The 2019 Acura MDX returns to the lineup after a 2017 refresh and some tech upgrades for 2018. The model boasts an A-Spec appearance package, an enhanced nine-speed automatic, and new interior and exterior color options among other features. Prices start at $45,295 USD, up $100 USD from last year.

A-Spec models start at $55,795 USD and receive gloss black and dark chrome trim on the exterior. They also get a new front fascia, body-color lower side sills, larger-diameter exhaust finishers, and special 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels wrapped with 265/45-series tires. Inside, you'll find sport seats with red or black leather and black Alcantara inserts, contrast stitching, and A-Spec badging all around.

  Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Acura RDX Which looks better: the new or the old?Acura has made the biggest changes to the front fascia. Like other new Acura vehicles, the RDX features a diamond pentagon grille that's wider than the grille on the previous model. The badge in the center of the grille has grown considerably. The headlamps now feature seven LED clusters instead of five, and just below, the daytime running lights take on a more jagged shape. You'll also find stronger lines across the hood and bolder air vents down low. On the new A-Spec version, you're greeted by gloss black accents across the grille and other areas.

Across the lineup, there are new exterior color options, including Gunmetal Metallic, Majestic Black Pearl, Performance Red Pearl, Canyon Bronze Metallic, and Apex Blue Pearl, the last of which is exclusive to A-Spec models. Desert Olive Ash wood trim and high-contrast interior stitching are added to the lineup, and there are now standard four-way power lumbar adjustments on the driver and front passenger seats.

The MDX offers the Technology, Advance, and Entertainment packages. Buyers can opt for the Technology and Advance packages separately, or with an Entertainment package. The Technology and Entertainment packages receive a new second-row seat configuration that makes it easier for passengers to get in and out of the third row. Meanwhile, the Advance package now gets matching wood center console trim and body-color lower garnishes, as well as newly designed 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels with a machine finish and Shark Grey accents. The new wheels are a half-inch wider and come shod in wider 265/45-size tires. Advance models start at $57,045 USD, while Technology models start at $50,295 USD.
