How do they compare in performance?

Performance is one area where the 2022 Acura NSX and 2022 Acura RDX differ greatly. One is a 600-hp no-compromise supercar, while the other is a highly versatile SUV. However, both provide exceptional on-road confidence, thanks to distinct versions of Acura's advanced all-wheel drive (AWD).

While the 2022 NSX generates incredible power and delivers world-class handling capabilities, the 2022 RDX is skillful in various terrain. But thanks to Acura SH-AWD, both models can easily take on the elements, providing exceptional grip even when the road turns slick.

For all-out performance, there's no equal substitute for the blistering speed and corner-carving handling of Acura's 2022 NSX. However, the 2022 Acura RDX still provides plenty of power and performance in a more practical vehicle for everyday driving.

Performance with no compromises or a practical performer, which will you choose?

What’s the Difference in Size?

The 2022 Acura NSX and 2022 Acura RDX compete in very different vehicle segments, so it's no surprise that they differ greatly in size too. The NSX is low, wide and lean, while the RDX sits higher and boasts a roomy cabin.

Inside, you'll find two race-inspired and heavily bolstered bucket seats in the NSX. Its smaller cockpit is designed around the driver for the ultimate motoring experience.

The RDX's interior is airy and flexible, with seating for up to five occupants and flip-down rear seating for when you need to carry more cargo than passengers.

Both Acura models are agile, light on their feet, and easy to maneuver around traffic and obstacles you might encounter while driving near Lincoln, NE, and beyond.

What’s the Difference in Safety?

The performance capabilities of the 2022 Acura NSX also act as some of its most advanced safety features. For instance, the NSX's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) delivers instant responsiveness that extends beyond acceleration to steering and braking. This advanced AWD system adds safety and confidence to any drive.

The 2022 Acura RDX's SH-AWD system works similarly to provide extra grip, on road and off. Plus, the RDX boasts AcuraWatch, a suite of advanced driver-assistance systems that includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

Every new Acura automobile is designed and engineered to provide a safe and secure driving experience. So whether you opt for Acura's latest supercar or its premium compact SUV, you'll enjoy the safety and peace of mind you deserve.
