Acura has announced pricing for the 2019 RDX and the sharp-looking SUV will start at $38,295 (including a $995 destination charge) when it goes on sale at the beginning of June. That's a price increase of $1,300 over the 2018 model. If you want a fully-loaded 2019 Acura RDX, that'll cost you $48,395.

Sure, the new RDX costs more, but it comes with the brand's AcuraWatch suite of safety features and driver aids as standard. The suite of features includes forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning. AcuraWatch was optional on last year's model and was priced at $1,300. So, if you compare apples to apples, the 2019 RDX costs as much as a 2018 RDX with the available AcuraWatch package.

Just like before, the RDX comes with front-wheel drive as standard. Moving up to a model with the brand's Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive system costs $40,295. The Technology and Advance Packages return for 2019. The Technology Package is a $3,200 option, while the Advance Package is an additional $8,100.

The sporty A-Spec model that's fitted with various exterior modifications will start at $44,495.

Despite its higher price tag, the RDX is still a value proposition. It's cheaper than the Audi Q5, Mercedes-Benz GLC, BMW X3, and Volvo XC60. The only competitor that has a lower price tag than the RDX is the Lexus NX.
