Expert Quotes:

The cabin of the 2010 RDX doesn't feel particularly luxurious, although it looks nicer than a typical economy car.

Slightly narrow doorways squeeze entry and exit.

Acura says it has upgraded the RDX's interior materials, but you'd need a craftsman's touch to notice the differences

the seats offer super comfort and a nice amount of bolster to keep you in place

The 2012 Acura RDX might be a sportier-driving alternative to a number of more staid luxury crossovers, but thankfully it doesn't give up much utility of comfort.

In the front seats, most adults will be happy; but in back adult knees will likely be mashed up against the hard plastic backs of those front perches. The downward sloping roofline cuts into the cargo area a bit, but fold the back seats forward for larger items and you're golden.

On the bright side, the Acura RDX has a plethora of handy storage places for things—and not only the small stuff. The doors include compartments for smaller items, and the center console area and dash have several cubbies.

Fit and finish in the RDX is excellent, and the RDX's interior spaces are fitted with lots of finely grained and silver-painted plastic--a look that's sharp, but also a little tired.

Ride quality is on the firm side, relative to other vehicles in this class. It's just comfortable enough most of the time, but it can be busy on some pitchy surfaces; and the only consistent disappointment within the cabin (likely to be noticed on longer trips) is that there can be quite a bit of road noise--way more than there should be in a luxury model.

 

Conclusion

The back seat isn't all that large in the 2012 Acura RDX, and road noise can be an issue, but otherwise its cabin is quite comfortable and versatile.

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.
