The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
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 Lexus RX is plush and premium, and it delivers on that luxury impression, but it's not the over-the-top lavish expression some might seek.
