Driving Impression

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

The 3.6-liter V6 engine is powerful and refined, and brings a lot of grunt with its torque. It makes 279 hp with 252 lb-ft.

The electric power steering is direct, better than that the Lexus RX. And the handling is accurate, if not entirely sports-car-like. Out on the wide-open road, at high speed, it’s rock steady. The suspension takes the bumps in stride.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive
“”

The busy RDX features a beak nose on a two-box shape. It’s reasonably harmonious. The five-square LED headlamps blend smoothly. The nose is neither aggressive nor flashy. You don’t do a double-take.

The base 17-inch alloy wheels could stand to be a bit more flashy, like the machine-finished 18-inch alloys that come with the Technology package.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

The busy cabin shows its age, especially in gray, and struggles to meet that near-luxury tag. For example some matte silver painted plastic trim looks like it came off the modest CR-V. But close your eyes and the RDX feels like a crossover costing much more. It’s solid and quiet. Open them and you’ll see that the large center console has lots of storage space. The thick-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel suggests cornering tenacity that’s not quite there.

Front occupants will find it spacious and comfortable, with power adjustment on both seats, even the base model, with especially good lumbar support.

The rear passengers face a low bench seat, in an attempt to improve headroom which remains limited. It supposedly can fit three adults but we don’t recommend it. It folds almost flat, to create a good-sized 61.3 cubic feet of cargo space. And then there’s the bonus of another 15.6 cubic feet under the cargo floor.

The infotainment on the Technology and Advance RDX isn’t user-friendly. The menus are complicated, and a second screen in the process doesn’t help. Another drawback to the system is Apple CarPlay or Android Auto aren’t available.

Summary

“”

We’ll stick to the base model, in avoidance of the frustrating infotainment on the upscale models. We’re fine with the good leatherette, and we still get the great V6 and slick six-speed paddle-shifting automatic. Comfortable supportive seats. The rear passengers will be a bit tight, but when they’re gone there’s tons of room for cargo. Sharp direct handling at all times. Cheaper than a BMW. So what if the trim isn’t fancy.
