The Acura RDX is the company’s first compact crossover SUV. Yes, we know that Acura is doing MDX but after this segment, the only heir is RDX, and thankfully being prepared for 2019 MY. Currently, in the face of the second gene run and is expected 2019, MY will represent the 2019 Acura RDX that will have major changes that will be revolutionary, for lack of a better word.
RDX Exterior 2019
The most obvious change on the RDX exterior is its new pentagonal grid. Acura sought to create an athletic feel with a short front overhang and an attitude that is 2.5 inches longer and 1.2 inches wider than the previous generation. Like other Acura, the vehicle benefits from Eye Jewel LED lights to brighten the road.
The wheelbase is 2.5 inches longer than its predecessor. Acura says that this translates to larger cabs with “first class cabin space, rear legroom, and rear cargo space.” In our current RDX tests, we found that the front seats were soft The 16-way adjustable front seats are heated and cooled, and a panoramic sunroof, which can be tilted for ventilation or fully open, is standard.
One of the first things you’ll notice about the 2019 Acura RDX cab is the 10.2-inch touchscreen mounted on the top of the center console. Users can access the infotainment system using the touch screen, Acura True Touchpad Interface on the console between the driver and passenger seat, or two scroll wheel on the steering wheel. Acura says its touchpad does not work like a mouse; instead, it is a question of “map exactly one by one with the appropriate action in the middle screen”. Looks like Acura says its system is easier to use than the Lexus model, which can be difficult to use.
Third Generation 2019 The Acura RDX also marks the return of all-wheel-drive Super Handling to a compact SUV with the first appearance of the A-Spec trim level offering aggressive performance improvement. The RDX is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
New RDX should be here in a few months; This SUV is expected to go on sale this summer as a 2019 model.
