The 18-inch wheels of the 2017 Acura RDX ensure that you will always be riding in style. The machined polished finish and artfully aggressive design create a sense of motion, even when the SUV is standing still. These wheels are hiding 12.3-inch ventilated disc brakes in the front and 12-inch discs in the back. With electronic brake distribution, the RDX will provide an individual braking profile for each wheel, ensuring the best stopping performance each time you apply the brake pedal.
The RDX driver’s seat comes standard with 10-way powered adjustability. This includes powered lumbar support adjustment to reduce strain on your back. The driver’s seat also features two memory settings. At the touch of a button, the RDX driver’s seat will return to your favorite position. You no longer have to worry about another driver fiddling with your seat. Your passenger can also find comfort with a 4-way power adjustable seat, which can be upgraded with the Technology Package.
Via a vast array of sensors, the RDX can monitor vehicle speed, throttle position, G-force, individual wheel speeds, steering angle, yaw rate and more to determine if the SUV is oversteering or understeering at any given moment. When a potentially dangerous situation is detected, the Vehicle Stability Assist system will reduce engine torque and gently apply brakes to each wheel individually as needed. With systems like this, the 2017 Acura RDX will help you get to any destination safely.
