The 2019 Acura MDX A-Spec completes the introduction of A-Spec variants to Acura's core model lineup that includes the ILX A-Spec, TLX A-Spec and the all-new 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec.
The 2019 MDX A-Spec adds a dimension of sporty, aggressive and youthful appeal to attract new buyers.
Available exclusively with Acura's torque vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, the 2019 MDX A-Spec features a more athletic stance highlighted by larger 10-spoke, 20-inch Shark Grey alloy wheels wrapped in low profile 265-series tires.
An aggressive new front fascia, body-color lower sills, larger-diameter exhaust finishers, as well as gloss-black and dark chrome decoration for the headlights, grille, window surround and rear tailgate spoiler further distinguish the MDX A-Spec. Interior enhancements to the three row SUV include sports seats trimmed in rich red or black leather with black Alcantara inserts, high-contrast stitching, unique A-Spec gauges, sport pedals, carbon-look console trim, a thicker-rimmed A-Spec-badged steering wheel with paddle shifters and an exclusive A-Spec door step garnish.
As with all MDXs, the A-Spec features the AcuraWatch suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment, including Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with low-speed follow and Road Departure Mitigation. MDX models include standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.
In addition to rapidly expanding the A-Spec sport appearance variant to all core models, Acura has re-affirmed its intention to bring back the vaunted Type-S performance variant over the next few years, alongside a dedicated turbocharged V6 engine in development.
