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."

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.

Conclusion

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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
