2019 RDX Front Wheel Drive Geometry    (Score: 1, Normal) 06-21-2018 10:24

Does anyone know if the RDX will have the Civic Type R stearing axis with the pivot point closer to the center of the wheel which all but eliminates torque steer.

No, I don't think so. Here's the relevant suspension info from the press kit:


Front and Rear Suspension
The 2019 RDX suspension delivers both agile handling and a composed, supple ride. The system uses a combination of front MacPherson struts and a rear five-link design, both utilizing rigid subframes and front using hydraulic suspension bushings. The RDX, Technology Package and A- Spec use 2-stage Amplitude Reactive Dampers, while the Advance Packages Active Damper System is electronically integrated with the vehicles Integrated Dynamics System (IDS). Ground clearance is a useful 8.2 inches, allowing all RDX grades (including FWD and SH-AWD) to navigate through more varied conditions.

The RDXs strut-style front suspension improves crash performance. The new five-link rear suspension provides outstanding handling characteristics and ride quality, while also helping to maximize second-row seating and cargo space. On all RDX grades, 30 mm tubular front and 23 mm solid rear stabilizer bars improve turn-in response while reducing body roll during cornering. The stabilizer bars are bonded to their mounting bushings and use low-friction connecting links for smooth operation. The curb-to-curb turning diameter is 38.9 feet for all grades.

MacPherson Strut Front Suspension
The MacPherson strut front suspension is engineered to provide inspired handling performance and a responsive feel for the driver. Specially calibrated geometry ensures a high degree of quickness and precision, smoothness and stability. The lower suspension arms are connected to the subframe and to the body via hydraulic compliance bushings, providing the ideal combination of handling responsiveness and precision, along with maximum isolation from road noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).


Five-Link Rear Suspension
The 2019 RDXs new five-link rear suspension system offers both ride compliance and handling performance significantly above the previous generation, putting the RDX in the same league dynamically as top European competitors. This new multi-link system uses a steel subframe, forged aluminum upper control arms and toe link to minimize unsprung weight and optimize component stiffness, an aluminum hub carrier, and high-strength steel lower control arms that provide further weight savings. Improvements to the RDXs unibody stiffness particularly in the rear area help the new suspension system to excel at improving stability, ride compliance, and impact harshness. The system is designed to perform ideally in both the FWD and SH-AWD configurations.
