Acura RDX test Drive coming up.

As you can see, I just got a new Acura RDX for the week.

After driving the Accord, I was really interested to get into the all new RDX. Since it uses the same engine, transmissions etc…
This is pretty much the Accord’s SUV cousin.

So far, I am enjoying the super luxurious interior. Although not so much the overly complicated infotainment. Unlike the super easy to use Touch screen from the Accord, this has a “not so easy” trackpad.
I guess I’ll have plenty of time to master the whole thing…

As usual, I will try to answer any questions you might have.

  1. Hi Vince,

    I'd appreciate your thoughts comparing this to the honda CRV. Is the extra $ worth the step up to the RDX?

    Thanks,

    Riley

  2. Vince, when driving it, do you see the huge front top hood, the top fenders?
    I'm about 5'10, and when I drove the CRV I felt that I was driving a big boat (looks wise). A big turn off.

    I've been waiting for the Rav4 for a while now, three more months…

  3. I test drove the standard RDX. Smooth and fine machine, it would be a great buy for anyone looking for performance, reliability,and value. However, what I did not expect was the weird looking and feeling seating materials of the A-spec version. I could not imagine suede type leather in the southern states in the summer(ugly red anyone?)

  4. . The steering seemed pretty light at first. At least in the "Comfort" mode. But I did get used to it. And it feels just fine now.
    If firms up very very slightly in "sport" mode. But that also creates a fake exhaust sound that I don't like….

    . I see what you mean about the top fenders. There are unnecessary creases/bumps on each side. Like the CR-V. Weird and kind of distracting.

    . My test car has an all black interior, so the suede part doesn't really show. The seats are very comfortable no matter what.

    . It is very quick, but doesn't feel any quicker than the Accord. And it really doesn't have to be.
