What's New for 2019?

The 2019 Acura RDX is the most extensive redesign of any Acura model in nearly a decade, ushering in a new era for Acura design, performance, and overall prestige. What this means for Pembroke Pines, FL drivers is a compact crossover SUV that boasts new Acura-exclusive body and chassis architecture that's low and long, offering a wider stance for a smoother and even more exciting driving experience than ever before, an all-new engine, and much more. The 2019 RDX is full of incredible surprises.


Interior and Exterior Style

Offering the latest in Acura look and feel, the outside of the 2019 Acura RDX is all about dynamic angles and sleek lines to capture your attention at every curve of its form. You'll find the new Diamond Pentagon Grille up front that announces the RDX with grandiose flair, a sloping roofline that gives it the impression of motion even at a standstill, and standard 19-inch wheels that provide a bold presence that will impress everywhere from the grocery store to night clubs.

Open the doors and find a cabin boasting class-leading rear legroom and cargo space so you'll always have room for the people and items you bring along the way; with available materials throughout the cabin like brushed aluminum, stainless steel, open pore Olive Ash wood trim, Ultrasuede, and Milano leather, you'll be in the lap of luxury no matter which seat you choose. The 16-way power adjustable heated and cooled front seats provide unparalleled comforts in all Plantation, FL temperatures and driving conditions, and there's even an ultra-wide panoramic moonroof to let in the sun and the breeze on those warmer summer days.

Convenience and Safety Technologies

The 2019 RDX cuts no corners when it comes to your convenience; to that point, up front, you'll find a standard 10.2-inch full-HD touchscreen display that, when combined with the Acura True Touchpad Interface in the center console, provides a user-friendly and informative experience unlike any other. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard for your smartphone-related convenience, and you can even add on an available ELS Studios 3D sound system with 16 speakers for crystal-clear audio everywhere you go.

Safety is exceptional satisfying in the RDX as well. All 2019 RDX models come with the full suite of AcuraWatch safety and driver assistance technologies. With the Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, and Lane Keeping Assist, you'll have eyes in all directions to keep you out of harm's way as you head to your Coral Springs, FL destination.


Power and Performance

The 2019 RDX has an all-new engine roaring under its hood that will easily put you ahead of the pack: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder VTEX engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Capable of producing 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, this RDX is easily the fastest yet. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters help keep you engaged on long drives through winding roads and, with the assistance of the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, you'll never find a road condition you can't conquer. Add on the all-new suspension, available Active Drive Damper System, and the Integrated Dynamics System with four drive modes - Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Snow - and you'll never slow down for anything the Davie, FL roads throw your way.

The 2019 Acura RDX vs. the 2018 Lexus NX 300

Not all details of the 2019 Acura RDX are available at this moment but, using the best of the available information, we've compared it to a main rival: the 2018 Lexus NX 300. Take a look below and see how these two luxury SUVs fair when pitted head to head.

  • The base engine in the 2019 RDX produces an impressive 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque; the 2018 Lexus NX's base engine can only make 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, putting it squarely in second place.
  • The standard 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters provides a much more engaging and satisfying driving experience than the NX's standard 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission.
  • The RDX comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; the NX doesn't offer this compatibility on any trim level.
  • While subjective, we have no quibbles about the 2019 RDX's design being more appealing than the NX's design; the RDX offers much more subtlety in its styling, while the NX's enormous front grille, various jagged lines on its exterior styling elements, and exaggerated roofline slope make it appear less like a real vehicle and more like an over-eager design concept.
