In crossover segment, hard to beat
By Jeremy C on
2008 Acura RDX 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Faster and less expensive than the BMW X3, the Acura RDX is about as good as it gets in this segment. It drives like a sports sedan and has plenty of storage. If you're looking at the Murano, you should check out the RDX as well. It's faster and a lot nicer, for only a few thousand dollars more. The SH All Wheel Drive makes accelerating out of a corner nice as well. Overall, I'd give it a 9.5 / 10.
Quickness. Bluetooth integration. AWD.
You could make the car 3-4 inches longer for more leg room. I'd like to see a v6 engine as an option as well.
