The Honda variable flow turbocharger reduces the turbo lag by using a valve to constrict the exhaust duct in the lower speed, so the speed of the exhaust gas flow and keep the turbine rotate faster. At higher speeds, the valve opens to allow more exhaust gas flow to increase thrust. The engine also features a top-mounted inter-cooler, air network, passes through pipes under the hood. At 6000 rpm along the maximum torque of 260 ft·lbf (350 N · m) at 4500 rpm, the engine Acura RDX (CV 243.3 179.0 kW) rated at 240 hp.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated fuel savings is 19 miles per US gallon of the city and 23 mpg US (10 l / 100 km, 28 mpg-imp) highway miles per gallon. Riding style and terrain play an important role in fuel consumption of this vehicle. Increased, frequent lane changes uphill and sudden accelerations use turbo to increase the output torque to the SH-AWD system and therefore higher fuel consumption significantly. New EPA mileage estimates are 17 mpg in February 2007, USA in a city and 22 mpg US (11 L / 100 km, 26 mpg-imp) highway. The required premium unleaded fuel is 91 octane.

When a curve, a mating pair of magnetic flux in the rear differential to 100% of the available torque can reserve transferred to the outer wheel. The transmission of torque, combined with a return of 1.7% over tighten the rear wheel helps convert RDX by a curve.
Acura RDX Safety
The Acura RDX is the second vehicle, the body structure of the Acura Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE), which is designed to absorb the energy of a collision feature. The Acura RDX comes standard with 6 air-bags, including the dual front airbags, front side airbags, and two side curtain air-bags. The front air-bags use a dual threshold technique two steps each airbag deployment depending on the degree of impact and seat belt driver or passenger can adjust the time and speed. If the sensors keep the passenger too small, the front airbag is designed to implement. The passenger side airbag is of play if a child or small adult stature leaning where the airbag is deployed.
In the event of a sufficient side impact or rollover, the seatbacks deployed side curtain from above the door frames of the affected side, covering both rear occupants in the front and, and the stay was there one collision inflated.
