First Look at the 2019 Acura RDX Prototype

2018 Acura RDX Prototype

Now Acura might be saying that the third-generation RDX crossover that recently debuted at the North American International Auto Show is just an Acura prototype, but that isn’t necessarily true. The recently unveiled Acura RDX Prototype is production-ready and is set to go on sale during the summer of 2018 [1].

Acura RDX Prototype Preview

The new RDX might be the same height as the previous model RDX, but it is longer and wider. The wheelbase is 2.5 inches longer and 1.2 inches wider with a shorter overhang and a longer wheel to dash. The body and chassis are stiffer than previous models with a multilink rear suspension system and an adaptive damper system. Underneath the hood of the Acura RDX prototype, is a 2.0-liter VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This is the same engine found in the Honda Accord and Civic Type R. This four-cylinder engine is paired with the same 10-speed automatic transmission found in both the Accord and Odyssey. The difference with the one in the Acura RDX is it offers all-wheel-drive.

Interior Design of the New 2019 RDX

Inside the 2019 RDX consumers will find heated and cooled sports style seats that are 16-way adjustable. A 16-speaker sound system offers four speakers inside the roof of the RDX for better clarity and sound. The infotainment system offers a 10.2-inch screen with a touchpad interface that will also be used in all future Acura models. Natural language speech recognition, updates over-the-air and through 4G LTE Wi-Fi for the infotainment system and telematics, a sports steering wheel, and an ultra-wide panoramic roof all come standard with the 2019 Acura RDX.
