Acura is placing the last touches on its redesigned RDX ahead of the car’s introduction at this month’s 2018 New York International Auto Show.
The design is a key since Acura’s RDX prototype shown in January in the 2018 North American International Auto Show is pretty much identical to the manufacturing version debuting at N.Y.. The primary examples will be in showrooms this summer, as 2019 versions.
Acura on Monday affirmed that the new RDX will initially arrive at standard and sporty A-Spec guises. A much more potent Form S is an opportunity, however Acura remains to make it official. The automaker announced in January the Type S designation has been making a comeback. Vehicles designated a Type S will feature turbocharged V-6 power.
The base RDX is confirmed to be arriving with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, 10-speed automatic, and also all-wheel drive. The 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec will probably run the identical engine, combined with a few performance mods. All Acura is ready to confirm for the RDX A-Spec are sporty visual touches inside and outside.
The most recent redesign of the RDX, the nameplate’s third iteration, is clarified by Acura as the most comprehensive of any automobile launched from the newest in the last ten years. For example, it’s the very first version to ride on a new Acura-exclusive stage, and thankfully it won’t be plagued by an inside that looks like it has been lifted straight from a Honda.
In the RDX prototype shown in January, the interior featured premium components such as nappa leather, open-pore Olive Ash wood, and brushed aluminum trim. There was likewise a 10.2-inch camera, a center console-mounted touchpad, a head-up display, heated and ventilated front seats with 16-way modification, along with a panoramic sunroof. Interior space was up considerably on the Deadly RDX.
The coming of the new RDX is significant for Acura as the crossover will also be the first model fully developed under the principles of Acura’s Precision Crafted Performance motto. Thus far we’ve just seen the fundamentals applied to upgrades of existing models.
But the new RDX won’t have an easy time as popular competitions like the BMW X3 and Volvo XC60 were equally redesigned for its 2018 model year. An astonishing redesigned Infiniti QX50 can be coming to 2019.
