The time has come for an update for the Acura RDX. Your 2022 model receives remarkable plastic surgery, accompanied by a meticulous revision in acoustic isolation, subtle adjustments in some components of the chassis, and a handful of novelties in the field of technology.

Other very specific novelties that the RDX 2022 presents are a digital speedometer for the 7 “screen of the instrument panel, wireless compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for the infotainment system, USB-C charging ports, and the introduction of Amazon Alexa Like TLX it receives a program with 27 color environments to choose from.
