In order to give people a higher end selection of cars, Honda decided to start the Acura brand. This moved allowed them to focus on more luxurious cars without having to share the showroom floor with the cheaper Honda models. This was a successful move which has also been used by other US manufacturers. One of the cars sold by Acura is the RDX, a medium size five seats crossover based on the CRV. It is slightly larger, more powerful and more luxurious with the current model being available since 2012.

Despite basically being a CRV, the car has been quite successful thanks to its great ride quality and refined engine. In order to stay above the competition, a new model is going to be released shortly. The upcoming 2018 Acura RDX will also be based on the CRV. However, this time around the car will use Honda’s brand new modular architecture which debuted on the latest Civic, and it is also in use on the new CRV.
