What We Like

Huge interior for its segment; tons of features at a reasonable price; exceptional safety content and ratings; higher-quality cabin and better driving experience than the previous RDX

What We Don't

The Acura True Touchpad Interface may irritate some users; A-Spec can't be had with higher-end feature content

What's New in the 2019 Acura RDX?

The Acura RDX was completely redesigned for 2019.


Which RDX is the Best?

The base RDX includes features that cost extra from most rivals. So there's certainly no shame in skipping the options packages. Then again, since the RDX is cheaper than most, you can add the fancy stuff at a lower price point.

How Much Does a 2019 Acura RDX Cost?

The 2019 RDX is technically offered in a single trim level, but there are three optional packages available that significantly increase feature content and price. All are available with FWD or AWD.

Standard equipment includes 19-inch wheels, four driving modes, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, a backup camera, automatic LED headlights, a power lift gate, a panoramic sunroof, proximity entry and push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated 8-way power front seats with 4-way power lumbar adjustment, simulated leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Infotainment content includes Acura's True Touchpad Interface (10.2-in screen, center-console touch controller), in-car Wi-Fi, two USB ports, Apple CarPlay, HD and satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack and a 9-speaker sound system.

The Technology package adds different 19-in wheels, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic warning, front and rear parking sensors, GPS-linked climate control (it can detect the sun's position and alter air flow accordingly), leather upholstery, two USB ports in the back seat, integrated navigation and a 12-speaker Panasonic/ELS Studio sound system.

From there, offerings fork in two directions.

The A-Spec package requires the Technology package, and then adds exterior and interior styling variations that we highlight in-depth in our video "2019 Acura RDX vs. RDX A-Spec: What's the Difference?" Key equipment additions include 20-in wheels, LED fog lights, heated and ventilated front seats and a 16-speaker Panasonic/ELS Studio audio system.

The Advance package also requires the Technology package, but adds adaptive suspension dampers, automatic wipers, a hands-free power lift gate, LED fog lights, acoustic front-side glass, a backup camera washer, a head-up display, a surround-view parking camera, heated and ventilated 12-way front seats with power adjustable bolsters and thigh support, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel and a 16-speaker sound system.

The Advance content cannot be paired with the RDX A-Spec.

Acura RDX Safety

Is the 2019 Acura RDX a Safe Car?

Every RDX comes standard with eight airbags (front, front-side, side-curtain, front knee), stability and traction control, a backup camera, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic warning are included with the Technology package.

The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the RDX a Top Safety Pick+. It received the best possible marks in every single IIHS category, which is extremely rare.

2019 Acura RDX vs the competition

2019 Volvo XC60 -- The stylish XC60 is another of the more spacious vehicles in the segment, and, like the RDX, it boasts sterling safety credentials. It's one of our must test-drives.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class -- It's considerably smaller than the RDX inside, but the GLC offers a sophisticated driving experience, a truly luxurious cabin and classic styling.

2019 BMW X3 -- The long-time go-to choice for those seeking a sporty luxury SUV, the latest X3 is now a little more comfort-focused. However, it's still well-rounded, well-made and quite spacious.

Used Acura MDX -- If you need even more space, and/or if a new MDX is too rich for your blood, a used or certified pre-owned choice would be a great option given Acura's excellent reputation for reliability.
