How did Honda make and Engineer the 2019 Acura RDX? This is a sports car with a SUV skin. ACE Body Structure, SH AWD, Double Stamped Door Rings, 5 link rear suspension but How does it work? Watch as I interview the Honda engineers that made this new RDX safer, more fun to drive, faster, with the best handling ever. This RDX 1st look video will show you Why the All New 2019 RDX Drives So Well. Powered by a new 2.0 Turbo engine and a 10 speed transmission with SH All wheel Drive. All the tech that went into this new Acura SUV will separate it from the competition.

Thank You to all the Honda team that helped build and create this also Big shout out for the help with this video that will teach others what is going on inside.

      Okay I am not here to bash but the adjustable speed sensing steering reminds me of my Baby. See Link below.
      I know it's better but, I am just saying in 1990 it was around on my Acura.


      Now for the link below the car is original except the rims have been refinished and the bumpers repainted. There are some nicks and a few minor dents in the doors and body but heck it's 31 years old. No body rush under it. It was undercoated since day one. Yes undercoating works. 31 years proves it and also rinsing underneath when I wash the car.

      Have a 2020 RDX SH-AWD A-Spec for less than two month and absolutely love it. One thing however puzzles me. When you select metric units the speed and distance switch to metric but not the temperature units. Same goes for my 2018 CR-V EX-L. Same issue on Canadian vehicles, everything but temperature can be switched to US standard units. Regardless whether the change of temperature units is possible through the driver interface or not, I would like to know how is it accomplished. If anybody knows - share with me.

      How about Acura and Honda finally builds quiet cabins? For 28 years I’d owned Acura and Honda vehicles until last year. I’d had it with the cabin noise and repairs.

      Ten gears is a lot of gear climbing. I’d wait and see how this transmission works after a year or two.

      Still have an '09 RDX and glad to see the SH-AWD back. Is the futures A-spec going to have the V6 Turbo option or will this model always have the Vtec Turbo 4? Are any of the drive modes user programmable? For instance with a 10-speed tranny there is a concern about constant shifting and w/o knowing how smooth it feels, it could be annoying. Great video.

      So if it's more rigid in an accident (struck by another vehicle) all the shock will be absorbed by the humans inside the vehicle (soft tissue) soft tissue injuries will be off the sale in the 2019 RDX? Rigidity may not be a good idea?

      If you could tell people in Acura my massage, please tell that new mode dial controller is really ugly, although it’s a personal taste because I don’t how many agreed with me in that. Two or four buttons, or with one more button in the middle, may sound better.
      Also, for dynamic driving mode selection, wouldn’t be better if computer select after I highlighted for period of time, say 2 seconds, instead of currently instantaneous selection which I think it could tire the system.

The biggest complaint with the 1st Gen RDX is the gas consumption and the harsh ride. This video addresses the ride issues, but how will they get better fuel economy than the 07 by going back to a turbo engine? Thanks and keep up the good work.

I live in the Canadian prairies, so it’s not like hills are a problem. Premium Shell fuel always... it’s well documented that they were hard on fuel so not a surprise when I bought it. Amazed that you get such gas mileage. Wonder what the difference would be?

      VaughnKD there is a lot they can do to improve fuel efficiency. First off, your vehicle has a 5speed auto, while this one has a 10speed auto.. smoother lighter transitions, all new drive train with less resistance, different engine management with totally different mapping’s.. they can put the power when you need and and when you don’t. Your vehicle and this vehicle are totally different.. yours is a lot more analog, this one is a lot more refined and advance.
