The RDX is roughly the same as the Honda CR-V but includes upscale features like leather seating and HID lights as standard equipment. A turbocharged 240-bhp 2.3L I-4 turbo routes power to the SH-AWD system via a 5-speed automatic with sequential manual control.

An optional 410-watt 10-speaker audio system will play DVD-Audio discs through eight separate channels. Safety features include four airbags, plus two side-curtain airbags.
