What's New for 2019: Acura

November 9, 2018

Honda's luxury division is starting to learn what buyers want: luxurious crossover SUVs. A long-overdue update to the brand's compact RDX arrives for 2019, ushering in a new infotainment system that's likely to spread to other Acura models.

The RDX isn't the only new thing in Acura dealers this year. The automaker's ILX sedan has a revised look, but its underpinnings still share more in common with the last-generation Honda Civic. The ILX gains a new A-Spec trim level that's marginally sportier and Acura extended the same semi-zippy package to its MDX crossover, too.
