The size is a bit disappointing. I was hoping for an interior space on par with the LS 430

I'm quite sure Honda was clever about the interior and it should equal its competition if not better them.

The RL's Lexus competitor is the GS, not the LS.

I'm assuming that you're drawing conclusion on interior size based on exterior dimensions (RL would be about 4" shorter, 0.5" lower and 0.6" wider than LS430).

Based on those numbers and that RL will have a cabin volume of 103 cu. ft, it should be very comparable to LS430 in terms of interior dimensions. But, it is also clear with Acura's latest approach that their cars should be "Euro-packaged" (meaning, cut down on exterior size as much as possible). IMO, that is a good thing.
