Breaking Down the Specs of the 2015 Acura RDX

January 15th, 2015 by

You’ve seen the pictures, now get a load of the specs of the 2015 Acura RDX. Acura’s compact crossover may seem like it’s actually bigger on the inside with all of the passenger and storage space, but we’ve got the numbers to show you that Acura designers have just made use of every cubic inch at their disposal.

Exterior Dimensions

The RDX looks small enough to easily slide into a tight parallel parking space, and it is. With a wheelbase of 105.7 inches, a length of 183.5 inches, and a width of 73.7 inches, Acura’s crossover has certainly earned its “compact” look, but when you take a look at its interior specs, it’s clear that it is about as spacious and “un-compact” as you can get.

Interior Dimensions

The RDX features 38.7 inches of front headroom, 42.0 inches of front legroom, 55.7 inches of front hiproom, and 58.7 inches of front shoulder room, giving you and your passenger plenty of space to move around.

Rear seat passengers will be comfortable a swell thanks to the 38.1 inches of headroom, 38.3 inches of legroom, 53.8 inches of hiproom, and 57.2 inches of shoulder room. Overall, you’ll have access to 103.5 cubic feet of passenger space and as much as 76.9 cubic feet of cargo storage.

Like we said, it makes the most of all of its interior space, and though it looks like a compact crossover and handles like a compact crossover, the interior feels like a full-size vehicle.

Engine Specs and Fuel Economy

Under the hood of the 2015 RDX is a 3.5L V6 engine capable of 273 hp at 6200 RPM and 251 hp at 5000 RPM, and RDX FWD models earn an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 28 mpg.* Power and efficiency combine in this state-of-the-art V6 engine to give drivers access to practically everything they could want in a luxury crossover.
