Crossovers have gained an incredible pace in terms of sales as well as advancement in terms of technologies. A steady wave of demand and the buying pattern of consumers have propelled this particular segment of automobiles to have a booming development. Primarily since Americans absolutely love SUVs of different shapes and sizes, it was relatively easier for the car makers to design and manufacture crossovers that are big on utility, practicality, and affordability as well. Since there are luxury versions of almost every type of vehicle out there, the crossovers also have the same and luxury crossovers are brilliant too since they offer even more value for a higher price as compared to any other segment. Almost all the big and popular car brands across the world are into making crossovers and the ones that rank higher include Toyota, Honda, General Motors, Hyundai, and Nissan. Now, luxury crossovers might not have a similar sales volume to a regular crossover yet names such as the Acura RDX, the BMW X3, and the Volvo XC60 are quite popular and have seen plenty of takers as well.
Coming to the Acura RDX, it is the second luxury crossover offering from the luxury brand of Honda and initially shared the same platform with none other than the CR-V. Since its launch in 2006, it has gone through more than a couple of generation upgrades and sits in its third-gen model now since 2019. By adding the RDX to its portfolio, Acura proved its mettle in making luxurious vehicles even though the enthusiasts out there absolutely love the brand that gave us the NSX. The 2022 Acura RDX arrived with some updates such as a reworked exterior styling, improved NVH levels, an increased number of safety techs, and more exterior colors. Under the hood, the vehicle gets the same turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 motor that is capable of generating a maximum of 272 horsepower along with 280 lb-ft of torque. The luxury crossover finds the BMW X3, the Audi Q5, and the Volvo XC60 as its prime rivals in its segment.
