GREEN | 6 out of 10
17 mpg city, 22 highway (AWD); 19/24 (FWD)
AWD RDX models averaged 21.2 mpg in mostly highway driving and 14.3-17.6 with more city work
Compared to most other compact crossovers, gas-mileage ratings for the 2012 Acura RDX are unimpressive, and considering its rather small interior, that doesn't make it a very green pick by most accounts.
EPA ratings for the all-wheel-drive RDX stand at 17 mpg city, 22 highway, while the front-wheel-drive model gets 19/24. Pricier premium fuel is strongly recommended, too. And really, these ratings are about on par with many crossover models one size larger.Our last time in an extended drive of the RDX, we averaged 20 mpg in a mix of driving, in an all-wheel-drive model, so it's possible you might do a bit better than those official numbers.
For green or eco-minded shoppers, the 2012 Acura RDX's gas mileage will probably be a turnoff.
