This smaller luxury crossover SUV combines a smooth ride with a strong engine and responsive handling. It balances this performance with a quiet, roomy interior and refined styling. The 2017 RDX is an excellent choice for any driver looking for an upscale SUV at a great price.
The 2017 Acura RDX’s 3.5-liter V-6 engine puts out a robust 279 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque, more than enough to deliver a satisfying and immediate response at nearly all speeds. Its relatively small size translates to nimble handling and excellent maneuverability in tight spaces. The overall effect of this well thought out and balanced design is that the RDX is always a pleasure to drive.
The interior of the 2017 Acura RDX reflects the design philosophy of combining luxury and sport. The cabin is both spacious and quiet, and the second row features an abundance of legroom to accommodate even the tallest passengers comfortably. The seats are stylish, comfortable, and five adults can sit easily without discomfort. The rear seats can be folded down to open up an astonishing 61.3 cubic feet of storage room.
The 2017 Acura RDX comes with front-wheel drive as the standard powertrain option, with all-wheel drive optional. It comes in only one trim package, but it offers three options packages and a number of standalone safety and luxury options.
• The AcuraWatch Plus package features additional safety features like automatic braking and collision warning systems.
• The technology package adds a ten-speaker sound system, a navigation system, and a number of other tech controls
• The top of the line Advance Package includes everything from the two above packages, and adds other luxuries like front and rear parking sensors and remote sensors.
All the expected safety options, such as antilock brakes, traction control, and a full airbag system, come standard on the 2017 RDX. It also offers a number of additional safety systems as options, from collision warning to lane-departure intervention. The 2017 RDX was awarded the full five stars from the US government for total crash protection, and five stars for both front and side-impact safety.
Despite having a decent-sized V-6 engine, the RDX is still able to achieve a respectable level of fuel economy. It rates at 28 mpg on the highway, and 20 mpg within the city with its standard front-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive only lowers the gas mileage slightly, to 27 mpg highway and 19 mpg city.
While a crossover SUV will never beat a smaller coupe or sedan in gas mileage, the 2017 RDX shouldn’t discourage any potential drivers worried about cost at the pump.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Acura RDX invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Acura RDX MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
