2015 Honda CR-V Interior

Compact SUVs are a good choice for consumers who desire a vehicle with a high driving position, good visibility and abundant passenger and cargo space, while also having the advantage of being more maneuverable and having better fuel economy than larger SUVs. Two wonderful options for compact SUVs are the CR-V and RDX. In this 2016 Honda CR-V vs 2016 Acura RDX comparison, we take a look at their features to see which compact SUV comes out on top. 

The 2016 RDX makes a bold impression with sleeker, more aggressive lines accentuated by upgraded wheels and LED headlights and taillights. It's filled with many great features like AcuraLink for streaming internet media, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and an Advanced Compatibility (ACE) body structure design that distributes frontal crash energy more evenly to reduce forces transferred to the passenger compartment. The Honda CR-V was the Motor Trend SUV of the Year for 2015, and not wanting to meddle with success, features only minor updates for 2016, such as slight changes to the grille, headlights and front bumper.
