  • Acura at the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

    Fresh from its world debut in March at the 2018 New York auto show, Acura's redesigned 2019 RDX will be among the vehicles racing to the clouds in this year's Pike Peak International Hill Climb. The Japanese firm won't be running a completely stock RDX, though. Competing in the Exhibition Class, the vehicle will feature performance upgrades that we could see in Acura's lineup at a later date. One of these is a mild hybrid system using recovered energy to power an electric compressor for the RDX's 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4. Thanks to the electric compressor and an enlarged turbo, the...

    2019 Acura RDX adds to brand's SUV momentum

    Acura hasn't had success with its sedans in recent years, but the SUVs have carried the brand. Judging by the looks of the 2019 Acura RDX, that trend will continue. We saw the RDX prototype in January in Detroit, and the production model unveiled at the 2018 New York auto show on Wednesday is...

    2013 Acura RDX first drive review

    If you've driven the previous Acura RDX, you know the definition of compromise. While it was, in many ways, ahead of its time, the RDX was rough, balky, and awkward as much as it was peppy, fun, and high-tech. Times have changed. The 2013 Acura RDX doesn't look all that much different from the last...

    Conservative as it is, the 2013 RDX might also be the best-looking vehicle in Acura's lineup--that is, until the NSX returns. Wearing the Iron Beak grille in a completely non-ironic and non-ugly way, the new RDX blends simple shapes, restrained details, and good crossover proportions. These live...

  • 2013 Acura RDX

    Just a month ago, the 2013 Acura RDX Concept was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show. Today, ahead of its official debut at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show, Acura has lifted the veil on the production version. As you might expect, it is very similar to the concept. As the second generation of Acura's compact five-passenger crossover, the RDX carries forward its predecessor's basic size and demeanor, but with some important changes to powertrain, suspension, and design. The design changes aren't dramatic, however. In fact, there's nothing dramatic about the 2013 RDX; quite the opposite...
