2018 Acura RDX Changes, Redesign, Price And Release Date
Acura started the debut for their RDX crossover in 2012 and at that time, it was the most popular models we could see from Honda subsidiary. The car used the same platform as the iconic CR-V, but Acura created a great job by adding a nicer touch for the driver to ride it better. By sharing many parts with the CR-V, we wonder how they can create this car so different. About the new 2018 Acura RDX, we must tell you the truth that its official information cannot tell us more. However, the rumors are quite many like mushrooms in rainy season.
2018 Acura RDX Exterior
Although there are no spy shots available for this new car which can be strong evidence for its arrival, it is speculated to come with the new modular platform. Honda will develop a platform for their new CR-V and if the platform is shared with 2018 Acura RDX, it means that there will be a big weight loss to offer. It doesn’t matter at all if Acura wants to keep the current styling concept because it will have wider, lower and longer design. It can happen if they use new large rims as well as lowered suspension for a slight smaller look than before.

The cabin of 2018 Acura RDX is rumored to have the 7-seat version but it seems that Acura would not go too far by dealing with premium and luxury market.

It is expected to have climate control that passengers can operate in the rear center console along with a sunroof and rear windows.
