The RDX has proved to be a hot seller for Acura, and for good reason. It's small but refined alternative to mid-size luxury models like the Lexus RX or Cadillac SRX. The RDX's simplified model lineup and rich list of standard features also means that buyers get a well-equipped luxury vehicle that has a lower price tag than many other well-equipped models.
Acura RDX Model changes:
After a somewhat comprehensive refresh last year, the Acura RDX returns in 2017 with no new changes, save for a couple of new exterior colors.
All Acura RDX models are powered by a 279-horsepower, 3.5L V6 engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It provides strong, smooth acceleration, while the car-like MacPherson strut front suspension and independent multi-link rear setup are tuned to be comfort-oriented yet firm enough for quick maneuvers and an electric power steering system follows a Motion Adaptive algorithm for a natural feel at low or high speeds.
