Should I Buy an Acura RDX?
It is not as sporty as the Porsche Macan or elegant as the Mercedes-Benz GLC, but the RDX is a decent premium SUV and a relatively affordable one in addition.
Yes, the BMW X3 is a better choice, in our opinion, – with brawnier engines and a more intuitive infotainment system, – but a significantly more expensive one. So, if you have no room in your budget for a BMW – consider an RDX.
The Acura RDX is comfortable and agile. It features athletic handling, a refined ride, and offers plenty of space for cargo and passengers, as well as a generous list is standard equipment. On the downside, there are limited driver visibility, somewhat clunky infotainment controls, and a lack of engine choices.
What is New for 2023?
The new model has a fresher exterior and interior. It has got standard 19-inch or optional 20-inch wheels, improved driving dynamics, more comfortable and quieter cabin trimmed in premium materials (Milano leather, open-pore wood).
Besides, it offers more standard safety features now. The carmaker made sport tuning of the suspension. The adaptive damper system is available with three different damping profiles. The vehicle’s integrated dynamics system comes with 4 modes – Normal, Comfort, Snow, and Sport.
