2018 Acura RDX Review

$36,000 - $44,200
Price Range (MSRP)
The Acura RDX compact luxury crossover comes fitted with a 279 hp, 252 lb-ft 3.5-liter V6 engine, all-wheel drive is optional and a 6-speed automatic transmission is standard. Performance is strong although the RDX is more cruiser than racer and fuel economy trails most downsized turbocharged rivals. Quiet, comfortable and well-equipped the RDX can be optioned with advanced features such as adaptive cruise control, remote start and lane keep assist. It is pitched at a premium price point though so faces some stiff opposition.
