With the 2013 redesign, the second-generation RDX became a much more mainstream and refined compact crossover SUV. The turbo four is replaced by a V6 engine, which improves refinement, acceleration and fuel economy. Ride comfort is improved over the previous model, but the handling lost most of its sporty feel. While the RDX was competent all around and well equipped for the money, earlier models lacked some upscale luxury features. A 2016 update added more features, as well as the availability of optional advanced safety equipment. Called AcuraWatch, this safety suite includes forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking.
