2021 Acura RDX Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide

Updated on: August 29, 2020

Among the crop of crossover SUVs, the 2021 Acura RDX stands out for its high-tech features, sharp looks, and potent turbocharged engine. Its Acura badge lacks the panache of rivals such as Audi Q5 and BMW X3, but the RDX offers a comparable build quality at a cheaper price.

A blend of a 272-hp 4-cylinder turbocharged engine and 10-speed automatic transmission enriches the Acura RDX with significant grunt balanced by a pleasant fuel economy. It was completely redesigned in 2019, and a year after the all-new RDX appeared, it became the best-selling model in the company’s lineup and the third best-selling luxury vehicle among all premium models in America.

Expert Review

Overall Rating


The RDX is available in four trim levels—base, Technology, A-Spec, and Advance—which Acura calls packages. Acura’s concepts are often moulded into production vehicles and they have already announced the RDX Type S, it will arrive with a wider stance, new exterior, and interior features. All-wheel drive is a $2,000 option and safety-wise, the RDX earned top marks from the IIHS and an overall five-star rating from the NHTSA.

2021 Acura RDX Features

8.5/10

Like all other Acuras, the 2021 RDX is an individual model that can be equipped with various packages. On top of the base vehicle, buyers can add Technology, A-Spec, and Advance packages. The A-Spec package sounds like it might be a performance upgrade, but it is disappointingly a purely cosmetic package.

Every RDX is equipped with an identical powertrain, a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that puts out 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and SH all-wheel drive is a stand-alone option for $2,000 extra.

The Base versions are well-equipped with several features that are optional on competitors. The AcuraWatch suite of driver aids is standard. You also get heated/12-way power-adjustable front seats smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay smartphone integration (still no Android Auto), a 10.2-inch display, and a 9-speaker/350-watt premium audio system.

The Technology package is worth having, as it brings blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, front/rear parking sensors, navigation with real-time traffic updates, and a highly rated 12-speaker ELS audio system.

The most recognizable RDX models have the A-Spec package, which adds exclusive upgrades inside and out, such as 20-inch wheels and red interior accents. You also get heated/ventilated front seats, LED fog lights, plus four more speakers for the ELS audio. 

The Advance package adds a head-up display, active dampers, 360-degree camera system, 16-way power-adjustable front seats, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, hands-free tailgate operation, and acoustic front side glass. If you’ve got the budget, the RDX Advance is a nice reward. 

Also, the 2021 Acura RDX Type S is approved by officials. All of the exterior features are larger than on the base model. Moreover, the interior offers a more comprehensive dashboard and more premium details. 

2021 Acura RDX Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

You want a well-rounded package with an outstanding record for reliability and great resale value. The Acura RDX clearly responds to that classification, while combining plenty of features as standard, at costs that are threatening for the other rivals. 

Reliability and Ownership costs

The Acura RDX, by trusted reliability sources, has been awarded a rating of 4.5 on a scale of 5, which is majestic and talks a lot about Honda's trustworthiness. The RDX is rated very favourably by JD Power and gets 75 on a scale of 100. The car scores 72/100 in terms of resale. The 2021 Acura RDX gets an overall consumer verified score of 75/100 in the JD Power ratings.

Furthermore, The RDX hasn't had any recalls issued for its 2020 model year from the NHTSA, which tells about the car's quality and reliability standards. 

The 2021 Acura RDX's starting price of $38,200 is cheaper than any vehicle in the segment. It only comes in one trim, but several packages can increase the cost to about $46,000. Following are the average prices you can expect in some major states:

State

Price

Arizona

$39,487

California

$39,349

Florida

$39,953

Washington

$39,626

New York

$39,879

In terms of ownership costs, the RDX will cost you nearly $6,116 for five years based on the estimate that the car will be driven for 15,000 miles every year. The costs remain high in the first year of ownership but reduce by almost half in the subsequent years.

2021 Acura RDX Warranty

Acura backs the RDX with a four-year/50,000-mile warranty and a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty.

However, there is no complimentary scheduled maintenance, which rivals offer. However, Acura RDX has the best emergency repairs warranty package. It provides superior powertrain warranty in comparison with its competitors like Audi Q5 and BMW X3.

  • 50,000 miles/ 4 years (whatever comes first)- General warranty
  • 70,000 miles/ 6 years (whatever comes first)- Powertrain warranty
  • 100,000 miles/ 8 years (whatever comes first)- Time period warranty

Miles per dollar Costs for the 2021 Acura RDX

For every mile you’ll make in your MDX, you’ll be shelling out $3.2. This price is still favourable compared with the European competition, especially when they’re equipped to the same levels.

2021 Acura RDX Buying Advice

Much of the RDX's appeal ensues in its value. As such, we think the Technology Package is the direction to proceed. It adds niceties like genuine leather upholstery, as well as safety features like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. You should also think of taking the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, which enhances traction in damp weather and slightly improves the RDX's handling expertise.

Is buying a used Acura RDX a good idea? 

The RDX was redesigned for the 2019 model year and 2021 will be the second year of its redesign. We suggest continuing with the 2020 or 2019 RDX because it's nearly identical to the upcoming iteration, and it likely will cost a few hundred dollars more. A 2018-or-2017 RDX will cost even less, but these models don't profit from the redesign.

2021 Acura RDX Engine and Performance

9.0/10

The sole Engine in the 2021 RDX is a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder producing 272 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 280 lb.-ft. around 4,500 rpm, which is far better than opponents. A 10-speed automatic transmission drives the front wheels as standard or an optional Acura's Super Handling - AWD system.

2021 Acura RDX SUV has 2L Engine

The turbocharged Engine gives mighty potential at lower rpm's to get you off from stoplights promptly, and the transmission is skilled at selecting the right gear for every circumstance. Acura's parent company, Honda, knows how to create an engaging powertrain, which is primarily shared with the  Civic Type R. Not meant for track-hankering in the first place, the RDX does very well what it's supposed to do.

The turbocharged Engine did make the RDX sound more like the NSX, and the high pitched road is artificially piped into the cabin by the audio system's speakers. The RDX's costlier opponents fell short of the power and torque figures; finally, the Germans lost a fight against Japanese. Volvo XC 60 is not too far away from the rivals.

2021 Acura RDX Acceleration and Braking performance

Acura's better low-end torque means that it's zippier around town. Channelling the power through a 10-speed automatic transmission, the Acura RDX can scout to 60 mph in just 6.4 seconds and decimate the quarter-mile under 14 seconds.

2021 Acura RDX SUV covers 0-60 in 6.4 sec

The brakes spur confidence thanks to predicted action and great feel. Still, the full stopping power is as reliable as (in some cases, better than) the competition. When you drive around turns, there's not much body roll. You'll want SH-AWD to maximize the RDX's sporting potential as it helps the RDX power out of turns.

The Acura RDX is fastest among opponents when it comes to dashing from 0 to 60 while the Audi Q5 takes the second spot. The BMW X3 is two-tenth of a second quicker than the rivals while the Volvo XC 60 stands at last.

2021 Acura RDX Fuel Economy

7.1/10

Mediocre fuel economy is a typical trait of both large and turbocharged crossover SUVs. With front-wheel drive, the RDX gets 22 mpg city, 28 highway, 24 combined. The All-wheel-drive models come in at 21/27/23 mpg. 

The A-Spec chops one mpg off of the highway figure due to its larger 20-inch wheels. The engine also has a stop/start feature to save a little fuel while idling. Premium gasoline is recommended.

The RDX offers a combined fuel economy of 25 mpg which is pretty decent for a car of this size and in this category. Amidst ample attention on efficiency and daily driveability, all the vehicles in the race offer somewhat similar mpg figures, as expected though. The BMW X3 puts out between 25 and 26 mpg combined, but most other rivals are closer to 23 or 24 mpg combined. 

2021 Acura RDX Interior

8.0/10

Move inside the RDX A-Spec's cabin, and you'll be surprised with the attention to detail when it comes to fit-and-finish. A well-formed dashboard creates a friendly space for front-seat passengers. The design is governed by a rotary drive-mode selector that moves into a floating centre console. Adhering with the typical 2-row/5-seater formula suggests the Acura RDX can offer lots of space for travellers and their luggage.

2021 Acura RDX SUV Dashboard

Base RDXs have comfortable, power-adjustable front seats upholstered in synthetic leather. The same thrones are covered in leather in Technology, and A-Spec trims. The RDX's rear seats aren't as impressive, with a flat bottom cushion lacking in support and hard seatbacks that are too reclined.

The rear seats fold flat at the tug of a lever to grow cargo space from 29.5 cubic feet to 58.9 cubes. A nearly two cubic-foot storage bin is tucked out of the way under the cargo floor for items such as jumper cables or a snow brush. The amount of head, shoulder, and legroom is great, and even tall passengers wouldn't have any problem in accommodating themselves in.

How's the 2021 Acura RDX's infotainment system?

Every RDX has a 10.2-inch touchscreen that's placed high on the dashboard, operated through the Acura's True Touchpad Interface, a well-received addition. Apple CarPlay is standard, but Android Auto is expected to be available for the upcoming year. The infotainment system should engage with the tech-savvy buyer, just as the audio system will urge the dedicated audiophile. 

There is a bit of a learning curve, but it is intuitive to use. Standard features include Siri Eyes Free, a Wi-Fi hot spot, satellite radio, a nine-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and the AcuraLink telematics system.

2021 Acura RDX Exterior

7.3/10

The Acura RDX doesn't look shabby anymore. The redesign in 2019 gave the company's compact crossover SUV some aggressive lines, deserving of a second glance. Acura advances the RDX styling by using the simple shapes and edges of its other SUV, the MDX, and clothing them tautly around a structure that appears to be sleeker, curvier, and more attractive.

2021 Acura RDX SUV Third Quarter View

The automaker's five-point grille is well-integrated into the front end. Wide LED headlights break their way toward the bulging wheel arches that cover 19-inch wheels on most variants. The "floating-roof" rear pillar makes an appearance on the new RDX, and it will stay similar for the upcoming year.

2021 Acura RDX Safety

9.4/10

The RDX was labelled a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Moreover, the 2020 RDX earned a perfect five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Acura's suite of driver aids is standard, including adaptive cruise control, which is unusual in a class where such features are often pricey extras. Every 2021 Acura RDX leaves the factory equipped with a slew of airbags and collision-avoidance tech. Some of them are:

  • Collision Warning System
  • Front & Rear Parking Sensors
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • 360 degree surround view camera

2021 Acura RDX Competition

7.5/10

Acura RDX Vs. BMW X3

The BMW X3 features athletic handling, good steering feedback, and two powerful engine choices, unlike the 2021 Acura RDX, which only comes with a single engine option. To its honor, the Acura claims richer cabin materials and a longer list of standard features

BMW X3

The RDX is priced several thousand dollars less than the BMW, and when equipped with the Advance package, it matches the X3’s performance and still takes a couple of thousand dollars less. 

Acura RDX Vs. Audi Q5

Like the RDX, the Audi Q5 offers the right mix of athleticism and comfort. Both SUVs have polished cabins with good interior space and lots of standard features. 

Audi Q5

Starting at $44,300, the Audi pretty much justifies the price difference. It is way more powerful, elegant, and luxurious, great seating, handles like a charm, and is equipped with a plethora of features and safety conveniences. If you still are not convinced with the price jump, the Advance package AWD costing $43,820, offered by Acura is an excellent alternative.

2021 Acura RDX Final Verdict

8.0/10

Luxury SUVs are deemed to be well-built and stuffed with features. The RDX does that while cutting the popular rivals by thousands of dollars. Acura has built a winner with the 2021 RDX. Its athletic charm and friendly dynamics in style and substance appeal not only to younger buyers but makes the Acura brand inviting to more consumers in general.
