The single entry from a luxury brand, RDX nearly tops out this list's price range, but it comes loaded with standard features, such as seven air bags, leather seating, heated power front seats, power moon roof, dual-zone automatic climate control and a seven-speaker audio system with iPod interface and satellite radio capability.
Well-appointed with user-friendly controls, the inviting cabin is a terrific place to spend a quick run to the mall or a cross-country trek to Grandma's. Ample rear-seat legroom means complaints from that gangly teen will be kept to a minimum.
Other than a higher seating position, you can be lulled into thinking you are behind the wheel of a Honda Accord. RDX is quiet with a sedan-like ride quality. A 273-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 distributes production to the wheels via a six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission.
