not sure the #, but having one, I do have to climb up a bit into it (and I am 6' tall). Certainly try it out, but I would think you would want something a bit lower, but above sedan height.

I purchased a 2013 RDX last Aug. Sold back to Acura 1 year later. Great motor, handling, braking, and gas mileage. But these were not enough to offset the ridiculous amount of road noise if you are on a rough surface road - ie farm to market. Road noise is similar to being in a soft top jeep with knobby tires. I would sometimes thing the window was down when forced to drive next to a semi. Then there was the hardest working bluetooth I have ever seen. Drop connect drop connect drop connect ! After about 5 minutes - Oh, would you like to connect your phone ? If you are any iphone user - good news. It will try to connect from 2 counties away. Then there was the bad strut klunk. I would like to think Honda/Acura has a "hire the disabled" program. I would, however, having ppl with hearing disabilities work in the road noise dept needs rethinking. Apparently engineers at Honda/Acura have never heard of noise damping matting. Look under the back deck BARE METAL. The road noise was simply unbelievable. Bare metal door and qtr panels. If you drive on anything other than smooth roads - rethink about the RDX.
