    With the addition of MDX A-Spec, sport appearance variants available on all Acura core models
    2019 MDX A-Spec launches this summer
    In addition to expanding A-Spec offerings, Acura to bring back vaunted Type-S performance variant over the next few years

The 2019 Acura MDX A-Spec made a surprise debut today at the 2018 New York International Auto Show. Launching mid-year at Acura dealerships nationally, the MDX A-Spec will complete 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, which also made its world debut today in New York.

“This MDX A-Spec adds a dimension of sporty, aggressive and youthful appeal that will attract new buyers to the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

Coming to market this summer, the 2019 MDX A-Spec aims to further increase excitement and expand the appeal of MDX. The V6-powered TLX A-Spec, introduced last spring, is now the most popular variant in the V6 TLX lineup and attracts a younger, more affluent buyer. Acura also announced the addition of a 2.4-liter TLX A-Spec that will begin arriving at dealers next week.

Available exclusively with Acura’s torque vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), 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 Alcantaraâ 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 will feature the AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment, including Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM). Additionally, all MDX models include standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration.

The 2019 MDX A-Spec will be produced at Honda’s East Liberty Plant in Ohio1. More details will be available soon.

Renewed Commitment to Performance
In addition to rapidly expanding the A-Spec sport appearance variant to all core models, Acura re-affirmed its intention – first announced at the North American International Auto Show in January – to bring back the vaunted Type-S performance variant over the next few years, alongside a dedicated turbocharged V6 engine in development. The Type-S badge last appeared on the 2008 Acura TL, which featured a track-tuned chassis, more powerful engine and brakes, high-performance tires and extensive, sports-oriented exterior and interior modifications.  Like the new engine, the Type-S badge will make its way onto multiple Acura models in the future.

2019 Acura MDX Arrives At Dealers With New A-Spec Variant, Starts At $44,300

https://www.carscoops.com/2018/07/2019-acura-mdx-arrives-dealers-new-spec-variant-starts-44300/

The 2019 Acura MDX has arrived at U.S. dealers and the company has announced pricing will start at $44,300.

Costing $100 more than the 2018 model, the 2019 MDX boasts an upgraded interior that now comes standard with front seats that have 4-way power lumbar adjustment. The crossover also offers new Desert Olive Ash wood trim and contrast stitching.

Moving on, the MDX with the Technology and Entertainment packages now has improved second row seats that offer improved access to the third row. Furthermore, the MDX with the Advance Package features wood trim on the center console.

On the outside, the 2019 MDX will be offered with a handful of new colors including Apex Blue Pearl, Canyon Bronze Metallic, Gunmetal Metallic, Majestic Black Pearl and Performance Red Pearl. The MDX with the Advance Package also comes equipped with additional body-color trim and wider 20-inch aluminum wheels.

 


The biggest change for 2019 is the introduction of the MDX A-Spec. Looking slightly more aggressive than the standard model, the A-Spec is distinguished by a sportier front fascia, dark chrome trim and gloss black accents. The model also has larger exhaust tips, a tailgate-mounted spoiler and 20-inch wheels with low profile tires.

The unique styling continues in the cabin as the A-Spec has leather and Alcantara sport seats with contrast stitching. Buyers will also find a sport steering wheel, gloss black trim and Alcantara upholstery on the door panels. Rounding out the changes are unique gauges and sport pedals.

On the performance front, the 2019 MDX has a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 290 hp (216 kW / 294 PS) and 267 lb-ft (362 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an improved nine-speed automatic transmission which prioritizes second-gear starts to deliver a “smoother, more fluid acceleration feel in normal driving.” Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.

Besides the revised automatic transmission, the MDX has an upgraded engine start / stop system. The model can also be equipped with the active damper system which used to be exclusive to the MDX Sport Hybrid.
