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 Jeep Renegade receives a handful of infotainment updates for 2018. A rearview camera, a 5-inch touchscreen and a six-speaker audio system are all now standard. New, upgraded 7- and 8.4-inch touchscreens now include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. All touchscreens are loaded with the newest version of Jeep's Uconnect infotainment system.

PROS
Trailhawk model's best-in-class off-road capability
Agile handling when going around turns
Plenty of easy-to-use technology features
Lots of character with a classic Jeep look

CONS
Rear-seat legroom is tight for adults
Boxy shape makes for lots of wind noise on the highway
Fuel economy is middling for the segment
Nine-speed transmission is clunky and easily confused
