2015 Acura RDX

Redesigned for 2014, the Acura RDX gets refreshed for 2015 to include a new frame built specifically to absorb collision impacts plus reactive dampers and adaptive steering. In other words unless you’re a stickler for crash test scores and the finer nuances of driving dynamics, you shouldn’t notice any significant changes between the 2015 and 2014 model years and that’s just fine by brand fans.

The 2015 RDX also handles the road well, and thanks to two-stage dampers it stays composed on twisty sections yet easily absorbs potholes and general harshness. It still ranks on the sporty side. but it’s not as crisp as the pre 2013 model, but it’s not as brittle either. The RDX leans a bit in hard corners, then an ingenious new double-piston design engages, increasing damping force and making for a surprisingly capable crossover. Steering feel is a little too light and vague at lower speeds, but the system has a nice weighting at the speeds you’d drive on highways or two-laners.

If you’re shopping for a sensible, well-rounded small luxury crossover SUV with few bad habits, the 2015 Acura RDX is a great place to start. Redesigned just a couple years ago, the RDX starts with a simple, handsome shape free of gimmicks and excess. That same idea translates to its cabin, which despite its wealth of standard equipment, presents straightforward, easy to understand controls, high-quality construction and comfortable seating front and rear.

The 2015 Acura RDX small luxury crossover SUV is available in two trim levels: base and base with Technology package. Front-wheel drive is standard for both trims, with all-wheel drive optional for either the base RDX or RDX with Technology package.

The Acura RDX was completely recast two model years ago as a far more conservative, straight-laced vehicle than its predecessor had been. With it, Acura is no longer seeking young professional males looking for sportiness; instead it’s going for those with kids–and empty-nesters. That edge was tough to see go, and styling is part of it, for sure, as the current RDX is smart inside and out but hardly bold.

On the outside, the RDX is good looking, but it definitely looks less extroverted than it feels behind the wheel—and far more mature than the last-generation model, which is now fading to memory as a bold, original statement, but one that wasn’t as popular as this current model. The shape of the RDX is smooth, and the profile is attractive, punctuated by pronounced fender arches. From the front, the new RDX is at its most muscular, but the somewhat controversial bright ‘beak’ grille is toned down here. More powerful fenders and a standard crossover ride height give a sense of off-road capability, though the RDX is no true SUV–its roofline is low and arched, really more like that of a wagon.

Standard features include 18-inch wheels, heated mirrors, rear privacy glass, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, a sunroof, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated power front seats (eight-way driver, four-way passenger), leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a seven-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, an iPod/USB audio interface and an auxiliary audio jack.

The government gave the RDX a perfect five stars for overall crash protection, with five stars for total frontal impact protection and five stars for total side-impact crash protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the RDX the highest possible score of “Good” in the frontal-offset, side and roof strength crash tests. The RDX’s head restraints and seats also earned a “Good” rating for their whiplash reduction in rear impacts.

The 2015 Acura RDX undercuts BMW and Mercedes in pricing, and offers more value, in terms of features for the money than most vehicles in this class even the Lexus, which is admittedly a half-size up. Dual-zone climate control, cruise control, keyless entry with push-button start, ambient lighting, a seven-speaker sound system with USB/MP3/Auxiliary support, Bluetooth handsfree calling, and more are all standard features. Yet what’s missing are the high-end goodies that most of those other models offer like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and parking assistance.

The 2015 RDX’s 26.1 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats is about the same as most rivals, but folding down the rear seats opens up 61.3 cubic feet of capacity. This is an average amount for a compact luxury crossover — in general, these models aren’t as spacious as non-luxury models such as the Honda CR-V. The RDX offers 4 cubic feet more than the Audi Q5, but 6 less than the class-biggest Volvo XC60.

2015 Acura RDX Engine

The 2015 Acura RDX comes with just one engine and transmission combination: a 3.5-liter V6 with 273 hp and 251 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission sends engine power to either the front wheels or through optional all-wheel drive.

The 2015 RDX bucks trends toward turbocharging and downsizing in favor of a large, 3.5-liter V-6. And although that might seem an odd decision, the V-6 does return a respectable 28 highway with front-wheel drive. From the driver’s seat, the RDX feels peppy, smooth, and strong for everything from urban stop-and-go to rural high-speed passing. Under full throttle, the RDX willingly moves quickly without requiring dramatic multi-gear downshifts from the six-speed automatic (good, because the automatic can be hesitant when you really need it); it also handles the road well, and thanks to two-stage dampers it stays composed on twisty sections yet easily absorbs potholes and general harshness.

The RDX keeps things simple under the hood as well. Whereas many competitors offer two or more engine choices, with turbochargers and four cylinders commonplace, this Acura sticks with one choice: a tried-and-true V6. It isn’t a powerhouse at 273 horsepower, but it’s stout enough to get the RDX from zero to 60 mph in a plenty agreeable 6.5 seconds. The other upside is reasonable fuel economy that’s in the same ballpark as those turbocharged four-cylinder competitors.
