Model Highlights

The 2014 Acura RDX has a very simple lineup of models: It's offered with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and with or without a Technology Package.

All Acura RDX models are powered by a 273-horsepower, 3.5L V6 engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It provides strong, smooth acceleration, while the car-like MacPherson strut front suspension and independent multi-link rear setup are tuned to be comfort-oriented yet firm enough for quick maneuvers, and an electric power steering system follows a Motion Adaptive algorithm for a natural feel at low or high speeds.

The RDX has seating for five, with the contoured leather seats in back offering more comfort than most other compact crossover wagons. The rear seatbacks are split-folding and flip forward with a 'one-touch' activation--to expand the 16.9 cubic feet with the seatback up to 76.9 cubic feet behind the front seats. Up front, there's a large center console, and Acura has included several other smaller cubbies, in the doors and dash. Ride quality is hushed for a vehicle that also aims to those who enjoy driving, but Active Noise Cancellation helps keep the cabin especially quiet.

From a safety standpoint, the RDX covers both active and passive fronts, packing in an advanced stability control system, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, and six airbags, along with the Honda/Acura Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure that's designed to help absorb energy in crashes with different-sized vehicles.

Heated front power seats, a power moonroof, keyless entry, heated side mirrors, push-button start, and a multi-angle rearview camera system are included in all RDX models. The sound system has 360 watts, and it includes Pandora internet radio (with a connected smartphone and data plan), hands-free calling, and even SMS text messaging.

Models with the Technology Package add, as the name implies, plenty of additional high-tech conveniences, including a navigation system with voice recognition; a hard-disk storage system; real-time traffic with rerouting features; real-time weather; dual-zone climate control; a power rear tailgate; projector-beam; bi-xenon headlamps; front fog lamps; and an Acura/ELS surround-sound system.

Model News

The RDX luxury crossover carries over to 2014 with no significant changes. The only difference is that for 2014, a new Kona Coffee exterior hue replaces Amber Brownstone.

Value Writeup

The Acura RDX was redesigned for 2013, becoming slightly larger and adopting a V6 to replace the former turbocharged 4-cylinder. As a result, this RDX is quieter, more refined and more comfortable, and rather than being one of the edgier compact crossovers it's now a somewhat smaller but still refined alternative to mid-size luxury models like the Lexus RX or Cadillac SRX. The RDX's simplified model lineup and rich list of standard features also means that you'll get a well-equipped luxury vehicle that probably has a lower price tag than many other well-equipped models.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Honda CR-V, 2011-2015 CR-Z, 2010-2014 FCX, and Insight, 2009-2013 Fit, 2013-2014 Fit EV, 2007-2014 Ridgeline, 2013-2016 Acura ILX, 2013-2014 Acura ILX Hybrid, 2007-2016 RDX, 2005-2012 Acura RL, 2009-2014 Acura TL, and 2010-2013 Acura ZDX vehicles. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.

In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the inflator, free of charge. Remedy parts are expected to be available in Summer 2016. Interim notices will be mailed to owners during March 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are JY0, JY1, and JY2.
