The SUV You Need: Acura RDX

The 2023 Acura RDX is a luxury compact SUV that outshines for its versatility, assembly quality and well-appointed interior. But it’s also much more than that. Let’s discover its technical sheet for an informed choice.


Versions and Price

Unlike many other vehicles in its class, the RDX Acura comes in two versions. The German manufacturer therefore advocates simplicity and favors a choice between two versions rather than presenting you with seven or eight where the choice then becomes more difficult.

Version

Acura RDX starting price

Acura RDX A-Spec

$57,395

Acura RDX Platinum Elite A-Spec

$62,795

Both versions can count on a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that transmits 272 horsepower and a generous 280 lb-ft of torque. With this mill, you will do 0-100 km/h in 7.0 seconds and 80-120 km/h recoveries in only 5.5 seconds. This engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and all models come with all-wheel drive (AWD).

In terms of combined fuel consumption, the 2023 Acura RDX for sale boasts 10.1 L/100 km, which gives it a good position in its class. Other luxury SUVs are much more fuel efficient.

A Distinctive Cabin

Like all other vehicles of the German brand, the luxury SUV offers you comfort and refinement. The Acura RDX interior allows you to admire elements that catch the eye. Speaking of this cabin, Louis-Philippe Dubé, in Le Guide de l’auto 2024, describes it as follows:

It brings together a multitude of elements that we love. As a result, occupants enjoy excellent comfort, with well-thought-out seats for long journeys and segment-astonishing lateral support.”

The driver’s seat is well laid out and the dashboard board is user-friendly. You will also enjoy good storage space. Moreover, the RDX 2023 benefits from a generous utility volume, probably one of the most generous in its segment. We’ll talk about that later.

Finally, it is important to note that the cabin is well soundproofed, allowing exchanges without noise that would come from the outside.

Dimensions and Utility Volume

This luxury SUV is ideal in the city and on the road. Its size predisposes him to play as much on the highway as on urban boulevards.

A Technological and Safe SUV

If the RDX is welcoming and efficient, it is also technological. Benoit Charrette, in L’Annuel de l’automobile 2024, writes:

There is also a full suite of standard driver aids, which is a notable highlight in a class where such features are often on the options list.”

Among the driver assistance systems, we can list the following:

  • Traffic sign recognition

  • Head-up display

  • Impact reduction braking system

  • Forward collision warning system

  • Automatic front and rear emergency braking at low speeds

  • Lane departure warning system

  • Lane departure mitigation system

  • And much more.

Technologically speaking, the RDX can count on:

  • Touchpad

  • 16-speaker ELS Studio Premium audio system (A-Spec and Platinum Éliite A-Spec)

  • Acura voice navigation

  • Real-time traffic

  • Alexa

  • Phone app to control certain Acura Link vehicle functions

  • And more

In short, technological equipment and driving assistance features are numerous and useful. You will enjoy testing it and driving safely.
