Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RDX than in the Subaru Solterra. The Acura RDX offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Subaru Solterra, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura RDX is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Solterra.

Dimensions
Since the Acura RDX is much wider than the Subaru Solterra, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Acura RDX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Solterra.

Handling
The Acura RDX has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Solterra, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura RDX has a little more horsepower than the Subaru Solterra.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Acura RDX does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Solterra.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura RDX and the Subaru Solterra.
