The third generation RDX packs a lot of goodness into a slightly larger, slightly more expensive package. Check it out on this week's review!

      The SH-AWD is a great, if complicated drivetrain technology but honestly the speeds and sharpness of corners required to invoke it would almost always cause your wife or girlfriend to start screaming and punching you in the arm “SLOW THE HELL DOWN!” when, in fact, it is just barely starting to approach its limits of handling and is exactly when it gets fun. Only worthwhile when she is not around.

      This guy is a vehicular disaster. He got the all wheel drive system wrong, he got confused working the track pad, and the base power plant for the Volve is not faster than the RDX. Read a spec sheet before you open your pie hole.

      2019 RDX A-Spec SH-AWD
      None of the reviews that I have both listened to or read have any mention of some important points on this vehicle. No one speaks of the GPS system that is subpar. A GPS that you cannot store a name to an address, A GPS that can only store 30 locations( My 1992 Garmin 75 names locations) There is no mention of some important amenities that it lacks There is no approach lighting, No rain sensing wipers, No electric tilt steering wheel to facilitate entry and exit, Poor interior lighting, No folding mirrors, come on Acura this is a $45k A-Spec Vehicle. Am I to understand that because it is a sporty vehicle it does not require these amenities?
      No one has observed that the tailgate does not fitting properly on the right side plus the left bumper edge is not aligned properly, When I complained, Acura of Pembroke Pines, they showed me another one with the identical problems. These vehicles should not have been allowed to leave the factory in this condition, there is also orange peel in the paint. I will admit that it does drive very well and it is an attractive vehicle, however if I had noticed the above, it would have been a deal breaker. A Hyundai Santa Fe comes standard with all the bells and whistles at a much lower sticker price. My 2016 NX was better equipped. If the NX had a better AWD system I would have never bought or even looked at the Acura RDX With my short experience with Acura, I must say that Lexus has superior customer Service..

      For expected mpg's in the next decade the only way to reach >35mpg is non turbo or hybrids.

      I
      had a 2014 LX AWD. It was a good car but could used a 200 HP+ engine going up
      hills. I was going to traded it for the 2016 or later because they had improved
      the seating comfort, eliminated the foot brake, and added the armrest.
      Unfortunately, only the LX came with the 2.4 reliable engine, and the
      unefficient CVT.  I didn't even want to
      mess with the turbo and oil mix. So I did the next best thing and traded
      the  CRV for a 2018 RDX basic AWD. Now I
      have more powerful engine, 6 speed trans, comfortable seats, more luxury
      interior and the same dash control and AWD. 
      The only thing missed in my RDX was the SH-AWD.   I did test the 2019 RDX AWD but it also came
      with the turbo, 10 speed trans and the confusing info system pad. To me Acura
      missed the boat by not mating the SH-AWD with the V-6 and 6 speed trans. Who
      cared if it used premium fuel or MPG on a $45,000 SUV.

      After using the RDX for a day or so, I felt the track pad was very easy to use. Everyone is complaining about it, but I found it to work well. Also, wireless charging for your cell phone? Is this really a feature we need? It's pretty finicky just on a nightstand.

      A few helpful stat from a family-based reviewer would be whether or not you can easily fit 3 child seats in the 2nd row. I assumed that would be covered given the name of the channel.

      The track pad is fine. It took me a minute to master it. I don't know why so many reviewers are harping all over it.

      Would've liked a digital cluster instead of old-school analog dials.

      Also in that price range needs wireless cell charger.

      "Acura is calling it an all-new, exclusive platform—but the RDX started with the Honda CR-V architecture and modified the chassis and upgraded the powertrain." Motor Trend

      The Motor Trend 2019 RDX 2.0T faired even worse of all formal tests with a 7.1 0-60 mph time or one full second behind the RDX v6.That follows Consumer Reports 7.0s and Car & Driver 6.6s ranging from a half second slower or more behind the prior generation with 3 5l. Even the lower power Buick Envision 2.0T with less power and four less speeds accelerated quicker, stopped shorter, and handled MT handling test better than the RDX. "RDX's vague braking feel and response. Given that Acura equipped the RDX with "limousine" brakes, slowing down precisely was frustrating for many. Said Scott Evans: "Trying to make a stop sign is much harder than it needs to be."  "Acura's wide net leads to confusion about what aiming to be. "It's torn between being luxurious and soft like a Lincoln, sporty like an Alfa, or techy like an Audi, and those things sorta cancel each other out...on winding roads in Sport+ mode, but we didn't feel the emotion we expected."

      @J. Danny so sad:
      "Consumer Reports can no longer recommend six car models, including the Acura RDX SUV... because of problems identified in CR’s annual reliability survey. The survey has data on 470,000 vehicles as reported by their owners."

      The drive mode knob takes up way too much space for no reason. Most buyers of this car are just going to set it and forget it. It could've easily been place lower and smaller, less tacky

      RDX Lows: Touchpad tribulations, stiff ride, lethargic transmission The performance is more b-spec then see spec. Acura needs to free up the RDX Hardware to do its best work... Compared with last generation RDX, this new one requires an extra point for second to reach 60 miles per hour... Tires help increase skidpad grip by .04 G / last-gen, but this Utes .81 G still Trails almost everything else in the class, and the new tires howl when pushed. They only managed a 177. From 60 miles per hour also on the underwhelming end of the segment with soft brake pedal makes smooth stops tricky... About a spec branding is over promise to RDX is highly impressive stuff. It needs to be liberated. Car and Driver
