The RDX is NOT based on the CRV just like the EX35 is not based on the Rogue... UGH - get your facts straight before you present them as facts...
They are both great cars.
RDX handling is better. Size is better. Reliability is better. Price is better.
EX35 ride is better, interior materials are better
Acura> / = infiniti

"..RDX handling is better.."
As good, EXCELLENT, as is the SH-AWD it does NOT compare favorably with even a simple RWD vehicle. Infiniti does not believe in FWD or F/awd vehicular drive systems for a good reason.
#56 of 62 RDX or CRV. Same?

If you look at RDX and CRV again, closely, they are identical.
I would go with EX35 if I don't have children.
Even a new Huyndai Tucson is better than RDX in many ways. Its style is so obsolete.

How are they identical? Powertrain is different, body is different, suspension is different. Somewhere on the web, there's a video interview where the RDX is compared to the CRV and the guy says they share 7% of the components. I'm literally looking right at my '08 RDX and my neighbor's '08 CRV.

They look identical when you look from outside with same platform. If you put roofrack on CRV and look at it from back, side, and front, people will get confused.
You don't do a surgery to check internal organs to say 2 people identical. It just the look.
Maxima and G35 using same engine/transmission, but they don't look identical.
Anyway, CRV and RDX are pretty much no difference, so why convince otherwise?

I just want to make sure I'm getting this right.
The cars look similar, so that means they're the same. Good one. Like saying the EX35 is a Rogue.
After your last post, it's pretty clear you don't know anything about these vehicles, I would have loved to race you for slips w/ my Grand National (just a black Regal, right?), but just for kicks, how does Nissan use the Maxima's drive train, a front wheel drive car, and somehow make the exact same drive train work in a rear wheel drive G35 (based on a rear wheel drive Z chassis in case you didn't know). And by extension, since the EX is based on the G, then they're the same as well?
