Review: 2019 Acura MDX

October 28th, 2018 by


The 2019 Acura MDX was already a great vehicle, but Acura stepped it up in a significant way for 2019. The MDX is a well-suited family vehicle, but Acura added a sportier touch for 2019 with the A-Spec trim level. The MDX is surprisingly fuel efficient for a full-size crossover which is sure to make you happy every time you visit the pump. The standard offering for the 2019 MDX is full of technology and safety features; you can’t go wrong with this vehicle.

Performance
2019 Acura MDX models have a 3.5-liter V6 under the hood matched to a 9-speed automatic transmission. This duo produces 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. The Acura crossover is ranked to tow up to 3,500 pounds making it the perfect vehicle to tow your toys.

There is another engine option for the 2019 MDX, the Sport Hybrid. This engine option uses a 3.5-liter V6 paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission. This combination powers the Sport Hybrid with 321 horsepower.

Features & Technology
Every 2019 MDX comes standard with leather upholstery, 18-inch wheels, keyless ignition, LED headlights, power moonroof, power-adjustable front seats, three-zone climate control, eight-speaker audio system, four USB ports, and a dual-screen infotainment system with an 8.0-inch screen up top and a 7.0-inch touchscreen below. All-wheel drive is optional on all trim levels for the 2019 MDX.

New for 2019 is the MDX A-Spec model. The A-Spec package will include a sporty body kit, gray 20-inch wheels, unique front fascia, red or black leather seating with Alcantara inserts, a one of a kind steering wheel with paddle shifters, exclusive gauges, carbon fiber accents, and sport pedals and door sills.

Safety
Acura always has drivers safety in mind, and that is evident in the 2019 MDX. Standard safety features on all MDX models include forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane departure alert with lane control, LED headlights, and adaptive cruise control. If you opt for the Technology package, your 2019 MDX will be equipped with blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alert and the Advance safety package will add a surround-view camera.
