BMW, Mercedes, and some other luxury automakers have more brand cachet, but the 2019 Acura RDX crossover has enough style and substance to compete with rivals from these brands. It’s a bold claim, but there is an argument to be made for lusting after the RDX over more expensive German competitors.
The RDX has been been extensively redesigned with a lighter, more rigid body and a re-engineered chassis. It also receives a new 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine that produces a whopping 272 hp.

In our First Drive review, we said the RDX is “cool, collected, self-assured, and unflappable.” Admittedly, it’s not the crossover with the most raw emotion, but there is beauty in its precision. “Most customers like the somewhat disconnected performance Audi trades on, and it’s easy to see where Acura set its benchmarks (Audi Q5, BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, and Volvo XC60),” we wrote. “Anyone can get in an RDX and comfortably and confidently drive very quickly.”
