    Expert Rating

    3.5 (Good)
    20 City / 28 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2018 Acura RDX OVERVIEW

    The 2018 Acura RDX continues its fight in the mid-size luxury crossover segment, and while it's not be as fun to drive as the BMW X3 or as luxurious as the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, the RDX offers formidable technology (including an impressive safety suite), versatility, solid reliability, and a comfortable driving character.

    What's New for 2018

    Acura has made no changes to the RDX for 2018 model year. A redesign is expected in the next year or so.

    Choosing Your Acura RDX

    The RDX is only available with a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 279 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle-shifters. Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive is available for $1,500.

    With just its front-wheels spinning, the RDX scores an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon in the city, 28 on the highway, and 23 combined. Adding all-wheel drive drops the RDX to 19, 27, and 22 mpg, respectively.

    Acura offers its popular AcuraWatch Plus safety package as a $1,300 option on the base and Technology variants and as standard on the RDX Advance. The pack mirrors Honda Sensing, and includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist system, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

    Despite calling them "packages," it's best to think of the RDX as being available in three different trim levels, as the two main packages build on each other.


    The RDX starts at $36,775 (including $975 destination charges). Features include 18-inch wheels, a sunroof, Acura's super-bright JewelEye LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry with pushbutton start, faux leather upholstery, heated front seats, a rear-view camera, and ambient lighting. However, while the infotainment system supports Bluetooth connectivity, it misses out on Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration – we'd expect that as part of the RDX's next facelift.

    Technology Package

    The RDX Technology Package costs $40,475 and adds a high-tech climate control system, leather upholstery, and a dual-screen infotainment setup with navigation, real-time traffic alerts, voice commands, and a premium audio system. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert also arrives at this price point.

    Advance Package

    The RDX Advance Package, priced at $43,475, includes all the features of the lower trims plus foglights, front and rear parking sensors, auto-dimming side-view mirrors, remote engine start, heated and ventilated front seats and restyled wheels. And don't forget, the AcuraWatch driver assistance pack is standard on the range-topping RDX.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The best value is the RDX Technology Package with the AcuraWatch assistance kit. That said, the base trim offers good value for money as well. All-wheel drive, while not a deal-breaker, will come in handy in adverse weather conditions, and Acura's system is one of the best on the market.
