2020 Acura RDX: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

Last year, the Acura RDX went through a complete redesign, bringing in a new look, an upgraded powertrain, and a sporty new interior. With this look still fresh, we expect everything to remain virtually identical in the 2020 RDX.

For 2019, the Acura RDX received an all-new body that boasted strong lines, a new grille, and sportier proportions. Inside, these characteristics continued with its standard sport seats, shapely dash, stylish steering wheel, and clutter-free center stack.

With its looks remaining the same, we also expect the long list of standard features to carry into the 2020 RDX lineup with no changes. If this proves true, its standard features will include a 10.2-inch display screen, a nine speaker audio system, Apple CarPlay, an auto-dimming mirror, ambient lighting, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, 12-way power front seats, and more.

2019 Acura RDX

We expect the 2020 Acura RDX to hit showrooms with the same powertrain as the current model, which includes a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 272 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. This will all head through the same 10-speed automatic transmission on its way to the front wheels. Torque-vectoring all-wheel drive will remain an option.

The current Acura RDX is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ thanks to its “Good” scores in all crash tests and a “Superior” score in the front-crash prevention test. What’s more, the latter requires no options, as the 2019 RDX comes standard with automatic emergency braking. We expect these ratings and its Top Safety Pick+ qualifications to remain the same in the 2020 Acura RDX.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2020 Acura RDX yet, but we expect it to arrive in the early summer of 2019.

Pricing also remains uncertain for the 2020 Acura RDX, but we expect it to remain roughly the same price as the current RDX, which ranges from $38,395 to $48,495 (destination fees included).

Competitors include the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Lexus NX.
