2018 Acura RDX Redesign Reviews

2018 The Acura RDX is a compact crossover that may take a while in gear but still blends in value, sophistication, and security above average.
The RDX, in its current form, comes from the 2013 model year, albeit with a few updates to keep it fresh. Today’s RDX is available in three basic flavors, Technology, and Front-with further options in terms of front-wheel or front-wheel drive and brand AcuraWatch collision avoidance technology. All in, the RDX spent still runs under $ 45,000, which is about where some of its competitors like the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class started. True, RDX does not match the feature, style, or refinement, but its value is important.

2018 Acura RDX Styling

Acura has passed several iterations of the front fascia “beak”, which nothing really works. RDX uses a better look than a brand sedan and we love the integrated five-square LED light. This is not a dual view, but RDX is largely unreasonable.
The 17-inch alloy wheels found on the base model live up to their entry level name. If you want to flash a little more, choose the Technology Package with the engine that has been completed in the 18an.

Inside, the RDX shows its age over designs that are busy and not very upscale, especially in the shade available. The matte silver trim pieces do not help much-they look more like something you see with a simple Honda CR-V choice than something claiming to be a luxury car.

2018 Acura RDX Performance

With good handling and fixing the V-6, Acura RDX drives fit the upper class.

Acura bucks turbocharged 4-cylinder trends with 3.5-liter fitting, naturally aspirated V-6 for all RDXs. With 276 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque, the V-6 does not bend and return the fuel economy not far from the less powerful turbo-4. Rear wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is $ 1,500 extra for those who need more handles.

Although RDX is not the sexiest thing on the market-far from it-the basic shape of the two crossover boxes using the brand’s half-nose is better than the sedan. The interior is busy and unlike the upscale feelings of other rivals-but, again, there is a low price point. Considered a bridge between mainline crossovers like the Honda CR-V and the true luxury model of a German competitor, the RDX starts to make sense.

Buyers looking for a semi-luxury ride will find that the RDX interior is very spacious and packed well, at least for front seaters. The rear seat riders will find low bench and limited space, but the cargo area is well formed for larger objects.
Despite his age, the RDX performs well in crash tests. IIHS and NHTSA give high marks and Acura offers features like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and departure departure alert for basic models and reasonable technology $ 1,300 (standard technology on topping, $ 43,475 RDX Advance).

Unlike rivals, RDX is available with just one machine – but it’s great. The 3.5-liter V-6 from Acura is rated here with 279 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. It brings forward or four-wheel drive through a slick 6-speed automatic transmission that comes standard with a paddle shifter.

The steaming paddles give clues to the sportyness that is not there with the RDX. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, because the crossover suspension absorbs the pavement’s imperfection with the aplomb and runs well on a wide stretch of road. The thick three-tiered steering wheel again shows much more resilience than you can find in the RDX, but the credit is due to Acura for adjusting the electric steering wheel to deliver less assertiveness, say, the Lexus RX.

2018 Acura RDX Safety

The RDX comes with an air bag, ABS, and complete stability control, and it offers buyers a choice between front-wheel and front-wheel drive.
Its security structure survives well in crash testing, says NHTSA, which provides five overall stars and five stars in each category except rollover, where it earns four. IIHS agreed, giving it the top “Good” score in all last year’s collision test.

(The basic structure of this year is the same.) IIHS also says that standard RDX LED lamps can get an “Acceptable” rating, and the optional automatic emergency braking system is rated “Superior.” It was awarded Top Safety Pick + last year, which we hope will carry for 2018.

The system is grouped into the AcuraWatch Plus package, which also includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warnings, lane departure warnings, and ongoing tracks. With an additional $ 1,300 on the base and the RDXs Technology package, it looks like affordable pricing and technology are valuable to us. AcuraWatch standard on Range-topping RDX Advance.

2018 Acura RDX Features

Acura RDX is not too much lost, but only available in limited quantities.

The 2018 Acura RDX is available in just a few combinations, which should make your ideal model easy to find on the dealer’s premises. All are well-equipped for the money and come with high-tech infotainment, but we lament the limited adjusting capabilities seen in most other rivals.

At $ 36.775, the basic RDX is equipped with the expected power features and dual-zone automatic climate control, plus some niceties like moonroof, power liftgate, key proximity to ignition without lock, low and low LED backlight, Camera backup, and Heated front seats. However, their leather upholstery and not the real deal and while the driver’s seat has a 10-way power, passenger only 4 directions.

RDX $ 40,475 with the Technology package fixes this complaint with leather upholstery, 8-way passenger-side power, an 8.0 inch enhanced infotainment system and audio, navigation and 18-inch ELS wheels.

Go to the complete ship and you will get Advance package $ 43.475: ventilated seat, fog lamp, auto-dimming exterior mirror, remote start, and parking sensor.

The initial model comes standard with AcuraWatch, which is a trademark for a range of security technologies: adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward crash warning, route departure warning, and ongoing track. AcuraWatch is an option on another model and at a price of $ 1,300, this is worth every penny in our eyes.

All-wheel drive adds a further $ 1,500 and is again available on each RDX iteration.
Filled, RDX Advance sticker for the unreasonable $ 44,975, including a mandatory destination fee of $ 975.

The infotainment system installed on Technology and Advance RDXs does not include our favorites for many reasons. Its intricate picks, which make it more frustrating thanks to two screens, can take some time to sort it out. It also does not comply with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, something is becoming increasingly common on new cars.
