The 6-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters gives you the best of two worlds – providing the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting as well as shift-for-yourself control.
The Acura RDX engine is equipped with i-VTEC®, which produces power and efficiency from intelligent variable valve timing. It delivers 279-hp and 252 lb-ft of torque across a broad power curve, which transitions onto the road via the Drive-By-Wire system for a bold driving experience.
Optimize responsiveness with the transmission’s Sport Mode. Get quicker downshifts, higher revs before upshifting, or go into full manual mode with the paddle shifters.
Agile Handling Assist® uses the components of the Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) system to help improve handling. This RDX safety feature uses active braking, usually on an inside wheel, to help the driver smoothly and easily trace the desired line through a curve with smaller steering inputs.
Intelligent details like side-mirror turn signals offer an effortless layer of interaction with the environment around you.
The Jewel Eye® LED Headlights make a distinctive statement on Acura’s attention to precise design and alluring style.
The rear LED taillights have a clean light-pipe design that reflects our dedication to refinement.
The Acura RDX interior is designed around the driver. An impressive array of premium materials and finishes reflect your personal style. The two-tone dashboard features a soft-touch upper and an eye-catching aluminum brushed trim. Plush 10-way power seats keep you supported during long trips.
The RDX interior can comfortably seat three adults in the rear, offering each ample legroom and plenty of space under the front seats. Smart engineering allowed us to forego the hump in the middle and place a rear set of adjustable heating and cooling vents.
Keep your everyday essentials within reach. The front offers a covered compartment for wallet, phone and USB charging. The center console is large enough to fit a gallon of milk. Rear passengers will appreciate door panel storage with a small shelf for keys and a padded center armrest with dual cup holders.
Enjoy room to bring it all with RDX cargo space. Behind the rear seats is 26.1 cubic feet – plenty of space for two large suitcases and two carry-on bags. With both seatbacks down, RDX provides an abundant 76.9 cubic feet of total cargo space.
In wet or unstable conditions, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) can reduce the dangers of over and under steering and loss of traction by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary, reducing engine power.
This available convenience feature can detect a vehicle in the next lane’s alert zone while going over 20 MPH, with an indicator appearing near the side’s A-pillar. If you signal in the direction of that vehicle, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.
When reverse is engaged, the RDX Multi-View Rear Camera system can assist in navigating the tightest of spaces. Three angles – regular, wide and top-down – help you judge distances and guide trajectory. It can even indicate clearance for opening the power tailgate.
Experience a heightened sense of your surroundings. Our innovative available parking sensors can detect when the RDX is getting close to an object or surface with a series of beeps, which sound more rapid as you get closer.
