What’s New?

The 2016 Acura RDX is a 2-row SUV and is a clear example of the abilities of Acura. It is driver centered, with a crisp feel, and a modern cabin and there are also several luxury amenities. Here’s the kicker; it’s also practical and fuel-efficient. While value is not always something you getting in a luxury car, the RDX boasts one of the best standard equipment in its class.

Exterior Features

Design modifications to the 2016 RDX include a standard redesigned grille, LED headlights and taillights, and refreshed front and rear bumpers having an emerging trapezoidal Acura-styling cue. 18″ aluminum-wheel styles are also available, including an optional styling with a diamond-cut varnish. The RDX comes available in 7 different colors including crystal black pearl, and basque red pearl ii.

Interior Features

Updates to the cabin of RDX include fresh rear air vents for rear-seat passengers and also a standardized power tailgate. Currently, leather seats are no longer standard and therefore only included in the Advance and Technology option packages.

Driving the 2016 Acura RDX is a 3.5-liter V6 engine which puts out 279 horsepower. A 6-speed automatic transmission is also standard. According to the EPA, the RDX earns up to 20/29 MPG city/highway which is typical for its class.
