2021 Acura RDX: The Acura RDX heads into 2021 with few changes. RDX is a luxury compact crossover that seats five passengers and is only available as a 4-door wagon. New for 2021 is the addition of a new range-topping RDX PMC Edition with limited production. The RDX PMC Edition will be handbuilt by technicians at Acura’s Manufacturing Center and will come in a thermal orange paint along with orange stitching throughout the interior. This model combines the A-Spec sport appearance package and the Advance Package. RDX competitors include the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Lexus NX and Mercedes-Benz GLC.
Front-wheel drive is standard with all-wheel drive being optional. The RDX is available in three trims; RDX base, RDX SH-AWD, and RDX PMC Edition.
