Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Acura RDX ranks 3 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Acura RDX combines good value for the money with a comfortable and fully featured cabin, V6 power, and a smooth ride. This SUV has a long list of standard features and options, which are tied to packages and not trim levels. This means you don’t have to buy the high-end model to get the option you’re coveting most.

Pros
Peppy and capable V6 engine
Comfortable and quiet cabin
Smooth handling

Cons
Less sporty than competitors
Confusing infotainment system

The 2017 Acura RDX is one of the smoothest, most responsive-driving compact crossover SUVs—even though it prioritizes practicality.
Acura may be the underdog today in luxury sedans, yet it's giving shoppers exactly what they want with the 2017 Acura RDX and the larger MDX.
That includes strong powertrains, quiet cabins, and impressive safety—as well as just the right amount of versatility and practicality to make it one of the best-balanced picks in the segment, for those who are balancing the usual mix of sometimes-conflicting priorities.

Pros
Smooth ride
Strong V-6 performance
Agile handling
Quiet interior

Cons
Back seat is a little cramped
Rear seats don't fold flat
Annoying audio and forward-collision beeps
Tinny speakers

If a small, luxury SUV is on your shopping list, you should consider the 2017 Acura RDX. This stylish Acura is one of our favorites thanks to its fuel-efficient, yet powerful V6, comfortable interior and long list of standard features. Read on to find out why the RDX could be a good fit for you.

Pros
Strong acceleration and fuel economy from standard V6 engine
Elevated rear seat provides generous legroom and a commanding view
More features than competitors at a similar or much lower price
Generous cargo capacity for the segment.

Cons
Technology interface can be distracting to use, especially the optional dual-screen system
High-tech safety features and adaptive cruise control don't work as well as some rival systems
Cabin lacks overtly luxurious look and feel.
