Introduced back in 2012, the Acura RDX is one of the most popular cars of the Honda subsidiary. Sharing the same platform with the CR-V, Acura added what was missing to make sure the car was better and nicer to drive. Despite they share many components, they are quite different.
One of the problems of the current RDX version is that, although it’s comfortable, it simply isn’t engaging like other cars on the same segment. So, the 2018 Acura RDX is set to solve this issues and a lot more. We believe the new 2018 Acura RDX will take a sportier look and will remain comfortable as it is now.
2018 Acura RDX Release Date
Acura hasn’t set an official date for the release of the new 2018 Acura RDX. We expect to see it debuts in the fall of 2017 and start being sold in the beginning of 2018.
If you like to be on top of the car news, make sure that you know all about the new car releases.
2018 Acura RDX Price
In our opinion, we should see a slight increase in the price of the 2018 Acura RDX. We expect price range to be between $35,600 and $43,000.
2018 Acura RDX Redesign and Changes
We are expecting (and hoping) to see a new 2018 Acura RDX more sporty. So, it will need a makeover. One of the things that should change are the LED lights, that should start to be used both on the exterior of the vehicle as well as on its interior.
We believe the 2018 Acura RDX will feature new bumpers, a new front grille, and some sharper body lines. To make it even more sporty and to optimize the performance, the wheels should be larger as well.

2018 Acura RDX Specs
There are still many doubts relating to the engines that the 2018 Acura RDX will have. There are basically two different paths Acura can take. They can either go to a turbocharged engine or they might simply improve a naturally aspired V6 engine. By looking at the most direct competition of the 2018 Acura RDX, they’re all using the first path. So, this is what appears to make more sense, especially because it will also appeal to drivers to like to have a high performance while maintaining a good fuel efficiency.
The base of the 2018 Acura RDX should then include a 2-liter turbocharged inline 4 that is able to produce 300 of horsepower as well as 300 pounds-feet of torque.
2018 Acura RDX Interior
In terms of the interior of the new 2018 Acura RDX, you should be expecting a complete redesign. The current version of the RDX is still using a dual-LCD screen infotainment system. However, this system is not only slow as it’s not easy to use. So, we should expect to see a completely new infotainment system that only has one screen. The analog instrument cluster should disappear.
Since the 2018 Acura RDX should have a lower center of gravity, this should give the driver the ability to have a much more controllable ride. The seats should be adapted as well as the steering wheel to the new cabin.
Plus, we are sure that 2018 Acura RDX won’t be losing any of the safety features that the current model already as it should also add some new ones.
