KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Matt Degen - Updated Date: 4/29/2014


The 2015 Acura RDX is a rare example of a smaller SUV that does almost everything right. It adeptly plays in the premium segment, yet boasts a modest character, a strong-yet-efficient V6, and a long list of standard equipment. Available in front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), Acura's 5-passenger luxury SUV offers generous cargo space and desirable creature comforts such as standard leather and commute-easing ergonomics. While the RDX offers a top-notch optional audio system, it lacks the highly advanced infotainment and preventive safety systems such as blind-spot monitoring available in rivals like the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK Class and Audi Q5. Still, the RDX stands out with its near- and long-term value, and Acura's impressive history of reliability.

You'll Like This Car If...

The 2015 RDX is the ideal choice if you want a luxury SUV but not the sticker shock and questionable reliability that can be associated with one. Above-average resale value and Acura's reputation for quality add further peace of mind.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you want your compact SUV to behave more like a sports sedan, the BMW X3 or Infiniti QX50 might be a better fit. Desire a higher-mileage diesel SUV? That can also be found in the X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK or Audi Q5. Off-road types should look to Land Rover's offerings.

What's New for 2015

There are no major changes for the 2015 Acura RDX, which is only in its second year as an all-new, 2nd-gen model.

Driving It Driving Impressions

True to its modest nature, the 2015 Acura RDX doesn't exactly position itself as a rocket. Yet it exceeded our expectations in terms of initial acceleration and passing power. The standard V6 idles smoother and pulls harder than the 4-cylinder turbocharged engines found in the Audi Q5 and Land Rover LR2, and there's a sport mode when more oomph is needed. Just as impressive is this 2-row SUV's solid and secure ride quality. Combined with its easy maneuverability, quiet cabin and comfortable driver's seat, the RDX is an exceptional partner for trips long or short.

Favorite Features

ACURA/ELS SURROUND SOUND
While it's comprised of a comparatively low speaker count, the available Acura/ELS sound system is one of the best factory-installed sound systems money can buy. Speaking of which, the Acura/ELS setup is also remarkably affordable for a system of this caliber.

MULTI-VIEW CAMERA
Unlike traditional backup cameras, the RDX employs a versatile Multi-view camera system for a more comprehensive view from behind the vehicle. Choose from the basic default mode, a wide angle 170 degree setting, or a unique top-down view, which comes in handy when parallel parking or lining up a trailer.
