If you value technology or being noticed, there are probably other better products for you than the 2015 Acura RDX.
The Mercedes-Benz GLK is of a size with the rest of this group, but offers a more mature feel.
The Audi Q5 stands out for its excellent interior quality, choice of fuel-efficient engines, and ride quality.
The Range Rover Evoque, delivers similar performance to the RDX in a slightly more practical package and with a good deal more posh style.
The BMW X3 remains a strong alternative, with an efficient new four-cylinder turbo and an excellent balance of ride quality and handling.
The Volkswagen Tiguan has a turbo four that's easy to live with, but it doesn't have quite as luxurious a sheen as the RDX—this is more of a mass-market model, and priced accordingly.
And one of the mainstays in this group—although it's a half-step larger—is the Lexus RX 350.
It's been around from the start, but it's still the benchmark for luxury crossovers and hits the mark in most respects.
