Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com found little to complain about in the luxury crossover design of the 2008 Acura RDX.
The 2008 Acura RDX receives high praise for continuing Acura's knack for producing attractive cars. MyRide.com points out that it stays "true to Acura's styling DNA." Kelley Blue Book enjoys the exterior hints of power under the hood, citing "18-inch wheels, a raked version of the familiar five-point grille, dual-outlet exhaust and a 'turbo' badge on the back" as welcome additions. Cars.com thinks its "manageable dimensions" are a big plus.
In terms of overall appearance, MyRide.com thinks it's "not exactly sexy" and definitely "more athletic than aggressive." Auto Spectator matches this description by using adjectives such as "compact" and "sporty" when talking about the Acura RDX. Kelley Blue Book notes its tailgate "is integrated into the rear bumper", a detail that gives it a "smoother look."
Inside, the RDX's "gauges are well-lit" according to Cars.com. ConsumerGuide throws in its two cents says its climate and audio controls have "undersized readouts in a distant dashtop slit." Edmunds says the cockpit is "considerably more upscale" than SUVs in its class.
