It’s a vehicle for road adventurers, city cruisers, and anyone who wants to make a bold and stylish statement behind the wheel.

A Much Better Fuel Economy and Performance

There’s a noticeable variance between the EPA-estimates for the Acura RDX and the Cadillac SRX. The *RDX has 20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway, while its RDX AWD trim has 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. For the SRX and its Luxury, Performance, and Premium trims, it’s 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway for FWD, and for AWD (all trims but the Standard), it’s 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for AWD. *The RDX has remote keyless start, and also shines with smoother performance that comes from Sequential SportShift paddles, amplified reactive dampers, and 8.1” ground clearance, which is over one inch more than what the SRX has.

More Luxuriant Features

The details add up, with the Acura RDX being cozier and more distinctive:

  • 2016 Acura RDX: The 2016 RDX provides spacious comfort with 42” front and 38.3” rear legroom, and 58.7” front and 57.2” rear shoulder room, ten-way adjustable driver’s seat, and rear seat adjustable heating/cooling vents. Jewel Eyes® LED headlights and a polished metal grille give it a very distinguished look.
  • 2016 Cadillac SRX: The 2016 SRX has smaller dimensions, with 41.2” front and 36.3” rear legroom, and 58.3” front and 56.3” rear shoulder room, and the driver’s seat only has eight-way positioning. Its silhouette isn’t as streamlined as the RDX, with a grid pattern grille and headlamps typical for many SUVs.

Safety Details that Make a Difference

The RDX is built with Advanced Compatibility Engineering™, which distributes impact energy to minimize occupant trauma and injury, and vehicle damage. The SmartVent™ airbag provides additional protection to the upper chest area, the tensioning belts employ tightening or loosening dependent upon the degree of impact, and the moonroof and windows do not close if an object is sensed between the glass and sill. The Cadillac SRX’s airbag system is not as refined, and its features don’t justify the higher price.
