2016 Acura RDX Refresh Adds Power, Tech and Style – 40 New Photos + Pricing by Trim

2015 Acura RDX

The quick and nimble Acura RDX is fresh for 2016 with new LED lighting front and rear, a server of new active safety technology and a redesigned cabin control stack. Now majoring on touchscreens and simplified settings, the 2016 RDX’s standard 3.5-liter V6 will compete even more effectively with the Lexus NX, BMW X3, Lincoln MKC, Mercedes GLK and a half-dozen other five-seat, semi-compact SUVs and crossovers.

This segment is definitely not the small or compact SUV norm– these luxury models are big and wide, with roomy rear seats. They are small enough for city duty and most travel, but with five seats they are best for yuppies versus growing families.

A crossover between mid-size and compact… crossovers….?

Whatever you call them, an RDX-sized SUV sounds about right for most shoppers.
