On the highway, the 2019 Acura RDX is comfortable and compliant. 2019 Acura RDX also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2019 Acura RDX with a little extra personality.

The 2019 Acura RDX is the base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that features 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2019 Acura RDX Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features located on the upper trim levels can be added to the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL sound system combined with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2019 Acura RDX stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is straightforward to fold down to suit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you will find modest door pockets in the front and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Acura RDX includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
