2019 Acura RDX vs. 2018 Acura RDX

It’s just about time to compare 2019 Acura RDX vs. 2018 Acura RDX. The latest redesign has made a wide array of changes, with new features including:

  • 2.0L turbo direct-injected VTEC four-cylinder engine
  • Segment-first 10-speed automatic transmission
  • All-new platform
  • 10.2-inch HD Display with True Touchpad Interface

Let’s take a closer look at what separates the 2019 Acura RDX from the 2018 model.


Acura RDX Changes: Powertrain

The 2019 Acura RDX will adopt an all-new powertrain:

  • 2.0L Turbo Direct-Injected VTEC Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque.
  • Segment-First 10-Speed Automatic Transmission: Makes refines shifts and offers a compact Electronic Gear Selector and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Those Acura RDX changes should make it one of the fastest of its kind. Changing the powertrain from a 3.5L V6 with a 6-speed transmission to a four-cylinder with a 10-speed model should improve efficiency ratings as well.

2019 Acura RDX Redesign

Emboldened styling announces the new Acura RDX, and the changes are more than skin deep. The new platform is exclusive to the Acura brand, and it gives the RDX a wheelbase that’s 2.6 inches longer than before. As such, we should see a boost to the already generous dimensions of the 2018 Acura RDX:

  • Up to 76.8 Cubic Feet of Cargo Space
  • 103.5 Cubic Feet of Passenger Space

Technology Upgrades for 2019

The 2018 Acura RDX is noted for its exceptional technology, which includes:

  • The comfort of GPS-linked, solar-sensing climate control
  • The convenience of Acura Navigation System with AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic
  • The safety of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

The 2019 Acura RDX raises the stakes with:

  • 10.2-Inch HD Display with True Touchpad Interface
  • New 16-way adjustable sport seats
  • Standard automatic braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System.
