The 2019 Acura RDX fully embodies our new design, with turbocharged performance and an onslaught of premium features available. Dynamic torque vectoring sharpens handling and delivers exhilarating confidence in virtually all weather and road conditions.
RDX is powered by a direct-injected VTEC® Turbo 2.0-liter inline-4 engine, producing 272 horsepower, making it the quickest and best handling RDX yet. The new engine connects to a segment-first 10-speed automatic transmission with refined shifts controlled by a compact Electronic Gear Selector and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
SH-AWD Precision Handling
The available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ system enhances high-performance handling. The chassis sports an all-new suspension and available Active Damper System. All RDX models feature the NSX-inspired Integrated Dynamics System offering four exhilarating drive modes including: Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Snow.
The new RDX features a sophisticated, driver-centric cabin with authentic, high-grade materials and new technologies like the True Touchpad Interface. The touchpad uses one-to-one mapping with the 10.2-inch full-HD display. It’s the industry’s most intuitive audio and information control system.
Evocative New Design
Designers adapted the low, wide presence of the Precision Concept to a five-seat SUV. It’s the first model designed around our bold Diamond Pentagon Grille. The new RDX A-Spec is also the first-ever Acura SUV with distinctive sport appearance upgrades, including gloss black accents and Shark Gray 20-inch alloy wheels.
Spacious Driver-First Cabin
A tech-savvy cabin provides class-leading space and newly designed sport seats with up to 16-way power adjustment. Standard Apple Carplay and Android Auto integration amplify audio through an available 16-speaker ELS Studio® 3D system. All models come with an ultra-wide panoramic power-adjustable moonroof and floating center console.
A Turbocharged Debut
“This RDX is our most extensive redesign in more than a decade, a truly ground up reimagining of the RDX around our Precision Crafted Performance brand direction.”
