2019 Acura RDX Body Structure

2019 Acura RDX

The 2019 Acura RDX chassis sees an increase in the use of high-strength steels, which now comprise 60 percent of the structure.  The biggest news on the 2019 RDX must be its all-new platform, which sees an increase in the use of high-strength steels (now 60%), aided by 37 meters of structural adhesive.

The 2019 Acura RDX features a world’s-first hot-stamped inner and outer front-door-ring structure.  The door ring is the red part below.  The ring includes part of the A-Pillar, B-pillar, roof rail, and rocker panel.
