JOSH SADLIER: This is Edmunds editor Josh Sadlier, and here's an expert rundown of the 2017 Acura RDX. The RDX is Acura's compact luxury crossover, loosely based on the Honda CRV, but obviously pretty far removed. You've got luxury styling cues on the outside, luxury trimmings on the inside. Under the hood, there's a 3.5 liter v-6 engine, 279 horsepower, 0 to 60 in 6.5 seconds in Edmond's testing. So this is a pretty quick rig.Front wheel drive is standard, all wheel drive is optional. If you stick with front wheel drive you get up to 29 miles per gallon on the highway. It's pretty impressive for something with this much power. Cargo capacity, we're giving it a pro. It's not super impressive by the numbers, but for the segment, not too bad. Easy flip down handles on either side of the cargo bay let you flip down the rear seat backs, open up about 61 cubic feet of cargo space. It's enough to do something with. Inside the RDX, you see one of the better backseats in this segment. The cushions nice and high on the bottom, plenty of headroom, plenty of leg room. It's really more of a midsize experience back there. Makes this vehicle an interesting alternative to, technically, mid-ize competitors like the Lexus RX. Upfront the RDX gives you a lot of features for your money. You'll note that in this particular model, there's only one infotainment screen in the top of the dash. Many RDX's will be equipped with a dual-screen layout that we find distracting, and frankly a bit sub par for the class. Overall the RDX offer strong value for the segment, doesn't have the overt luxury of some of its rivals. But if you're looking for a nice combination of performance and versatility, still a great pick. For more Edmund's expert rundowns click the link to subscribe.
