What are your thoughts on the 2013 Acura RDX? I have serious considered the RDX in the past but could not get past the design. I am really liking the new look.

I too am interested in this new model. Im attracted to the better Gas Mileage. Also curious to see color options, and to see one in person. I just test drove a new 2012.... I liked it!.. Cant wait to see the 2013.
I think they may hit the dealers here in a few weeks.... Curious to know how flexible pricing will be on a new release like this.... Ill be checking here frequently:)

2013 RDX vs 2012 CRV
I am in the market for either the CRV or new RDX, both with navi. I have owned many Acura and Honda products. I'd like to get several opinions as to which folks prefer. Amongst the many questions I have...
- Will the handling, torque, and acceleration be significantly better on the upcoming RDX (due out next week) ?
- Will it be safe to use regular gas in the new RDX V-6
-Is the new RDX interior much nicer than the CRV
My understanding is that the price difference between the 2 fully loaded is about 10K.
Anyway....let the discussion begin!!!

Where's Edmunds' review of the new RDX? They are usually one of the first to review new models.

Good question, nothing since the end of February.
There's a couple of "first drives" out there, including this one from MotorAuthority.
I have a feeling ours won't be too far behind (can't imagine an editor would have turned down a free scoping trip to Scottsdale but maybe they want to look at one on their own terms).
#6 of 283 V6 CRV for $10k more.
Mar 31, 2012 (5:45 pm)
test drove one today, wish they kept the SH-AWD, now it's just a souped up CRV with a V6 engine for $10k more. to be honest, this car is kinda boring to drive now w/o Turbo, engine is quiet, but car felt more bouncy and has more side to side movement than the 2012 I test drove few weeks ago. The dealer wanted MSRP for it, they somehow think they have a winner in their hands. I guess if I tried harder they might knock $500 off, but I didn't fall in love with it, so I didn't really try. AFter I got home, I contacted the dealer that I test drove the 2012 before to see what kind of deal I can get on a leftover 2012 with tech package.

Thanks for that report; wondered if the new RDXs were starting to arrive at the dealers yet.

No, it will not void your warranty. Premium is recommended but not required. You may lose some mpg and power, but it will not hurt your engine.

can you provide a link from Acura saying premium is recommended but not required? As far as I know, the offical words from Acura is "using gasoline with an octane lower than 91 octane may cause damage to the engine. Please consult the owner's manual for details" so unless we see a press release from Acura, I wouldn't take the words from some guy on Edmunds forum. Seriously, if you drive 10k a year and premium is 20cents/gallon more, you are only looking at $100 more a year. If you can afford an Acura, the extra $100-200/yr shouldn't kill you.
