Your refuge from the road

2016 RDX

The 2016 Acura RDX is designed for the Chicago driver, giving you the right size crossover for nearly any situation. Zipping through the city streets, the RDX is slim, sporty, but when you need to head onto a road trip, Acura’s crossover has plenty of room inside. And no matter where you take it, it’s a comfortable ride.

Efficient. Powerful.

Acura engineers have crafted the RDX to move with purpose, from its powerful V6 engine to its front and rear suspension setup to its state-of-the-art steering system. The all-aluminum engine construction helps to reduce the overall weight of the RDX and offer superior handling while Variable Cylinder Management ensures you’re always using the cylinders you need rather than burning fuel while cruising.

    3.5L V6 Engine

    Standard across all 2016 RDX models, the 3.5L V6 is rated at 279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque with low-friction tech, Variable Cylinder Management, and an advanced automatic transmission for high fuel economy. 2016 RDX FWD models are rated at an EPA-estimated 29 highway and 20 city mpg while RDX AWD models come in at 28 highway and 19 city mpg.[1]

    Variable Cylinder Management

    If you’re wondering how Acura’s crossover can hit such remarkable fuel economy numbers, it’s because the engine knows when it needs to fire on all cylinders – and when it doesn’t. Variable Cylinder Management lets the RDX shut down as many as three cylinders to conserve fuel when cruising.

    Paddle Shifters

    The automatic transmission of the 2016 Acura RDX ensures you have one of the most fuel efficient drivers, whether it’s in the city of Chicago or commuting in from the suburbs, but some drivers want the control offered by a manual transmission. And Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters are mounted on the steering wheel to let you switch gears at the flick of a wrist.

    All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control

    The available all-wheel drive system on the RDX sets itself apart from other AWD setups by maximizing traction whether the road is slippery or dry. The “Intelligent Control” part works to reduce system-wide friction and deliver optimal fuel economy.

    Suspension Systems

    A front strut suspension and a rear multi-link suspension deliver an exceptional ride to the RDX while offering secure handling. Amplitude Reactive Dampers and a lower center of gravity than most SUVs provide superior stability. During hard cornering, the RDX’s anti-squat geometry helps maintain composure, isolating dampers and springs from any lateral forces

    Steering System

    A new electronic power steering system offers up linear, smooth transitions between low-speed power assist and the firmer feeling that comes at high speeds. Electronic power steering doesn’t drain engine power, helping to improve overall efficiency, and the steering column rigidity reduces steering wheel vibration.


Distinctly Acura

The RDX is refined, with an aerodynamic body and an aggressive stance that help differentiate it from the everyday crossover while remaining true to Acura’s timeless, clean design. Upgraded wheels, a redesigned set of fasciae, a new grille, and the Jewel Eye LED headlights all define the RDX as something bold, something new. Something Acura.

    Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

    Whenever you shift into reverse, the rearview camera display comes up on the RDX’s display screen (5-inch on standard models, 8-inch on navigation systems). With the push of a button, you can switch between one of three different views: top-down, wide-angle, and standard. Back up with confidence in an RDX.

    Keyless Access

    Your RDX knows when the key fob is nearby, letting you walk up to the RDX and unlock the doors without even having to dig for your keys. Get behind the wheel and push the “start” button, and the RDX revs to life. The car will even know your preferences when you get in the driver’s seat.

    Acura Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    These Acura-exclusive headlights are just as recognizable as the “A” branding the RDX. With five low-profile LEDs on each light and reflectors that retain their jewel-like appearance even when your lights are off, the Jewel Eye LEDs are unlike any other headlights, delivering whiter, brighter lights while using less energy than traditional bulbs.


Elegant and highly functional

Perforated leather seating brings luxury and comfort to every RDX, and the 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat (with lumbar support) makes getting comfortable behind the wheel even easier. When you don’t need to transport people, the rear seat easily folds down, flat to the floor for plenty of cargo space.

    Elegant shapes and soft-touch materials give the dual-cockpit design of the RDX a welcoming feel whether you are behind the wheel or in the passenger seat. Touchscreens are seamlessly integrated into the design, looking like an actual part of the RDX instead of an add-on like on many competing crossovers.

    Cargo Space

    With a standard 26.1 cubic feet of cargo space, expandable to as much as 76.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded out of the way, the cargo hold of the RDX is ready to haul nearly anything. With the rear seats up, it can fit two 29-inch roller bags, two 21-inch roller bags, and two 16-inch carry-ons.

  • 2016 Acura RDX

    Audio Interface

    Experience a clear, dynamic audio from the RDX’s stereo system with 6 speakers and an 8-inch subwoofer. With the USB audio input, you can plug in an external hard drive, flash drive or iPod, you can take your full digital music library on the road with you, too.

  • 2016 Acura RDX

    Bluetooth HandsFreeLink

    Up to six different Bluetooth devices can be synced up to your RDX. Stay connected on the road with handsfree texting capabilities, handsfree phone calls, and streaming audio (including Pandora). Once your phone is paired, the RDX will recognize it as soon as you get behind the wheel, syncing up automatically.

  • 2016 Acura RDX

    SMS Text Messaging

    It’s illegal to text and drive in most states, and whether or not it’s against the law, it is always dangerous. The integrated SMS texting capabilities of the RDX allows you to receive and respond to SMS text messages delivered to your phone without ever taking your phone out of your pocket or purse.

    5-inch Color Display

    The available navigation system upgrades the size of the color display, but even standard RDX models feature a 5-inch color display that lets you manage vehicle settings, display current audio information, sync your Bluetooth devices, and more.


Advancing auto safety features

The spacious and versatile interior makes the RDX a smart choice for young families, but before the features, before the comfortable seating and the fuel efficient powertrain, you need to know that the RDX is safe for your family. From its frame to its high-tech AcuraWatch Plus accident avoidance features, the RDX makes safety a top priority.

    Body Structure

    Acura engineers begin building for safety with the frame, using an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. The ACE design does more than implement crumple zones; it actively helps to redirect crash energy during an accident, preventing it from concentrating in one part of the vehicle.

  • 2016 Acura RDX

    Tire Pressure Monitoring

    If the tires on your RDX are not properly inflated, the vehicle’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System issues a warning on the dash. Under-inflated tires can drastically affect traction and lead to uneven wear, increasing the likelihood of a blowout.

  • 2016 Acura RDX

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    By monitoring your wheels and driver input, Vehicle Stability Assist does exactly what it says it does: ensures you stay stable. If it detects that your wheels are heading one way and the steering wheel is directed another, it can adjust vehicle speed, torque, throttle position, and other variables to keep you stable and on the road.

  • 2016 Acura RDX

    Collision Mitigation Braking

    AcuraWatch Plus changes the world of safety, giving you an RDX that looks out for your needs. Collision Mitigation Braking uses radar and camera technology to detect when your RDX is headed for a likely collision, warning you and then applying the brakes if necessary.

  • 2016 Acura RDX

    Lane Keeping Assist

    A front-mounted camera monitors the markings on the pavement and alerts you if you have started to drift from the markings without putting your turn signal on. It can even initiate a slight tug on the wheel to put you back where you belong.

  • 2016 Acura RDX

    Child Safety

    LATCH-compliant safety seats are standard on the RDX, letting you connect and secure your child safety seats with ease. From baby up to toddler and even pre-school age, LATCH-compliant safety seats help make sure your child is safe and secure until he or she is old enough to wear a seat belt properly.
