Comfort & Quality

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com feels the 2009 Acura RDX's quality exceeds the price tag that comes with it—but the RDX sacrifices some comfort at the expense of snappy performance.

Behind the wheel of the 2009 Acura RDX, reviewers feel right at home. Auto Spectator contends the front seats provide "high outward visibility" and a "confident field of view." MyRide.com also likes the seating in the Acura; 2009’s Acura boasts "sturdy seats [that] hold occupants nicely," and the driver's seat, with "an eight-way power unit with lumbar and heating, is superb."

The 2009 Acura RDX is quite impressive inside—provided you’re sitting in front.

Cars.com notes that "compared to other SUVs ... the RDX's cargo area is right up there with the best." Consumer Guide also mentions that "large door pockets and clever door armrest bins offer plenty of small-item storage." Completing the effective storage design is "a huge center console that's big enough to swallow a laptop computer," according to Kelley Blue Book.

Reviewers aren't as impressed with the 2009 Acura RDX from the backseat. Kelley Blue Book stays optimistic by saying the backseat is "cozy without being cramped."

Forbes Autos considers the drive "a bit noisy on the front-passenger side." Consumer Guide also brings up noise, claiming the "tires are noisy even on smooth asphalt."

TheCarConnection.com also notes that the RDX rides very firmly. If you drive on relatively smooth roads, you’ll be fine, but pothole-ridden surfaces can prove uncomfortable.
