Shift On Demand
The steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters work in two ways. In “Drive,” they make quick on-demand gear changes before returning to automatic operation once a steady speed is reached. In “Sport,” the first paddle shift puts you in full manual mode.
The 3.5-liter i-VTEC® engine pumps out a powerful 279 horsepower and 252 lbs.-ft. of torque. The broader torque curve results in a more immediate and powerful acceleration response you’ll feel every time you hit the gas.
The RDX connects to you and the world around it with available AcuraLink®.

You can even send a location from your smartphone or PC to the navigation system as a ready-to-drive route and, once on the road, AcuraLink®Real-Time Traffic™ continuously monitors traffic data to provide turn-by-turn directions to help you avoid any congestion.
