2019 Acura RDX Prototype: A Thinly Veiled Peek at the Production Model

Acura recently unveiled its latest crossover package. The hope is this model is a punched up a bit, since the model has stayed fairly bland, even it seemed to be going the way of other fun, sporty, hatchback crossover SUVs. They are hoping that the V4 will perform as well or better than competitors in its class and exceed them with the V6 offering.

Key Takeaways:

  • That the new RDX will be more exciting for buyers. That there are hopes that the engine isn’t slow “peaky” as the ones before.
  • The touchscreen controls are better than the lexus. That they are easier to use. That the temperature dials are big and easy to use also.
  • That Acura used to be rough like a college student but has grown from family to mid life crisis where it’s time for comfort and fun.

“Acura could go zanier still and install the 306-hp version of Honda‚Äôs turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that powers the Civic Type R at some point in the future.”
