The 2019 Acura RDX offers handling fit for combatting all the elements, as well as a host of technologies to make your next road trip around Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Butler a breeze.
The Baierl Automotive team has written this 2019 Acura RDX review to show you just what to expect…
2019 Acura RDX: Performance Specs
A sense of power and control is important in a crossover vehicle, especially if you’re heading off-road or have to navigate rough weather. What the 2019 Acura RDX has under the hood ought to offer more than enough capabilities for both.
A 2.0L 4-cylinder engine may seem like a modest choice for this class of car; however, the 2019 RDX adds in standard turbocharging to amp things up. Thanks to this boost in power, your crossover will regularly generate 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.
A front-wheel drivetrain is also standard in the 2019 RDX, but it also offers a special handling option. Available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) is a feature exclusive to Acura.
In SH-AWD®, weight distribution, traction, and driver input are all carefully balanced to provide all-weather grip and agile dry-road handling. In both cases, you’ll have more precise cornering and control.
Room for the Whole Family
On a road trip, the company you keep is just as important as the destination (probably more so). So, you’re going to need room for everyone to fit in comfortably.
In total, the 2019 Acura RDX offers 104 cubic feet of total passenger space, besting quite a few other crossovers in its class. This includes 42 inches of legroom for front-sitting occupants and 38 inches of legroom for those in the back.
Speaking of second-row passengers, we don’t want them sacrificing any of their personal space for cargo. Fortunately, there’s 29.5 cubic feet of room for luggage behind the second row.
Smarter Safety for the Acura RDX
SH-AWD® is always working overtime to keep you safe on the road. However, the safety net in the RDX is tightly woven with numerous other smart features.
The heart and soul of RDX safety is the available AcuraWatch™ suite of driver-assistive technologies. Essentially, this suite utilizes sensors and cameras to help predict when a collision may occur. It will either send you warnings or act autonomously to prevent accidents.
A good example of this tech is Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow. While engaged, it maintains a set speed anda following interval. If the car ahead of you hits the brakes suddenly, your car can also brake autonomously to prevent an accident.
In the end, AcuraWatch™ is sort of like having a second set of eyes out on the road.
