Acura RDX Overview

Derived from the Honda CR-V compact SUV, the RDX is a more upscale alternative that is well-equipped for the price. The very smooth and capable V6 is a bit more powerful for 2016, and will likely still return 22-mpg overall. Handling is not especially agile, and the ride is a little stiff. Despite updates for 2016, the interior is rather forgettable for an upscale SUV, lacking some luxury features usually found on its competitors. 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.
