The Auto Channel

“The Acura RDX can be summed up in one word: elegant. This is a nice SUV with decent performance and a comfortable ride, just what the market for the RDX will demand.”

“ I just felt that every time we got into the RDX, there was this sense of refinement that you don't often find in other vehicles of its ilk. “

“The cabin itself shows a redesign that includes sweeping shapes, matte surface trim and enough leather to make you feel good, but not feel as if you're inside a cow. We had good side support in the front seats, enough to add to the comfort level. In the rear there is very good leg room for rear passengers. In fact, the people who rode there commented on how comfortable their ride was.”

“The Acura RDX is a very comfortable driver. With an excellent sound system and an easily programmable navigation system, not to mention an air conditioning system that cools you well, there is little to make the ride unforgettable.”
