2018 Acura RDX Blue

The team here at Joe Rizza Acura always knew the 2018 Acura RDX would be something special, but even we’ve been stunned by the enthusiastic reviews it has managed to attract. See how the RDX compares to the Lincoln MKC here. From driving behavior to interior features to safety technology, the nation’s most hard-to-please critics have found plenty to love about the new Acura RDX, and we’re sure that drivers around Tinley Park will, too.


“On the road, we’re impressed by the RDX’s quick acceleration, relaxed highway cruising demeanor, precise steering, and composed handling on curvy roads.” –

The 2018 Acura RDX draws its spirited drive from a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque, with a Drive-by-Wire throttle system and available All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control optimizing performance to achieve the kind of dynamic drive responsible for glowing industry reviews. A range of engineering features helps deliver class-leading efficiency, with ratings coming in at up to an impressive 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.*


“The elegant interior is logically laid out, with the numerous user-friendly tech features logically arranged and easy to operate.” –

The interior of the new RDX indulges drivers with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated front seats, 10-way power driver’s seat, and dual-zone climate control as standard, with perforated leather upholstery available. Technology is also impressive, with options including GPS navigation with 8-inch display and 10-speaker ELS Studio premium sound system.


“Excellent crash test scores and a host of collision avoidance tech make the Acura RDX a safe bet.” – The Car Connection
