Acura RDX

Acura RDX 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 4-door SUV AWD Automatic
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
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.

2013 Redesign Year
Acura RDX 2017 Trim Shown: 2017 FWD Tech & Acura Watch
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.

2007 Redesign Year
Acura RDX 2012
Derived from the Honda CR-V, the RDX bowed in 2007 as a small, all-wheel-drive upscale SUV. The 240-hp, 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder has good midrange power, but is relatively thirsty and requires premium fuel. This engine also lacks the refinement of a V6. Drivers have plenty of room and a rearview camera is offered with the navigation system. Low step-in height and large doors make for easy access into the well-finished cabin. The rear seat accommodates three adults and the floor is flat, enhancing foot space. Handling is relatively agile for an SUV, but the ride is a little stiff and road noise is pronounced. Stability control is standard. There are lots of electronic bells and whistles, but the navigation system's dashboard controller is awkward to use.
