as a heated steering wheel, usually found on its competitors. Still, the seats are comfortable, the rear seat is roomy, and most controls are straightforward. The 2016 model freshening gained a few more horsepower, added new advanced safety features, and controls got more complicated.
