A Redesigned Best-Seller: The RDX Prototype is a strong indication of the design direction Acura is taking with its new five-passenger luxury SUV that will launch in mid-2018. The styling is based on the Precision Concept the automaker debuted in Detroit a year ago. Under the hood is a new 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo engine that will be among the most powerful in its class, with a 40 percent gain in low-end torque. Inside, it has a more premium look and feel than ever before, trimmed in real aluminum, real wood and ultra-high-grade Nappa leather as well as an ultra-wide new panoramic moonroof. The vehicle also showcases Acura's new TrueTouchpad interface which combines a 20-inch, high-mounted display screen with a curved touchpad in the center console. A new 'natural language' voice recognition engine makes voice commands easier and more natural than ever before and in back, a programmable power cargo hatch with hands-free operation and a nicely finished extra storage compartment under the cargo floor.
Also included is the full suite of AcuraWatch™ safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment on all grades.
