Confidence is powered by performance. The 2018 Acura RDX deftly combines spaciousness and
comfort with exceptional handling and agility. 

2018 RDX Model Variations
2018 Acura RDX Models

The  model variations feature   high-output  direct-injected
i-VTEC® engine, with a 6-speed automatic transmission with grade logic and sport shift paddle shifters. two dynamic handling systems are available.

The powerful 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V-6 engine produces an impressive 279 horsepower and 252 lbs.-ft. of torque, while the refined Variable Cylinder Management (VCM II) system and low-friction technology produce class-leading efficiency.
VCM II enables cylinders to be shut off at cruising speeds in order to increase highway fuel efficiency. Fuel efficiency is enhanced by lower-friction piston rings, the ability to run on lower viscosity oil and transmission fluid, and other friction-reducing features.
The 6-speed automatic transmission Sequential SportShift paddle shifters give you the best of both worlds by providing the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting as well as shift-for-yourself control.
Tapping a paddle shifter while in “Drive” brings a quick gear change with automatic operation returning when reaching a steady speed. This allows you to make quick gear changes without changing in and out of manual mode.

The RDX all-wheel-drive system is designed to help maximize the use of available traction in both dry and slippery conditions while minimizing system-wide friction and power loss to help optimize fuel efficiency.
During moderate acceleration or when front wheel slip is detected in dry conditions, 25% of engine torque is transferred to the rear wheels. On a wet or slippery surface, wheel slippage will cause a reduction in engine output to the front wheels and possibly distribute torque 50/50 between the front and rear wheels.
2018 RDX Handling Technology
Suspension System
RDX Performance Braking
The RDX front strut and rear multi-link suspension systems are tuned to provide a combination of secure handling and exceptional ride. The RDX is also the first Acura model equipped with uniquely designed shock absorbers known as Amplitude Reactive Dampers.
The front Macpherson strut design is configured to offer long vertical wheel travel and excellent durability that will stand up to under-maintained city streets.
For an outstanding balance of comfort and precision handling, the rear suspension features a multi-link design similar to the one used on Acura sport sedans.
To maintain composure in hard cornering, the rear suspension features anti-squat geometry to reduce pitching under acceleration and also isolates springs and dampers from lateral forces.
Amplitude Reactive Dampers feature two piston valves per damper (a.k.a. shock absorber) rather than one. The main valve reacts to help absorb minor road vibration, while the second one is stiffer, reigning in a larger suspension motion for improved stability.
Stability is also enhanced by having a lower center of gravity than most SUVs, as well as a wide track and long, 105.7” wheelbase.
Since performance driving requires precision braking, the RDX features a firm pedal feel with linear response and is backed by 4-channel anti-lock brakes, Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist systems.

The 2018 RDX fills its 18-inch wheels with large 12.3-inch ventilated discs in the front and 12.0-inch solid discs in the rear, which resist brake fade even after continuous hard use.
Electronic Brake Distribution uses the anti-lock brake sensors to determine the proportion of brake force to be channeled to each wheel for increased performance and stability.

Fuel Economy
Variable Cylinder Management
The efficient front-drive model has an EPA fuel economy rating of 20 / 28 / 23 city/highway/combined, while the AWD model does nearly as well with a 19 / 27 / 22 rating with a 16.0 U.S. gallon fuel tank capacity.

VCM II enables cylinders to be shut off at cruising speeds in order to increase highway fuel efficiency. Fuel efficiency is enhanced by lower-friction piston rings, the ability to run on lower viscosity oil and transmission fluid, and other friction-reducing features.
Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) automatically changes the V-6 engine to run on six, four or three cylinders, depending on driving conditions, resulting in significantly improved highway fuel efficiency.
During startup, hard acceleration, hill climbing or when high output is required, the engine operates all six cylinders. At high-speed cruising or during moderate acceleration, two cylinders at opposite corners of the engine will switch off, enabling the engine to operate on four cylinders.
At low-speed cruising on city streets, the engine will shut down one cylinder bank and operate on the remaining three cylinders. The system monitors throttle position, vehicle speed, engine speed, gear selection to determine the correct cylinder activation for the operating conditions. The system also monitors catalytic converter temperature to make sure it remains in the proper range to keep emissions low.
2018 RDX Design
2018 Acura RDX Jewel Eye Headlights

Stunning, highly illuminating Jewel Eye® LED headlights are standard on all RDX models. Five low-profile LEDs per headlight provide a whiter, brighter beam while using less energy and lasting significantly longer than HID or traditional halogen headlights.  Using precisely-aimed lenses, the three outer LEDs on each light comprise the low beams and reveal the road more clearly without blinding oncoming traffic. The high beams add two inner LEDs to illuminate distant objects 200 milliseconds sooner than conventional lights. At 60 mph, that’s over 17 feet.Underlining the headlights is a distinctive LED light bar for Daytime Driving Light duty.When turned off, reflective surfaces behind the lenses contribute to the bright, jewel-like appearance.

2018 RDX Interior Features
HomeLink® Bluetooth®  HandsFreeLink® On Demand Multi-Use Display™ Multi-Information Display Siri Eyes Free technology
The sophistication of the Acura RDX interior begins with the plush feel of the seats, which are ergonomically designed to provide the support of a luxury sport sedan.

The Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® system works with many Bluetooth-enabled cell phones to let you receive and initiate phone calls through the RDX audio system without ever taking your hands off the wheel.
The entire HandsFreeLink® system is controlled through two buttons on the lower left of the steering wheel. The top button is the HFL Talk/engage button, which is recognizable by the phone icon. This button is used to answer a call and issue HFL voice commands.
The second control is the HFL back/end button, which is used to end a call or move back to a previous step in an HFL procedure.
All HFL visual displays are shown through the Multi-Informational Display located among the gauges in the instrument panel. Notification of incoming calls will appear automatically and the display will inform you of any next steps to be taken when pairing phones, downloading contacts or other HFL procedures
Acura has redirected the temptation to engage in hand-held texting with an integrated SMS text message function that enables you to respond to incoming text messages in a manner that helps mitigate any potential driver distraction.

When driving with a paired, activated, SMS-compatible phone, the system will notify you of an incoming text message.
Rather than avert your eyes from the road by reading the text on a display, the system will ask if you want it to “read” the message to you.
