The 2016 Acura RDX will be entering its mid-cycle in 2016, and instead of giving the RDX the normal routine facelift, Acura decided to give the vehicle some significant upgrades, perhaps to celebrate its best-ever year last year when “it posted record sales in 2014 well ahead of European rivals in their segments”.

The upgrades are generous and substantial, going from exterior styling such Jewel Eye LED projector headlamps and LED taillights, to safety technologies and most importantly, the upgrades to performance that give the RDX more power and enhances the RDX driving experience.

The 2016 Acura RDX is about 6 horsepower more powerful thanks to its 3.5-liter V-6 engine being backed with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which together delivers 279 horsepower and 252 lb.-ft of torque.  More powerful, yet the 2016 RDX has better highway fuel-economy.  Gaining 1 mpg when traveling on the highway, the 2016 RDX FWD models now have fuel mileage ratings of 20 city/29 highway/23 combined mpg, 19/28/22 mpg for AWD models.

Driving experience for the 2016 RDX is improved by new active front and rear engine mounts, updates to the steering control system and increased suspension mount stiffness. Additionally, the RDX’s AWD system has been tuned for better rear torque bias to improve dynamic stability and all-weather performance.

The interior is not spared for a fresh look. The 2016 RDX’s interior is revitalized with a high-contrast silver and black trim coupled with substantial upgrades including standard heated front seats and new air-conditioning vents for second row.

See “Press Release” for more details.
