Doh, how could I forget those!
The EX and the GLK are much more expensive, no, especially when you start tacking on options? Not to mention, I think the EX might as well be called an Infiniti Outback because it looks more like a tall station wagon than a small SUV. As for the RDX? I've never been a fan of overpriced Hondas, though the RDX is priced very competitively compared to the X1, as long as you don't factor in the added you equipment you get for the higher X1 price (again, we're talking loaded machines here). I imagine the Q3 will be the closest competitor, which isn't a surprise, even though it's a FWD-based SUV.
