2012 acura rdx Reviews and News

2012 Acura RDX
2012 Acura RDX
If you lust for a hot hatch but need the versatility of a small SUV, Acura may have the perfect compromise: the RDX. Despite sharing its basic architecture with Honda's popular CR-V, the RDX exhibits a completely different -- and much more dynamic -- personality. Even with its tall roofline and higher ground clearance, the SUV behaves like a subcompact. The rorty, snorty 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder packs a substantial wallop, and the available SH-AWD system -- which aids handling by sending power to the outer rear wheel during cornering -- helps the already-poised RDX exhibit tenacious grip. Dynamically, the RDX is still quite impressive, but it is starting to show its age elsewhere. That's most evident in the cabin. Although the interior is chock-full of clever cubbies and storage areas (including a locking center console designed to hold a laptop computer), its aesthetic generally feels dour and dated. Buyers may be wooed by a number of advanced features, such as ELS surround sound, perforated leather seating, and GPS-linked climate control, which are typically found in more expensive vehicles, but the RDX's true party trick remains its on-road demeanor. The compact utility segment has grown increasingly crowded, but the RDX is one of the few that convincingly meld the soul of a sports car with the shape of a sport-utility vehicle.

The RDX, Acura's compact crossover, was previously an outlier in its category. It seemed to have been developed by a bunch of engineers who were trying to channel the Integra Type R. As intriguing as that sounds, the RDX's buckboard ride and high-strung four-cylinder turbo just didn't work in a compact, premium-brand crossover.
2013 Acura RDX Front Three Quarter
Acura's 2013 RDX compact utility vehicle may have just officially debuted at the Chicago Auto Show, but the automaker already announced pricing today. The 2013 Acura RDX will be priced from $35,205, including $885 in destination charges.

We've been looking at the new 2013 Acura RDX since January, when a so-called prototype debuted at the Detroit show, but Acura used the 2012 Chicago Auto Show to officially debut the finalized production model.
2013 Acura ILX Left Front
Honda showed concept versions of the Acura ILX and RDX at the Detroit Auto Show last month. Now the luxury brand plans to debut the production version of the 2013 Acura ILX and the completely redesigned 2013 Acura RDX at the Chicago Auto Show this month.
