The 2018 Acura RDX represents what’s best about a driving experience: a powerful engine, sophisticated features, luxurious comfort, and refined style. This luxury compact SUV is ideal for individuals or families looking for a powerful, comfortable, and spacious vehicle, whether hitting the open road or running errands around town. This luxury compact SUV comes standard with a V6 engine and optional all wheel drive, making this crossover both powerful and fun to drive. This compact SUV comes with a standard 3.5-liter V6 that pumps out 279 horsepower, gripping every curve in the road even while accelerating up to 60 miles per hour in under 7 seconds.
Those who have a lot of cargo to haul will love the space in the trunk, which is the largest in its class. This doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of space for passengers, comfortably seating five with plenty of legroom and headroom for adults, even in the back seat. The new RDX is different from the competition in that there is only one trim level, but the included features more than beat out the competition. Standard features on the 2018 Acura RDX include keyless ignition, a sunroof, a rearview camera, keyless entry, premium vinyl upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear privacy glass, cruise control, heated seats, and more. While there are no further trim levels, there are three optional packages that customers can choose: Technology, AcuraWatch, and Advance.
The Technology package includes a navigation system with traffic information, GPS-linked climate control, leather upholstery, smartphone apps with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and more. The AccuraWatch Plus package includes adaptive cruise control, trip computer display, automatic braking, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning. The Advance package includes all of the features from the Technology and AcuraWatch Plus packages, with front and rear parking sensors, remote ignition, ventilated front seats, and automatic wipers. The Advance package with all-wheel drive is the best value, adding the most options for the money. Take the following quiz to help decide whether the 2018 Acura RDX is right for your needs.
