Acura RDX: A Triumph of Performance and Luxury
2021 Acura RDX
The Acura RDX combines spacious comfort with turbocharged performance, putting it miles ahead of the Lexus NX 300. Its VTEC® Turbo 2.0-liter engine boasts 272 horsepower3 and 280 lb-ft of torque4, giving you far more muscle than the NX 300. Torque vectoring, exclusive to the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), lets you channel that power for improved handling in almost any condition. Standard paddle shifters put control of all 10 gear ratios at your fingertips.
RDX also features a long list of standard luxury amenities you’ll have to pay extra for on NX 300. Heated front sport seats with 12-way power adjustment keep front-row occupants warm. An ultra-wide panoramic moonroof is featured on all grades. Class-leading rear cargo space includes nearly two cubic feet of compartmented underfloor storage. And unlike the Lexus, a fully-flat rear floor in the RDX enables first-class roominess for all five seating positions.
