Acura RDX 2019 Review

Versus the competition
The RDX offers high levels of luxury, safety features and value in its class but falls flat when it comes to multimedia; others more seamlessly integrate their systems.
Dynamic, Energetic
The RDX's bold, edgy styling gives off an energy matched by the SUV's engaging, dynamic road manners. All 2019 models use a new 272-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous V-6 and six-speed. Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system, which vanished in 2013, is again available.
Comfort, Class 
The previous RDX's interior was nice, but its Honda CR-V roots were just below the surface. The new model stands alone and ups the luxury factor quite a bit with interesting materials, like brushed aluminum trim, and upscale touches, like red contrast stitching on the seats and other surfaces.
Control Breakdown
The RDX bears the unfortunate responsibility of being the brand's guinea pig for the new True Touchpad Interface multimedia system. Like a fifth-grader's volcano that erupts too soon at a science fair, the system is an experiment gone wrong.
A Good Value, But ...
The RDX continues to make a case for itself by being a compelling value: It starts at $38,295 in front-drive form, undercutting many competitors. The Q5, which offers standard all-wheel drive, starts at $42,475; others come standard with front-wheel drive and also start higher, with the Volvo XC60 at $40,195 and the BMW X3 at $41,995 (all prices include destination charges).
