Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For many reasons, the Acura RDX is one of our top picks in the luxury compact SUV segment. It's a well-made and well-equipped SUV that is a clear, premium step up from mainstream compact SUVs such as the Honda CR-V. Its value is undeniable and a must-drive for buyers who value smart engineering and style equally.

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
Cabin lacks overtly luxurious look and feel
High-tech safety features and adaptive cruise control don't work as well as some rival systems
Technology interface can be distracting to use

The 2018 Acura RDX ranked #1 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Acura RDX has a score of 8.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 53 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Spacious, adult-friendly seats in both rows
Convenient cargo area
Refined, competent V6 engine

Cons
Complicated, confusing infotainment systems

No engine or performance upgrades available

The 2018 Infiniti Q50 is powerful, well-equipped luxury sedan that doesn't quite match up to Germany's finest yet.

Pros
Still beautiful following refresh
Red Sport 400's engine is stellar
Hybrid's efficiency
Updated interior impresses

Cons
Direct Adaptive Steering isn't great
Still doesn't feel as premium as rivals

Infiniti’s artfully sculpted and muscular midsizer, the Q50, but its performance is less scintillating. The 208-hp turbo 2.0-liter inline-four will disappoint enthusiasts, but a 300-hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 is offered, as is a hybrid powertrain good for 360 hp and 32-mpg highway. All Q50s get a seven-speed automatic and either rear- or all-wheel drive.

Pros
Distinctive and attractive exterior,
effortless power.

Cons
Numb steering,
outdated interior layout,
imperfect transmission programming.
