The 2022 Acura RDX is part of the third-generation RDX which received a major update in the year 2019. This year RDX receives minor updates in the form of more standard features, slight exterior redesign, a limited-run RDX PMC Edition model, new exterior colors, and more features on each package. While the 2022 RDX still draws power from the 272 hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission, with an available SH-AWD system.
The engine isn't the most efficient or quickest off the line but is rather made for a smooth and comfortable drive experience. Inside, the RDX has a generous cargo capacity and a roomy and premium cabin. Standing against the likes of BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, Volvo XC60, and Audi Q5 all of which might just be a tad bit more luxurious, the Acura RDX undercuts all of them with a much lower starting price of $39,300.
