We may not have loved the 2019 Acura RDX's multimedia system one bit, but on many other points, the Honda luxury brand's smallest SUV got a makeover for the model year that helps it stand out. From a comfortable interior to a refined powertrain and a honed exterior, the RDX has been properly prepped to compete with the likes of the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Volvo XC60. But how much will it cost you fuel-wise? Related: 2019 Acura RDX Review: Major Multimedia Misfire Given that the average prices of regular and premium gasoline were virtually unchanged from a week ago early Thursday per AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report, you'd be paying roughly the same.
