2019 Acura MDX

What We Like

Exterior design refinements add modern sharpness; available second-row captain's chairs add an executive flair and make third-row access simple; standard level of technology is comprehensive and can be pushed even further with Technology and Advance packages

What We Don't

Despite improvements to its exterior, the MDX can still get lost in a crowd of similar crossovers; only one powertrain choice; Acura recommends premium 91 octane fuel, which is more expensive


Expert Rating

4.6/ 5

4.1/ 5


What's New in the 2019 Acura MDX?

For 2019, the Acura MDX gets some new colors, an available Active Damper System with wider wheel and tire combination, and a revised 9-speed automatic. A new A-Spec package is added, offering wider wheels, an aggressive front fascia, sport seats and standard SH-AWD. Idle Stop is now standard on all models.

Which MDX is the Best?

MDX loyalists will not be disappointed in the latest tweak to their favorite 3-row luxury crossover. We're not sure if it will win over any converts from other brands, but the 2019 Acura MDX with the Technology package is the one to look for. It offers the most desirable features, like navigation, blind spot monitoring and premium audio, without the expensive high-end features that come with the Advance package. Whichever MDX you select, you'll get a well-sorted, luxurious and roomy crossover that's ready for a road trip.
