As we wrote in our 2019 Acura RDX first drive review, this completely redesigned compact luxury crossover is intended to provide a greater emotional connection with owners than its predecessors. While still addressing key rational buying decisions -- value, reliability and safety -- it features a more striking design, a higher end interior and a more engaging driving experience. While this applies to every RDX, the new RDX A-Spec trim is meant to up the emotional content even further. In this video, we show you the many visual differences between the regular RDX trims and the A-Spec, as well as those changes made to the interior.

With continued growth in the US market, Subaru continues to enjoy strong sales and impressive new products. One particular area where the company has struggled is when owners outgrow their Outback and Forester. They tried their hand with the B9 Tribeca back in 2006, it was uniquely Subaru in every way, but didn't win over American shoppers who have a need for more space. For 2019, Subaru took everything they learned from the Tribeca and gave the Ascent exactly what Americans wanted: more room, power, luxury, and capability. The end result is quite an impressive new SUV that blends elements of the stalwart players from Honda and Toyota into a more appealing package, its a must drive if you are looking for a 3-row SUV right now.
Edmunds editors Mark Takahashi, Josh Sadlier and Will Kaufman do a back-to-back-to-back comparison of the two highest-rated small crossovers: the 2017 Honda CR-V and the 2018 Mazda CX-5. Also added into the mix is the best-selling 2018 Toyota RAV4, which is due to be replaced by an all-new model later this year. We put these versatile vehicles through their paces to see which one might be the best fit for you. Q: How much do these small crossovers cost? A: All three have starting prices right at the $25,000 mark. The as-tested prices for this comparison are $34,505 for the 2018 Mazda CX-5, $32,595 for the 2018 Toyota RAV4, and $30,195 for the 2017 Honda CR-V. Q: Why was the 2018 Toyota RAV4 included? A: The Toyota RAV4 is at a distinct disadvantage because it's due for a complete redesign, while the Mazda and the Honda have undergone more recent updates. We included the Toyota because it represents the best-selling model in the class, as well as the best-selling non-pickup truck in the U.S. Q: Which small crossover has the best cargo capacity? A: In order from largest to smallest: 2017 Honda CR-V, 2018 Toyota RAV4 and 2018 Mazda CX-5. Q: Is there a clear winner? A: The 2017 Honda CR-V wins on paper and gets high marks for convenience. The 2018 Mazda CX-5 is our favorite for the way it drives and looks. The 2018 Toyota RAV4 remains a strong choice, too, but we'd suggest waiting for the 2019 model. Q: Where's Carlos? A: There is no Carlos, only Zuul.

As promised, the automaker is also rolling out a dolled-up A-Spec version of the RDX. Mirroring changes in the recently revealed MDX A-Spec, the top-shelf RDX gets black exterior trim, 20-inch smoked wheels, a more aggressive chin, bigger exhaust tips, and darker headlights. On the inside, the A-Spec is fitted with sport seats with Ultrasuede and special stitching, real aluminum trim pieces, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, and a red-themed gauge cluster.
2019 Acura RDX Advance Review https://goo.gl/rWXTeu
Now comes an all-new model, with the 2019 RDX marking the third generation of Acura’s premium crossover. Arriving on dealer lots this week, the RDX has fresh technology, enhanced safety features, striking design inside and out, and a few surprises. What hasn’t changed is the RDX’s impressive value for the dollar. We’ll get to that, but first let’s detail what else is new and compelling in the latest RDX.
The all-new RDX is similar to the very first in terms of its power train. That’s because the 2019 RDX has swapped its former 3.5-liter V6 for a new, 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder. This is similar to what almost every other rival has also done, and harkens back to the original RDX with its turbo-4. Moving from a V6 to a 4-cylinder enables better efficiency while not sacrificing power thanks to advancements that have made the smaller engines just as or more powerful than a traditional V6.
In the RDX, the new 4-cylinder engine makes nearly the same horsepower as the old V6–272 vs. the outgoing model’s 279–and a lot more torque. The new engine has a stout 280 lb-ft of torque, vs. the 252 in the outgoing model. The fuel efficiency improvement isn’t as drastic, but it’s an improvement nonetheless, increasing 1 mpg combined for both front- and all-wheel drive models.
And that brings us to the Acura’s all-wheel drive system. This latest RDX again boasts Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), which replaces the previous model’s simpler AWD system. SH-AWD differentiates itself with torque vectoring. Now in its fourth generation, Acura’s SH-AWD can send up to 70 percent of power to the rear wheels, and of that power, up to 100 percent can go to either rear wheel. This enables superior traction in wet or slippery environments, plus more of a sports-car feel.
Also new is the transmission. The first-gen RDX used a 5-speed automatic. Just over a decade later, that number has doubled, with the 2019 RDX among the latest new car to use a 10-speed automatic.
A host of other improvements are also part of the package, from Acura’s Integrated Dynamics System that allows you to adjust drive modes on the fly to sound-deadening materials and a host of active safety and driving equipment. Acura invited us to Whistler in British Columbia to get a first impression of the all-new RDX. Following are our first impressions.
