On January 15th, the all-new 2019 Acura RDX prototype was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show. It’s perhaps the most significant car show in North America annually, and the RDX drew a lot of attention. That’s because it’s set to be one of the best new vehicles coming out this year across the industry.
The 2019 Acura RDX prototype is different than any other car or SUV in the premium carmaker’s stable. Here are five things you should know about the all-new 2019 RDX, set to arrive at Jay Wolfe Acura later this year.
The 2019 Acura RDX Prototype
Ravishing New Design
The exterior is completely restyled on the all-new 2019 Acura RDX. It has a low, wide stance for a compact SUV. The sculpted, sexy exterior is a showstopper and the signature Diamond Pentagon Grille is the highlight, front and center. Look for bold LED lighting all around.
It’s the first time the RDX – or any Acura, for that matter – will use a new turbocharged 2.0-liter VTEC engine with direct injection. Paired with a segment-first 10-speed automatic transmission, the 2019 Acura RDX’s new engine will improve efficiency while offering spirited performance.
It’s not just for the prototype – it’s destined for production. The 2019 RDX prototype shows off its new True Touchpad control and does away with a mechanical gearshift lever. Along with a daring new 10.2-inch infotainment screen and available ELS Studio 3D Audio, the RDX is going to be one of the most influential compact SUVs around.
Massive Panoramic Roof
When you want natural light, you’ll get it in the 2019 Acura RDX. The prototype displays an available panoramic roof for the front and rear rows. The front panel opens wide for fresh air when you want it.
Integrated Dynamics System
Expect more precise control in the RDX with an NSX-inspired Integrated Dynamics System. The driver can choose the setting that best fits their surroundings: Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Snow. The Acura RDX prototype gives a glimpse into what Acura engineers are focused on – safety and performance.
It’s coming later this year. Stay in touch with Jay Wolfe Acura to find out when the all-new 2019 Acura RDX will arrive.
