2022 Acura RDX

For 15 years, the RDX has attracted legions of drivers in search of a crossover with something more. Its can’t-miss formula of upscale equipment, performance engineering, and comfortable space for five. And now, in its third generation, the RDX features even more refined driving characteristics and distinctive design, including an attention-getting pair of seven-LED Jewel Eye headlights.

A driving experience that's unrivalled in its class.

For 2022, the RDX gets a mild refresh with updated front and rear ends. Acura has also added more sound insulation for a quieter cabin and introduced the A-Spec Advance trim, which combines a long list of standard features with an extra-sporty appearance. This versatile crossover also supplies up to 79.8 cubic feet of cargo space (with the second row folded flat) and can pull up to 1,500 pounds with the optional towing package installed.

Trims & Powertrain

The 2022 RDX is sold in five trims (Acura calls them packages): Base, Technology, A-Spec, Advance, and A-Spec Advance. Underneath the hood of all versions is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 272 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s managed by a ten-speed automatic transmission paired with either standard front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. The EPA-estimated fuel economy varies depending on the trim and drivetrain. An FWD-equipped RDX gets 22 mpg around town and 28 mpg on the highway (this drops to 27 mpg for the A-Spec). In AWD form, the RDX delivers 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the open road (A-Spec highway mileage changes to 26 mpg).

Standard Features

Befitting Acura's premium status in the marketplace, even the base RDX comes well equipped, with desirable features like simulated leather seats (heated in the front row), a power liftgate, a panoramic sunroof, and dual-zone automatic climate control. It also has proximity keyless entry with push-button start, 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, a sound-reducing windshield, and 12-way power front seats.

The RDX Technology gets real leather seats, sound-deadening front windows, wireless device charging, LED ambient cabin lighting, front and rear parking sensors, and some infotainment upgrades (details are given below). The A-Spec builds on this by swapping exterior chrome treatments for black-finished accents and adding leather and Ultrasuede-trimmed upholstery, ventilated and heated front seats, LED fog lights, and 20-inch wheels.

The Advance elevates the RDX with an adaptive suspension, perforated leather upholstery, upgraded front seats (also with heating and ventilation), heated rear outboard seats, a heated steering wheel, remote start, a head-up display, a surround-view monitor, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a windshield wiper de-icer, wood cabin accents, power-folding side mirrors, and sound-reducing rear windows. The A-Spec Advance combines the unique exterior design of the A-Spec with the equipment level of the Advance.

Advanced Safety Systems

AcuraWatch is standard on all 2022 RDX trims. This state-of-the-art technology bundle enhances driver confidence and safety with forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, and traffic sign recognition. Other standard features in this category are a multi-view backup camera with dynamic guidelines, automatic high beams, blind-spot alert, and rear cross-traffic monitoring. A rearview camera washer and front and rear parking sensors are added at the Technology level, while the Advance and A-Spec Advance get a surround-view camera system and head-up warning.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Acura also packs the RDX with the latest technology for keeping its occupants connected, which begins with a generously sized (10.2-inch diagonal) infotainment display with a touchpad interface. Its other standard features are a nine-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Amazon Alexa, Bluetooth, and SiriusXM satellite radio. There are also dual USB ports, and access to a Wi-Fi hotspot and AcuraLink connected services. The Technology and higher trims add navigation and an audio upgrade to an ELS Studio system; the Technology gets 12 speakers and the A-Spec, Advance, and A-Spec Advance get 16.
