2016 Acura RDX Review

The new 2016 Acura RDX may not be for everyone-unless, of course, you're interested in almost 80 cubic feet of cargo space, 279 horsepower, and a professionally designed audio system.

It's true that there probably aren't many drivers around the Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, or Aliso Viejo area who wouldn't be satisfied with what the Acura RDX has to offer.

At Norm Reeves Acura, we took a closer look at some of the key features of the new RDX to help our customers learn more about what this SUV has to offer. 

 

Acura RDX Design

The exterior design of the new Acura RDX has been carved with sleek lines and sharp features, giving it a fierce and athletic appearance.

The RDX has also been outfitted with high-performance Jewel Eye LED headlights that are capable of producing a brighter beam of light while using less energy. They even last longer than HID or halogen headlights.

Inside, the RDX provides a comfortable ride for all five passengers. Available perforated leather allows the front and rear seats to breathe better on warm days, while the ventilated front-row seat provides maximum comfort.

In terms of cargo area, the Acura RDX features a total of 76.9 cubic feet of space, with 26.1 cubic feet behind the rear seats.

For anything else, drivers can use the cabin storage compartments to hold their valuables while on the go, such as the center console compartment, which features a large bin, a convenient tray for your smartphone, and an accessory power outlet.

Acura RDX Performance Specs

To power this luxury vehicle, the 2016 Acura RDX uses a 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 engine. This powerful piece of machinery produces 279 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. Plus its Variable Cylinder Management system and low-friction technology help it to achieve optimal fuel efficiency.

The RDX also features a six-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters that allow drivers to utilize both automatic and manual shifting. That way you'll get the benefit of maximum fuel efficiency and added control during hilly or high-performance driving from the same engine.

Smart Technology

There's a lot of great technology inside the 2016 Acura RDX, but the two biggest installments are probably the audio and navigation systems.

For your listening pleasure, the RDX comes with a standard audio system of seven speakers, including a massive 8-inch subwoofer. Plus a large display on the instrument panel delivers detailed audio information right to you.


   

Or drivers can upgrade to the Acura/ELS Surround Sound System. Designed in part by the Grammy award-winning recording engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner, this 10-speaker sound system produces a premium sound experience.

Switching gears to the Acura's navigation system, this feature uses AcuraLink to deliver helpful turn-by-turn directions on an 8-inch screen. The system allows you to manually input an address or use the voice recognition system for added convenience. Plus AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic can help you avoid delays and get to your destination on time.
