Luxurious Interior Conveniences
Unlock the 2020 Acura RDX and start driving more easily with keyless entry and a pushbutton ignition. When you take a seat in the cockpit, you can expect a well-designed, upscale interior fitted with ambient cabin lighting. Stay comfortable with Sport seats and front-row 12-way power seats with lumbar support.
You’ll also have a 7-inch Multi-Information Display (MID) that’ll keep you updated with important driving metrics and navigation prompts. Quickly access your favorite music or podcast thanks to the RDX’s 10.2-inch HD Dual-Content Center Display, which is connected to a premium 9-speaker audio system.
This display can be navigated with Acura’s finely tuned True Touchpad Interface™. It’s calibrated one-to-one with the center display to offer a precise response.
A Robust Safety Suite
There couldn’t be a discussion about the 2020 RDX without mentioning its state-of-the-art safety features. Every model comes standard with the AcuraWatch suite, which includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), and an Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow.
The ACC with Low-Speed Follow will maintain a safe distance when you’re cruising down the left lane on your morning commute. In the event of an imminent collision, the CMBS™ with FCW will alert you to press the brake pedal and can automatically apply brake pressure—if necessary—to help prevent an accident.
Additionally, the RDX was built on Acura’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. This not only helps to distribute impact energy away from the passenger cabin during an accident but also mitigates the overall damage to both vehicles involved.
