Review: 2019 Acura RDX

New from the ground up, the 2019 Acura RDX highlights a bold design and offers an even more thrilling drive. This luxury-compact-crossover SUV is packed with power and essential elements. Friendly Acura of Middletown, NY has the new RDX ready for you to test drive.


The 2019 Acura RDX is available in both front- and super handling all-wheel drive utilizing a 2.0-liter VTEC turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission with sequential sportshift paddle shifters. This all-new direct-injected engine generates 272-hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. Standard on the new RDX are four driving modes. The default Sport mode gives a heightened throttle response, while Sport + puts your paddle shifters in full manual mode for more aggressive shifts. Snow Mode helps maintain control on challenging roads, and Comfort mode delivers the perfect balance between comfort and performance.
