The 2019 Acura RDX has made its debut ahead of its release later this year. All new and redesigned, the 2019 model builds upon the successes of the 2018 RDX and includes additions, edits, and upgrades. It’s the most thorough overhaul Acura has undertaken in over a decade and is poised to take Acura into a new direction for the future.

  • Sharper performance
  • Spacious cabin with more technology features
  • Sporty and sophisticated exterior details


The 2019 RDX is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L, 16-valve powerplant with DOHC VTECH. It will produce up to 272 horsepower on the road and 280 lb-ft of torque, which is more powerful than last year’s model. The engine works in tandem with a 10-speed automatic transmission that offers seamless transitions through the gears and thrilling acceleration. The RDX also returns with Super Handling ALL-Wheel Drive, which improves performance and sharpens handling, even in Chicago’s inclement weather conditions.

Inside the Cabin

The 2019 model is more spacious than last year for your passengers and cargo. The sport seats are redesigned to offer more premium comfort and a luxurious feel that supports your body, even on long journeys. The RDX also features a panoramic moonroof as a standard feature on all models. An available voice recognition system is more sophisticated and allows you to access controls and settings without taking your hands off the wheel. A head-up display, intuitive touchscreen interface, and an upgraded audio system are all new in the 2019 RDX.

Exterior Design

The 2019 RDX is sportier and more elegant than ever. Redesigned with a new chassis and body architecture, the RDX is lower, wider, and more compelling on the road. Jewel Eye headlights, LED fog lights, and Acura’s signature Diamond Pentagon Grille make up the front.  And an available A-Spec model will add more performance-enhancing features that make the RDX look and feel more athletic, with shark gray 20-inch alloy wheels, and more.
