We give the 2021 RDX a seven for functions. In base kind it’s very well-outfitted, and Acura has a fairly prolonged alternatives record. We’re no lovers of its balky infotainment touchpad, which expenses it an further place for otherwise potent infotainment.

The base RDX comes in just beneath $40,000—another $2,000 if you want all-wheel generate. It has energy front seats, leather upholstery, 19-inch wheels, energy functions, a ten.2-inch infotainment display, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. 

An optional $2,900 Engineering Package bundles lots of functions, from blind-location screens and parking sensors to upgraded audio and navigation. We’d pick this RDX, with or with out all-wheel generate, relying on how far north we lived.

For $45,625 the RDX A-Spec provides sporty touches like sueded upholstery, twenty-inch wheels, heated and cooled sport front seats, aluminum trim, and 16-speaker high quality ELS audio. 

The $forty seven,525 RDX Progress provides a cavalcade of luxury touches, from upgraded leather and wood trim, to ELS audio, a head-up display, adaptive dampers, and cooled front seats.

Acura’s menu-intensive, Android-based mostly infotainment operates very well plenty of, but it’s saddled with a touchpad interface that we’d consciously steer clear of by means of Apple CarPlay and prolonged, prolonged, playlists. Touchscreens are one of life’s compromises it’s time for this technique to undertake one.

The Acura guarantee addresses the RDX for four many years or fifty,000 miles.
