Mein Auto: 2014 X3 28i
I haven't driven the RDX, but my guess is that the N20 will be just as fast, if not faster, in many real-world driving situations thanks to its greater and more accessible torque and eight-speed (vs. six speed) automatic to keep the revs in the sweet spot. Also, the 20/28 EPA numbers are for FWD. The AWD numbers are just a touch lower (although still impressive for a big V6) for the RDX at 19/27/22, while the X3 is at 21/27/23 according to BMW's website. The N20 achieves this even while dragging around 200 extra lbs. as the X3 is heavier than the RDX.
