To our welcome surprise, the 2014 RDX delivers above and beyond the expected level of dynamism, proving itself a capable performer in initial acceleration and passing power. The standard V6...
... idles smoother and pulls harder than the 4-cylinder turbocharged engines found in the Audi Q5 and
Land Rover LR2. For those times when more oomph is required, the RDX has a sport mode for speedier gear changes and enhanced control over the paddle shifters. It doesn’t take a whole lot of work to get comfortable in the 10-way power driver’s seat, but front passengers might feel like they’re riding low, as that seat does not adjust for height.
