How many stars does the RDX have?
The government gave the RDX a top score of five stars for total crash protection, with five stars for total front impact safety and five stars for side-impact safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the RDX its highest possible score of "Good" in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact, roof-strength and head restraints and seats (whiplash protection) tests.
What is optional active safety equipment?
Optional active safety equipment includes forward collision warning, forward collision mitigation with automatic braking, a blind spot monitor, lane-departure warning and lane-departure intervention. Though these systems on paper sound similar to those offered by rivals, in practice we found them to set off the collision alarm in instances when a collision is clearly not imminent. Its adaptive cruise control system is also too quick to slam on the brakes and too slow to get back up to speed.
Is the Acura RDX a good SUV?
There are many reason why the Acura RDX is one of our top picks in the segment. It’s a well-made, well-equipped compact SUV that is a clear, premium step up from the Honda CR-Vs of this world. Its value is undeniable and a must-drive for sensible sorts whose left side of the brain is more influential than the right.
What is included in the Advance package?
The Advance package includes all of the above extras plus front and rear parking sensors, automatic wipers, foglights, auto-dimming side mirrors, remote ignition and ventilated front seats.
The RDX premiered in the 2007 model year as Acura’s entry into the red-hot premium compact crossover sport-utility segment. It’s a two-row model, with seating for five and the choice of front- or all-wheel-drive, aimed at the Audi Q5 and BMW X3.
What’s New for 2017?
After a mid-cycle update for 2016, the only changes for the 2017 RDX are new silver and gray exterior paint colors, and the availability of a black interior with the pearl white exterior color.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The second-generation RDX comes with one powertrain choice: a smooth 279-hp 3.5-liter V-6 hooked up to a new six-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. Power is adequate, but we found that the transmission can be balky on upshifts. The part-time AWD system can send up to 50 percent of the engine’s power to the rear wheels.
EPA fuel-economy testing and reporting procedures have changed over time. For the latest numbers on current and older vehicles, visit the EPA’s website and select Find & Compare Cars.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
The RDX is a comfortable two-row SUV aimed at consumers looking for more pizazz than offered in less-expensive Honda SUVs, but at a price more affordable than key German competitors. Standard features include heated seats, dual-zone climate control, and keyless entry.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Standard tech for the RDX includes Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, and a seven-speaker audio system. Acura’s navigation system, featuring an 8.0-inch color screen, is a standalone option. Check the Technology package and AcuraLink satellite communications and voice recognition with real-time traffic are added to the nav system.
