Seductive styling, high performance and groundbreaking technology. This all-new RDX is redefining the SUV.



A Future Focused Design

Take a look at the bold new design, inside and out, from the ground up. Get ready to capture everyone’s attention.

Bold New Look

It only takes a quick glance to recognize the all-new RDX. The striking Diamond Pentagon grille adds to the sportiness and sleekness of the all-new front fascia and the latest version of Acura’s Jewel Eye

Exterior Highlights

The new RDX doesn’t have a bad side. Adding to the dynamic look of the body is a sculpted rear design, round exposed dual exhaust finishers, and LED taillights. The overall effect is to make the RDX stand out no matter where you are. Now you just have to get used to all the attention.

Interior Highlights

Premium details abound through the cabin. It’s spacious, sophisticated and uses authentic, high-grade materials throughout, including Brushed Aluminum and available Natural Olive Ash Burl Wood. The seats are covered in available soft, full-grain Milano leather and can help keep you cool and warm. The RDX has thought of everything.

Panoramic Moonroof

Let the sun, or breeze, in. There is nothing like a Panoramic Moonroof that tilts and slides up front to shine with a little natural light on your drive. And don’t worry, it’s big enough so your passengers will enjoy it too. And it’s standard on all RDX models.


Nothing wrong with standing out a little. The 2021 RDX will feature an all-new A-Spec trim with exclusive front and rear fascias, 20-in Shark Gray Split 5-Spoke wheels and A-Spec exclusive badging. Every feature was designed to catch your eye and leave a lasting impression.

Connections At Your Command

Technology that adds to the driving experience without interfering with it. This is user-friendly tech that you can really connect with.

Smart Tech

Wherever you touch it responds. Introducing Acuras all-new, True Touchpad Interface™, which uses absolute positioning. In other words, when you tap on the left corner of the touchpad, the touchpad corresponds with the action precisely on the top left of the center display. It’s personal, intuitive and user-friendly.

Surround Sound

Your car could become one of your favorite places to listen to music. Whether you want to rock on, or sing along, the Acura/ELS Studio 3D®32 Premium Audio System in the RDX, engineered by Grammy Award–winning recording producer Elliot Scheiner, unleashes the full sound spectrum of all your favorite songs. This is true music appreciation.

Apple CarPlay

Apple CarPlay™ Integration51 is a smarter, way to use your iPhone® in your RDX. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows you to enjoy the drive. Just connect your iPhone and go.


An Exhilarating Drive

No matter the situation, the all-new RDX makes every drive a fun one.

Sharper Handling

Get ready to conquer every corner. The 2021 RDX is available with Super-Handling All Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) which takes handling to a whole new level. It helps you stay stable and balanced in the corners and maintain better grip while offering a precise ride. Now when life throws you a curve, you can handle it.

Responsive Ride

Comfortable doesn’t have to mean dull. Whether you want to take a spirited drive or just have a relaxing commute, the all-new RDX platform will fulfill all your needs. Featuring a dramatically stiffened body and sophisticated new chassis that helps RDX keep the ride smooth, no matter what mood you’re in.

Fun to Drive

The available Adaptive Damper System allows the RDX to remain soft and comfortable during highway cruising, yet firm when the road requires high-performance handling. In other words, fun when you want it and comfort when you need it. It can adjust suspension responsiveness in a split second, so if the conditions change the RDX changes right with it.

Made to Maneuver

Life is full of twists and turns, so the ability to change a vehicle’s steering ratio can have a few advantages. The Dual Pinion, Variable Ratio Electric Power Steering on the all-new 2021 RDX allows you to get a lighter, deft feel at slow speeds, but also a sense of stability at higher speeds. Now you might want to take the long way home, or at least the curvy one.

Smooth and Responsive

Go from the everyday to the full sport experience – all at the turn of a dial. The Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), standard on the RDX, delivers four dynamic drive modes to match the mood you’re in – Comfort, Snow, Sport and Sport+.

Comfort Mode

When you want to relax or you’re in the mood for a little pampering select Comfort mode. You’ll get an improved ride that makes it easier to cruise around the city or on the highway. This is the perfect balance between comfort and performance and you just might find that your drive home is one of the most peaceful parts of your day.

Snow Mode

When Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate and the winter season arrives Snow mode on the RDX is designed to give you added confidence on roads that might be bit challenging. By controlling the amount of power that goes to each wheel, Snow mode helps maintain control. Now the term snow day has a whole new meaning.

Sport Mode

Now it gets fun. When you want to turn up the excitement, Sport mode adds more excitement with a heightened throttle response and a more pronounced engine note. Don’t let the good looks of the RDX fool you, under the hood is plenty of power. Just because the route home is routine doesn’t mean the driving experience has to be.

Sport+ Mode

Get ready for your heart to race and your pulse to quicken. Sport+ adds much more aggressive shifts, increased steering response, and puts your paddle shifters in full manual mode. This is the ideal setting for performance and perfect for those times when you want to escape.


AcuraWatch in Every RDX

The goal is simple, help protect everyone. AcuraWatch is a suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies that helps us realize that vision. That’s why every RDX has AcuraWatch standard.

We can’t predict, but we can make a plan. AcuraWatch offers a list of safety and driver assistance systems that come standard in every 2021 Acura RDX. You’ll drive with confidence with technology like Collision Mitigation Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System and Road Departure Mitigation. Additional available innovations offer even more driver awareness.

Forward Collision Warning System

A helpful heads up. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System warns you if the system determines there is likelihood of a frontal collision when a vehicle is detected in front of you. If you do not brake in time or take preventive action, a visual warning flashes on the Multi-Information Display, and an audible beep sounds continuously.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow maintains a set speed and following interval from a detected vehicle ahead on the highway, even working in traffic to stop the vehicle entirely.

Lane Keeping Assist System

The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) is designed to help the driver to keep the RDX centered in a detected highway lane by applying mild, progressive steering inputs.

Multi-View Rear Camera

The Multi-View Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines produces a display whenever “Reverse” is engaged. Three separate views allow the driver to select one to best serve the situation. And when backing out of parking spots, a wide angle helps reveal what’s behind the RDX– perfect to look for approaching vehicles or pedestrians.

Available Assist

The available Blind Spot Information (BSI) system continuously monitors behind and to the sides of the RDX for other vehicles, helping to alert the driver if a vehicle is detected.
