The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.7

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2021 Acura RDX satisfies sport-sedan drivers and crossover needers alike with strong performance and scads of space. The 2022 Genesis GV70 balances the luxury look and feel with excellent standard features for a less-than-luxury price.
