I've had an RDX for a month and all I can you won't regret a test drive.
This is an awesome Crossover with performance on par to sport sedans.
Those who say it's basically the same as the Honda CRV have no clue what they are talking about.
For one thing, the V6 just shines...it instills confidence and I actually look forward to driving.
Try drive up a hill in the RDX and you will understand it's capabilities.
Secondly the technology for value can't be beat.
I recommend going for the technology package if you can afford it. You
get a very convenient power lift gate and an awesome 410 watt sound system which plays music in all sorts of ways (CD, DVD-Audio, XM radio, Bluetooth, Ipod)
Performance - V6 engine and quick acceleration.
Rearseat - Actually fits 3 people unlike the Audi Q5
Audio System - 410 watt of crisp, clear audio
Quiet interior - You can actually have a decent conversation with the rearseat passengers
Some luxury features are missing which would have been the cherry on the top...
1. Missing are 10-way power passenger seat.
(It's only 4-way with no height adjustment)
2. Voice Command takes some practice to get a hang of.
3. No rear air conditioner vent
4. No option panoramic sunroof, but who not really that important
5. Towing capacity is low.
Car is more suited for around the town driving or an occasional trip to Tahoe.
