The 2015 Acura RDX continues largely unchanged, with the model getting a full-fledged redesign for the 2013 model year, in which the edgy, unconventional styling and turbocharged I-4 of its predecessor were dropped in favor of a more conservative, upscale look, and naturally aspirated V-6 power.
Counterintuitively, fuel economy improved over the turbo four with the V-6, and the model boasts significantly better refinement. The resulting RDX is competent, smooth, and comfortable—but lacks the excitement of its feisty predecessor.
Depending on trim and configuration, the RDX is priced from a little more than $35,000 to the low 40s. Those looking for a more engaging driving experience might want to consider the Audi Q5 or BMW X3, or even the newcomer Lincoln MKC. But for those who appreciate the traditional Acura attributes of solidity, reliability, and refinement, the RDX is a solid choice. A refreshed model is due for 2016 with slightly more power, LED headlights, and other detail changes.
