Last year, we reviewed the 2019 Acura MDX, a powerhouse of a midsized crossover with a lot of drive appeal. The Acura RDX has the same wonderful lines and A-Spec package goodness, but is smaller and thus faster. Small does not mean cramped, though, but faster definitely means.. Well, faster.
Luxury sport utilities are a mix of fun and posh. Depending on who you ask and what model you’re looking at. Acura definitely trends towards the fun side, with excellent drive dynamics and a fast pace as the primary goal. Proof of this is presented as soon as one enters the RDX in the form of the very prominent drive mode knob on the center console.
