    2016 Acura RDX OVERVIEW

    The 2016 Acura RDX enters the competitive compact premium crossover segment doing what Acura is known for: packing a lot of features in a practical package. The RDX majors on providing a functional space for five passengers and versatility many seek in a crossover, while adding technology at a reasonable price.

    What's New for 2016

    For 2016, the RDX gets styling and equipment changes, as well as a new 3.5-liter V6 with six more horsepower and improved fuel economy. The front end now features the "Jewel Eye" LED headlamps similar to other Acura models, and there's a new interface for the audio controls. The new AcuraWatch suite of safety technologies is available on all models, and includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and forward collision warning. Finally, a new top-trim Advance joins the lineup.

    Choosing Your Acura RDX

    The RDX's sole engine is a 3.5-liter V6 with 279 horsepower mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available at all three trim levels:


    It may be the entry-level model, but the Base comes with most of the features a luxury buyer wants. Standard equipment includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, a 10-way power driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power liftgate, a backup camera and a 7-speaker audio system with Pandora integration and Bluetooth HandsFree link. Like parent company Honda, Acura doesn't typically offer standalone options, though all-wheel drive is optional.

    RDX with AcuraWatch Plus adds the suite of advanced safety technology comprised of the following: adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, collision-mitigating braking, lane departure warning and lane keep assist.


    Technology models add navigation with AcuraLink and real-time traffic, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, as well as 10-speaker ELS audio with HD radio and support for apps such as Aha. It also bundles in sport front seats with an 8-way power front passenger's seat.

    Models with AcuraWatch Plus add the same advanced safety tech as on the Base model.


    The range-topping Advance is new this year and adds makes standard AcuraWatch Plus features, along with unique 18-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers, front and rear parking sensors, auto-dimming side mirrors, ventilated front seats and remote engine start. Aside from all-wheel drive, there are no options.

    CarsDirect Tip

    While it may not be the most luxurious or prestigious contender in the segment, the RDX is certainly a strong value. Despite some desirable features such as automatic wipers and parking sensors, the Advance isn't the best pick. We think the mid-range Technology with AcuraWatch Plus better serves buyers who want to get all of the comfort and safety features they want from a $40,000 premium crossover.
