Motorists continue to gravitate toward compact SUVs, thanks to these vehicles' brilliant balance of versatility and efficiency. Two popular options among new 5-passenger crossover SUVs for sale are the 2021 Acura RDX and its competitor from Honda, the 2021 CR-V. The Acura RDX and its premium performance and amenities are stiff competition for any other compact SUV, let alone a more mainstream entry like the Honda CR-V. In this article, we'll review how these Acura and Honda crossover SUVs compare in key areas.
Acura's 2021 RDX and the 2021 Honda CR-V feature similarly-sized interiors for up to five occupants, you'll discover that how their cabins are presented differ greatly. The new Acura RDX is a bonafide luxury crossover SUV, even in standard trim, and is fitted with the upscale amenities and dynamic performance drivers come to expect from any automobile wearing the Acura badge.
Honda's latest CR-V includes far fewer features as standard and doesn't offer the same level of available amenities as the Acura. The CR-V's lower starting price can quickly jump as it tries to match the Acura RDX in features.
Every 2021 Acura RDX includes an array of power-operated features that are not standard on the 2021 Honda CR-V. Power driver and front passenger seats with power lumbar support, a power moonroof and a power liftgate are found on the RDX Standard model but not on the Honda CR-V LX. You'll also enjoy added luxury touches throughout the Acura RDX, thanks to its standard heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and crisp, LED headlights. If you want to experience similar features in the 2021 Honda CR-V, you'll have to upgrade from the LX to a pricier edition!
If you shop the new Honda CR-V and try to outfit it like the 2021 RDX comes as standard, you'll find that pricing shoots up, nearing that of the Acura. For instance, the top-trim CR-V Touring boasts a comparable price to that of the Acura RDX Standard, but not comparable features. Why upgrade to luxury when you can get it as standard with an Acura RDX?
There are many ways that that Acura's new RDX outperforms the Honda CR-V, from its far more powerful engine to its highly advanced and premium amenities.
