Luxury SUV Comparison: Cargo Space

Plenty of luxury crossovers forget to deliver the cargo space you’d expect from such a body style, while others push boundaries by uniting first-class style with astounding practicality. The Audi Q3 ticks the first box; the new RDX ticks the latter.

Just check out cargo specs:

  • Cargo Space Behind the Second-Row Seats: Up to 31.1 cubic feet in the Acura vs. just 16.7 cubic feet in the Audi.
  • Cargo Space Behind the First-Row Seats: Up to 79.8 cubic feet in the Acura vs. just 48.2 cubic feet in the Audi.

The Audi is also incredibly cramped in the back. Rear passengers get just 31.1 inches of legroom vs. 38.4 inches in the Acura.

Luxury SUV Comparison: Technology

If spacious dimensions and fuel-sipping performance aren’t enough, the Acura RDX also offers several high-end features not available with the Audi at any price, including:

  • 16-Speaker Acura/ELS Studio 3D Premium Audio System
  • GPS-Linked Climate Control

Whether delivering immersive sound from ceiling-mounted speakers between Katy and Spring or adjusting cabin temperature as the weather changes in Sugarland, Acura RDX technology is a cut above.
