I would like to know the breakdown of the RDX models. Based on this forum it seems as though the Advance and ASpec are the top models for the RDX. Just curious.

@wargor...have you visited Acura's website? It's all there my friend

The Advance is the Top Model and the A-Spec is positioned right below it.

I think @wargor wants to know the sales distribution of the 2019 RDX trim levels ( "packages" in Acuraspeak )

But I've never seen that breakdown, from any car manufacturer.

Given that this is an enthusiast forum, I would guess it's not a representative sampling.

That's exactly what I was looking for. I was just curious if it was available. Thanks

It would be interesting to see the breakdown of each trim package as % of overall sales I'd also like to see it for lease vs. buy.

I was told by at least one salesman, they sell mostly Standard and Tech packages because 80% of their sales are leases. Hardly anyone leases an ASpec or Advance because of the higher payments. I don't know about other US regions or Canada. I would think the lease vs. own ratio is not as high in most other places. Kind of a cultural thing. Most of the people I know personally, young and old, lease their cars.

Montréal is definitely an area where I see a lot of A-Spec. I would say it’s the most sold RDX.

I have been seeing several rdxs in the Vancouver region with the majority being ASPECs.

I estimate 2Tech : 5Aspec : 1 Elite: 1PlatinumElite/Advance

Sounds like Acura is really milking you guys up North.

It helps to get additional features on the aspec compared to the us model. Power folding mirrors, spare tire, heated steering wheel, mudguards, etc.

To correct my post above, that was the trim package ratio. I've probably seen at least 20 aspecs on the road.

I'm sure Acura has very granular data on the sales and regional demand of each trim and color.

But where they ever got the idea that Americans don't want power folding mirrors is beyond me.

Lol! Acura sells well in Canada.

If you look closely at the sales numbers, Acura and Lexus aren’t far away, unlike the USA.
Infiniti is way below both brands.

Don’t these people know how pissed some posters are about stuff? I still have a hard time dealing with the absence of folding mirrors.

Don't know if I would call that strong; it barely out-sold the MDX that's going on 6 model years now. The CRV didn't see such a precipitous drop MoM and it's outselling it's bigger brother 3:1.

Rdx has barely any incentives but MDX is at the end of its generation, lots of incentives.

At least in Canada. I could be wrong about the USA.

For RDX, we have $1,500 rebate and for MDX up to $8,000.

Keep in mind that the 2019 RDX launched in June.

Last June included a ton of incentives to clear out the 2018 RDX and probably included people rushing out to buy the 2018 RDX and still get the V6 engine. Not really a one to one comparison.

Excellent observation! I agree. June and July were probably high due to 2018 model.
