Acura MDX Remains Solid Luxury SUV

 

The 2019 Acura MDX continues to provide excellent value and strong upside and remains a solid luxury SUV. This stylish, versatile, family-friendly, upscale, sport utility vehicle features three rows of seating, room for seven people and lots of cargo space. It’s perfect for a daily commute to work or to take the kids to school and comfortable enough for long weekend and holiday road trips. It’s strong and durable, yet classy enough to be a luxury midsize crossover SUV division standout. It fits right in at a black-tie event, the kids’ sporting event or in the event you have to load up and go.

A New A-Spec Trim

One of the changes Acura has made to the MDX for 2019 is to add an A-Spec trim model. It has a sportier exterior which features a stylish new front grille, dark trim, 20-inch rims, all-wheel drive and Acura’s unique blue pearl color option. All of these elements combine to make a significant impact on the way the Acura MDX looks, feel and performs. It deserves some consideration if you like the Acura MDX, but want to add a little oomph and take the appearance up a notch on the coolness meter.

A Solid Powertrain

All models of the Acura MDX are powered by a 290 horsepower, 3.5-liter, V6 engine that produces 267 pound-feet of torque. Working in perfect harmony with a nine-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive standard, the combination lets the MDX accelerate from zero to 60 mph in a respectable 6.9 seconds, produces between 19 and 25 miles per gallon and enables it to tow as much as 3,500 pounds. Upgrade to Acura’s optional sophisticated all-wheel drive system called Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive or SH-AWD and the MDX’s towing capacity balloons to 5,000 pounds. Acura also offers a 321 horsepower, 3.0-liter, V6 MDX hybrid sport model with all-wheel drive that delivers 289 pound-feet of torque.

Excellent Performance

The 2019 Acura MDX is all about performance in both standard and Sport mode. Whether you’re tooling around in town, zooming down the highway, maneuvering in freeway traffic, or challenging the s-curves on country roads, the MDX handles with ease and displays exciting agility. Plus, it delivers a smooth, well-balanced, ride in any type of weather or road surface. Engage Sport mode and the MDX’s engine produces a pleasing roar, delivers more power and shows off even better handling and a more nuanced ride.

A Smart, Appealing Interior

The interior of the 2019 Acura MDX is sensibly laid out, has a smart design and looks very appealing. It features intuitive upper and lower touchscreens, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a push button gear selector. It also has lots of head and leg room, attractive, comfortable, leather upholstery, lots of quality material throughout and a third-row seat that when folded down more than doubles the cargo space from 15 to 38 cubic feet.

The 2019 Acura MDX is an attractive, comfortable, fun to drive, SUV that offers great value for the price. If you want to see one in action and take one for a spin, head down to Chapman Acura. You are sure to fall in love at first drive.
