The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Acura RDX improves on the sporty crossover theme with refined ride quality, more features, and better fuel economy. The 2013 Buick Encore does nearly everything a pint-sized premium crossover should do--minus a few dozen horsepower, that is.
