2011 Acura RDX Fuel Economy

6.0
On Fuel Economy
Fuel economy ratings for the 2011 Acura RDX are unimpressive, and its ratings with all-wheel-drive, of 17 mpg city, 22 highway, are on par with luxury crossovers one size larger.

Last year the RDX was first offered in a front-wheel drive model—which costs $2,000 less and gets 2 mpg better both in the city and on the highway, for EPA estimates of 19/24 mpg.

Our editors averaged 20 mpg in a mix of driving, in an all-wheel-drive model, so real-world mileage might be somewhat better than the numbers suggest. But pricier premium fuel is strongly recommended.

The Acura RDX isn't very impressive, from a green standpoint.
