I decided to trade in my TL for this because I wanted all wheel drive. I was disappointed to find out that the car lacked some features I thought would be standard across all models. Namely, the navigation screen was no longer touch screen (as my TL from a few years prior had been). I also found both the gas range prediction and mpg to be terrible. On a drive across the country in a torrential downpour, I checked my range vs. the nearest gas station. At the time (about 20 miles away), I had about 12-15 extra miles according to the trip computer. Suddenly, about 10 miles away it jumped to 9 miles and I wondered if I would even make it.
The handling of the RDX is a lot of fun. It feels much more like a car than an SUV.
Touch-screen nav, v6, manual transmission, better hook system for floor mats, power passenger seat, a way to disable many features (I asked the dealership and was told many cannot be disabled via the computer).
