2019 Acura RDX Performance Specs
Take a quick peek under the hood, and you’ll be impressed. The 2019 RDX is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L engine, which delivers 272 horsepower. It’s an agile ride, handling city streets and the highway travel without issue. Making 280 lb-ft of torque, this SUV can really push you back in your seat and surprise with its quickness.
This engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission which shifts quickly and features paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel for those who enjoy manual gear changes.
The available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system is able to boost performance on dry roads while providing all-weather advantages of conventional all-wheel drive. The system will determine the necessary power distribution between front and rear wheels. To improve fuel efficiency, the power will be sent to the front wheels when going in a straight line.
The Acura RDX cabin is driver-friendly, with comfortable seats and intuitive tech features which provide a home away from home. The sport seats provide better support than the entry-level ones, and 16-way power seats are available. A wide panoramic moonroof also comes standard regardless of the RDX you’re driving, with slide and tilt functionality and sunshade to keep the driver and passengers cool when the sun’s rays are bearing down.
Smart technology is everywhere in the RDX. With the True Touchpad Interface™ comes a traditional touchscreen with physical knob-style control. The interface includes a 10.2-inch high-definition center display mounted near the top of the center console, too, keeping the screen right in your line of sight.
The cabin also includes Apple CarPlay™ technology. This standard feature allows you to link an iPhone® to the touchscreen for access to text messages, music, and your favorite map apps.
Acura RDX Safety
It’s impossible to predict what’s ahead, but you can plan for it. The AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive features is there to help. Features like the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Road Departure Mitigation System are standard.
The Forward Collision Warning System warns you if a frontal collision is possible. An audible beep will sound if you do not brake in time or take preventive action. Meanwhile, the Lane Keeping Assist System keeps the RDX properly centered on a highway line by applying steering torque. These are just a couple of the standout safety features which come standard in this vehicle.
