The 2019 Acura RDX is all-new and marks the third generation of this compact luxury SUV. Its automotive environment has changed drastically in the decade since the first version was introduced. The RDX stands out with its amenities, practicality, and the reliability inherent in its Honda parent. Furthermore, this revamped RDX has come into its own with newfound style, athleticism, innovation, and stellar safety features. Unchanged is its value story. The 2019 Acura RDX is among the few vehicles that can make you feel self-indulgent yet fiscally responsible.
Driving The 2019 Acura RDX:
Whereas the prior RDX was a solid performer that tended to fly under the radar, this new Acura RDX isn’t shy about touting its fresh athleticism. At the heart of its new powertrain is a turbocharged 4-cylinder that replaces a naturally aspirated V6. Though smaller, the 4-cylinder puts out nearly the same horsepower (272 vs. 279) and significantly more torque (280 lb-ft vs 252). Also new is a 10-speed automatic transmission that works surprisingly well given its number of gears, which are higher for optimal fuel efficiency. We found the RDX’s ride taut yet supple, and efforts to quiet the cabin have paid off. Rather than just Drive and Sport modes, the new RDX has a 4-mode drive adjust system (Acura’s Integrated Dynamics System) that makes a real difference in driving behavior among its Snow, Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ settings.
The cabin has a luxurious and futuristic appeal. At first glance, you might think you’re in a spaceship. The prominent silver dial mounted in the center of the dash that’s used to toggle drive modes looks straight out of a sci-fi film, while the 10.2-inch high-res screen mounted on the top dash that Acura’s True Touchpad Interface controls is further proof the future is now. Even the transmission is innovative. Instead of a traditional gearshift, you hit a button: D for Drive, P for Park, R for Reverse, etc. The front seats are above average in their support, as is the rear passenger space. Cargo room is also among the tops in its class. With the rear seat up, there is 29.5 cubic feet, about twice that of a trunk sedan. Fold the rear seats, and that space expands to 58.9 cubic feet, plenty to hold packages or sports gear.
The RDX got an extreme makeover for its debut in an all-new form, going from handsome yet conservative to stylish and athletic. It’s a tight bundle of creases, angles, and crisscrossing design elements. Just look at the intersection of the D-pillar that makes the roof appear to float. Up front, swoopy headlight housings flank Acura’s diamond-pentagon grille, which is new to the RDX. All models feature a panoramic sunroof and power tailgate. Below the paint, but no less important, Acura used significant amounts of ultra-high-strength steel in the name of safety.
ACURAWATCH SAFETY SYSTEM – The new Acura RDX crossover SUV has the ability to prevent an accident and assist in everyday driving thanks to features like lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control. Collectively known as AcuraWatch, the suite also includes forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and road-departure mitigation.
WALK AWAY DOOR LOCK – “Did I lock the car?” It’s a niggling thought that can make the best of us slightly paranoid. With the new Acura RDX, you’ll never need to worry. The Walk Away, Door Lock feature, does exactly what its name implies, securing the car automatically as you walk away. The system can also be switched on or off as needed.
The 2019 Acura RDX is one of the more attractive vehicles in the small luxury SUV class, and it boasts one of the quietest, comfiest interiors, too. Acura’s 2019 RDX is a compelling, competent package, and arguably the best value in the compact luxury SUV segment.
Pick the RDX and your left brain can be satisfied in knowing that you drove off the lot in something that offers more power, luxury, tech, and space than the competition, and you get to keep a load of cash in your pocket, too. But if you’re right-brain dominant, the RDX may set you on a course of wondering what could have been with the pricier competition. Do yourself a favor and tell your right brain to shut it!
