Expert Quotes:

With standard leather, as well as heated front seats with a memory function the interior hits all the premium benchmarks.
AutoGuide

The RDX is well equipped at its starting price, but if you get the urge to splurge, the Technology Package adds navigation, a killer audio system, a power liftgate, and a few other extra style and convenience way-up upgrades.
Kelley Blue Book

Cubby count is up, button count is down, and stand­ard techno-gadgets abound.
Car and Driver

Paddle shifters are perfectly located on the steering wheel but emit an annoying and unnecessary metallic click with each shift.
AutoWeek

The center console isn't as expansive as before (the previous RDX center console could swallow a sizable laptop computer whole), but a covered cubby contains both the USB audio input and 12-volt power outlet, and keeps devices tethered to either tucked out of sight.
Automobile

Compared to most other luxury crossovers in the compact-to-mid-size category, the 2014 Acura RDX offers just a little bit more for the money in its standard form--for a lower base price than the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, or Lexus RX 350.

Whether ordered with front- or all-wheel drive, the RDX comes standard with perforated leather seats, a CD/USB/iPod/satellite radio audio system, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, pushbutton ignition, Bluetooth handsfree connectivity, and a multi-view rearview camera.

The only significant upgrade in the lineup is the Technology Package. That includes navigation with real-time traffic and weather, a 410-watt Acura/ELS surround sound system (which our editors highly recommend), voice recognition, remote power-operated liftgate, GPS-linked climate control, and Xenon HID headlights.

What's missing, even with the Technology Package, are leading edge tech items--things like radar adaptive cruise control, night vision, and pedestrian detection.

Conclusion

The 2013 RDX delivers lots of bang for the buck—although it's missing some of the high-tech gadgets.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
