MKC vs RDX

Autoguide puts together a rather blah comparison of the two, i fact its a strange one considering how long in the tooth the RDX is. Almost as if where the MKC wins its YEAH it was supposed to, and in places where it doesn't its WELL WHY COULDNT YOU BEAT A $ YEAR OLD CAR!!!!

nice comparison. When it came out, the RDX was a great little SUV with a high spirited turbo 4 and high fuel consumption. It sort of evolved into something as bland as the Honda CrossTour or Nissan Rouge. Not bad, but not the same crowd as the MKC.

Hot Winter Wind: 2016 Acura RDX to Bow at 2015 Chicago Auto Show
Quick, luxurious, fun and practical new RDX to bring even stronger package to red-hot segment

Jan 21, 2015 - TORRANCE, Calif.
Coming off a record sales year as one of the best-selling SUVs in its segment, Acura's RDX is set to move its already lofty bar even higher when the new 2016 model bows at the Chicago Auto Show on February 12. The new RDX sports a long list of styling and performance improvements plus desirable new luxury and safety features designed to further solidify its leadership in the compact luxury SUV segment.

The 2016 RDX artfully blends numerous fresh exterior and interior design elements to further enrich its sport and luxury qualities, all with a cohesiveness that speaks to its new capabilities. Already one of the quickest and most fuel-efficient V6-powered entry-luxury SUVs, the 2016 RDX takes the position a step further, adding important improvements to performance, dynamics, comfort and NVH.

Don't miss the debut of the newest Acura RDX at the Chicago Auto Show on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. CST in the Acura booth.

With the 2016 model-year refresh it is expected that Acura will be addressing all of most of the RDX's (heretofore) shortcomings with regard to latest available tech and safety features. According to the local Acura dealer the 2016 RDX will be available from early May 2015.

Definitely can't go wrong with the RDX, but what i'm finding is that people are getting bored with Acura products which for some makes for a good reason to look elsewhere.

I just did not like having to use Premium gas in my Acura. Helped in my decision to buy MKC which uses regular gas.

^ According to the owner's manual for the (2015) Acura RDX - premium gasoline is recommended but is not required. The manual notes that use of gasoline with a pump octane less than 87 can lead to engine damage.

My bad. I guess my Acura salesman did not know his facts. It was the first question I asked when out looking. I had been burned by a 2010 Acura that required premium fuel - which they did not tell me ahead of time and I did not even think to ask at that time.
