TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Acura RDX takes a clean-sheet approach to sporty utility, and that makes it the second-best thing in its showroom, apart from the NSX. It’s easy to see why buyers increasingly pick luxury compact crossovers like the 2019 Audi Q5; it’s comfortable and quick with plenty of room. The 2019 BMW X3 is a versatile compact crossover that delivers on rising expectations.
