"We’re pleased with the consistent results across our entire lineup of passenger cars and light trucks for both the Honda and Acura brands, and remain optimistic about the year ahead," said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of the Automobile Division & general manager of Honda Sales.

"The all-new 2019 Acura RDX arrives in dealer showrooms today as the first in a new generation of Acura products. With sales of more than 50,000 units in each of the last three years, RDX remains one of the best-selling vehicles in the luxury crossover segment and we’re confident this all-new model will further build upon that success."

BRAND REPORT

 


Sales Highlights

With strong sales of the outgoing RDX helping Acura maintain a steady sales pace in May, the all-new 2019 RDX arrives in dealers today – the first in a new generation of Acura products completely designed around the brand’s Precision Crafted Performance brand direction.

  • Acura light truck sales remained strong with RDX topping 4,700 in May and MDX passing the 4,000 mark.
  • ILX gained 28.3% on for the month and is up 16.2% year to date.

Model Notes

MDX has done something no other 3-row model in segment can match with six straight years of over 50,000 in sales.

As the only compact luxury SUV with sales topping 50K in each of the past three years, the second-gen RDX hands the baton to the better-in-every-way 2019 RDX, launching today.
