The turbo is peppy, but takes a second to kick in. The road noise is a bit more than I would like and it is a stiff ride, which some people don't like.
The storage! We also test drove a Honda CR-V before we bought (they are on the same platform) and there is much more storage in the RDX. The front middle console is huge and can hold a woman's large purse.
Lower the amount of road noise. Possibly a 6-cylinder??
