Strong, responsive V6 powertrain; capable handling; comfortable interior; flexible, versatile interior layout
The Acura RDX was redesigned for 2013, becoming slightly larger and adopting a V6 to replace the former turbocharged 4-cylinder. As a result, this RDX is quieter, more refined and more comfortable, and rather than being one of the edgier compact crossovers it's now a somewhat smaller but still 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 will get a well-equipped luxury vehicle that probably has a lower price tag than many other well-equipped models.
