A completely redesigned 2019 Acura RDX Should Get Buyers Excited


The 2019 Acura RDX has been finally revealed at the New York Auto Show. The car was previewed earlier at the Detroit Auto Show, but was advertised as the prototype of the new RDX. The reveal at the New York Auto Show is the finalized version of the Acura RDX, and it is something to be excited about.

Acura has stated that this is the most extensive makeover of a vehicle that they have done to date. The Acura RDX has literally been revamped panel by panel both inside and out, and the results are fabulous.

Super Handling All Wheel Drive

The all-wheel drive feature of the new RDX has been updated to include the super handling version made by Acura. In the previous release of the RDX, the all-wheel drive feature was replaced by a more economical version then the super handling version used in previous models. The result was devastating and many people were disappointed with the poor handling quality. Acura has now put the latest version of the super handling all-wheel drive back into the RDX. To see how well one handles, take one for a spin at  Chapman Acura. You are sure to fall in love with the Acura RDX.

New Engine Features

The new RDX is a 10 speed automatic. IT is the first passenger vehicle to offer this type of system in a car. The horsepower remains the same as the older engine, 272 horse, but the torque has been increased by 28 pounds. This gives the engine faster reaction time with the same horsepower.


Overall, the RDX is a smaller version of the crossover Acura MDX. However, the styling has been fine-tuned and is very sleek and sharp looking. The RDX will retain its Jewel headlights, but will now come with 7 LED lights installed instead of 5 for better lighting.

The RDX has a gloss black grill that gives it a sleek look and air vents have been added to the front that are similar to those found on other Acura vehicles. The RDX will also come with special 20 inch grey alloy wheels and larger exhaust tips for a sporty look.

The interior has also become very sporty. The seats are suede and have very fine stitching to make them look sporty. The interior is roomy and there is a large cargo space. Overall space has increased since the wheel base for this model is larger than previous models. Floorboard storage is also available.


The most impressive change for the Acura RDX is the inclusion of the True Touchpad Interface. The touchpad is a 10 inch screen that is designed for easy use so that the driver does not have to look away from the road to use. The touch panels are 1:1 meaning that wherever you touch it responds to that action. It is a very updated control panel that is sure to become a favorite among RDX drivers.

Overall, the new RDX is a stunning compliment to the RDX product line. The complete makeover both on the interior and exterior of the car makes this new model a very exciting choice when searching for a new vehicle. The price has not yet been announced for this new vehicle. Acura has stated, however, that it should go into production soon and be available towards the end of 2018.
