Acura sometimes has a few bugs to work out with new models. The all new 3rd Gen 2019 RDX will have a new turbo engine, 10AT, electronics, body, and suspension set-up. The new RDX hasn't even posted the specs on hp/tq or interior/exterior space yet.
I'm interested in replacing my 11 MDX or 08 RDX with the all new RDX. I haven't seen a 1st model year Acura that didn't have a few issues compared to 2nd or 3rd year models. I'm willing to hold out until I can test drive and compared the best bang for the buck. I will compare a used 15-17 MDX sh-awd tech/adv to the all new 19 RDX A-Spec or Adv to see how they compared dollar for dollar with performance, features, safety, and price.
