Powertrains and Performance

For drivers looking for a crossover that doesn’t shortchange utility in favor of comfort and luxury, the 2018 Acura RDX does a good job of providing both. The elements that make a vehicle capable on the road are important factors in its overall delivery of performance. And the RDX has them all in droves.

  • Powertrain – The RDX is powered by a 3.5L port-injection V6 engine that produces up to 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.
  • Transmission – Working in tandem with the engine is a 6-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. It allows drivers the option of automatic shifting or manual shifting at any time, increasing the level of engagement behind the wheel.
  • Drivetrain – A front-wheel drive configuration is the standard on the RDX, while an All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control system is available. With AWD, the RDX will easily take on slippery, wet, or icy road conditions and give drivers more tractive control and stability.
  • Chassis and Suspension – The RDX features four-wheel independent MacPherson strut front suspension, a front and rear stabilizer bar, all-season tires, and more to give an impressive performance in any and all weather conditions.
  • Towing Capacity – The RDX is equipped and ready to tow up to 1,500 pounds. So whether you’re towing a small trailer or a personal watercraft, the RDX has you covered.
  • Mileage – The 2WD RDX will achieve an EPA-estimated 20 city / 28 highway / 23 combined mpg.* For drivers who opt for AWD, you can expect a fuel economy of an EPA-estimated 19 city / 27 highway / 22 combined mpg.*

Cargo Space

The RDX provides a spacious cargo area to store everything you might need. U.S. New and World Report notes that it offers “more overall cargo space than nearly all other class rivals.” The rear door opens up to the cargo area behind the second row of seats, measuring at 26.1 cubic feet of total volume. And for the times when you need to fit even more cargo than passengers, the versatile second row can be folded down flat and balloon the total cargo space to measure up to 61.3 cubic feet.

Passenger Space

Roomy and spacious, the RDX takes comfort seriously inside. Even tall passengers sitting the rear seat will have plenty of headroom and legroom with a total passenger volume measuring at 103.5 cubic feet. Ensuring that all five seats inside the RDX are adult-friendly has made the RDX one of the most spacious and comfortable cabins in its class.

  • Legroom – 42.0 inches in the front, 38.3 inches in the rear
  • Hip Room – 55.7 inches in the front, 53.8 inches in the rear
