Acura is making several updates and offering a new trim on the MDX crossover for 2019. The changes are fairly minor -- new interior trim wood, standard four-way power lumbar adjustments for the front seats and five new exterior colors. An active damper system is now offered as an option across the line.
But the biggest news is the rollout of a new A-Spec trim. A-Spec is an appearance package that offers a sportier exterior look, with trim-specific 20-inch wheels and low-profile tires, a unique front fascia (yes, the big grille is still there), dark trim and larger exhaust finishers. A-Spec is the only way to get the new Apex Blue Pearl exterior paint, as well.
With the A-Spec trim, the interior offers red or black leather-trimmed Alcantara faux-suede sport seats, special A-Spec gauges and a sport steering wheel with paddle shifters.
