 A Closer Look at the 2020 Acura RDX


The new RDX combines luxury and functionality to bring you a crossover SUV that meets all your driving needs in an elevated style, intentionally made to make you feel like royalty. The RDX has a spacious cabin, built with high-grade Brushed Aluminum and available Natural Olive Ash Burl Wood. Interior seats are sewn with available soft, full-grain Milano leather, with available heating and cooling for optimal climate control. With a leather-wrapped steering wheel and ambient interior lighting, every aspect of the new RDX is made to enhance your driving experience.

The RDX’s exterior catches eyes from every angle. Its body comes with a dynamic shape and Diamond Pentagon grille. Its body is accented with the functionality of LED-Illuminated Dragon Taillights. The standard Panoramic Moonroof connects you and your passengers to the outside world, even once inside the RDX’s doors. 


Two powertrain options both bring powerful engines that will empower you with improved handling and driving confidence. The two power options that deliver incredible performance are as follows:

  • A 2.0L turbo engine with Front-wheel drive (FWD) and 272 horsepower incorporates a 10-Speed Automatic Transmission for powerful, smooth transitions as you drive. The engine also comes with Electronic Gear Selector and Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters for further enhanced handling.
  • The Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) also features a 2.0L turbo engine with 272 horsepower and 10-Speed Automatic Transmission. Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters partner with SH-AWD® to create sharper handling at every turn.

The performance of the new RDX adapts to changes as necessary. Available Adaptive Damper System balances comfortable cruising with firm handling, based on what you need in the current moment. It can adjust suspension responsiveness in a split second to keep its mode relevant to the road. Also able to adapt, the Dual Pinion, part of the Variable Ratio Electric Power Steering system, rides with lighter feel at slow speeds and a stability-enhancing feel at faster speeds. Third, the Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) gives four driving modes to choose from, based on current road conditions. Simply put, the new RDX gives you an empowered, adaptable ride that will make you never want to end the day’s drive home.


The new RDX effortlessly keeps you connected to your phone, making it easier to keep your attention on the road. Standard integrations of Apple CarPlayand Android Auto™ feature on the 10.2-inch full HD center display, both easily controlled on the True Touchpad Interface for ultimate connectivity.

Available Key by Amazon In-Car Delivery creates the ultimate connectivity convenience. Receive packages in a secure space by directing your Amazon Prime purchases to delivery in the trunk of your RDX.

Innovation in the new RDX works to help you achieve a safer, more confident driving experience. This is accomplished with AcuraWatch™, the Acura’s standard suite of advanced safety driver-assist features, which include the following: 

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Road Departure Mitigation
  • Blind Spot Information System
