    As the owner of a first generation Acura NSX and having driven no other Acura’s until the 2019 RDX came along, I have to say that I’m completely blown away at the quality of this car. Power-wise, it feels like a caged animal that has to be held back from lunging out at the first opportunity. The quality of the interior materials is top-notch. The Super Handling All Wheel Drive System belies the SUV’s hugger center of gravity. Taking corners at speed feels as though the car actually hunkers down. Anybody who is considering a crossover / SUV owes it to themselves to check out this rocket. Clearly, this NSX fan is impressed enough.

      That’s good to hear about the performance & quality! I have to say the design has come a long way.

    One yr before I decided to just leave my past work and I am extremely glad at present…. I started earning a living on the internet, for an organization I located online, for a few hr each day, and I get way more than I did on my office job… My pay-check for prior calendar month was 9,000 US dollars… The most advantageous thing on this is the additional leisure time I obtained for my little ones…and that the single requirement for this task is simple typing and having access to broadband… I am in a position to put in quality time with my loved ones and good friends and also take care of my kids and also going on holiday vacation with them really consistently. Don’t ignore this chance and make sure to act quick. Test it out, what it is about… GRAB26.COM

    If only Acura would fix the interior design…

    • TechLegend

      Explain? Their new interiors are nice and as good if not better than most in it’s class. There’s a reason why this is the best selling SUV in it’s class.

        interiors are not the reason it’s the best selling in its class. and the RDX interior is far from better than most in its class. Acura interior design remains dated and bland.

        • KRogers86

          Care to elaborate? The materials in the NEW 2019+ RDX are far better than those in popular competitors like the Volvo XC40 and the new Audi Q3.

          The RDX is full of soft touch plastics, stitched leather/micro-suede accents, real wood and aluminum trim. The XC40 has an interior that is nice enough, but uses more hard plastic than you’d expect to see in a $40k crossover. Audi interiors across the board, including the new Q3, have seen some downgrades in design and material choices, including harder surfaces along door panels and dashboards where you’d normally expect to find soft, padded plastics and an over reliance on huge swaths of glossy “piano black” trim.

          The new RDX interior is definitely a step up from recent Acura interiors; gone are the days of silver plastic (fake aluminum) trim and fake wood, and design motifs lifted from lower Honda models. I trust the next MDX, TLX, and the future flagship sedan will continue to reinforce this truth.

    All that and still…..no Android Auto.

    Glad Acura finally saw the light that SUV’s and not cars, is where the money is at. They invested in the MDX, but half tried and went cheap with the RDX. Looks like they are serious about competing in this class now.

    The “suede” is Alcantara, and therefore it is a breathable material.
