2013 Acura RDX Review: What Is It
It is said that you only get once chance to make a first impression, but the 2013 Acura RDX proves that first impressions can be overrated. When the Acura RDX first came out in 2007, it was an edgier luxury crossover with a sportier attitude that attempted to stand out from the crowd, and it generally did... for all the wrong reasons. Now back for its second generation, the new 2013 Acura RDX has gone a little more mainstream while still keeping some of the edginess of the original model. Aside from the platform and name, the two RDXs share almost nothing with each other, which Acura is hoping will lead to increased sales. We had the chance to drive the 2013 Acura RDX for this weeklong road test and review to see how far a new suit, firmer handshake and a more confident smile can go in giving the RDX a much-needed second impression.
