The 2018 Acura RDX will continue to be one of the most competitive models in class for sure. This is the first-ever compact crossover from this luxury brand. It originally came in 2006. The original model was in production until 2012. The current model is in the second generation, and it already received first update last year. This stylish crossover comes with many trumps in its pocket. It is one of the best-looking models in class, it comes with fuel efficient but yet powerful V6 engine, and also with a whole bunch of standard features. Since the last update was less than two years ago, we are pretty sure that 2018 RDX will not feature some bigger changes. It will come somewhere late in the year.

As we already mentioned, 2018 Acura RDX will come without bigger changes. It will feature pretty much the same characteristics in all aspects, including styling, interior design and mechanical aspect of the car.
