The 2019 Acura MDX is here with a whole bunch of updates and one brand-new trim.
The 2019 Acura MDX will start at $45,295, including a mandatory destination fee, for a front-drive base version. The model boasts an A-Spec appearance package, an enhanced nine-speed automatic, and new interior and exterior color options among other features. Pricing for the 2019 MDX Sport Hybrid will be announced next month. It is the only three-row luxury SUV in segment with six straight years of more than 50,000 sales3, and is the #1 retail-selling three-row model in segment year-to-date4.
The first change concerns the Advance package, which for the 2019 MDX has wider wheels (8.5 instead of 8 inches) with more aggressive tires. Buyers can opt for the Technology and Advance packages separately, or with an Entertainment package. New genuine Desert Olive Ash wood trim debuts, and Acura has added high-contrast seat and door panel stitching along with contrasting seat trim for a more upscale look.
The new A-Spec trim level is only available on MDX models equipped with all-wheel drive and adds $8,500 to those models. Fuel economy remains 20 miles per gallon city and 27 mpg highway with front-wheel drive and 19/26 with SH-AWD all-wheel drive. Meanwhile, the Advance package now gets matching wood center console trim and body-color lower garnishes, as well as newly designed 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels with a machine finish and Shark Grey accents. A-Spec models come in slightly lower at 19/25/21 mpg. The interior features sport-bolstered seats in black or red leather with high-contrast stitching and black Alcantara suede inserts. Past year the adaptive dampers were only available on hybrid models.
Both the standard and A-Spec models continue to use Acura's 3.5-liter V6 engine, which is rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. SH-AWD® delivers up to 70 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels and the ability to distribute up to 100 percent of that torque between the left and right rear wheels to optimize available traction and sharpen steering and handling response.
The 2019 MDX is on sale. Its 9-speed automatic transmission gains a smoother, more fluid acceleration feel in normal driving by prioritizing second-gear starts. The system's enhancements now shorten the engine re-start response and the operational smoothness with a new brake pressure trigger and new software upgrades, which results in a more seamless and natural pedal feel.
The MDX will continue to be an incredibly safe auto, thanks to the standard AcuraWatch suite of advanced safety and driver-assist technologies. AcuraWatch includes collision mitigation braking with forward collision warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and road departure mitigation with lane departure warning.
