The 2020 RDX arrives in showrooms nationally beginning tomorrow with a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP1) of $37,600 (excluding $995 destination and handling).

The 2019 Acura RDX recently was named the “Best Compact Luxury SUV for Families” by U.S. News and World Report as well as a “Best New Car for 2019” by Autotrader. RDX’s available ELS Studio 3D™ premium audio system was recognized as “Car Audio System of the Year” by Business Insider, while its industry-first True Touchpad Interface™ was named a “Best of What’s New” technology for 2018 by Popular Science.

Featuring a new Platinum White exterior color for 2020, RDX carries forward the next generation of Acura design, performance and technology that debuted on the all-new 2019 model, including the popular A-Spec sport appearance package. RDX delivers an exceptional driving experience thanks in part to its 272-horsepower (SAE net) turbocharged i-VTEC® engine and available Acura Super-Handling All Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), along with a class-leading array of standard premium features and technologies, including AcuraWatch™ safety and driver-assistive technology, an ultra-wide panoramic moonroof, next-generation Acura JewelEye™ LED headlights, and next-generation Acura sport seats.

The third-generation RDX has received the highest possible safety ratings of TOP SAFETY PICK+ (depending on selected headlights) from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and is expected to repeat this feat for the 2020 model year.
