Acura showed us the in prototype form at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. And since Acura -- and parent company Honda -- have a history of showing prototypes that are very close to road-ready, it's no surprise that we'll see the production 2019 RDX at the New York Auto Show later this month.
In addition to the standard RDX, Acura will offer an A-Spec version, teased in the image above. Like other A-Spec models, this version of Acura's new crossover will get unique wheels and other visual tweaks, but will be mechanically identical to other RDX trims.
All RDX models will use a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder VTEC engine, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Acura's wonderful Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system will be available as well, and Acura promises this will be "the quickest and best-handling RDX ever." In fact, the company calls the 2019 RDX the "most extensive Acura redesign in more than a decade."
Look for the redesigned RDX to debut on Wednesday, March 28, on the first New York Auto Show press day. The 2019 RDX will hit Acura showrooms in just a few months.
