The re­designed Acura RDX rides on its own Acura-spe­cific plat­form and con­tin­ues the mar­que’s march in the per­for­mance di­rec­tion. Se­nior editor Aaron

Gold got a taste of the new RDX and had this to say: “From a driver’s per­spec­tive, the new RDX is quite good. Han­dling is a high point; the sea­soned sedan driv­ers Acura seeks will find the RDX’s steady ride, medi­umweight heft, and lack of body roll to be ut­terly fa­mil­iar. In an era when most SUVs drive just like cars, the RDX man­ages to be slightly more car­like than its com­peti­tors.” The RDX’s mo­ti­va­tion is sup­plied by a 2.0-liter turbo-four rated at 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque paired with an im­pres­sive 10-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. There are big changes in­side as well, most notably a gen­er­ous 10.2-inch dis­play con­trolled by what Acura calls the True Touch­pad In­ter­face mounted on the cen­ter con­sole, and buy­ers are treated to a whole host of driver-as­sist sys­tems.
