, Automotive Editor -

An all-new second-generation RDX from Acura debuted last year. For 2014, the RDX continues to offer the strong—yet fuel-efficient—V6 along with an extensive list of standard equipment that makes this vehicle a serious player in the small luxury crossover segment.

What's New for 2014

After last year’s complete new model, the 2014 RDX has only minor color and trim changes.

Choosing Your Acura RDX

The 3.5-liter V6 is the first six-cylinder offered in an RDX. The naturally aspirated engine boasts another first for Acura: variable cylinder management. The purpose of this system is to save fuel by deactivating cylinders when they're not needed. The engine has 273 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway with front-wheel drive; expect 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway with all-wheel drive.

The RDX offers the longest list of standard equipment in the category. Key features consist of a multi-view backup camera, heated front seats with a 10-way power driver's seat, a 7-speaker audio system with a 5-inch LCD display, voice-activated text messaging (not compatible with iPhone) and Pandora Internet radio. And unlike its German-built rivals, the RDX includes keyless entry and push-button start as standard fare.

Optional features are grouped together in the $3,700 Technology Package. Highlights include a navigation system with traffic overlays, HID headlights, and one of best surround sound stereo systems in the industry, the Acura/ELS audio system designed by Grammy award engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner. Also included is the AcuraLink application hub with Zagat ratings, weather forecasts and dealer appointment reminders.

CarsDirect Tip

Unless you need the traction, there's really no reason to spend the extra money for an all-wheel drive model. And while you won't feel deprived if you opt for a model without the Technology Package, we recommend splurging—especially if you enjoy listening to music in your car.
