The Second Generation Acura RDX 2015 Review

The 2015 Acura RDX is the third edition of the second generation luxury crossover and it’s better than ever. The now familiar sporty design is there, largely unchanged…and for good reason. The 2013 RDX introduced the newest generation and the 2014 RDX refined that introduction.

This SUV/Crossover comes equipped with the dependable 6 cylinder, 3.5 engine and still sports a more than enough 273 horsepower. Now well established and very competitive in its class, this model has all but made its place in the must have crossover field.

Sporty. That’s just the word that comes to mind when you take in the RDX’s design and look. You know it’s an SUV but your eyes, and your gut, tell you that it’s so much more.

There’s obviously plenty of room, plenty of “utility”, but the custom wheels, the spoiler, the sharply tapered front all let you know that you are in for some fun too. No minivan or boxy wagon here…just the unmistakable Acura luxury and build that drivers and families have come to love.

2015 RDX Interior Changes

Sit down. Buckle up. Look around. You know you’re in an Acura right away. From the leather seats and tasteful trim to the amenities that are now expected from a premier auto maker, it all just feels so elegant. Your legs have plenty of room and you have more seat adjustment options than you will probably ever need.

That legroom extends to your passengers too so all five of you will be comfortable. Look all the way in the back and you’ll find more cargo space than you thought possible in a mid size crossover. Keep looking and you’ll find what seems like a never ending list of features.

  • Heated mirrors
  • Bucket seats
  • Heated seats and backs
  • Premium sound system
  • Plenty of storage
  • On demand technology for weather updates, navigation, and more

Luxury and quality are evident no matter where you look as you settle in and feel the Acura difference. You’ve heard the term, “fine automobile”…well now you know what it means with the 2015 RDX. Now push the button and listen to the engine fire up!

Performance Features

There’s a lot of numbers that add up to the ride you feel when you take to the highway in this year’s RDX. Numbers like 6…as in V6 and 6 gears. 24…as in valves. 273…as in horsepower. The acceleration is fluid and the shifting smooth thanks to the sequential sport shifting. The traction control and electronic stability give you confidence as you speed up and take the next curve. Eventually you’ll have to stop, even if you don’t want to, and the ABS brakes with brake assist make that part easy. Don’t worry though, you can take it for another spin with the push of a button!
