Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Acura RDX

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - August 7, 2020
  • 2020 Acura RDX is on sale
  • Rebate: Up to $4,000 off
  • Lease: From $369/mo. for 36 mo.
  • Finance: 0.9% APR or cash

RDX is easy to find:

The 2020 Acura RDX is in stock now. While it is a carryover, it does get a new Platinum White paint option. The 2021 RDX is also available, and it's a carryover model too.

Leasing the RDX may seem attractive, but closer examination shows the larger MDX doesn't require much higher payments and offers tons more value.

The 2020 RDX's offers remain the same, but we could see some updates as Labor Day approaches.

All deals listed here are available nationally and run through September 8, 2020.

Loyalty cash remains:

If you own a 2010 or newer Acura, you can get a $3,000 loyalty bonus on the 2020 RDX.

Acura also offers a $1,000 conquest bonus on the 2020 RDX for owners of 2010 and newer luxury brands like Audi, BMW, and Lexus.

You can get the conquest and loyalty bonuses whether you're buying or leasing.

Also available this month is $1,000 in unadvertised dealer cash incentives. Keep in mind, though, the dealers can do as they please with this incentive. Some may even pocket it as profit. Because of this uncertainty, shop around to get the best offer.

By combining the loyalty bonus and dealer cash incentives, buyers can get up to $4,000 off the 2020 RDX.

Lease from $369/month:

Despite featuring up to $3,125 in lease cash, not every 2020 RDX lease is a good value.

The 2020 Acura RDX's best offer is for those who qualify for the conquest cash. With this discount in place, the 2020 RDX starts from $369 per month with $2,799 due at signing. With a $447 effective monthly cost, this is a good value relative to its MSRP.

If this offer doesn't apply to you, lease payments start from $409 per month with $2,999 due at signing on the base RDX. This equates to an effective monthly cost of $492, which isn't a good value relative to MSRP.

On top of not being a good value, this is only $10 cheaper per month than the larger MDX, which starts from $419 per month with $3,499 due at signing without the conquest or loyalty bonus.

The 2021 RDX gets its first lease offers this month. You can lease the RDX Base 2WD for 36 months at $439 per month with $2,999 due at signing. All-wheel drive costs an extra $20 per month and $300 at signing. With effective monthly costs of $522-$551, no 2021 RDX lease offers are good values relative to their MSRPs.

Check out all the promotional lease offers on the 2020 and 2021 Acura RDX in the table below. Only those including the conquest bonus are good values for their MSRPs.

Choose 0.9% APR or cash:

Acura offers 0.9% APR offer for 72 months for qualified buyers who finance through Acura Financial Services. Buyers cannot combine this with the finance cash offer below.

Acura also continues to offer a $1,500 finance cash incentive for qualified buyers who finance the 2020 RDX through Acura Financial Services. The catch is you must skip the 0.9% APR offer.

2021 Acura RDX: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

In 2019, the Acura RDX went through a full redesign that brought in a sportier look, the newest take on the brand’s signature grille, an updated powertrain, and much more. With the third-generation RDX entering just its third model year, we expect it to be a carryover.

As a carryover, we expect the 2021 Acura RDX to look virtually identical to the current model. This means it’ll carry on with its sleek roofline, long hood, cab-rearward format, bold wheels, wraparound headlights and taillights, and more. With this look still so fresh, we expect it to remain competitive despite its lack of changes.

Inside, the new-generation RDX brought in a fresh take on Acura interiors, dropping the old two-screen infotainment system and introducing a dashtop screen, a new infotainment touchpad, a push-button transmission interface, an angular instrument panel, creative storage and charging options, and more. With it being a carryover model, we expect no significant updates to its cabin.


Acura RDX

We expect the 2021 Acura RDX to roll in with the same powertrain as the current model, which includes a Civic Type-R-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 272 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. This engine will pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission that ships power to the front wheels as standard or all four wheels with optional all-wheel drive.

Thanks to solid crash and front-crash-prevention tests, the current Acura RDX is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with the “Good”-rated standard LED projector lights. Oddly, the optional adaptive headlights result in a lower “Acceptable” rating. We expect these ratings to remain the same in the 2021 RDX.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no confirmed release date for the 2021 Acura RDX, but based on the current model’s release schedule, we expect it to arrive in late-spring 2020.

With no changes coming, we expect pricing to remain close to today's MSRP range of $38,595 to $48,695 (destination fees included).

This compact luxury crossover will compete with the Audi Q5, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, and BMW X3.
