  • Jewel Eye Headlights: These headlights are reminiscent of a diamond band while offering you automatic LED visibility. An LED light strip runs under the headlights for daytime visibility, too.
  • Power Liftgate: When your hands are full, it’s easy to pop open the trunk to load up your cargo when you can simply press a button on the smart key fob to both open and close.
  • 18” Alloy Wheels: Choose some extra stylish wheels with choices that include Black Diamond-Cut design and Silver Diamond-Cut.

Critics Love the Look of the 2017 Acura RDX

Critics have been able to sneak a peek at the 2017 Acura RDX, and they agree with us—this is one striking crossover. With so many features and an attractive design, there’s much value to be had.

  • Edmunds: “There are many reason why the Acura RDX is one of our top picks in the segment. It’s a well-made, well-equipped compact SUV that is a clear, premium step up from the Honda CR-Vs of this world. Its value is undeniable and a must-drive for sensible sorts whose left side of the brain is more influential than the right.”
  • Car and Driver: “The new fascia, with Acura’s now-familiar LED headlight array, adds a little drama to a package that was already about as shapely as it gets in this class.”
  • The Car Connection: “Overall, the styling is sleek, with an attractive profile and pronounced fender arches. The headlights are now a string of five LEDs, lined up in a row like diamonds on a wedding ring. The front-end appearance has become a little less beak-like, and LED front and rear lighting help give this design the right finer touches.”
