Acura RDX: More Standard Luxury For Your Money

RDX comes standard with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters, something you won’t find on QX50. And high performance doesn’t mean lower efficiency: RDX’s Variable Cylinder Management™ system works with the i-VTEC® engine for significantly improved fuel efficiency, giving RDX better city and highway MPG than QX50.

RDX features an abundance of standard luxury amenities that aren’t standard on QX50. Active Sound Control blocks engine noise for a quieter ride. RDX connects with Pandora® to stream your favorite music. Siri Eyes Free® lets you respond to texts and emails with your voice, meaning you can keep your eyes where they belong—on the road.
