Acura’s popular compact luxury SUV has been going strong since 2006. But for 2019, the redesigned RDX is all-new with the Japanese automaker’s most extensive product overhaul in 10 years.

Exterior design aside, expect the new RDX to sport a powerful new turbo engine, available next-generation SH-AWD, a significantly updated interior, and improving handling Acura claims will make this the best on-road version to date.

2019 Acura RDX Redesign

New Exterior

Concept cars typically usually unrealistic products designers like to throw out there. But the in this case, the new 2.0L turbo-powered RDX actually draws inspiration from Acura Precision Concept and Acura Precision Cockpit – serving as the first all-new model to fully express Acura’s new exterior and interior design direction from these prototypes.

A bolder overall look for 2019, the updated SUV will find a longer wheelbase, shortened front overhang and wider track paired to new LED headlights, Acura’s signature diamond pentagon grille, and front air curtains inspired by the new NSX.

New Interior

The cabin gets bigger now via the 2.6-inch longer wheelbase, offering a fully-flat rear floor, and a larger (+3.4 cubic feet) cargo area with an additional 1.7 cubic-feet of compartmented underfloor storage.

Brushed aluminum, stainless steel and Olive Ash wood accents are available to ramp things up, along with sport seats, an ultra-wide panoramic moonroof and a high-deck floating centre console for improved functionality.
