2019 Acura RDX: How Much and Economical is it?

The 2019 Acura RDX goes on sale this Friday. If you’re curious about how much it will cost, the luxury crossover SUV starts at $38,295 with $995 destination fees included. You can add $2,000 to get Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive system (if you need it), and the price becomes $40,295.

Meanwhile, the Tech trim will require you to spend higher at $41,495. For the sportier A-Spec model, which comes with a more aggressive look and better suspension, you will have to pay around $44,495. And the highest Advance trim will set you back $46,395. All these prices, just like the base one, will require an additional $2,000 for the SH-AWD version.

The 2019 Acura RDX packs a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The engine is used on all trims and is capable of producing 272 HP and 380 of torque.

In addition, the new RDX comes with automatic emergency braking, autonomous cruise control, lane keeping assist, and road departure mitigation as standard. This makes the RDX superior compared to its more costly competitors such as the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 and the BMW X3 that make all those tech equipments optional. The base, AWD version of the 2019 RDX also has LED headlights, 19-inch rims, and a panoramic moonroof as standard.

The most efficient RDX will get 22 MPG when driven in urban areas, and 28 MPG on the highway. Blended driving is estimated to give you 24 MPG. Higher variants usually come with higher MPGs, like the A-Spec model for instance, which gives 21 MPG in the city, 26 on highway, and 23 combined.
