Imagine the RD-X with larger conventional door handles, outside mirrors and slightly less radical head- and taillights, and you've got Acura's answer to the BMW X3. Expect it to hit Acura's showrooms in 2006 still carrying the RD-X name. Based on the Honda Civic platform, the RD-X is approximately 7 inches shorter than an Acura MDX. The RD-X resembles its larger brother, but its look is more chiseled. Acura is keeping the SUV's engine a secret for now, but it did say the RD-X will have over 200 hp, the high-tech SH-AWD system from the company's RL flagship sedan and four-wheel independent suspension. Sadly, its huge Brembo disc brakes and 19-inch wheels and tires will not. Although the RD-X concept shown in Detroit was packed with space-age gizmos and gadgets, the production version is likely to incorporate more current technology like a navigation system with voice recognition and a satellite communication system, which includes real-time traffic information.

Pros: Front seats, features, interior ambiance
Cons: Lacks low rpm grunt, handling a bit dull in casual driving, poor hood-fender fit

This is probably the perfect example of what a crossover SUV should be.
Pros: Acura reliability, comfort and convenience.
Cons: Price, small engine makes this SUV not nearly as fast as it looks.
I think it's a great car, and if I were trading in my Acura on a new SUV, I'd probably get this one. Read More at Epinions.com

Pros: Handling, Practicality, Reliability, Value, Comfortable Seats, not too big
Cons: Extremely sluggish off the line, dangerously unreliable and unpredictable power delivery, no available manual.
Fatally flawed power delivery. With a manual transmission, engine tweaks, more sound insulation and a more compliant ride, the RDX could earn 5 stars. As is, avoid it. Read More at Epinions.com

Turbo Lag makes car unsafe!!
Pros: Looks and handling
Cons: Turbo Lag could get you kill!!
If they ever fix the turbo lag I'd say buy it. If they don't fix the turbo lag I say don't walk but run from it. Read More at Epinions.com
