The design elements of the 2019 Acura RDX reflect a low and wide stance. It features the brand’s signature Diamond Pentagon Grille, which is flanked by new Jewel Eye™ headlights. These headlights have seven LED elements, which is an increase from the five previously. Below that are wide air intakes which can distribute the air in an efficient manner around the front wheels and along the side of the body. The hood bulges are prominent and can be seen from inside the cabin. 

Inside, drivers can find a cabin offering ample space and a number of technology features. Next-generation Acura sport seats provide the comfort and support to drivers and passengers. The 2019 RDX also includes a panoramic moonroof as a standard feature on all trims, giving passengers a chance to enjoy an open-air feeling when desired. Brushed aluminum, stainless steel, and open-pore Olive Ash wood trim are among the available high-grade materials throughout the cabin.

The wheelbase of the 2019 Acura RDX is 2.6 inches longer, which can make for more space and an even more comfortable ride. An additional 3.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats can be used, as well as an additional 1.7 cubic feet of compartmented underfloor storage for a number of different items. The structure of the vehicle is made of 50 percent high-strength steel and uses a double-ring rear frame design and two-piece ultra-high-strength steel front door rings for a more rigid body. The chassis design offers variable ratio dual-pinion electric power steering, a sport-tuned Macpherson strut front suspension, and a new five-link independent rear suspension and available adaptive dampers. 

Under the hood of the 2019 RDX is a direct-injected, turbocharged 2.0-liter, 16-valve engine that can produce up to 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.

The new RDX A-Spec, which is the first-ever Acura SUV with this kind of treatment, gives the vehicle a sporty appearance. The Shark Gray 20-inch alloy wheels and a lower front fascia and gloss-black accents give the vehicle a more athletic stance. LED fog lights and A-Spec badging help complete the look.
