The 2018 Acura RDX enters the new model year with few major changes.
Acura RDX Trims and Features
Like other Acura models, the 2018 RDX comes in one main trim with an array of optional packages for optimal customization. The base RDX is equipped with a rearview camera with three selectable views, a keyless entry system, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power moonroof, and power liftgate for easy cargo loading. Standard tech includes a 5-inch infotainment display with satellite radio and a seven-speaker sound system.
The AcuraWatch Plus package is the one to choose if you want advanced driver assistance features. It includes a collision warning system with automatic braking, lane keep assistance, and automatic cruise control.
The Technology package includes a range of upgrades like real leather upholstery, cushioned sport seats, and a climate control system that automatically adjusts the car's temperature based on your GPS location. As for tech, it adds an eight-inch touchscreen that's paired with the smaller display, a 10-speaker audio system, upgraded multimedia interface, navigation, and voice recognition. You'll also enjoy enhanced safety thanks to rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot monitoring.
The Advance package is available for RDX drivers who purchase both of the other packages. You'll enjoy all those amenities plus climate-controlled front seats, front and rear safety sensors, smart windshield wipers, fog lights, and auto-dimming rearview mirrors.
The cabin of the Acura RDX benefits from generous passenger space, sumptuous faux leather upholstery, and heated front seats. Up to five adults can comfortably ride in the RDX, making it ideal if you often drive with full-size passengers or have tall teens in your family. LATCH connectors for three child safety seats are included. The RDX has just over 26 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to more than 61 cubic feet with the seats folded flat.
2018 Acura RDX drivers will appreciate the power of the 279-horsepower V6 engine, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission to provide a refined, sedan-like ride. You'll get an EPA-estimated 20 city/29 highway miles per gallon with the standard front-wheel drive and one mpg less in each category if you opt for all-wheel drive. Reviewers note the comfortable steering, strong brakes, and composed suspension.
The crash test scores of the 2018 Acura RDX are among the best in the class. It has been named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the agency's highest designation. It also earned a five-star overall rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration.
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.
