The 2017 Acura RDX Interior: Features, Cargo Capacity, and Seating Configurations

  • Acura RDX

    Versatility is what makes the crossover one of the most popular vehicle types among our Chicago drivers, and few can match up to the 2017 Acura RDX cargo capacity, storage, and seating configurations. Between this cleverly designed cabin and its interior features, it’s no wonder we’ve seen so many RDX models in and around the Windy City. See how the specs break down below before visiting one of our locations to feel the comfort of the driver’s seat for yourself.

Seating Configurations

With seating for up to five passengers, the 2017 Acura RDX interior is perfect for the family on the go, and its spacious interior ensures that there’s room for kids or adults in the backseat.

  • Headroom: 38.7 inches in the front and 38.1 inches in the rear
  • Legroom: 42.0 inches in front and 38.3 inches for rear passengers
  • Hip Room: 55.7 inches of front hip room and 53.8 inches in the rear
  • Shoulder Room: 58.7 inches of front shoulder room with 57.2 inches in back
  • Total Passenger Volume: With a passenger volume of up to 103.5 cubic feet, all five passengers should have plenty of space to get comfortable.

Of course, you won’t always need to fill up all five seats, and sometimes the cargo area of the RDX takes priority. With the 60/40-split folding rear seat, you can fold down one, two, or all three of the rear seats to expand the cargo area while still offering plenty of seating in the cabin.

Cargo Capacity and Storage

The 2017 Acura RDX cargo capacity with all seats up is 26.1 cubic feet, which is more than enough space for the average load of groceries, the kids’ backpacks and school gear, or the family’s luggage for a vacation. But when you need more room—like when it’s time to move one of the kids into their college dorm—the cargo area can expand to as much as 76.9 cubic feet with the second row of seating down.

The RDX also has plenty of other cargo storage and hauling options, including:


RDX Center Console Storage

Center Console: More than just a convenient place to keep your smartphone, wallet, and other items, the center console is conveniently located near charging ports and features an upper phone tray so your device is always within reach.

RDX Door Storage

Door Pocket Storage: Feel free to tuck some of the essentials away, knowing that a winter hat or a pair of gloves is never far out of reach when it’s in one of the door pocket storage spots.

RDX Seat Pocket Storage

Seatback Storage: Keep an atlas, books, a tablet, or other thin cargo stored in the backs of the front seats so the kids have them within easy reach on a long drive.

RDX Power Tailgate

Remote Power Tailgate: Standard on the RDX, the tailgate of the crossover opens up with just the push of a button on your key fob, and you can close it the same way as you’re walking away.

RDX Towing Capacity

Towing Capacity: When properly equipped, the 2017 Acura RDX is able to tow as much as 1,500 pounds. If there’s not enough cargo room inside, just hook up a trailer.

RDX Roof Rails

Roof Rails: The available roof rails accessory allows you to expand cargo capacity and storage as well. Add an extra cargo carrier on top or mount special gear to carry bikes, snowboards, skis, and more.
