2015 Acura RDX
2015 Acura RDX

New for 2015

The Acura RDX is largely unchanged for the 2015 model year, but a refreshed model is expected for the 2016 model year.

Vehicle Overview

The Acura RDX is a two-row crossover that fits below the popular three-row MDX in the automaker’s lineup.

Summary

The 2015 Acura RDX comes with a 3.5-liter V-6 that makes 273 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque, which gets paired with a six-speed automatic and has the option of all-wheel drive over the standard front-wheel drive. Variable cylinder management allows the V-6 to run on three or four cylinders, and thus the EPA rates the RDX at 20/28 mpg city/highway, with a one-mpg penalty for AWD in both categories.
The 2015 Acura RDX received a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars), and in IIHS testing received four ratings of good (the highest possible rating is good).

What We Think

Introduced in 2013, the current-generation Acura RDX has been tamed compared to the sportier first-generation model. The roomier second-gen RDX has a flat floor for second-row passengers, and is actually comfortable for three across. Controls are arranged in a “sober, straightforward manner,” but one editor commented that the interior is a “design-free zone, wrought in materials that are decent but little more…”
One advantage to Acura’s approach to the RDX is the simplicity of the available trim levels, as there are only two trims: with or without the technology package. Everything else is standard, and you only have to choose between FWD or AWD. We recommend skipping the AWD, in a Driven review of a 2013 Acura RDX AWD one editor explained, “The car is so lazy about reapportioning torque to the rear I thought it must be front-wheel drive. It wasn't, but it might as well have been.”
Other than the disappointing all-wheel-drive system, however, the new RDX looks perfectly positioned to meet the wants and needs of its target market. It may be less of an iconoclast, but it's roomier, mellower, more powerful, more comfortable, and more economical.
