RDX vs. CR-V: Worth the Upgrade?

From the outside, there doesn’t appear to be much difference between the Honda CR-V and Acura RDX. In fact, the 2018 RDX is based on the platform of the older 2012-to-2016-era CR-V, and there’s definitely a family resemblance between these two compact SUVs.

However, the 2018 CR-V currently sits at the top of our compact SUV rankings, while the 2018 RDX comes in just above mid-pack. It’s tempting to go for the luxury option if you can afford it, but the RDX starts at about a third more than the CR-V.

With scoring data from U.S. News reviews, we compared these two models in the categories that matter the most to potential buyers of compact SUVs. After reading this comparison, you should be able to decide whether the Acura RDX or Honda CR-V is the better choice for you.
