The powerful 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V-6 engine produces an impressive 279 horsepower and 252 lbs.-ft. of torque, while the refined Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) system and low-friction technology produce class-leading efficiency.
Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) automatically changes the V-6 engine to run on six or three cylinders, depending on driving conditions, resulting in significantly improved highway fuel efficiency.
The 6-speed automatic transmission Sequential SportShift paddle shifters gives you the best of both worlds by providing the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting as well as shift-for-yourself control.
The RDX all-wheel drive system is designed to help maximize the use of available traction in both dry and slippery conditions, while minimizing system-wide friction and power loss to help optimize fuel efficiency.
The RDX front strut and rear multi-link suspension systems are tuned to provide a combination of secure handling and exceptional ride. The RDX was one of the first Acura model equipped with Amplitude Reactive Dampers, which have now spread across all Acura model lines.
The electronic power steering provides a smooth, linear transition between the generous power assist at low speeds and a firmer feel at higher speeds.
Since performance driving requires precision braking, the RDX features a firm pedal feel with linear response and is backed by 4-channel anti-lock brakes, Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist systems.
The less flex there is in the body, the more precisely the suspension can be tuned for an optimal combination of handling and ride. For the previous model year, Acura took the impressive second-generation RDX body structure and increased rigidity still further.
While developing the second-generation RDX, one of our primary goals was to make the vehicle more enjoyable for both driver and passengers by reducing noise, vibration, and harshness.
All RDX models are equipped with a rearview camera50 that automatically produces three available views of the area behind the vehicle when "reverse" is engaged. The standard system has a 5-inch, full-color display above the center controls. Navigation system-equipped models use the 8" navigation screen.
Whether backing out of parking space or onto a busy street, the RDX has your back.
Stunning, highly illuminating Jewel Eye® LED headlights are standard on all RDX models. Five low-profile LEDs per headlight provide a whiter, brighter beam while using less energy and lasting significantly longer than HID or traditional halogen headlights.
The Advance Package includes parking sensors for both the front and rear.
The Keyless Access System with smart entry and pushbutton ignition allows you to walk up to the RDX, unlock the doors, have the car set your preferences and start the engine without ever having to take the key out of your pocket.
Press a button on the key fob, and the tailgate will automatically open for you. And when you're finished loading or unloading, press the button again, and it will power down and latch.
On models with the Advance Package, the RDX engine can be started remotely so that the engine is warmed up and the cabin is either heated or cooled appropriately by the time you arrive.
When the wiper control is set to auto, sensors observing the presence of rain on the windshield will automatically turn on the wipers when needed.
The sophistication of the RDX interior begins with the plush feel of the seats, which are ergonomically designed to provide the support of a luxury sport sedan.
The RDX can comfortably seat three adults in the rear.
The cargo area of the second-generation RDX is more accessible than ever before.
In addition to a generous cargo area, the RDX has many easily accessible storage areas throughout the cabin.
The RDX dashboard sports the dual-cockpit design found on all Acura models. With its elegant shapes, refined materials and intuitive functionality, it was smartly designed to enhance your driving enjoyment.
Leading the way in audio and information Technology Plus has its advantages-and its challenges. So as the number of features and music sources have increased, Acura designers foresaw a very crowded center panel. The solution is an intuitive touchscreen called On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) that consolidates the controls drivers need at any given moment. What could have been more than 30 buttons has been simplified to nine.
The RDX dual-zone, automatic climate control system allows the driver and front passenger to create their own microclimates.
The automatic climate control system benefits from a GPS-linked solar sensor10 on models equipped with the Technology Package.
The voice recognition feature that accompanies the optional Acura Navigation System10 allows you to perform the most frequently used functions of the audio, climate control, and navigation systems without ever taking your hands off the wheel.
Check in with the office without taking your eyes off the road. The Bluetooth®11 HandsFreeLink® system works with most Bluetooth-enabled cell phones to let you initiate and receive calls using the RDX audio system. For more details, please visit the Acura HandsFreeLink minisite.
Handheld texting while driving is illegal in most states and highly dangerous in all states. The integrated SMS text message function44 enables you to respond to incoming text messages while minimizing the potential driver for distraction.
If you have an iPhone® with Siri, and an RDX model with the Technology Package, you can use the Siri feature without touching the phone.
Models without the navigation system are equipped with a 5-inch, full-color, center display screen that offers a variety of information.
Audio & Navigation
The easy-to-operate standard RDX audio system offers clear, dynamic sound with seven speakers around the cabin, including an 8-inch subwoofer. A large display at the top of the instrument panel provides detailed audio information. The system can accommodate a wide variety of audio sources, which include:
Grammy® award-winning recording engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner helped design the Acura/ELS Surround®32 Premium 10-speaker Sound System to reproduce music the way it is heard in the recording studio. As a result, surround sound fills the car from any stereo digital source. In addition to all the source inputs of the standard RDX audio system, features of the ELS Studio Premium Audio System include: Learn more about ELS Studio Premium Audio System
In the RDX, you can take your digital music library along for the ride on your iPod, USB flash drive or compatible phone. You can even have your own personal DJ with Pandora®45 loaded on an iPhone.
While you may be aware that SiriusXM's4 programing includes over 150 stations delivered with clear digital sound, SiriusXM® in the RDX provides several additional feature to make you listening experience even more enjoyable.
The Song By Voice® feature uses the Voice Recognition system to help the RDX driver find music on a USB7-connected iPod®8 simply by voicing a preference.
The centerpiece of the Technology Package, the Acura Navigation System10, in conjunction with the AcuraLink®, is perhaps the best driving companion since the invention of the car radio.
The AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™57 feature helps you steer clear of gridlock by providing continuously updated traffic information in major metropolitan areas across the 48 contiguous United States.
A significantly enhanced AcuraLink®70 graces the RDX. Thanks to an embedded cellular device, the AcuraLink system now features two-way communication making it even more versatile. In an emergency, location and diagnostic information can be sent and retrieved from the car. Greater interaction with your smartphone enables even more available services. While many AcuraLink features are complimentary others require a subscription. Some of the systems highlights are:
The Acura Navigation System10 has an extensive database of addresses and points of interest for a variety of handy information.
Safety & Driver Assistance
Conventional cruise control has always been welcome on long highway trips but is of little use on an urban driver's daily commute. Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) allows you to set a desired speed but also maintain a desired interval to the car detected ahead so you enjoy the benefits of cruise control in light traffic.
It's the best kind of backseat driver. Using a forward-facing camera mounted above the inside rear view mirror, the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)59 works proactively to keep the RDX inside a detected lane.
The RDX can be equipped with a blind spot information (BSI) system that assists you when making lane changes.
The RDX is equipped with a sophisticated six-airbag system, which includes two front and two front side airbags, and two side curtain airbags with coverage for the front and outboard rear seats. All five seating positions in the RDX have 3-point belts and head restraints. The front seats also have load-limiting tensioners.
The RDX has several features addressing child safety, from sophisticated airbag sensors to anchors that secure child seats.
To enhance occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions, the RDX features next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure.
Since an under-inflated tire impedes handling and can be a safety hazard, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) uses pressure sensors mounted in each wheel that send readings to a central electronic control unit. The system then evaluates whether the pressure is in an acceptable range.
To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, the AcuraWatch Plus Package features the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)61
The RDX disc brakes are backed up by several sophisticated electronic systems to provide you with enhanced braking under any circumstance.
The Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)12 system uses an array of sensors along with ABS to minimize the dangers of oversteer or understeer.
The RDX comes equipped with a security system that has enhanced capabilities due to the new AcuraLink® system.
