2011 Acura RDX Styling

7.0
Styling

The Acura RDX carries into 2011 with its styling and details essentially unchanged--and that's not a bad thing at all. The RDX has been on sale in the U.S. for four years and has received only a few updates along the way, last year, but it still manages to look fresh.

 

The 2011 Acura RDX looks athletic and attractive, albeit a bit conservative.

The RDX still is a cousin of Honda's CR-V, but styling is just one way in which it's considerably different. It's more sporty, with a more sloping rear end that sacrifices cargo space for the sleek bod. Acura touched up the RDX last year with a new grille, bumpers, new headlights and taillights, new exhaust tips, and metallic trim, as well as 18-inch wheels.

 

The interior is crisp and focused, though a bit conservative. The driver-focused cockpit of the RDX gets new climate controls, ambient lighting, and more metallic trim to accent its high-tech look and complement its leather seats. The instrument panel is sculpted nicely, and has a tiered appearance that's trimmed off with metallic trim and accents that frame a hooded gauge cluster.
