BASE PRICE RANGE: $33,480-$35,480
BODY TYPE: Midsize/Luxury SUV
WHAT'S NEW: Removing SH-AWD from the base model RDX takes roughly 200 lb off the curb weight and $2000 off the MSRP, while fuel economy increases 2 mpg in city and highway driving conditions. All models receive Acura's polarizing front grille and subtle tweaks to front and rear fascias and taillights, as well as auto headlights, revised brakes, and Bluetooth as standard.
COOL FACT: RDX's 240-hp, 2.3L is Acura's first turbocharged engine.
SUM UP: Not enough against fierce rivals.
