Having test driven a variety of its competitors, including some SUVs up-market as well as down (GLK, X3, Q5, Highlander) as well as being a former MDX owner, my wife and I were equally impressed with the RDX, albeit for very different reasons.
Love the performance, 0-60 in about 6 seconds - very impressive, and surprisingly nimble, a very fun car to drive.
The stereo is equally impressive, sounds great and free 12 months subscription to satellite insures something for everyone to listen to.
The cargo space handles weekend shopping and family upkeep with ease.
Crash test ratings help keep the kids safe
Tech package, mid-level sports car performance, AWD is very capable, cargo space, Acura/Honda reputation.
MPG not as impressive as one might think.
Average about 18 (he) and 20 (she) across the board.
Road noise, while improved over earlier models, still pronounced, particularly with all-season tires.
