2021 Acura RDX Review

The Acura RDX is the SUV you’d expect from the people who build the NSX supercar. Surefooted handling and plenty of power. Athletic body design. The luxury and comfort of an ergonomically correct cabin. The RDX is available as one well-equipped model. Add the Technology Package for more convenience. Then add the A-Spec Package for more aggressive styling or the Advance Package for even better performance. Precision Crafted Performance is the design philosophy behind all Acuras. For example the Jewel Eye LED headlights don’t just look good they give impressive down-road visibility with an intense wide beam of light that reduces the fatigue of night-time driving. The luxurious interior is designed around you the driver. Like the way the True Touchpad Interface is located directly in front of the center armrest exactly where it should be. The turbocharged two-liter engine delivers 272 horsepower. Add available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive and you have a high-performance car that excels in low-performance weather on just about any road. Choose from a variety of colors options and Acura Genuine Accessories and build an RDX that’s all yours. The Acura RDX. The perfection you expect.
The Acura RDX is loaded with technology. AcuraLink brings Apple CarPlay integration to a 10.2-inch display—which your fingers will never smudge. Connect to the world with BNatural-Language Voice Recognition or by using your finger on the ergonomically placed True Touchpad Interface. Steer clear of traffic jams and save time with available AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic with Traffic Re-Routing. Available GPS-linked dual-zone climate control uses solar sensors to measure the intensity and position of the sun. Why? To keep the temperature where it’s set—no matter where you’re sitting. The Acura RDX. Precision-crafted technology.
Every Acura RDX comes with AAcuraWatch advanced safety and driver assist systems. Some standard systems alert you to things you might miss—like that car slamming on its brakes in front of you. Others keep you centered in your lane or make stop-and-go rush-hour traffic easier to handle. Additional available systems include Blind-Spot Information and Rear Cross-Traffic Monitoring. And if worse comes to worst Acura Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure evenly distributes frontal crash energy reducing forces transferred to the passenger compartment. The Acura RDX. Precision-crafted safety.
The Acura RDX has all the performance features you’d expect from the makers of the NSX supercar. Like a 272-horse two-liter inline four and a ten-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. Add available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive and you’re ready for anything. How do you get a comfortable ride and precise handling at the same time? That’s easy: Acura’s Integrated Dynamics System. Control throttle response steering feel shift points—even suspension damping. There’s a mode for every mood. The Acura RDX. Precision Crafted Performance.
