Expert Quotes:

Acura RDX AWD: 19 mpg city, 27 highway

Acura RDX FWD: 20 mpg city, 28 highway
U.S. EPA




The 2014 Acura RDX only comes with one engine: a 3.5-liter V-6. That doesn't sound like the recipe for segment-leading fuel economy, and it isn't. But for its power and purpose, the RDX's fuel economy ratings aren't bad.

The front-wheel drive model achieves 20 mpg city, 28 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined, while the all-wheel drive model is estimated at 19 mpg city, 27 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. That's about on par with other luxury crossovers--although not quite as good as the BMW X3 with its turbo four, for instance.

Beyond that, you don't have any other option for the RDX; as of yet, at least, there's no hybrid, and the diesel engine that Acura had been teasing a few years ago (which would have been perfect for this model) never arrived.

 

Conclusion

The 2014 Acura RDX is is mid-pack for a luxury crossover this size, but with its V-6 it does pack a lot of punch per gallon.

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.
