2020 Acura RDX Specs, Type S, Hybrid

The last-year redesign has brought a lot of changes on this compact crossover, so we are now talking about one of the best models in the class. Excellent driving dynamics, powerful engine, and luxurious cabin are just some of the strong points of this amazing crossover. The 2020 Acura RDX will represent the second production year, so would normally expect to see no bigger changes. However, various reports suggest a couple of interesting changes for the next year. Some of them suggest a performance version, which would come as the 2020 Acura RDX Type S.

Others speculate about the hybrid version. However, there are still no words from the officials, so take these reports with a dose of a reserve. On the other side, the thing that seems certain is that the new model will continue with a generous list of standard equipment and there is a chance to see a couple of new color options in the offer. Other than, things will probably remain the same.

In terms of base design characteristics, we definitely won’t see any important change for the next year. The recent redesign has brought a lot of improvements, so the new model is now pretty amazing in all aspects. Of course, the most notable is the new styling, which is characterized by a much sharper styling approach. The new RDX definitely looks amazing. Besides new styling, mechanics are also completely new. The result is a much better driving experience, thanks to significantly improved dynamics and great comfort.

All in all, it would be irrational to expect any significant change for the next year in this aspect. However, don’t exclude a possibility to see minor updates, such as new 2020 Acura RDX colors, for example. The current models come with numerous finishes in the offers, but novelties in these things are always more than welcome.

Interior

With all the novelties that came with the recent redesign, the RDX features arguably one of the finest interiors in the class. The overall cabin quality is impressive, as most surfaces feature hi-quality soft-touch materials. Besides the classy dashboard look, this cabin is also very comfortable and functional. First of all, the front seats are amazing and deliver excellent support and plenty of comforts.

Another important thing to mention is that the 2020 Acura RDX interior features very good sound insulation, so the cabin remains quiet, in aspects of both high engine revs and wind noise. The second half of the cabin is also quite amazing. The back seats are very comfortable and deliver plenty of legroom. Also, the cargo area features above-average volume, with around 30 cubic-feet behind rear seats.

2020 Acura RDX Features

This is the aspect where we could see a couple of novelties for the next year. Still, we have to say that the current model is already pretty generous in terms of standard equipment. When it comes to tech goodies, all versions feature things like 10.2-inch infotainment screen, 9-speaker audio system, panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, Apple CarPlay and many more. In higher trims, you can also get GPS-linked climate control, navigation, premium audio system with 12 or 16 speakers, etc.

In terms of advanced driver aids, all models feature standard AcuraWatch suite. This package includes advanced systems like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, road departure mitigation, etc. You can get even more in top-range models, which offer a head-up display, a surround-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring etc.

2020 Acura RDX Engines

When it comes to the powertrain, count on the same turbo-four engine. This efficient unit is good for about 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, which is enough to provide pretty good performances. Besides plenty of power, the engine is also characterized by good fuel economy. You can count on 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. These are definitely above-average numbers for the class.

Besides this efficient four-cylinder engine, some reports suggest that the 2020 Acura RDX V6 could come as well. Allegedly, the company prepares a performance version of this crossover, which would come under the famous “Type S” badge. However, we are still waiting to hear some words from the officials.

Is there a chance to see a hybrid version in the offer?

Another rumored novelty for the next year is the 2020 Acura RDX Hybrid. According to many reports, the company prepares an electrified version of this crossover. Unfortunately, details are still unavailable.

2020 Acura RDX Release Date and Price

Despite the fact that there is a chance to see a couple of very interesting changes for the next year, the 2020 Acura RDX release date most likely won’t be scheduled for an earlier date than usual. Expect to see it sometime late in the year, with the base price of around 38.000 dollars. Key competitors are models like BMW X3, Audi Q5, Lexus NX etc.
