What's New for the 2019 Acura RDX?

Now in its third generation, the all new 2019 Acura RDX was completely redesigned from the bottom up for this model year. Despite a crowded luxury SUV market, the Acura RDX stands out from the crowd thanks to its long list of standard amenities, practicality, and stellar safety features. The Acura RDX features turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, all-wheel drive system, and a sporty exterior. Favorite features in the new RDX include the AcuraWatch Safety system, which includes features such as lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control, as well as the Walk Away Door Lock.

Power and Performance

Under the hood, the 2018 Acura RDX boasts a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that boasts 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with the new 10-speed automatic transmission that changes gears effortlessly. This powertrain combination provides an EPA estimated 22 city and 28 highway miles per gallon in front-wheel drive models, 22 city and 27 highway miles per gallon in FWD A-Spec models, 21 city and 27 highway miles per gallon in AWD models and a slightly lower 21 city and 26 highway miles per gallon in AWD A-Spec models. An idle start/stop system preserves fuel at stop lights, improving city MPG ratings. The Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system is optional in the 2018 RDX for an extra $2,000. The RDX also gets a respectable towing capacity of 1,500 lbs.
