Costs embrace $995 vacation spot cost in the United States and $2,206 for freight, PDI, and A/C tax in Canada and, due to cross-border gear variations, can’t be instantly in contrast.

Think about a world through which The Quick And The Livid film by no means had a sequel, not to mention eight. Dom Toretto and the workforce didn’t hold being criminals or preventing crime — they only settled down in Southern California and had households.

On this imaginary offshoot of an imaginary world, there’s one query that must be answered: What would Brian O’Conner drive? He and Mia definitely have a pack of towheaded youngsters that require shuttling to daycare and soccer.

I think your reply is true right here: a 3-row crossover with some tuner highlights, together with a pair of large exhaust ideas and large, blacked-out alloy wheels. The 2019 Acura MDX A-Spec is ideal for cruising the strip on Friday night time, adopted by a Saturday of dance recitals and antiquing.

2019 Acura MDX A-Spec profile

Notice I stated nothing about efficiency. The A-Spec package deal is all about fashion, not substance. However lots of the Quick and/or Livid automobiles have been all present, no go — or no cease, in the case of Jesse’s Jetta sans brake calipers. It’s about wanting good and having enjoyable with buddies, which is equally the recreation plan with the seven-seat MDX A-Spec.

2019 Acura MDX A-Spec interior

The Apex Blue Pearl end on this huge crossover is a welcome change from the normal luxurious car palette of white, black, gray, grey, greige, beige, and greyish grey. The colour is unique to the A-Spec trim, and appears sensible towards the darkish gray 20-inch alloy wheels.

The brand new decrease grille appears aggressive with out being over the prime. Paired with the massive company Acura pentagonal grille — kinda resembling a superhero defend, maybe — the MDX A-Spec is each hanging and refreshing. The lighting projectors (5 rectangular “eyes” in every headlamp, paired with a visit of decrease fog rectangles in the backside corners) are a bit jarring at first, however they fade into the background in comparison with that robust “face” of the grille.

2019 Acura MDX A-Spec steering wheel control

This vehicle has the best-ever steering wheel audio management — all main features might be managed with one button/wheel at the tip of the driver’s left thumb. Spin to regulate quantity, toggle left or proper to vary tracks or radio presets, and press to mute. It’s easy and intuitive; audio controls executed proper.

2019 Acura MDX A-Spec dashboard

That’s good, as a result of the sprint audio controls aren’t the best. I’m not in love with the twin display setup, although a official quantity knob is an enchancment from different Honda/Acura methods I’ve used. The press/spin/tilt wheel lifeless middle under the decrease display is usually sluggish to answer inputs.

2019 Acura MDX A-Spec front seats 2019 Acura MDX A-Spec second row 2019 Acura MDX A-Spec third row

The seats on this MDX A-Spec are magnificent. Apart from adjusting simply to suit me, I recognize that the majority of the seating floor is Alcantara, relatively than slippery leather-based. This Alcantara materials feels extra like a low-nap velour than a typical suede substitute, which I recognize. Too few premium automobiles have something however leather-based (or leather-based-like) seating surfaces — I respect a superb premium material choice.

2019 Acura MDX A-Spec cargo area

Each the second and third rows are spacious and cozy. Whereas I’d be sad in the third row, I’m a six-foot-4-inch, 260 pound management freak. I’m sad anyplace and not using a steering wheel. The youngsters had no complaints in the wayback, and there was loads of cargo area even behind that third row. This can be a uncommon three-row crossover that may deal with baggage and passengers at the similar time. I haven’t accomplished the Beer Tetris, however my tough math says 33 instances of Corona can match behind the third row. In all probability room for limes, too.

It’s the car for the Quick and Livid character who settled down, had three youngsters, however nonetheless must characterize in the previous neighborhood. Whereas I’d definitely respect extra of a efficiency edge on this Acura MDX A-Spec, it drives nicely sufficient even in base trim to be an satisfying household hauler.
