The stylish interior is designed logically, with many easy to use, logically organized and easy to use technology features. The reasonable price of the 2018 Acura RDX undermines many competitors, as does its excellent resale history. The 2018 Acura RDX is not a true SUV off-road. If you’re looking for something more rugged, a Land Rover Discovery Sport or Evoque is the best choice. Those looking for better fuel economy from an alternative powertrain can use the Lexus NX 300h Hybrid or the BMW X3 xDrive 28d diesel.
Exterior and Interior
This new 2018 Acura RDX can be classified in a small category of SUV, but it will certainly be at the limit of this category because it is larger than before. This is the obvious influence of its larger parent called MDX. The first thing you’ll notice in the new 2018 Acura RDX is its big Jewel Eye headlights that look more than brilliant. Although they are thinner than before, they are even more effective and amazing. Apart from this small difference, we can not see other iconic changes to the new 2018 Acura RDX. It will still be recognizable, just a little bigger than before. They will place it on alloy wheels of 17.0 inches, which will make it more elegant than before. Both bumpers will also experience minor changes. The front will have larger fans, while the rear will have larger exhaust pipes at the edges. The exterior color options will be numerous and only the sky is the limit in terms of creativity.
As the new 2018 Acura RDX will be larger than before, you’ll know that this time there will be more space for passengers. This is how passengers will enjoy the trip to the new 2018 Acura RDX more than ever. Apart from this, the load space will also increase. It is announced that the seats will be updated, but so far it is only confirmed that the first row will receive refreshments. This time, they will receive better support from the teams, while more than 10 types of adjustments can be made. The dashboard will surely be completed with fewer buttons than ever before. This means that most orders will be transferred to the larger touch screen in between. With this new 2018 Acura RDX, it will become one of the most modern SUVs on the market. The steering wheel will also be complemented by new features and most controls will be available with voice commands allowing drivers to stay strictly on the road.
Right now, Acura officials want to unveil just one engine unit for this great SUV. It will be the 3.5 liter V6 that has a lot of hidden power. This engine can produce 279 horsepower and a maximum torque of 252 lb/ft, which will be more than enough for the new 2018 Acura RDX. This engine will be associated with a 6 speed automatic transmission that has already proven itself. Of course, the traction mode on the front wheels will be basic, but you can make it available in four wheel drive if you pay a little more. It will be the difference in fuel consumption too. When you drive it to FWD, it will be 20/28 mpg in city / highway and when you drive it in 4×4 it will be 19/27 mpg in city/highway.
Price and Release Date
The 2018 Acura RDX base has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of approximately $ 36,800, including a base fee of $ 975. AWD adds about 1,500 USD and AcuraWatch 1,300 USD. The maximum amount you will pay is approximately $ 46,000, which is a good deal for such a well equipped vehicle. We think it’s a good idea to spend an additional $ 1,300 on the AcuraWatch package because it provides great convenience and security for a relatively small amount. At these prices, a new 2018 Acura RDX beats almost all of its competitors, with the exception of the Infiniti QX30 and the Lincoln MKC. The Volvo XC60 and the Infiniti QX50 are on the same ground and the Germans can be $ 15,000 higher when loaded.
