2019 Acura RDX Offers Powerful Performance in a Luxury Crossover

The 2019 Acura RDX is a luxury crossover that offers drivers a dynamic and powerful performance on the road. With a turbocharged engine, available all-wheel drive, impressive fuel economy, and more, the RDX is sporty and versatile, whether you’re on the daily commute or the weekend adventure. It’s ranked #2 in Luxury Compact SUVs by U.S. News and World Report, which says the RDX “delivers on all fronts: it’s spacious, enjoyable to drive, and loaded with technology.” Coming in four packages with spacious and luxurious interiors, every model of the RDX out performs the competition on the road.


At the heart of the RDX is a Turbo Aluminum-Alloy 2.0L 4-cylinder. With athletic and agile handling, the RDX offers more horsepower than many of the rivals on the road, producing up to 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. It offers quick acceleration, which makes trickier driving situations, such as merging or passing on the highway, much easier, and gives more control to the driver.


Paired with the dynamic engine, the RDX features a 10-speed Automatic Transmission with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters. In the automatic mode, the driver can choose between economical or sport shifting for a more thrilling performance. Drivers can also switch to a fully manual mode with the Sport+ mode, and shift through the 10 gears smoothly and for an enhanced performance.

Available SH-AWD

The Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system from Acura is an innovative design that redirects engine power from the front to the rear and from side to side for a better overall performance. The system adapts and shifts power during turns to help the RDX through the corner more cleanly to create a “yaw” effect. In bad weather conditions or slippery roads, the system can shift more power to the wheels that have more traction and away form the wheels with less.

Fuel Efficiency

The RDX is not only a powerhouse, it also offers drivers impressive fuel efficiency. Depending on whether the standard front wheel drive or the available Super Handling all-wheel drive system is right for you, the RDX will achieve slightly different EPA fuel economy estimates. For drivers who want the best fuel economy, consider the front wheel-drive configuration and drive for longer distances on the road with less visits to the pump.

  • 2019 Acura RDX Standard FWD – 22 city / 28 highway / 24 combined mpg*
  • 2019 Acura RDX Standard SH-AWD – 21 city / 27 highway / 23 combined mpg*

Towing Capacity

For drivers who need the RDX to tow and haul cargo, both the front-wheel drive and the all-wheel drive configurations can tow up to 1,500 lbs. Attempting to tow a load that exceeds your vehicle’s limits is extremely dangerous, but for driver who need to tow lightweight trailers, teardrop campers, jet skis and the like, the RDX is ready.


The RDX incorporates an innovative suspension design and features to enhance its performance on the road. Able to absorb road bumps and irregularities while still offering a stiff, sport-tuned structure, the RDX offers a dynamic performance that is constantly adjusting to the road.

  • MacPherson Strut Front Suspension / Multi-Link Rear Suspension
  • Amplitude Reactive Dampers
  • Available Adaptive Damper System
  • 4-Mode Integrated Dynamics System
  • Agile Handling Assist

Active Safety Features Enhance Performance

The RDX features a long list of active safety features that actually improve its performance while avoiding safety risks in potentially dangerous driving situations and conditions. These features help the RDX maintain good, tractive control, come to a complete stop more quickly in an emergency braking situation, and prevents the wheels from locking up which can cause dangerous skidding across the road.

  • Agile Handling Assist
