2016 Acura RDX


All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent 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.



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.



More Powerful. More Efficient. More Aggressively Styled.

The RDX’s versatile engine makes the most of every drive.The powerful 3.5­-liter i-VTEC® V­6 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.

The 6­-speed automatic transmission Sequential Sport-Shift 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.


Variable Cylinder Management

Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) automatically changes the V­6 engine to run on six or three cylinders, depending on driving conditions, resulting in significantly improved highway fuel efficiency.

Driver Assistance

The best kind of backseat driver.

Using a forward­facing 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.


Adaptive Cruise Control

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.


Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Since an under­inflated 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.


Body Structure

Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure design distributes frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle to reduce forces transferred to the passenger compartment.
