2013 Acura RDX AWD: First Look


Here’s a first look at the latest Ride of the Week, the 2013 Acura RDX AWD.

This second generation of Acura’s popular 5-passenger crossover SUV not only looks different from its predecessor, it’s significantly updated underneath its bodywork, too. Its predecessor used a four-cylinder turbocharged engine; the latest RDX packs a new, 273-horsepower V6 and a standard 6-speed automatic transmission. The new engine and transmission yield both better performance and improved fuel economy. The front-wheel drive version of the latest RDX is EPA-rated at 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. The outgoing model, produced for model years 2007 through 2012, topped out at 19 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

All-wheel drive remains an option, and our loaded test vehicle includes the feature. That brings fuel economy down to 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway, still respectable in the 5-passenger crossover segment. The RDX is richly equipped with leather seats, a moonroof, keyless entry with push-button start, Bluetooth and heated, power-adjustable front seats. Our test vehicle also includes Acura’s optional Technology package that adds navigation, a backup camera, AcuraLink telematics, a 10-speaker sound system with a hard drive, GPS-linked dual-zone climate control, a power liftgate and xenon headlights.

Aside from its new engine and transmission, the 2013 Acura RDX also benefits from improved ride and handling thanks to a lower, wider stance and a longer wheelbase. New adaptive dampers help to soak up the bumps, and electric power steering provides better efficiency than the old hydraulic unit.

The base, front-wheel drive RDX is priced at $34,320 excluding destination. The bottom line for the top-trim test vehicle, a 2013 Acura RDX AWD with Technology Packge, is $40,315 including an $895 destination charge.
