The Acura RDX offers something a little different in the small luxury SUV class. It has a lot of available technology features, a well-built interior, excellent ergonomics, and better-than-average cargo and passenger space. There’s certainly a lot to like and, feature for feature, it’s significantly less expensive than European alternatives.
From Edmunds: But the RDX has a few weaknesses compared to top competitors. Its turbocharged four-cylinder engine provides decent power, but there isn’t an optional engine upgrade for buyers looking for more power or a hybrid option. Additionally, we’re not terribly fond of the RDX’s infotainment system. And the required learning curve to operate it may turn off shoppers who aren’t interested in picking up new technology.
Overall, though, the 2020 Acura RDX is worth checking out if you’re looking for a good value on a luxury SUV, especially compared to European rivals such as the Audi Q5, the Jaguar F-Pace and the Mercedes GLC.
