Happy Camper
Came from a BMW X-3 that I had been driving since purchasing new in 2011. The RDX is an easier daily driver. I had been driving on run flat tires for so long I had forgotten how bad they are. The RDX is simply more comfortable over all road conditions. Test drove the 2018 X-3 and was disappointed in the BMW’s turbo 4 pot. Even though it had good acceleration it’s still displays an economy car feel, sound and characteristics. Visibility is super, comfort is excellent. Just finished a 650 mile road trip that I had taken many times in the X-3 and felt more comfortable and much less fatigued in the RDX. Throw in at least $10,000 lower price than a similarly equipped X-3 and I’m simply a happy camper.
Awesome SUV that is a bit long in the tooth
While the RDX 2nd gen has been around since 2013 the car has aged well and received a nice mid cycle refresh in 2016. The car is basically unchanged for 2018 and with the 3rd gen 2019 RDX on its way this summer you probably can score a good deal on a current gen or get one if you refuse to adopt to a high speed transmission w/ a turbo engine. One of the best parts of the 2nd gen RDX is the bullet proof 6 speed transmission paired to the 3.5L V6 engine, that has 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of toque, which means a healthy amount of instant power to the wheels. The car emits a healthy growl and is equipped with VCM so even with a V6 the RDX's 19/27 MPG is very respectable since a Lexus NX 200t AWD w/ a 4 cylinder turbo gets 22/28 MPG. Even though most luxury compact crossovers are oriented for utility and comfort it's sad that Acura omitted SH-AWD from the 2nd gen. The basic AWD system is fine and probably more than enough in most situations, but Acura's SH-AWD system is almost equal to Audi's Quattro system and it could have helped in acceleration since the RDX does suffer from some wheel squeal. I mostly cross shopped the RDX against the Lexus NX 200t AWD and while the Lexus just is more luxurious and offers more high end features it can costs thousands more than a RDX, it lacks the cargo/utility of an Acura, and noise wise it is louder, which is odd to say about a Lexus. The top of the line Advance trim offers some nice features as nice rims, heated & ventilated seats, remote engine start, rain-sensing windshield wipers, fog lights, and front and rear parking sensors but still lacks Android/Apple compatibility, heated steering wheel, heated outboard seats, panoramic moon roof, high grain leather, thigh extenders, wireless charging, 360 cameras, plus the RDX lacks some of the materials associated with a luxury car. If these aforementioned features aren't required than I think the RDX sits in between something like a loaded Honda CR-V and a Buick Envision, Infiniti QX50, Volvo XC60. RDX's resale and reliability are top notch and compared to German cars Acura maintenance is considered normal to even cheap. Acura recommends premium fuel but regular does just fine. The trim I wouldn't recommend at minimum to get is the Tech package since it provides sports seats w/ perforated leather, 8 way front passenger seat, on demand multi use display, voice recognition for Nav and Climate, navigation, AcuraLink, Real Time Traffic, ELS audio system, Siri Eyes Free, Blind Spot Info, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor. Overall the 2018 RDX is a very good car and really its biggest issue is that feature wise it falls behind the pack, but if you don't need the latest and greatest and want something that has a luxury caché and has a V6 engine with a smooth a quiet ride there aren't really many choices besides the RDX.
Good Vehicle But Not a Luxury Ride
The 2018 RDX is good but basically a Honda with some nice touches and a different grill. I've leased Audi vehicles for several years but decided to go with the Acura because the 2018 Audi Q5's lease quote was about $100/month higher for a similarly equipped vehicle. After driving the RDX for a couple of months, I can see why. The difference in interior materials, engineering, and overall luxury show that the Audi is far better. In particular, I'm disappointed in the assembly quality. Exterior panels have uneven gaps, bolts and screws are visible, and there are other areas that show that Honda took assembly and materials shortcuts which a "luxury" brand should not do. In addition, the dealership experience left a lot to be desired as the RDX was not prepped correctly, tires were over-inflated, the front license plate bracket was not attached, and (not to sound petty but this goes to the "experience" factor) I did not receive a full tank of gas. When I said something to the salesman, he brushed it off. Since then, I have not heard from the dealer or from Acura - even to see if I'm enjoying the vehicle. Overall, I'll keep the RDX but think I'll go back to Audi for my next vehicle. This is an update of the review I posted in October. Since then, my RDX developed squeaks, rattles, and buzzing that demonstrated the indifferent quality of assembly and the poor choice of materials. The voice recognition system got even worse and trying to work with it in traffic almost resulted in accidents on two occasions. While the navigation system could ultimately find the desired destination, it never chose the best or even safest route. The seats became more uncomfortable over time, to such an extent that my wife had to use a seat cushion to even sit in the vehicle for a drive longer than 30 minutes. Finally, at 7800 miles on the odometer I gave up, "bit the financial bullet", and got out of my lease. Acura may aspire to premium status but I know I'll never get another one. The materials, assembly, fit and finish, and technology are, at best, equal to Honda but at Lexus prices. My wife's Hyundai Elantra is a better vehicle than the Acura RDX.

Acura RDX vs. the competition

2018 Acura RDX

2018 Acura RDX

2018 Lexus NX 300

2018 Lexus NX 300

Acura RDX vs. Lexus NX 300

The Lexus NX 300 (renamed the 300 for 2018; previously, it was the NX 200t) is close in size and price to the RDX. It has a bolder design inside and out, but whether that's good or not comes down to your personal tastes. The NX 300 comes standard with some driver assistance features that are optional on the RDX, such as adaptive cruise control. The RDX has more cargo space, and its V6 is more powerful but thirstier than the NX's turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

Compare Acura RDX & Lexus NX 300 features

Acura RDX vs. Infiniti QX50

Infiniti's 2018 QX50 model is similar in size to the RDX, but it prioritizes performance and handling. Like the RDX, the QX50 comes with a V6, but it's more powerful (and less fuel-efficient). Despite how similar they are in size, the RDX has a much larger cargo area and a roomier interior.

Compare Acura RDX & Infiniti QX50 features

Acura RDX vs. Audi Q5

The Audi Q5 asks a higher price than the RDX, but its premium materials, handsome exterior and higher towing capacity might make the difference worth it. Though its turbocharged inline four-cylinder doesn't make as much power, the Q5 boasts better fuel economy. Exterior and interior dimensions, from cargo volume to seating space, are similar. If you're considering a lease, the Audi has slightly stronger residual values, too. The Q5 has an Edmunds overall rating of 4 stars.

Is the Acura RDX a good car?

The RDX's primary attribute is its value. It is one of a few premium small SUVs with a powerful V6 engine standard, and it remains competitive in terms of price even when you tick every option. Families will enjoy generous cargo space that's easily accessed by a wide rear hatch opening. The RDX does have a few downsides, such as a dated-looking infotainment system and an interior that isn't dressed as nicely as those of other premium SUVs. But for the money, these shortcomings are easy to overlook.

How can I get a Acura RDX deal?

Edmunds can help you find a great local price on a 2018 Acura RDX. Check out our 2018 Acura RDX Pricing page for the latest exclusive offers in your area.

Does the Acura RDX have good MPG?

Because the RDX uses a larger V6, its fuel economy is a little worse than that of competitors powered by smaller engines. The EPA rates the base model at 23 mpg combined (20 city/28 highway). The rating for all-wheel-drive models is 1 mpg lower across the board, at 22 mpg combined (19 city/27 highway).

Does the Acura RDX have good resale value?

If you're ready to buy, you're probably wondering about the Acura RDX's resale value. How much will a 2018 Acura RDX be worth in two or five years — or whenever you decide to sell? Check out the Edmunds True Cost to Own (TCO) calculator. It includes projected annual depreciation over the first five years of ownership based on Edmunds' robust market transaction data.
