Compact luxury crossovers are popping onto the radar faster than we can count them, but the RDX is one that's been with us for several years. Its standard V6 power and abundant features for the money have made it a perennial favorite of buyers shopping in this league.

What's New for 2017

The RDX receives an attractive facelift, snazzier interior trim, and more standard equipment this year. Advanced safety technology is available for the first time, including adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist.

Choosing Your Acura RDX

While most vehicles in this segment carry a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the RDX gets its go from a 3.5-liter V6 with 279 horsepower. Even with the larger-than-average engine, the RDX manages a fine 23 mpg in combined city and highway driving. A six-speed automatic transmission is used on all models, and all-wheel drive is available in place of the stand front-drive setup. Every RDX rolls on 18-inch wheels.

With the rear seat in use, the RDX can handle 26.1 cubic feet of cargo. Flip it down and you're looking at 61.3 cubic feet, which is what we would expect from a luxury crossover of this size.

The RDX comes in a single trim level with a wealth of standard features, including a sunroof, a power liftgate, heated power front seat (leatherette), LED exterior lighting, a rearview camera, and a seven-speaker sound system with satellite radio. To all of this you can add one of three progressive option packages:

AcuraWatch Plus

Adds in a bundle of safety technology: adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and front collision mitigation with automatic braking.


Gets the AcuraWatch Plus features, plus leather upholstery, front sport seats, navigation, a suite of integrated smartphone apps, and a 10-speaker Acura/ELS surround-sound system with HD radio.


Tops of the RDX with ventilated front seats, remote start, automatic wipers, auto-dimming side mirrors, foglamps, and front and rear parking sensors.

CarsDirect Tip

For all its sophistication, AcuraWatch Plus adds only $1,300 to the MSRP. Even so, we recommend combining it with the Technology or Advance package to get the genuine leather seats and upgraded electronics.
