FEATURE: The RDX uses a high-performance 3.5-liter 24-valve aluminum-alloy i-VTEC® V-6 engine that produces 279 horsepower
at 6200 rpm (SAE net) and 252 lb-ft of torque at 4900 rpm (SAE net) for exhilarating responsiveness. This engine features Variable
Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) for impressive fuel efficiency1 and overall performance, while meeting ULEV-22 emissions standards in
BENEFIT: This i-VTEC® V-6 engine provides exhilarating performance when drivers need it, while delivering efficiency that is among
the best in its class.1 If your client’s primary buying motivation is quality, note that the RDX engine won’t need a tune-up until about
FEATURE: The RDX offers AWD with Intelligent Control System™ for all-weather drivability. It is electronically activated, enabling power
to be sent to the rear wheels giving the driver added confidence in almost any driving condition, especially in inclement weather.
When the system senses a loss of front wheel traction, it automatically transfers some power to the rear wheels. This allows you to
utilize all available traction and may increase mobility.
BENEFIT: The RDX’s all-wheel-drive system automatically takes advantage of available traction to improve wet-weather handling and
driver confidence. The lightweight and compact design provides low friction, contributing to greater fuel efficiency.1
FEATURE: The shock absorbers feature two separate damping circuits with one tuned for maximum efficiency on smoother roads with
small inputs, and the other tuned to handle large inputs, such as rough roads, potholes, and sudden steering and braking action.
These advanced units provide firm damping for stable, flat cornering while also having the ability to absorb big bumps for a smooth,
comfortable ride – like having two suspensions in one.
BENEFIT: Amplitude-reactive dampers provide outstanding ride quality and handling quality under a wide range of road conditions.
FEATURE: The RDX’s 6-speed automatic transmission uses an Acura-exclusive, parallel-shaft design. As a result, it helps optimize engine

BENEFIT: A parallel-shaft transmission is typically more efficient and can shift faster than a planetary-gear design for better passing
power, and can even provide better fuel efficiency1 over transmissions that feature more gears.
FEATURE: Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters provide a sporty driving experience. Drivers can use them to change between 1st
and 6th gears without removing your hands from the steering wheel. Each paddle shift operation makes a single gear change. To
change gears continuously, release the paddle shifter before pulling it again for the next gear. The vehicle will go into the sequential
shift mode, and the M (sequential shift mode) indicator and gear position indicator will come on.
BENEFIT: Paddle shifters allow the driver to control transmission shifting without taking their hands off the steering wheel.
FEATURE: Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) works in conjunction with the i-VTEC® system and Active Control engine Mounts
(ACM) to help maximize fuel efficiency and lower emissions. When high power is required, such as during acceleration or climbing
hills, the engine operates on all six cylinders. During periods of moderate-speed cruising and at low engine loads, the system
operates just one bank of three cylinders, thereby helping to maximize fuel efficiency.1 To smooth the transition between activating or
deactivating cylinders, the system adjusts ignition timing and Drive-by-Wire™ throttle position and turns the torque converter lockup on
and off. As a result, the transition between 3- and 6-cylinder operation is usually unnoticeable to the driver.
BENEFIT: VCM combines to help maximize performance and fuel efficiency – two characteristics that don’t typically coexist in
FEATURE: The RDX uses a front strut/rear multi-link, independent suspension system. The multi-link rear suspension geometry is optimized
for a flat ride during cornering, confident turning capability, and a sophisticated ride in a variety of urban, highway and open-road
scenarios. The system includes multi-link control arms, control-arm bushings that are optimized for the best blend of noise, vibration and
harshness (NVH) isolation, and handling precision. In addition, the compact design takes up less space, allowing for more cargo room
inside the vehicle.
BENEFIT: The suspension system helps provide an exhilarating driving experience while maintaining a high level of ride comfort

BENEFIT: Lightweight aluminum-alloy wheels reduce unsprung weight, helping to enhance vehicle ride and handling.
FEATURE: Active Sound Control is a key contributor to a quiet, refined interior. It is comprised of dual overhead microphones, an
electronic processor, and the audio system’s speakers. The system operates whenever the engine is running, even if the audio system is
turned off. Active Sound Control is designed to reduce low-frequency sound in the cabin caused mainly by the roughness of the road
surface. The overhead microphones pick up sound waves and send them to the processor, which creates and sends a precisely timed
“reverse phase” audio signal to a special amplifier. In turn, the amplifier drives the door speakers to cancel the original noise signal.
BENEFIT: Active Sound Control helps enhance interior quietness and improve the driving experience.
FEATURE: The RDX has an impressive 76.93 cubic feet of cargo volume and a generous 48.8-inch rear door opening. It can more

moonroof to quickly vent built-up interior heat.
BENEFIT: Smart Entry with pushbutton start adds convenience by eliminating the need to physically unlock the doors or trunk with
a key or remote, or start the vehicle with a key.
FEATURE: The advanced airbag system13 uses weight sensors in the front passenger seat and a position sensor for the driver seat as
elements in determining the manner of deployment for the driver’s and front passenger’s front airbags.13 Based on input the SRS control
unit receives from these and other sensors, it can decide whether to deploy the airbags and adjust the deployment force and timing for
both front airbags. If the sensors detect the weight of a child (up to 65 lb. or 29 kg), the system will automatically turn off
the passenger’s front airbag.13
BENEFIT: Advanced airbags are designed to supplement the seat belts to help reduce the likelihood of head and upper body injuries
in frontal crashes.13
FEATURE: The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is Acura’s proprietary ACE body structure design. It uses
a network of connected structural elements to distribute frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle, helping to
reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment. It can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles
in a crash as well. ACE also helps reduce the chances that one vehicle will override another, improving crash compatibility of vehicles
that differ in size.
BENEFIT: This enhanced frontal crash energy management is designed to help reduce the likelihood of occupant injury in a frontal
crash, making for greater client confidence. Inform clients whose primary buyer motivation is safety that the ACE™ body structure is
anticipated to help the RDX receive a “Good” rating in the IIHS small overlap front crash test. This highest-possible rating is likely to
surpass those earned by some key competitors in this highly demanding test.
FEATURE: Blind spot information14 uses radar sensors located in the rear bumper that can detect when another vehicle is alongside or
just to the rear in an adjacent lane. Depending on which side the other vehicle is detected, the system will illuminate a warning light
located near the outside rearview mirror. If the driver uses the turn signals to indicate a lane change, the system will issue an audible
tone as well.
BENEFIT: Blind spot information14 adds convenience by helping alert the driver that a vehicle may exist in the driver’s blind spot.
FEATURE: The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)15 uses audio, visual and tactile signals to alert the driver to the risk of a
frontal collision. CMBS is one of the most sophisticated safety systems available. The system can even take action to reduce the forces
of a collision if the system determines one to be unavoidable.
BENEFIT: CMBS™15 is designed to alert the driver to a potential collision and can take proactive action to help reduce collision
forces if one becomes unavoidable.
FEATURE: Forward Collision Warning (FCW)16 can detect vehicles ahead, determine if a collision is likely and alert the driver. The
system uses a camera mounted in the upper portion of the windshield to detect vehicles ahead and determine whether a collision is
likely. It also features millimeter-wave radar to detect vehicles. If the system detects a vehicle in front of the car and determines that a
collision may occur, it will trigger visual and audible alerts. A “Brake” message appears on the MID and a series of beeps sound to
alert the driver to apply the brake pedal. FCW will not automatically brake and the driver remains responsible for safely operating the
vehicle and avoiding collisions.
BENEFIT: Forward Collision Warning (FCW)16 can reduce the stress of driving in traffic while also providing an increased level of
active safety for the driver.
FEATURE: Hill start assist offers drivers additional convenience when starting to drive uphill or downhill. It will hold the brake pressure
when stopped on an incline or descent for a brief period of time, allowing the driver’s foot to move from the brake pedal to the
accelerator without having the vehicle start to move backward.
BENEFIT: Hill start assist enhances confidence by allowing the driver to make smooth, sure takeoffs when driving in hilly terrain.
FEATURE: The Lane Departure Warning (LDW)17 system is designed to alert the driver if the vehicle is leaving a detected lane without
a turn signal activated. LDW uses a camera mounted behind the windshield near the rearview mirror. The camera is designed to
recognize lane markings, so the system can detect when the vehicle is about to leave its lane. The system engages at speeds from
40 to 90 miles per hour on relatively straight or slightly curved roads.
BENEFIT: LDW17 can help reduce the stress of driving on the open road while providing an increased level of active safety for
FEATURE: The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)11 is designed to assist a driver in maintaining proper lane position when lane
markings are identified without a turn signal in use. The system uses a windshield-mounted camera to look for lane markers and a
steering-wheel actuator. The system is able to identify Botts’ Dots and other lane markings, and works at speeds of 45 mph and higher.
The system will not work at speeds above 90 mph. If LKAS determines that the vehicle is deviating from a detected lane with no turn
signal in use, LKAS applies mild steering torque to assist in bringing the vehicle back to center. This can be especially useful when
traveling on narrow roadways, such as carpool lanes.
BENEFIT: LKAS11 helps to enhance steering precision and provides a more relaxing driving experience on narrow roadways.
FEATURE: The multi-view rear camera helps enhance visibility when backing out of a parking space or driveway. When the
transmission is placed in Reverse, the rear camera image appears on the upper screen. In addition to the “Normal view,” with 130
degrees of rearward visibility, the driver can select “Wide view,” with 175 degrees of rearward visibility or a “Top-Down view” of the
parking area. Pressing the selector knob – or interface dial on navigation-equipped models – easily changes views. To make it easier
for the driver to judge distances, yellow on-screen guidelines indicate the vehicle’s width, along with distances of approximately 3, 6
and 9 feet from the rear of the vehicle. Technology and Advance Package models add a Rear Cross Traffic Monitor18 and dynamic
guidelines to the rear camera system, making it easier to maneuver out of parking spots with greater confidence.
BENEFIT: Drivers can see a wider area behind them, enhancing both confidence and convenience when backing up. The multi-view
rear camera offers numerous innovations and special features. Make sure to review them with clients, demonstrate how the system
functions, and then let clients practice. Rear Cross Traffic Monitor18 helps improve driver confidence when backing out of a
FEATURE: Front and rear parking sensors use ultrasonic-wave technology to detect obstacles. If an object is detected, the system will
sound an audible alert and can display a warning icon in the Multi-Information Display (MID). The alert varies depending on how
far away the object is from the vehicle. The system begins with slow, intermittent beeps when an object is first detected at a distance
and progresses to quick intermittent beeps, as the vehicle gets closer to the object. The system will sound a continuous beep when the
object is very near and within a few inches of the vehicle.
BENEFIT: Parking sensors help give drivers improved confidence when maneuvering in tight spaces.
FEATURE: Rear Cross Traffic Monitor18 warns the driver when an approaching vehicle is detected while backing up. The system uses
radar sensors located in the rear bumper that can detect when another vehicle is approaching from either side of the vehicle. If another
vehicle is detected while backing up, such as reversing out of a parking spot, the system will issue an audible tone and on-screen
arrows to alert the driver.
BENEFIT: Rear Cross Traffic Monitor18 helps improve driver confidence when backing out of a parking spot.
FEATURE: Located in the Multi-Information Display (MID), the TPMS19 graphic indicates the pressure in all four tires on a real-time
basis. A TPMS icon illuminates to alert the driver whenever any of the tires has a significantly low-pressure reading that requires
the driver’s attention.
BENEFIT: TPMS19 helps the driver maintain proper air pressure to improve driving safety and fuel efficiency1, as well as reduce wear
and tear on the vehicle’s tires.
FEATURE: The Tire Sealant and Inflator Kit provides an auxiliary air or tire sealant to fill or repair a tire puncture. The kit contains a
12-volt compressor, an air pressure gauge and tire sealant in a compact, lightweight package. Two hoses are available, one for air
only and one for air and sealant.
BENEFIT: The Tire Sealant and Inflator is easy to use and provides peace of mind should an underinflated tire or puncture occur on
