Acura has announced pricing for the 2019 MDX and, as we expected, it remains awfully close to last year's model. When the MDX goes on sale in August, it will be $100 more than the old variant with a starting price tag of $45,295, which includes destination. The MDX Sport Hybrid hasn't been priced yet.

Another piece of major news for the 2019 Acura MDX is the addition of the A-Spec model that we first saw back at the 2018 New York Auto Show. The package is essentially an appearance bundle that makes the MDX look sportier. The MDX A-Spec comes with a bespoke front fascia, 20-inch alloy wheels, larger exhaust outlets, a rear tailgate spoiler, as well as gloss-black and dark chrome trim. That model is sold exclusively with Acura's torque-vectoring Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive System and is priced at $55,795.

Other changes are a little sporadic and include the ability to add Acura's Active Damper System (ADS) to the regular MDX, which was previously only available on the MDX Sport Hybrid, an upgraded Idle Stop feature that's standard on the entire lineup, new paint schemes, new wheel designs, and updated interior trim options.

Lastly, every MDX trim comes with the automaker's suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive features, which is called AcuraWatch. The suite includes automatic emergency braking with forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist.

Compared to other competitors in the mid-size SUV segment, the MDX continues to sit in the middle of the pack when it comes to pricing. The MDX is cheaper than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, Volvo XC90 Momentum, Audi Q7 Premium, and BMW X5 sDrive35i. The Infiniti QX60, Lexus RX 350, and Cadillac XT5 are more affordable than the 2019 MDX.
