Acura Teases its Third-Generation RDX Prototype

Touted as the most extensive Acura redesign in more than a decade, the Acura RDX Prototype will make its debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

Entering its third generation, the new RDX will ride on a new, Acura-exclusive platform, while incorporating key design elements from the Acura Precision Concept and Acura Precision Cockpit. On the outside, it boasts a low, wide, and sleek presence of the Precision Concept to an SUV with strong character lines that run along the entire profile of the vehicle. Inside, the next-generation RDX incorporates elements from the Precision Cockpit including an all-new interior design, user interface, and operating system designed from a clean sheet.
