The 2019 Acura RDX will be the successor of the current RDX model to compete with the Macan and F-Pace in the SUV market. The current Acura RDX can no longer compete with its competitor because of its rather old design.
The new CR-V has been released, so we will expect to see the new Acura RDX in the market because they share the same chassis. The Honda modular platform will be used in the next RDX model. Let’s see some detail of this new SUV in this article.
2019 Acura RDX Exterior Design
Some changes should be applied to the next Acura RDX to make it as a stylish SUV. It’s very important because the previous RDX model has an old design. The new CR-V comes with the longer and wider design than the predecessor. It seems that this design will also be applied to the next Acura RDX. Some rumors also said that there would be 2-inch extra of wheelbase and the car will get lower to the ground.
Then, some exterior parts of the next RDX should also be upgraded. At the front, the grille of the RDX will get a new design featuring a new air intake. The air intake will be larger than the previous RDX to give adequate air supply to the engine. The headlights and taillights will be more stylish than the predecessor. It comes with the new LED lights for both the headlights and taillights.
2019 Acura RDX Interior Design
The 2019 Acura RDX interior will get some upgrades. The first thing that should be upgraded is the dual-LCD screens for the infotainment system. Many people said that it is not easy to use. A single large touchscreen display will be a better choice. It can provide the navigation system and infotainment system at the same time.
The old Acura RDX still uses the analog instrument cluster on the dashboard. For the next model, we believe it will be removed and moved to the touchscreen display. The space inside Acura is quite large and comfortable. Hopefully, the seats of the next RDX will be covered by the high-quality leather materials.
2019 Acura RDX Engine Specs
The engine of the next RDX is more powerful than the current model. There are two possibilities of the engine that will be used. The first one is the V6 engine that quite powerful. The second one is the turbocharged engine with the great power and good fuel efficiency. The base model still uses the 2-liter inline two engine producing 300 horsepower and 300 pounds of torque.
