Acura's updates to the 2016 RDX import a healthy dose of styling from the brand's other recently updated models. Five years ago I'd be groaning after reading that, but Acura's latest design direction is on the up and up as the luxury brand distances itself from the exaggerated shield/beaked designs of the past.
The 2016 RDX adds a more dimensional, attractive shape to the compact SUV with new front and rear styling for a more contemporary look. One of the stand-out features of the 2016 are the new jewel-eye LED headlights, which are becoming a staple of the brand and feature LED low and high beams and LED "light pipe" accents. Acura's wild LED projector headlights sparkle even when they're off and are standard equipment on the RDX.
