The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Acura RDX is one of the smoothest, most responsive-driving compact crossover SUVs—even though it prioritizes practicality. Built on Mercedes-Benz roots, the 2017 Infiniti QX30 is an agile and stylish subcompact that toes the line between crossover and hatchback.
