Acura announced that the 2020 RDX is now available in dealerships. Pricing was also released, reflecting an increase of exactly $200 across the board. The only news for 2020 seems to be the addition of a new Platinum White color option.

    2020 Acura RDX Hits Dealerships


    May 1, 2019 - TORRANCE, CALIF.
    Acura RDX dominates as the retail best-selling model in luxury's largest segment and with a 10-month streak of record sales
    New Platinum White exterior color for 2020 model year
    RDX offers an array of class-leading technology and safety features, including standard AcuraWatch™ and the award-winning True Touchpad Interface™
    TORRANCE, Calif. – The 2020 Acura RDX enters dealerships as the retail best-selling compact luxury SUV in America, helping RDX set a new all-time annual sales record in 2018 and posting its tenth consecutive record month in March, 2019. 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 2020 RDX also includes the critically-acclaimed True Touchpad Interface™, Acura's groundbreaking user interface tailored around the driver. Also offered on RDX is the available ELS Studio 3D™ premium audio, a 16-channel, 710-watt system, featuring four ultra-slim Highline™ ceiling-mounted speakers to create a truly immersive listening experience.

    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.

    The timing of the release of the 2020 model is a little bit interesting. The 2019 models went on sale last June, so this means the 2019 model year was cut slightly short. Is Acura planning something similar for the 2020 model year, setting up for an early 2020 introduction of the 2021 RDX Type S version (with the 3.0 V6 Turbo we've been waiting on?)
