The Capacious 2017 Acura RDX Capacity


Those shopping in the small luxury crossover SUV segment don’t necessarily want to skimp on space. In fact, they likely want just the opposite—a compact vehicle that improves drivability, yet can accommodate their every passenger and cargo need. The 2017 Acura RDX fits the bill by providing ultimate utility, particularly in regard to its capacious capacity. You’ll be able to fit any arrangement of passengers and cargo within this model’s cavernous cabin. Keep reading to find out what you can fit inside the latest RDX and how it will be able to manage your next trip to Knoxville or Nashville.

Passenger Space

The 2017 Acura RDX comfortably seats five people, and there’s more than enough space to move and stretch out. Front passengers will enjoy up to 38.7 inches of headroom, 42.0 inches of legroom, 55.7 inches of hip room, and 58.7 inches of shoulder room. Meanwhile, those sitting in back can expect up to 38.1 inches of headroom, 38.3 inches of legroom, 53.8 inches of hip room, and 57.2 inches of shoulder room. Overall, total passenger volume measures at 103.5 cubic feet. It’s clear, then, that the 2017 Acura RDX’s capacity is set to keep all passengers comfortable, and it’s unlikely that you’ll be hearing any complaints about being too cramped.

Cargo Space

Within the 2017 Acura RDX, the cabin is completely customizable, meaning it will be able to accommodate any load or combination of passengers and gear that you need it to. A 60/40-split folding rear seat bench easily folds down to open up more cargo space, or can be folded partially down if you still need room for both people and cargo. Behind the second row, there is a standard 26.1 cubic feet of space, which is plenty big enough for your personal luggage or the weekly shopping goods. With that row unoccupied, though, you’ll have access to a whopping maximum of 61.3 cubic feet, which should be more than enough room for all of your gear for a weekend trip or long vacation. Plus, it’s one of the largest cargo volumes in the compact luxury crossover SUV segment.

What’s more, there are plenty of nooks and crannies in the Acura RDX cabin to hold smaller items, including front-door storage compartments and a center console front armrest with an upper phone tray to hold your cell phone.
