New RDX poised to continue market dominance

Customers are clamoring for a chance to see the all-new 2019 Acura RDX, Columbus auto dealer Steve Lindsay told Honda production associates on Tuesday, and he believes this latest, more performance-oriented version will continue the compact sport utility vehicle’s market dominance.

“Customers are starting to see what Acura can do in performance,” he said, “and we’re seeing game-changing products that come out of Ohio.

“We’ve had a lot of competition in the compact market, but we are the segment leader and will remain so with products like the all-new RDX.” 

Lindsay, who is president of Lindsay Acura, was among the speakers at an East Liberty Auto Plant event celebrating the start of mass production for the Ohio-engineered SUV.

Honda of America Manufacturing Inc. invested $54 million in new technologies and processes at ELP which is the exclusive production home for the RDX.
