2019 Acura RDX Redesign, Changes, Release Date
The 2019 Acura RDX will be one of the most comfortable options in its class with variety of deluxe attributes. Every detail of this car will be engineered and tested to put you confidently in charge. We expect a lot of premium and hi-tech features to complement your active lifestyle. Its key competitors will be Audi Q5, BMW X3, Land Rover Evoque, and Mercedes-Benz GLC.
2019 Acura RDX – Stylish Exterior and Interior Design
In terms of appearance, we expect the car to borrow from the RDX or ILX models. On top of that, it will have a new set of Jewel Eye headlights and a less intrusive 3-D grille. On the rear part, there will be new taillights, dual exhaust outlets and a more aggressive bumper.
There are rumors that the Acura RDX 2019 will feature a more spacious cabin. As a matter of fact, the 10-way power seats will keep the driver and the passengers supported during long trips. The rear seats will comfortably handle three adult passengers with plenty of head and leg room.
This SUV will also have plenty of space under the front seats as well as a set of adjustable heating and cooling vents. Next to the driver, we expect a covered compartment for phone and USB charging. The impeccable interior details will elevate this luxury SUV.
The 2019 Acura RDX will be well-equipped in terms of cargo space. Behind the rear seats, there will be 26.2 cubic-feet. However, when the seats are folded, the RDX will offer 76.8 cubic-feet of cargo space. Other than that, the car will be equipped with a digital camera and the latest infotainment system.
2019 Acura RDX – Engine and Performance
The 2019 RDX will be powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 279 hp and 252-pound feet of torque. The engine will be mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission that responds to your inputs with smooth shifts. During steady highway cruising, the variable cylinder management system will automatically change the V6 engine to run from the usual six to three cylinders. This makes it a fuel efficient car.
According to the engineering team, the front wheel drive will be offered as standard while the all wheel drive will be optional. Although the details surrounding the engine are still unknown, we certainly expect more horse power than the outgoing model. Just like the predecessor, we expect the sporty and assertive engineering of the SUV to raise the bar of a thrilling performance. The driver will optimize the responsiveness of the car through the sport mode feature.
As for the EPA rating, we expect 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway for the FWD. On the other hand, the AWD will have an EPA rating of 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. In wet conditions, the driver will use the vehicle stability assist feature to apply brakes at each wheel to reduce the engine power. This 2019 Acura RDX will be designed to help you power through whatever comes your way.
2019 Acura RDX – Price and Release Date
The 2019 Acura RDX is expected to cost higher than the current model which starts at around $35,800. With this in mind, the official release date will be sometimes in 2019.
