Acura has revised the MDX for 2019 with new colours, interior and dynamic enhancements, and a new A-Spec package. And there's a slight price increase to go with it.
After refreshing the styling and adding a new hybrid option for 2017, it's time to make some more changes to the MDX for 2019. It starts inside with some added touches that Acura says are intended to "up the luxury quotient." That includes a new available desert olive ash wood trim, high contrast seat and door panel stitching, and contrasting front seat trim. The driver and passenger seats now get 12-way power lumbar adjustment as standard. The MDX Elite adds a new matching wood centre console trim.
In the suspension department, adaptive dampers are now available that Acura says boost ride comfort and handling. The 290 hp 3.5L V6 is unchanged but the nine-speed auto has been modified and Acura says it delivers better drivability and a more fluid acceleration feel.
The MDX gets a refreshed colour palette for 2019 as well. The usual grey, black, and white are available along with red and blue and an A-Spec exclusive Apex Blue.
