The Acura RDX is Honda’s luxury brands leaders in sales volume. Now, the 2019 Acura RDX has taken it up a notch with its more dynamic style, very efficient 10-speed gearbox, more engaging ride and a new A-Spec version. Plus, this third generation of the Aura RDX has more personality as well. The vehicle hasn’t simply evolved, it underwent a drastic makeover that’s made it lighter, more rigid, added a new platform, developed a lower center of gravity and improved its handling. There’s even the first-ever RDX A-Spec SUV. Plus, the 2019 RDX has Acura’s new signature look. The first vehicle from the Japanese automaker with it.
The SUVs tail end is fairly generic, but up front the 2019 RDX has Acura’s new ‘Diamond Pentagon’ grille that adds character and showcases the oversized Acura logo in the middle. Acura will use a similar configuration on its other new products. For buyers looking for truly unique style, the A-Spec version of the RDX has several visual elements which enhance the vehicle’s look, like monochromatic elegance as well as low-profile tires on 20-inch grey rims. For additional power, opt for the as-yet-unconfirmed Type-S featuring a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that rivals the BMW M and Mercedes-AMG.

The 2019 Acura RDX has a starting price of $43,990 and comes in five different versions distinguished primarily by the levels of equipment they offer. All versions of the new RDX have the same engine and gearbox. The impressive turbocharged four-cylinder, 2.0-liter, 272 horsepower engine with direct injection delivers 280 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated with a brand new ten-speed automatic gearbox that’s ultra-efficient and together they help the vehicle get much improved gas mileage.

The interior of the 2019 Acura RDX has been completely redesigned. There are buttons to the steering wheel’s left and on the thoroughly modern-looking floating center console. The commands are logically arranged and for the layout of the selector buttons for forward, reverse and park, Acura employed the NSX integration. There’s also a touchpad-controlled high-sitting screen for its infotainment system. The new platform increased the length and wheelbase of the RDX and creates a noticeably roomier interior for passengers in the front and rear and more cargo volume. Its 16-way adjustable seats provide superior comfort and support.

Step on the gas and the powerful, spunky, surprisingly efficient turbocharged four-cylinder instantly springs into action with help from the ten-speed automatic gearbox that always maintains the perfect gear range. Pressing the Sport button modifies the vehicle’s handling, lets the engine rev a little higher and ignore the higher gears. Everything can be combined to four driving modes which adjust the accelerator’s responsiveness and the firmness of the suspension. The 2019 RDX’s most radical mode is Sport + with the acceleration amplified by the sound system in the cabin.
