Acura's latest vehicle to receive the A-Spec styling treatment is the popular three-row MDX crossover SUV, which debuted at the 2018 New York Auto Show.
The luxury family on the outside With a new front end, stronger side skirts, wider exhaust tips and a combination of black and dark chrome trims, the Hauler gets a more aggressive look. The whole package rides on exclusive 20-inch gray aluminum wheels.
For the cabin of the MDX, customers can choose between black or red leather seats with black Alcantara inserts and contrasting accent stitching. Additional A-Spec touches include unique gauges, a thick rim steering wheel with paddle shifters, carbon fiber-patterned console trim, sports pedals, and door sills.
Unfortunately, the A-Spec package is purely cosmetic, which means that the 290 bhp, 267 pound-foot, 3.5-liter V6 engine will be left untouched by regular MDX models.
For safety reasons, the MDX A-Spec comes as standard with the AcuraWatch grouping of Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control technologies.
On the infotainment front, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features are standard.
