Acura RDX

Expert's Rating

3.35 (Good)

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.

Generations

For over a decade now, the Acura RDX has languished in the shadow of it's bigger and more successful brother, the perennially popular and best-selling MDX. Now, however, it seems like the smaller crossover has finally said enough's enough. All new from the ground up, the 2019 rendition of the RDX is no longer content with being second-best. With unprecedented levels of technology, safety, and performance, the new RDX is ready to compete with the heavy-hitters of the compact-luxury crossover class.
