I searched and search for just the right SUV and the Acura RDX fit my needs just right.
I was looking for a smaller SUV that was fun to drive, had good gas mileage, the right amount of space, a bit of luxury, and was priced right.
After the first 60 days, I'm convinced the RDX was the best choice.
The RDX offers good styling, a luxury interior, a very peppy ride, quiet inside, and a relatively smooth ride.
I wouldn't consider the handling as sporty, but this isn't an Acura TL either.
For relatively $10k less than others brands in the category, the RDX is a solid choice.
Performance & acceleration is quick and much better than the MDX.
About 27-28 on the hwy
Overall the styling of the RDX, inside and out, is very good.
The ride is quiet and handling is good, but not sporty.
HID Headlights are a must.
ELS Stereo is plenty good for my music tastes.
Being an all new model, I expected more from the technology package.
I felt that I overpaid for the package to get some of the features I wanted.
hard disk drive in the ELS stereo system is virtually out of date.
The only way to load music is by inserting CDs.
This was new technology about 5 years ago.
Towing capacity is only 1,500 pounds, which is about the same as an Amish horse and buggy. I am still perplexed by this low towing capacity as the engine has plenty of power.
