2009 Acura RDX 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


This is a jazzed up Honda at best. By no means does this truck have a true level of luxury, in fact, an Accord V6 may be more luxurious. That being said, it's all about performance in the RDX, and a fun factor that you will not find in any other smaller SUV. The RDX is the best driving small SUV out, it's faster, handles better, and has fantastic steering - new editions like the Q5 will give it a run, but its price keep it from being shopped together.

Best Features

Turbo that works - minimal to no lag, strong acceleration, sports car moves, SUV carrying capacity, great back seat - more room than what appears, sports car suspension (it's stiff - too stiff), SHAWD works.

Worst Features

Interior needs to be more luxurious, get rid of the plastic dash, needs rear HVAC, hydraulic hood, rear lift gate release/power, 8 way pwer pass seat, materials on back doors need to match front doors (hard plastic trim vs soft padded materials) std 19 inch rims, more options.
