You beat me to it. They didn't post a 0-60 time though. Only real complaints was the rear cargo area, which is apparently 10 cu ft less than the X3's. You can never judge cargo areas until you look at it in real life, so I'll save judgment for a later date. My qualification is that it should be able to hold two golf bags (without them being stacked on top of each other) with the rear seats up.

My guess is that a full review will be out within a month or so. Dammit, I wish Honda would add a power passenger seat with the technology package.

Strangely enough, for the first time (at least to me) Honda is coming out with a model that comes with a LCD display standard. The upgrade from the tech package is a 8" screen as oppose to a standard 6.5" screen and additional functionality (Real time traffic, back up camera etc.). I do like how there is a standard LCD display, you always see them in promotional photos of cars and sometimes you have to hunt down a non-display model photo online. This is because they are ashamed of the non-display versions of cars (for the most part) because thye don't look as "classy"...which says to you, the consumer, that you SHOULD be ashamed of your non-display totting model...it's nice that all RDX's will be "classy" in the scheme of things.
