The 2020 Acura RDX is taken into consideration a small high-end SUV, yet there’s in fact extremely little that’s small concerning it. When aligned versus its rivals, you can see that it delights in a clear dimensional benefit. The RDX is rather close to the Lexus RX, with a similar back legroom number as well as substantially much more freight room with the back seat elevated. Undoubtedly, I’ll be dealing with the last below.
Theoretically, Acura offers a number of freight numbers calling out details SAE dimension criteria each. Generally, it has 31.1 cubic-feet behind its rear when you include its underfloor storage space as well as 29.5 cubic-feet when you do not. Also that smaller sized number transcends to whatever in the sector conserve the Volvo XC60(297), while the Lexus RX evidently has a seems-way-too-small 18.4.
Allowed’s see what that dimension benefit implies.
It’s evident that this is a large as well as relatively deep room with lots of air over the rear line for bulkier products. Keep in mind that the freight cover was absent in this examination lorry, so I could not evaluate ability with it in position.
As in every travel luggage examination, I utilize 2 midsize roller luggage that would certainly require to be signed in at the airport terminal (26 inches long, 16 large, 11 deep), 2 roll-aboard luggage that simply hardly suit the expenses (24 L x 15 W x 10 D), as well as one smaller sized roll-aboard that fits conveniently (23 L x 15 W x 10 D). I additionally include my other half’s elegant carry-on simply to spruce points up a little bit (21 L x 12 W x 12 D).
There you go, all the bags fit conveniently. This is basically similar to the Lexus RX (listed below left) as well as a a lot easier fit than the Mercedes GLC, which is among the only various other small high-end versions I have actually evaluated. Both of these instances are much more capacious than their specifications would certainly show.
Nonetheless, this is not completion of the RDX tale. Bear in mind when I discussed that it has 31.1 cubic-feet when including its underfloor storage space? Well, that could in fact be underselling the additional room got.
Initially, I such as that the flooring turns back as well as relaxes level so you can conveniently utilize the additional room. You can additionally completely eliminate the flooring item to get to the aft container, which is much deeper yet unusually formed.
Below are my 4 biggest bags standing, with enough back exposure kept, as well as you still have the full-width area of the freight location consisting of the underfloor container. What can you fit there?
Just How around a 38- quart cooler as well as the continuing to be 2 bags piled carelessly around it. I additionally can’ve fit a Graco playpen plus some smaller sized satchels.
Basically, when you utilize the under-floor storage space, the RDX does without a doubt have even more freight room than the competitors. Currently, the Lexus RX has it’s very own cargo-expanding method, a relapsing seat, yet utilizing it undoubtedly comes with the expenditure of your travelers’ legs. This comes with the expenditure of absolutely nothing. An extra tire is still existing in some RDX’s, though not this A-Spec trim.
In instance you’re contrasting the RDX within the Honda small SUV family members, below is what the 39.2- cubic-foot Honda CR-V can take care of. Generally, it can do the like the RDX, yet without the demand for secret underfloor areas. It additionally, undoubtedly, produces much neater, simpler loading.
Currently, below is the RDX’s complete, seats-down freight ability. The flooring is fairly level.
And also ultimately, below is just how a Thule Springtime baby stroller fits within.
