2016 Acura RDX Buyer's Guide

Refreshed for the 2016 model year, the Acura RDX mid-size luxury crossover remains one of the most elegant automobiles on the road. Take its styling for example; wedge shaped with minimal character lines, the look is crisp, well defined, and purposeful. This translates to the Acura’s interior treatment as well. Clean, well laid out, and with controls thoughtfully placed, the configuration is readily livable—while simultaneously reflective of the luxurious nature of the Acura RDX. For 2016, two trim packages are offered; the Technology package adds features like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert, while the Advance package adds remote engine start and parking sensor arrays. One of the most popular mid-size crossover SUVs, the sleek Acura RDX makes a strong case for itself.

What makes it move?

Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 is updated for the 2016 Acura RDX. The refined and fuel-efficient engine is now tuned to produce 279 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. The single overhead cam V6 uses Honda’s intelligent variable valve timing and lift electronic control (i-VTEC) to maximize horsepower and torque output, while minimizing fuel consumption. A six-speed automatic transmission is paired with front-wheel drive to complete the Acura’s standard powertrain. The all-wheel drive system now apportions more power to the rear wheels to improve dry pavement cornering.

Why buy the 2016 Acura RDX?

If you’re one who values understatement, appreciates a responsive automobile, and desires a comfortable ride with a reasonable price and luxury features, the Acura RDX will absolutely fill the bill. The engine is highly tractable, winds freely, sounds good and returns strong fuel economy too. The Acura’s carefully curated list of standard features contains all the kit you’d expect in this category, plus its options list is both intelligently populated and reasonably priced. Further, the rear seat comfortably accommodates a pair of full-sized adults, so kids are very comfortable seated back there too. You’ll get 20 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway with front drive (19 and 28 w/AWD). As small luxury crossover SUVs go, Acura’s RDX is a highly competitive consideration.
