Solid Compact SUV w/ Minor Reservations

by Happy Curmudgeon from Bend, OR | June 26, 2020

I have the entry level "Standard" model with no additional packages. Overall a very good car that I enjoy driving. This is my fourth Acura, the first built in the USA. Panel gaps and alignments are not up to Japanese standards. Not a deal breaker for me, but take a close look at any unit you are considering and make your own call. Interior and exterior design is very nice and materials are quite good. Nice suite of safety features, but no blind-spot monitoring. Expect it in a car costing $40K. Instrument panel and infotainment systems have a learning curve. The panel could use a digital speedometer display, an easy software patch. Would like the option to purchase navigation which would be easy since the car has wi-fi connectivity for software updates. Seats are comfortable for long road trips and the cabin reasonably quiet. Engine and transmission work well together. Sport+ driving mode is a lot of fun. Handles well, but no BMW. In Sport or Comfort modes, steering is a little dead on center. Car drives "big" for a compact. Good sight lines, but the vehicle not as agile as X3 of Q5. Developed suspension noise at around 7K miles which dealer tracked down to loose nut not properly torqued during build. Again not to Japanese standards. Mileage below EPA ratings, 17-18 in town and 25 on the road. Seems like good value for the money.

Lots of standard features sporty & luxury comfort

by Jesse from San Jose, CA | June 20, 2020

I was initially shopping for Lexus Nx and I figured I check the competition. The Lexus lacked a few things like a bit of "go" on the freeway and the interior looked dated. The Acura had more standard features and also a much more modern interior and more overall interior space. The ride is not as soft as the Lexus but not as stiff as a BMW. It is a great balance of sportyness and comfort. Swawd is great and provides great grip.

Love the RDX

by Ron from Strongsville | May 21, 2020

I currently own a TLX and was looking for a model that was higher off the ground but still felt like I was driving a car. that's where the RDX comes in. Great cabin, great seats....visually pleasing. The infotainment system is great, hype about the touchpad being difficult is highly overblown. The Aspec model looks sharp on the road and has some fun options with the sport mode. I love the new ride!
