2008 Acura RDX 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology Package (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Wow! For the money the RDX really delivers. I think of it as a cross between the TL Type S and the MDX. Power is ample and the turbo makes it fun. Grip, hold, and road feel are spot on. The RDX makes you feel like you are attached to the pavement with no chance to ever come loose. Acura, as they tend to do, has really invested a LOT in the technology and engineering that you will never see. From the SH-AWD to the first of its kind dual stage turbo. So far, we are really impressed with the RDX.

Best Features

Performance, grip, interior design and build. Tech package radio is amazing. Nav, while not touch screen, is very good.

Worst Features

Please go back to a touch screen nav! Other than that, fuel econ could be better of course; 20 MPG average for a 2.3l I4 seems low but I guess if you compare it to an engine with similar power it is doing very well. Finally, the RDX really needs intelligent key entry!
