2020 RDX test drive

Has anyone taken a 2020 RDX for test drive? I presume it will be exactly the same as 2019, just curious if they are on any lots yet?

WoodyB mentioned his brother's dealer just received some 2020s on another thread. The biggest change is the color white is being replaced by another color white.

Does the new white look different from the old white?

With the 19 being all new, the 20 will be exactly the same with option differences and color changes as mentioned above.

Cars.com shows 198 2020 RDX's in dealer inventories - 41 of which have photos, so they're actually there. The same website shows 7,473 2019 RDX's. Not all dealers list there inventory on Cars.com, so the actual numbers will be higher.

Yes. The "new" white is very white. It makes the "old" white look somewhat yellow/tan.

Personally, I prefer the old White Diamond Pearl over the new Platinum White Pearl because it looks richer and more upscale to me. Bright white makes me think of rental cars and service trucks.

I have the WDP, only because there wasn't a red one available when I was buying. Red was my first choice. I don't mind the white, I feel it is just "plain" looking. I wanted the parchment interior, IIRC, to get parchment, the two choices were white or red (and maybe black, which I will never buy). I think any white car looks like rental cars and service trucks. Even without comparing the two whites side by side, I can see how the WDP would have a "yellow/tan" appearance. It will be interesting to actually see them side by side.

I've always wanted a white car but for whatever reason it has never worked out and honestly I'm somewhat glad it didn't work out. I also get that service vehicle vibe from white cars, I would say the exception is like the A-Spec where the white makes the gloss black accents pop out but on the normal model it's not very attractive.

First time I've posted on this forum in many years (my last Acura was two vehicles ago).

I have settled on an RDX though. The 2020s are apparently already on the way to my dealer. I am sooooo hoping that Android Auto is up and working by then. I really don't care if they make no other changes.

I spent the day test driving the RDX, XC60, Q5, and X3. The RDX came out on top, mostly for comfort reasons.

Don't hold your breathe. The AA application will come out in the 2019 and 2020 at the same time via a software update and I don't think any of us are expecting it to happen soon.

I had a similar situation with my Lincoln. When I purchased, it did not have AA. I was told it would arrive via an update - which it eventually did. The Lincoln has a very conventional touch screen interface though.

I do think an update is very possible, mainly because the new version of AA is designed for widescreens like the one in the Acura.

FWIW, when I got my update to Sync 3 (the Ford system) the new vehicles did get it before the existing ones. That makes sense because downloads always incorporate some complexities.

Anyway, your skepticism here is obviously warranted - given the way Acura has jerked the early adopters around over this issue.
