The RDX is one of Acura’s best-selling vehicles, and it’s getting several updates for 2023.

Since the crossover received a update in 2022, this year’s upgrades are minor, but include three years of AcuraLink services at no extra charge. This is a boon for consumers as the safety package provides automatic collision warning, advanced roadside assistance and a live agent that can assist you in emergency situations.

Customers will also get three years of access to the Remote package, which allows owners to remotely start and stop their car, as well as remotely lock and unlock the doors. The package also includes the Find My Car feature, a stolen car locator and a car alarm. Parents can also keep tabs on their kids with speed and geofencing alerts, which alert owners when their vehicle enters or leaves a certain zone.

In addition to the connectivity features, the 2023 RDX comes with Acura’s new service package. It provides two years or 24,000 miles (38,624 km) of free scheduled maintenance, including oil and filter changes, tire changes and a multi-point inspection.

Since the changes are minor, we remind you that the base RDX is well equipped with LED lighting devices, a sunroof, power doors and 19-inch alloy wheels. Buyers will also find heated leatherette front seats with 12-way power adjustments.

Other highlights include a 7-inch multi-information display in the instrument cluster and a 10.2-inch infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. They are joined by dual-zone automatic climate control, a nine-speaker audio system and HomeLink.

Buyers will also find the AcuraWatch suite of driver assistance systems, which includes adaptive cruise control with low-speed hold, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and collision braking. Other highlights include Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Departure Mitigation.

Regardless of which trim level is chosen, all RDXs are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 272 hp. (203 kW / 276 hp) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque. It’s mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission that can be paired with an optional $2,200 all-wheel drive system. However, a few higher-end models are available exclusively with all-wheel drive.

Pricing starts at $41,350, which is $750 more than last year’s model. With a $1,195 destination charge, the crossover starts at $42,545.
