Acura have really done their best to pack as much new technology as possible into the RDX. That starts with the engine and drivetrain. The RDX is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. This engine combination is good for 272 horsepower and 280 lbs.-ft of torque.
The RDX comes in just one well equipped trim level. Standard features on the RDX include LED Jewel Eye Headlights, LED taillights, 19-inch wheels, automatic headlights, heated side mirrors, faux leather seating surfaces, heated 12-way power adjustable front seats and dual-zone climate control. Standard interior tech includes Bluetooth, adaptive cruise control, a lane keep assist system, active sound control, a 9-speaker sound system, SiriusXM satellite radio, multiple USB ports, a 10.2-inch touchscreen, a 7-inch color multi-information display for the driver, mobile hotspot capability, AcuraLink, a Siri Eyes Free mode for iPhone users, voice recognition, HomeLink and a compass. Drivers and passengers will be able to control that tech through Acura's new True Touchpad interface that features a touchpad in the center console, which can be used to control the center display screen.
Three option packages are available for the RDX. A Technology Package adds perforated leather trimmed seats, a GPS linked climate control system, a 12-speaker premium audio system, HD radio, a blind spot information system, rear cross traffic monitoring and front and rear parking sensors.
An Advanced package adds heated and ventilated front seats, auto-dimming side mirrors, fog lights and parking sensors.
The A-Spec Package includes 20-inch dark grey wheels, unique front and rear bumpers, LED fog lights, a sportier grill, dual exhaust pipes, a gloss black rear spoiler, heated and ventilated front seats, a black headliner, red instruments, red cabin lighting, sport pedals and a 16-speaker premium sound system.
