The Acura RDX is all set to get a makeover. Technically the Acura RDX was Acura’s paramount authentic compact SUV/crossover. The very first RDX came in the year 2007 and was succeeded by its second-generation model in 2013. Now in the intimate future, Acura is all set up to release its third generation RDX. Acura has maintained a thick cloak on this car and it has been difficult to know much about it. It is definitely going to be a tuff competition for cars like BMW X3 and Audi Q5. The all-new Acura RDX is going to make its debut in 2019. Acura is all set up for a full fletched attack on the compact SUV segment.
2019 Acura RDX Exterior
Acura has taken great measures in order to conceal the look of the 2019 RDX model, not much can be figured out due to the veil. One can rest assured that it is going to be quite different from its predecessor. It is sure that it will have the depiction of Acura’s Jewel-Eye headlights, but these are going to be different then what we see in new ILX and the current MDX. They are going to look quite clean and sleek and have their own LED strips. It will get a new unique grille with a completely revolutionized look. There will be a divider on the grille. One can expect to see down below some bigger corner vents with long LED fog lights.
From the look of it, it is pretty clear that side profile of this car will be subjugated by some brawny wheel wells up front, while the rears will sit more flush with the body. The taillights will be placed a bit below. There is a lot of mystery revolving around the looks of this car, hopefully much more will be revealed in the near future.
2019 Acura RDX Interior
One can expect a renovated interior. It will definitely be build using CO2 dietary fiber and lightweight aluminum. Seeing the interior of the previous Acura you can be sure that they will step up their game as the previous version looked a lot cheaper from the inside than its competition. The lower end model will likely be getting a TFT screen between a couple of analog gauges while the higher end model will probably get all digital in this department. The competition is offering a lot when we talk about interiors, Acura has to make sure that they step up their efforts and give the people something which will amaze them and attract them to this car.
Along with a diamond pentagon grille, it will also get precision cockpit infotainment and much more.
2019 Acura RDX Engine
Things can get very much interesting in this department. As of now, RDX is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine. It delivers a moderate 279 horsepower and 6,200 rpm and 252 pound-feet of torque at 4,900 rpm. The Acura will certainly not downsize its powerful engine and in all probability go with a variation of the 2.0-liter. We might see a new hybrid engine in the nearby future. Most probably a 6-speed automatic transmission will be used. An all-wheel-drive variant might also be made available.
The engine will be fairly adequate in order to deliver sufficient power.
2019 Acura RDX Release date and pricing
2019 Acura RDX will be starting its production and will be introduced in the market approximately in the middle of 2019. The price of the current variant 2018 is priced at $35,800 for its entry-level model. It is very much possible that Acura will increase the price quite a lot if it feels the need to. A pricing of $39,000 for the starting model wouldn’t be out of the question. The price won’t be much if the car lives up to the expectations.
With all the latest technology and powerful looks, it will surely dominate the segment and give a tuff competition to brands like BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. The price seems to be competitive as well. A lot is still not known about this compact SUV, as more spy shots are made available one will be able to know more about it. The car does not look dominant and looks rather more like a family car. It is going to be the very first Acura to get a full redesign.
