Where everyone else zigs, the 2016 Acura RDX zags.

Using just 10.7L/100km combined, and 8.6 on the highway (or 22 miles per gallon and 27 mpg, respectively), this engine matches or betters its turbo rivals, and produces 279 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque for effortless passing power. This excellent engine is paired with a smooth 6-speed automatic transmission, and optional all-wheel drive makes it easy to navigate the demanding Alberta winters.
