This compact luxury sport-utility vehicle has a sporty, high-tech look and feel. It’s powered by a 2.0 turbocharged, 272-horsepower, four-cylinder engine connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission. (My test drive had Acura’s SH-AWD system.) It has a full suite of safety features such as lane departure warning, lane centering, automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert and front and rear parking systems. The ride was a nice combination of sporty and firm. The 10-speed transmission seems to be a perfect match to the engine’s performance, and the all-wheel-drive system is completely seamless. If you’re looking at small luxury SUVs and appreciate technology, the Acura RDX should be at the top of your list.
