Better fuel efficiency for a lower starting price

Look at those starting prices. The 2018 Acura RDX has a starting MSRP that is $15,890 more than the starting MSRP of the 2018 Mazda CX-3. Imagine what you could do with that $15,890.

Already with the base trim of the 2018 Mazda CX-3, you can experience a rearview camera, the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment System with voice recognition functionality, text message audio delivery and reply, USB audio input and auxiliary-audio input jack, keyless remote entry, push-button start, Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio capability, and more. The Acura RDX does offer more in the way of cargo capacity with its maximum of 61.3 cubic feet compared to the 44.5 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity inside the 2018 Mazda CX-3, but it depends on how much space you're really going to need.
