After years of an identity crisis, Acura takes a giant step forward to remind buyers who they are as a brand. Applying all kinds of new technology, luxury, and performance to the brand's best-selling RDX for 2019. Key improvements include an all-new infotainment system, next generation super handling AWD, and more luxury and technology inside the spacious cabin. Acura was able to do all this while preserving the best aspect of the RDX, the price. Starting at $37,300 and toping out around $48,000 fully loaded, the 3rd generation RDX easily undercuts top European rivals by as much as $10,000 dollars, all while still delivering the luxury and tech by its rivals with the added bonus of strong reliability and resale value that the Acura brand has always delivered.
The latest vehicle in the Acura lineup to receive the A-Spec styling treatment is its popular three-row MDX crossover SUV, which made its debut at the 2018 New York Auto Show. On the outside, the luxury family hauler gets more aggressive looks thanks to a new front fascia, beefier side sills, wider exhaust tips and a combination of black and dark chrome trim.
