This 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec is wearing an exclusive new shade of blue

Interestingly I was just chatting with someone over the weekend who was asking me whether or not the RDX would be offered in the "nice blue" color that the TLX A-Spec gets. The blue on the TLX A-Spec is called Still Night Blue Pearl, and was borrowed from Honda (Accord Coupe), but we've recently learned that Acura is launching a new shade of blue with the 2019 Acura RDX. Acura calls it Apex Blue Pearl*, and it will only be available on A-Spec models. We should have a lot more photos and information about the 2019 RDX in the next week or so, so be sure to stay tuned!

*UPDATE: Somebody in the comments has pointed out that Honda had a shade of blue with this same name for the S2000 CR, but this is apparently a NEW Apex Blue Pearl, and not the same color as the blue that was applied to the S2000 CR.

The photo below was grabbed from an Acura Tweet we spotted today.
