The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.0
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 Lexus NX remains a boldly styled, comfortable compact luxury crossover with solid standard features.
