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.

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.
