Product Overview

Acura RDX 3 (chassis code TC1/2) is a mid-size crossover in production since 2019. It is available with a single turbocharged inline-4 engine that displaced 2.0 liters.
An evolution of the Mk2 RDX, some may argue that the Mk3 RDX is uglier, thanks to its gaping front grille. From other angles, it is also a busier evolution of the Mk2.
Unfortunately, the V6 is gone, and a new 10-speed automatic transmission has been introduced. Both changes are presumed to improve fuel efficiency, though one has to question the longevity of this setup.
As usual, the RDX is a crossover set up for on-road comfort rather than taking on rough terrains.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The 2019 Acura RDX is a good-looking, comfortable, sprightly and value-priced entry. Acura's True Touchpad Interface is intuitive in that the touchpad on the center console acts as a touchscreen. An extra $5,000 to $10,000 in checking account can buy a lot of right-brain satisfaction.

The 2021 Acura RDX starts at $39,225 including its $1,025 destination charge. The standard MacPherson strut front and multilink rear suspension is comfortable and responsive. The electric power steering is nice and linear and the 12-inch disc brakes at all four corners are easy to modulate.
