The redesigned Acura RDX is much improved: well equipped for the money and easy to live with. The smooth, capable V6 managed a respectable 22 mg overall. Handling is sound if not especially agile, and the ride is a little stiff. Cabin ambience is a bit plain, but the controls are simple to use. Reliability should be very good.

Performs as Advertised! by AnxiousAngler on 05/10/2012. Trim: 2013 Acura RDX 6-Spd AT AWD w/ Technology Package, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Love the handling and pep. Drives like my sedan -- which is what I was looking for. You can really tell its a 6 cylinder when you need it, but I cannot detect when it drops from 6 - 4 - 3 cylinders while crusing; or, when they kick back in. Really quiet yet its sound system is phenomenal. The price for its feature set was $ thousands less than comparable Q5, BMW, Lexus etc. I have the AWD w/ the Technology Package. Gas mileage seems to be what is advertised as I get 24 mpg for mixed driving. I also hit 28 on the highway for my first long range trip.
Cons: I would like to see the tech package include features include lane change detection. It also should have flatter back seats when they are folded down.
Overall review: I read a lot of reviews and test drove key competitors: BMW X3, Audi Q5, Lexus, Toureq etc.. They are all excellent SUV's. I chose the RDX because it was a best buy as it hit all my requirements and cost less.
