2020 Acura RDX. The original RDX launched for 2007, borrowing much of its underskin engineering from the CR-V. Its underwhelming turbocharged four-cylinder engine and surprising lack of refinement didn’t win much favor with press or public. The first-generation RDX never sold more than 30,000 units annually over the course of its six-year production run.That changed with the second generation and its more refined styling, improved passenger and cargo room, and smooth, powerful V-6. Sales were brisk out of the gate and remained strong, regularly topping 50,000. Helped by prices generally below those of most top rivals, the redesigned model seems to be continuing that success.
The 2019 broke all previous RDX sales records in June 2018, its first month in showrooms. It’s Acura’s best-selling vehicle and ranked No. 1 in the premium compact-crossover class in June, ahead of such competitors as the Audi Q5, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Cadillac XT5, and BMW X3. This in a segment experiencing double-digit growth. Likely very little beyond a new paint shade or two — and higher asking prices. Model-year 2020 is the sophomore season for a premium compact crossover SUV that was fully redesigned for model-year 2019. This third-generation RDX is larger, faster, more fuel-efficient and better looking than its 2013-2018 predecessor. And it no longer shares its understructure with the less prestigious CR-V crossover from Acura’s parent company, Honda.
Maybe you should not. Acura’s strong demand proposals have gained this right and will not have much incentive to manipulate them for 2020. Acura will also not be shy about increasing Crossroads prices that will be essentially reissued 2019. The 2020 lineup should re-create the RDX base available in three optional packages Cost: technology, specifications, and progress. For each Honda / Acura custom, each package is priced as a separate model. The only engine will remain the 4-cylinder turbocharger associated with your choice of front-wheel drive or the Acura All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). The 2019 RDX improves on its predecessor in almost every way. The outer exterior, the interior more comfortable and more technologically advanced, the driving experience is more engaging than ever before. In addition to prices that could undermine competition by thousands of dollars and Acura’s reputation for reliability and strong resale values, RDX should have no problem keeping its sales pace.
It will review the shape that came with the redesign of 2019. Compared with its predecessor, this third generation of the RDX is 2.6 inches longer in the wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear axles), 2.4 inches longer in general, and 1.1 inches wider. Acura first adopted the latest appearance of the foreign brand and the language of interior design. The nose has the same five-year pentagonal network you’ll find on the TLX and MDX mid-sized sedans, but we say the new network works better here. The RDX was designed with it while adding TLX and MDX as part of midcycle updates; it seems to be “hanging on” instead of seamlessly integrating into the structure. All LEDs will feature 20 “RDXs” LED backlight with Acura eye-eye style that adds a dose of grade. The rear body panels generally give the new RDX an aggressive position that is absent before. Looks particularly bold with the A-Spec, which includes glossy black exterior and 20-inch “gray shark” wheels. Abroad, Acura finally seems to have found the right balance between the physical buttons and controls on the climate and audio / information and entertainment screen. The benchmarks are clear, and although many buttons and buttons make the steering wheel look busy, it will adapt quickly to its logical layout. All grades have a 10.2-inch widescreen information and entertainment screen above the dashboard.
It’s not a touch screen. Instead, you can control the view from the trackpad that is similar to the laptop in the central console. His most important innovation is the feature named Acura Absolute Positioning: Place your finger on any part of the trackpad and move the cursor right away to the corresponding location on the screen. It’s very intuitive, wide width is enough to display a range of entertainment information, navigation data and automotive behavior manner. The transmission set is determined by a set of buttons installed on the console instead of the conventional crane. It requires some focus at first, but the feature is a space for the storage area that the console benefits. The container complements a large box, a classic console box and large door pockets. Surprisingly, the expansion of the wheelbase in redesign has not produced more space for travelers, but this does not mean that the cabin is tight. The room is available in the front and back, and the seats are comfortable and supportive. The maximum freight size is slightly reduced in redesign, to 58.9 cubic feet, from 61.3, with the rear seat folding. However, the space behind the back seat rose to 29.5 cubic feet from 26.1, and was covered by a box under the floor in the luggage area.
Instead of sharing its core program with the Honda product, the 2020 Acura RDX has built a unique infrastructure with levels of refinement and rigidity fitted with its upscale position. It borrowed from the parent company a version of a turbocharged 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in the Accord and Civic sports compact cars. At RDX, it produces 272 horsepower, torque and 280 pound pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission. It replaces the second generation of the 3.5-liter V-6 RDX engine, which has 279 hp and a 252-pound torque, and is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Crossover cars now use a 2.0-liter turbo engine as a base. Engine and RDX are compatible with anything for softness and responsiveness. The acceleration is more competitive, at about 5.7 seconds from 0 to 60 mpg, and this engine does not feel tense when passing or merging with fast-moving traffic. The 10-speed automatic transmission, powered by standard wheel carriers, is very suitable for the four turbochargers, allowing it to stay in the ideal power range and stop quickly when you need more zip code. Feel the driving and minimal body quickly turn into turns. So if you do not live in a snowy place, the SH-AWD is a good investment because it greatly improves the handling of dry and wet surfaces.
The system usually operates in the front-wheel drive system, and the system can convert up to 70% of torque available in the rear to achieve better flow than the front slip line. It can distribute up to 100% of the torque automatically on any of the individual rear wheels, thereby enhancing the rotation diversity in most cases. The control disk controls the standard integrated dynamic control system, allowing the driver to choose from four pre-programmed pedals and modes of transport – snow, comfort, sport and sports + – according to driving needs and conditions. Variable dynamics can also change the active damping suspension included in the Advance.Ride package of fixed quality but not too tight. We want to try the RDX on 18-inch wheels and tires instead of standard 19-inch wheels. Includes A-Spec 20s and lower-level wiping tires absorbing 19 seconds across the hills and sharp edges. Try before you buy. of course not. We expect EPA ratings to replicate the ’19 ‘model, which was almost average for the Cross-SUVs along with the 4-liter turbo engines. Compared with the previous V-6, the redesigned RDX engine has been a boost in the fuel economy, but not as much as expected. The 2018 was 22/28/24 mpg from the city / highway / along with the front-wheel drive and 21/27/23 with the AWD. The 20-A A-Spec wheels reduce the 22/27/24 mpg ratio with the front engine and 21/26/23 with all-wheel drive (AWD). (The V8 engine is 2018 RDX at 20/28/23 mpg with front drive and 19/27/22 with AWD.) Acura recommends high-quality 91 gasoline for RDX.
These prices are likely to rise, although the price of the 2020 Acura RDX is expected to be priced at several thousand dollars less than the price of European competitors. The gap can grow more clearly when competitors choose to match the level of standard RDX features. Most competitors are also available with more powerful engine upgrades – you can get the horsepower of the Mercedes GLC 469, for example. While Acura is a real luxury brand, it is decided whether you want to connect your device to your head. The estimated prices here include the Acura destination fee, which amounted to US $ 995 for 2019 RDX. Add $ 2,000 to our estimates for AWD. The RDX 2020 offer with front-wheel drive at about $ 38,600. Using the technology package, the figure is around $ 41,800, and with the A-Spec package, about $ 44,800. The estimated price for ’20 RDX with Advance Package is $ 46,700. The expected date for RDX 2020 is in the summer of 2019.
