Acura RDX Prototype

Now that the next-generation NSX is finally on the road, Acura is building on that momentum with the preview of its upcoming RDX redesign. The close-to-production design realizes the styling previewed in their Precision Concept with its sharp lines and its low and wide athletic stance. 

Performance is a big focus with a 2.0L DOHC VTEC Turbo engine, the first 10-speed automatic transmission in its class, and available torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive. The wider track and longer wheelbase brings a more spacious interior that can be specified with 16-way power seats, Napa leather, brushed aluminum, and open-pore Olive Ash wood. 

Acura is also launching a brand-new touchpad interface that's powered by Android and features a 10.2-inch full HD display and a 16-speaker, 710-watt Acura ELS Studio 3D sound system by Panasonic brings some sonic firepower to the mid-size SUV. 

The new RDX hits showrooms later this year.
