Bold styling, a luxurious tech-filled cabin, and legendary Acura reliability make the redesigned 2020 Acura RDX one of the best selling SUVs on the market today. This year’s RDX comes in five trims – Base RDX, Tech, A-Spec, Elite, and Platinum Elite. Acura prices the new RDX with MSRPs of $46,196 (RDX base), $49,496 (Tech), $51,996 (A-Spec), $51,696, Elite), and $56,196 ( Platinum Elite).
Entertainment comes standard on the 2020 RDX. Base models come equipped with an Acura Premium audio system featuring an AM/FM radio, MP3 and Windows media playback capability, and 9 speakers, including a subwoofer. Tech and Elite models get an upgraded 12-speaker ELS Studio Premium system. A-Spec and Platinum Elite owners enjoy 16-speaker sound from an Acura ELS Studio 3D Premium system. All systems feature Bluetooth streaming, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto compatibility.
Regardless of trim, every 2020 RDX comes loaded with advanced Acura technology. Features like Acura Navigation with Voice Recognition (excluding base trims), a rearview camera, and a colour TFT multi-information display provide exceptional convenience. A 260-mm HD colour centre display featuring Acura’s True Touchpad Interface makes finding music, making calls, and getting directions a snap. Standard driver-assist technologies on the new RDX include Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Lane Keeping Assist, and Blind Spot Warning (all but base trims).
As advertised, the 2020 RDX delivers big when it comes to comfort, convenience, and luxury. Every new RDX comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, an in-cabin air-filtration system, and twelve-way power-adjustable driver and front passenger seats with two-position memory and power lumbar support. Acura’s Active Noise Cancellation, along with Active Sound Control, and an acoustic windshield keep things exceptionally quiet on the inside. Every new RDX also comes with push-button ignition, heated seats, and leather or leatherette upholstery. Remote start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and Walk-Away Door Lock round out just a few more of the many interior highlights on this year’s Acura RDX.
Along with the driver-assist technologies previously mentioned, Acura employs a wide range of passive safety technologies across its entire line of vehicles, as well. Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure distributes energy evenly throughout the entire vehicle body to keep occupants exceptionally safe in the event of a collision. Every new RDX also comes with a full suite of airbags (including dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags), Brake Assist, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, and childproof rear door locks.
Acura keeps things simple when it comes to powering the new RDX. All trims get a 2.0-litre, 272-horsepower, four-cylinder, 16-valve, Direct Injection, turbocharged VTEC engine linked to a ten-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control. Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive – standard on all models – provides seamless power transitions and exceptional agility by continuously directing power to match available traction, driver input, and weight distribution. Fuel economy numbers come in at 11.0/8.6/9.9 city/hwy/combined for all models.
