2018 Acura RDX Review

Overview
The Acura RDX is the SUV you’d expect from the people who built the NSX supercar. Surefooted handling and plenty of power. Athletic body design. The luxury and comfort of an ergonomically correct cabin. Choose front-or all-wheel drive then add up to three RDX option packages. Precision Crafted Performance is the design philosophy behind all Acuras. For example the Jewel Eye LED headlights don’t just look good they give impressive down-road visibility with an intense wide beam of light that reduces the fatigue of night-time driving. The award-winning interior is designed around you the driver. From the steering-wheel-mounted controls to the leather-wrapped shifter to the available On-Demand Multi-Use Display everything is exactly where it should be. And best-in-class cargo space means you can fit everything else you need to bring. The RDX features a 279-horse 3.5-liter V-6 and a six-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. Add available All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control and you have the Performance factor of the Precision-Crafted Performance equation. Choose from a variety of colors options and Acura Genuine Accessories and build an RDX that’s all yours. The Acura RDX. The perfection you expect.
Technology
The Acura RDX is loaded with technology. With available AcuraLink the RDX keeps you connected to the world. Access the internet check emails and texts lock and unlock doors remotely and get directions or make reservations. Steer clear of traffic jams and save time with the AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic feature. Available GPS-linked dual-zone climate control uses solar sensors to measure the intensity and position of the sun. Why? To keep the temperature where it’s set—on both sides of the cabin. The Acura RDX. Precision-crafted technology.
Safety
The Acura RDX is so safe it got a 5-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Available AcuraWatch advanced driver assist systems alert you to things you might miss—like that car slamming on its brakes in front of you. Additional features include blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring. And if worse comes to worst Acura Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure evenly distributes frontal crash energy reducing forces transferred to the passenger compartment. The Acura RDX. Precision-crafted safety.
Performance
The Acura RDX has all the performance features you’d expect from the makers of the NSX supercar. The RDX features a 279-horse 3.5-liter V-6 and a six-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. Add available All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control and you’re ready for anything. How do you get a comfortable ride and precise handling at the same time? That’s easy: Amplitude Reactive Dampers. Minimal damping on smooth roads; enhanced steering control and reduced body roll when the road—or you—start pushing. The Acura RDX. Precision Crafted Performance.
