For 2019, the MDX is introducing an A-Spec model with standard all-wheel drive and aggressive design elements. The MDX has again updated its 9-speed automatic transmission for further refinement, and made restarts faster for the now-standard idle start/stop system.
Last year, the Acura MDX received a significant redesign, inside and out. This year the 2018 MDX gets an improved infotainment system with more intuitive menus and a redesigned dual-screen interface with faster response. The new system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Acura has also added two new reds to the MDX’s color palette.
A host of updates for the 2017 Acura MDX includes the standard AcuraWatch suite of safety and driver-assist technology, restyled exterior including a new grille, and luxurious 6-passenger seating in top-line MDX Advance trims. The Sport Hybrid uses technology developed for the Acura NSX supercar, setting a new performance standard for the MDX.
