Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Acura MDX?

The Acura MDX is a luxury SUV that can seat up to seven in three rows and is available in regular or Sport Hybrid form. The regular MDX is powered by a 290-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that works with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The MDX Sport Hybrid has a combined 321 hp with a 3.0-liter V-6, a collection of electric motors and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The MDX can have front- or all-wheel drive, and competitors include the Buick Enclave and Infiniti QX60.

What's New on the 2019 Acura MDX?

The front seats now have standard four-way power-adjustable lumbar support. Other changes to the interior include available high-contrast stitching and real wood trim.

The new A-Spec version features 20-inch alloy wheels that are wider than other MDX wheels, gloss-black and dark chrome accents, body-colored side sills and larger exhaust tips. Inside, the A-Spec gets sport seats with Alcantara inserts, unique gauges, sport pedals, Alcantara trim, gloss-black accents, A-Spec badges and a thicker-rim steering wheel with shift paddles. 

In addition, the regular MDX can now have the MDX Sport Hybrid's adaptive suspension system and the nine-speed automatic transmission's logic has been revised for smoother acceleration, according to Acura. Fuel-saving stop-start technology is now standard.

What Features in the 2019 Acura MDX Are Most Important?

The MDX's available all-wheel-drive system includes torque-vectoring capability to improve handling. The SUV is also packed with standard active safety features like forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist and adaptive cruise control.

Should I Buy the 2019 Acura MDX?

If you’re looking for a comfortable, quiet and upscale SUV that offers a lot of standard safety features, the Acura MDX may be a good fit. However, if you have a big family and lots of stuff to carry, a larger SUV or minivan might work better.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
