Handling Ranked 2020 Acura RDX SH-AWD with Advance Package better.
"It is almost like comparing a Miata to a minivan. The harder you push the RDX, the better it feels. If you are pushing it hard through turns, it transfers more power to the rear wheels and most of that can go to the outside rear wheel. This helps push the car through the turn and make it feels more like a rear wheel drive vehicle. This greatly increases the fun factor of driving the car. In normal driving you may not notice this as much. What you will notice though if you buy the Advance version of the RDX is you get adjustable suspension in addition to sport modes for the transmission. Dial the drive mode to sport + and put the transmission in sport mode and it does a pretty good imitation of sports hatchback albeit a bit larger. Dial the mode to comfort and leave the transmission in normal drive and it is pretty relaxed on the highway. "
Back Seats Ranked 2020 Acura RDX SH-AWD with Advance Package worse.
"There is clearly more room on the Pilot. I think the material are nice on the RDX but Ill take more room over nicer materials when room is tight to begin with. I also like the separate controls for the rear seat ventilation. Not exactly fair to compare the two as the Pilot is a large class car but I did find the front seats on the RDX to be roomier and more comfortable than the Pilot."

"Great value; Highlander is too narrow and feels cramped inside."
