Acura RDX engine, transmission and performance

Every RDX is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and 272 hp that’s paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive (or “SH-AWD” in Acura-speak).

The RDX’s throttle responds at low speeds and pulls away from stoplights with enough power for most drivers. The transmission could be quicker to downshift, especially when the driver uses the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The turbocharged engine makes the RDX sound a bit like the NSX, with a high-pitched growl during hard acceleration, but much of that noise is manmade and carried into the cabin through the audio system’s speakers.
