How Does Each Vehicle Drive?

With a narrow wheelbase of 105.7-inches and 279 available horsepower, the new 2016 Acura RDX drives and handles more like a sporty sedan than a larger crossover. It balances power with dynamism, and the result is an athletic experience that’s unlike any other vehicle of its size. And providing 252 lb-ft of torque, the RDX’s acceleration is smooth and graceful. Plus, the RDX offer 28 mpg* highway, an impressive figure for a crossover.

By comparison, the 2016 Toyota Highlander lags behind the RDX, offering 270 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. This means it drives more sluggish. And with an EPA estimated 25 mpg* highway, the Highlander again comes within reach of the RDX in efficiency, but it again simply can’t match it.

How Comfortable are They?

With wins already notched in the performance department, the RDX has already declared supremacy over the competition. As Acura is a luxury brand, it should come as no surprise that the 2016 Acura RDX’s features eclipse those of the Highlander.
