The 2019 Acura RDX Prototype made its world debut today at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, providing a first look at the bold new design, advanced technology and luxury features of the luxury, five-passenger SUV, launching later this year. An established, perennial top-seller, the RDX has recorded five consecutive years of record sales and seven straight years of year-over-year sales growth

Acura True Touchpad Interface
The RDX heralds the launch of Acura's all-new, True Touchpad Interface, which features an Android-based operating system projected onto a dual-zone, 10.2-inch full-HD display mounted high atop the center console close to the driver's natural line of sight, and an available interactive head-up display (HUD).

The system is designed to combine the advantages of both conventional touchscreen and remote-based approaches. A traditional touchscreen is intuitive and direct – what you see is what you press – but the placement of the screen is out of the driver's natural line-of-sight. A remote interface solves this problem, but the interaction between the remote and display is often clumsy.

Unlike existing remote interfaces that operate like a computer mouse, every spot on the RDX's touchpad is mapped precisely – one-to-one – with the corresponding action on the center display – as the world's first application of absolute positioning in the driving environment. For instance, a tap on the top left corner of the touchpad corresponds precisely with the action on the top left of the center display.

All elements of the Acura True Touchpad Interface, including the new operating system with simple, clean graphics and menu structures, were designed in concert to work seamlessly with one another. Also debuting on the RDX, is a new natural language voice recognition system, which dramatically improves the ease and intuitiveness of voice commands in the vehicle.

"Absolute positioning transforms the touchpad experience, making it personal, intuitive and particularly well-suited for premium, driver-centric, performance machines," said Ross Miller, senior engineer of user interface research. "It's also designed to be adopted quickly and easily, as drivers become acclimated and comfortable in minutes."

Stand-out Features and Technology
The 2019 RDX Prototype uses four ultra-thin, ceiling-mounted speakers to add a new dimension of sound and fidelity to the audio experience. The 16-channel, 710-watt Acura ELS Studio 3D system was developed by Panasonic and tuned by Grammy-winning music producer and longtime Acura partner, Elliott Scheiner.

All 2019 RDX models will come equipped with the AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. Additional available connected-car and driver-assistive features include next-generation AcuraLink® with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Hill Start Assist, Surround-View Camera System, front and rear parking sensors, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor and Blind Spot Information system.

      Being an ex-owner of a TLX, I know what is Acura. I am eagerly looking for the arrival of this new RDX. However want to see where it stands against Audi Q5 and AR’s Stelvio. I am sure, my next car is one of these 3.

      As an engineer in this industry I’m drooling. But a few things. First a compliment then a complaint. I believe this cockpit will set a new industry standard taking the best I’ve ever seen from all the top manufacturers, forcing them all to up thier game. It’s simply just simple with all the bells and whistles. Now the complaints quickly. No wireless Apple CarPlay. I hate taking my phone out everytime I step into my car. Only bmw has wireless. I wish we could lock that option into the screen or lock the standard ACURA screen or whatever we use most. Next, as a mdx owner I’m still frustrated the center computer display above steering doesn’t have a simple digital readout of MPH vs the old needle gage. Yea yea I know it’s going to be on the HUD. But in direct sunlight that’s annoying. Last I’m curious how well adaptive cruise and steer will work compared to Nissan pro pilot and Cadillac supercruise. I know it will be less intuitive than Cadillacs but one can dream it will be close.

      The Cereal Tree Seems like it. He hasn't done a review for them in quite a while.
