The 2019 Acura RDX is more than just the third generation model to the brand, it’s a new beginning. The architecture, design language, and attitude are all clean sheet here. Tom Voelk travels to Whistler, British Columbia, Canada to drive the top trim Advance model. It’s a two-row sport ute that should be high on test drive lists. 😃 SUBSCRIBE ► http://bit.ly/SUB2DRIVEN TURN ON NOTIFICATIONS BY CLICKING THE “BELL” BUTTON AFTER SUBSCRIBING! — FOLLOW TOM VOELK AND GET DRIVEN GEAR! — MY SITE ► http://tomvoelk.com TWITTER ► https://twitter.com/TomVoelk — MORE CAR REVIEW VIDEOS! — Porsche 911 Turbo S ➜ http://bit.ly/2rYfE2B 2012 Range Rover ➜ https://youtu.be/od_tb2CPGIU 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport ➜ https://youtu.be/oJhw3ukh7Os 2012 Audi A6 ➜ https://youtu.be/B_LHfguP9yQ Dodge Challenger ➜ https://youtu.be/mdexvQSLvfU 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S ➜ https://youtu.be/mdexvQSLvfU 2017 McLaren 570GT ➜ https://youtu.be/R9aAjldQO6U 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB ➜ https://youtu.be/MzdwLJEuB5s 2016 Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 ➜ https://youtu.be/Et74LRlzSm8 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet ➜ https://youtu.be/zGJjeeK01us About Tom: Tom Voelk is an award-winning automotive contributor to The New York Times.

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.
In this in-depth comparison, we're putting the all-new 2019 Acura RDX vs the 2019 Infiniti QX50, its biggest rival.

We will look at many categories like interior comfort and features, exterior features and design, interior ergonomics, technology (infotainment), rear seat comfort, tow ratings, safety ratings, powertrain info and much more.
