Acura is offering up a first tease of the 2019 RDX. But it should stay close to the look of the earlier concept.

We got a first look at Acura’s new RDX Prototype at the North American International Auto Show in January. Now, the Japanese luxury brand is getting ready to show off the real thing.

The production version of the Acura RDX will break cover at the New York Auto Show two weeks from now and it’s expected – no surprise – to hew closely to the design theme we first saw in Detroit, with a more athletic and sporty look than the outgoing crossover-utility vehicle.

“The third-generation RDX, launching mid-2018, is the first in a new generation of Acura products featuring the brand’s new design language,” the automaker noted in a release accompanying this teaser image.

Acura will give us a more detailed look at the 2019 RDX Prototype in Detroit next month.

It was the first of the Japanese luxury brands but Acura has been struggling to catch up to newer siblings Lexus and Infiniti in recent years, and is hoping that with the upcoming launch of the 2019 RDX sport-utility vehicle it will finally shift into high gear.

Taking aim at one of the U.S. market’s fastest growing segments, the compact ute picks up on some of the key design cues first seen with the Precision Concept first shown at the 2016 North American International Auto Show. This teaser image gives us a hint of what we’ll see when the latest “prototype,” really a thinly disguised production model, makes its debut in Detroit on January 15, 2018.

“Representing the most extensive Acura redesign in more than a decade, the new RDX is the first in a new generation of Acura products inspired by ‘Precision Crafted Performance’ and signals the beginning of a new era for the luxury automaker,” or so declares a statement accompanying the RDX teaser image.
