If you want to have a stylish and modern SUV without having to hurt your wallet, then the upcoming 2023 Acura RDX would be a perfect option. Although the 2019 model is said to be the best design of Acura, it should be interesting what the manufacturer has in store for their 2023 model. Getting a refreshed look isn’t impossible – and if a bit of refreshed work can help, there’s nothing wrong with it, right?
When the 3rd generation of Acura RDX, which was launched as the 2019, was introduced, everyone was wowed and marveled. The body creases and lines are sharp and precise. And top it off with updated powertrain and new technologies, you can expect greater improvements and better performance. For the 2023 model, the company would be releasing the 4th generation. And when there is a mild refreshment happening to the line, no one would object it.
The Exterior Design
Hopefully, the manufacturer won’t do anything drastic or complete redesign to the already good body style. The Acura would still be marvelous with the big LED headlights, striking body creases and lines, bold grille, and artistically swooping roofline. If the company wants to have a mild refreshment, they can focus on the mild and soft part headlights, which include updated bumpers and lighting.
The Interior Cabin
A more visible update may take place inside the cabin. The updates for 2023 Acura RDX is meant to create a more modern look. The updates may include push button transmission, sporty design for the steering wheel, dashboard top infotainment screen, and so much more. Whether there is going to be new color or new materials (and accents) being used, the design from 2019 model is already impressive enough.
Engine and Performance
The current line is the four cylinder turbocharged engine with 2.0 liter capacity that is shared with Type R Civic. This arrangement is good enough to produce 272 hp of power and 280 Nm of torque. With auto 10 speed transmission and front wheel (or all wheel) driving system, the engine department has nothing to complain about. However, auto enthusiasts won’t mind getting some updates, especially if the company is able to deliver higher output and punchier power.
For the safety features, the ride gets Good for their crash safety rating. They also get Advanced for the auto vehicle to pedestrian emergency brake, Superior for the auto vehicle to vehicle emergency brake, and Good for the standard headlights. All of these are rated for the 2019 model. Hopefully, it gets better with the 2023 upcoming model.
Price and Availability
The company hasn’t said anything official about the price ranges and the availability. However, if we expect them to follow the same schedules as last year, the new model should be ready around summer time in 2023.
For the price range, there is no info either. But if they don’t have any change or they have some mild works done, the price should be close to the current one, ranging between $39,500 and $54,000. We just have to wait and see for more official release of 2023 Acura RDX.
