The Acura RDX redesign has just been unveiled at the 2018 North American International Auto Show – let’s just say this intensely popular luxury SUV just came that much harder to ignore. 2019 Acura RDX Prototype’s features include:

  • Upgraded Styling with All-New Design Language
  • New 2.0L DOHC VTEC Turbo Direct-Injected Engine
  • Segment-First 10-Speed Automatic Transmission
  • True Touch Interface with 10.2-Inch Full-HD Display

What to Expect From the Design of the Next Acura RDX

The 2019 Acura RDX Prototype is the result of a complete redesign. This is the first model to embody Acura’s latest design language. The stance is more athletic, the track is wider, and the wheelbase is longer.

Lines flow seamlessly from Acura’s signature diamond pentagon grille, and the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype debuts the bold new front fascia. Features include all-LED exterior lighting and next-generation of Acura Jewel Eye™ LED headlights. Better yet, this will be the first Acura SUV available with the sporty features of the A-SPEC package.

Performance Details of the Acura RDX Redesign

Acura has yet to reveal official performance figures, but it’s hard to imagine zipping through Columbus or cruising from Westerville to Worthington without a an engaging ride. After all, Acura has announced:

  • New 2.0L DOHC VTEC® Turbo Direct-Injected Engine
  • Segment-First 10-Speed Automatic Transmission
  • NSX-Inspired Integrated Dynamics System with modes for Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Snow

The 2019 Acura RDX Prototype should deliver 40 percent more low-end torque, and it rides on a sophisticated new chassis that’s both stiffer and lighter than that of the outgoing model.
