The 2019 Acura RDX introduces its latest features at the North American International Auto Show

Introduced globally at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, the 2019 Acura RDX brings excitement to the streets with its new diamond pentagon grill and sharply creased surfaces of the precision design language. Sure to create double-take views along the roads of Santa Barbara, the RDX adds an athletic appeal with its wider stance and longer wheelbase. The track is 1.2 inches wider and wheelbase is 2.5 inches longer than that of its predecessors and shares the basic structural design as the CR-V, but with some upgrades. The upgrades entail an available adaptive damping system tied into the Integrated Dynamics System. This system is offered in four modes: Sport, Sport+, Comfort and Snow. Each can be selected through a dial on the center console. At the time when Acura launches this versatile crossover, it will also be offered in a sportier A-Spec model, which compares to the TLX. The amazing styles of the latest Acura crossover in the 2019 RDX are sure to catch the eyes of Acura aficionados everywhere. Primed for road, the RDX is offered in a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine in combination with a 10-speed automatic and includes a 280 horsepower that delivers 275 lb-ft of torque. This aggressive wonder will hit the showrooms later this year. Stop in at Acura Santa Barbara and ask about the amazing concepts loaded in the 2019 Acura RDX

Interior technology adds to the appeal in the 2019 Acura RDX

The 2019 Acura RDX offers a new True Touchpad interface first debuted last year. There are two main components of the True Touchpad system, a high-resolution, 10.2-inch color screen positioned on top of the dashboard, right in the driver’s line of sight; and a touch pad compared to one on a laptop. The touch pad is located on the center console between the buttons. This concept replaces a dual center display configuration from the past decade. This newest designed display is offered on a 10.2-inch wide screen and is mounted closer to the driver’s line of sight. The user touches the upper right corner of the pad where an indicator will appear on the screen. Acura boasts that every point on the pad will correspond directly to the display so the user (driver or passenger) will not have to look down when manipulating it.

The All New 2019 Acura RDX appealing to the eye with changes abundant

Changing from the longer front end, it’s easy to see, though masked until formal introduction, the 2019 model RDX’s nose is quite smaller than its predecessors. With a hint of MDX in the front end, the sheik front grille completes its stylish design. Acura offers headlight revisions that include sleek LED strips to add the new RDX appeal. The front bumper quickly follows with its enhanced characteristics. The larger corner vents and long LED fog lights surround a wide mouth air dam that works by forcing cold air into the transmission and radiator. The massive front wheel wells offer a masculine look while the delicate and rounded exterior below the belt lines offer an robust feel, new to the 2019 Acura RDX. The back wheels wells blend well as they sit flush with the rear body. The backside design is clever with its high-mounted slanted rear lights that hint of feisty eyebrows. It also includes two tail pipes that blend in at each lower corner with a spare tire in between to complete the unique character in the 2019 RDX model. The rough terrains of the Santa Barbara countryside have nothing on this rugged Acura model. Take a moment to visit Acura Santa Barbara and ask about the latest styles to come in the 2019 Acura RDX.

Enjoy Luxury at an Affordable Price with the 2017 Acura RDX

2017-03-10T11:21:50+00:00March 10th, 2017|Acura, New Vehicles, Safety, Technology|

The Acura RDX is for drivers who value comfort, safety, and technology, but still want a luxurious driving experience.

The Acura RDX is sort of the little brother option to the Acura MDX. It is a compact luxury crossover SUV that is simple, but elegant from the inside out. The Tampa Bay Times claimed that, “Acura may have found its aesthetic sweet spot” with the RDX. The 2016 model of the RDX one-ups its predecessors in every aspect by sporting a simple, sexy style while bringing more content, more safety features, a modest power increase, and 1-mpg rise in EPA highway fuel economy to an impressive 28-mpg with all-wheel drive. As an authorized Acura dealer, Acura Santa Barbara is excited to offer this level of luxury at an affordable price. So come visit Acura Santa Barbara to learn more about our different Acura RDX models and other luxury Acura models.

The Acura RDX is Safe, Smooth, and Stylish

One thing that Acura drivers can always count on is that the designers of their vehicle had safety in mind as a top priority. The Acura RDX is another example of this. Some safety features available for the luxury crossover are:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist – This feature applies brakes to each individual tire as needed to reduce the risk of over or understeering or loss of traction in wet or unstable conditions.
  • Blind Spot Information System – This feature can detect vehicle’s in the next lane’s alert zone while going over 20 mph. If the driver signals that he/she is changing to that lane, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors with Multi-View Rear Camera – This feature alerts the driver when they are nearing an object while parking with a series of beeps that becomes more rapid as the driver gets closer. The multi-view rear camera assists the driver in determining the width and depth of parking spots, giving a clear view as to whether there are any obstacles.

In addition to safety, the Acura RDX delivers a smooth driving experience on just about any driving surface, eliminating the annoyance of unkempt pavement. The 3.5-liter V-6 engine pairs well with the six-speed automatic transmission that feels nicely attuned to the engine’s powerband. The result is a consistent and uninterrupted luxurious ride. Visit our knowledgeable Acura-trained sales experts at Acura Santa Barbara to learn more about the Acura RDX and its individuality as an affordable luxury crossover SUV.

In addition to being named the Best Luxury Compact SUV for the Money, the model has also received the title of Best Buy Award in the Luxury SUV/Crossover category from KBB.com for the 2015 model year. But all of that is in the past now, and Acura is looking forward to even better things to come from the 2016 model year line.

The 2016 Acura RDX was just revealed at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show and promises to be even more desirable than ever before.
