It looks like the new A-Spec hi-performance version is just here to make this great crossover more competitive, while the real deal is actually coming in about two years. According to the latest reports, the 2020 Acura MDX will come completely new. The redesign of this mid-size crossover is about to happen in about two years and we definitely have big expectations. This crossover is definitely one of the best models in the class if we consider the balance between price and quality. You will hardly find a model that offers more value for the money. So, the upcoming redesign could make things even better, with some new design solutions, more efficient powertrain etc.
At the moment, it is hard to speculate about the 2020 Acura MDX’s styling, considering the fact that the current model completely follows the brand’s newest design language. Still, we can presume that the new generation will take some inspiration from the NSX in terms of front-end layout. So, that should be the direction where new styling philosophy is going. On the other side, it seems pretty certain that the 2020 Acura MDX is about to get a new architecture. This crossover has always been closely related to the legendary Pilot and we have no doubt that the same thing will be in the future. Expect a lot of new design solutions, including new materials and chassis components that will provide better driving dynamics and overall ride quality.
The interior design is definitely one of the aspects where we expect to see a lot of improvements. The current version lacks in terms of cargo space compared to models like Lexus RX and Volvo XC90. Also, the XC90 seems more upscale in terms of materials quality. So, we could presume which areas will be on the focus for the 2020 Acura MDX. Expect more practical cabin, as well as higher-quality materials. Other than that, a new dashboard design with the latest tech features seems certain as well.
Smooth ride, good acceleration, amazing handling, and fuel economy have been the strong points so far. We expect the same from the next-generation model. In the current generation, base models are equipped with a familiar 3.5-liter V6 engine. This one has a max output of 290 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. On the other side, an optional hybrid version adds three electric motors, which provides more power (321 hp), as well as higher mpg ratings. For the next-generation model, the company could include one more engine in the offer. It could be a turbocharged inline-four unit, which will definitely make this crossover attractive to a wider range of potential customers.
2020 Acura MDX Release Date and Price
Latest reports suggest that the new model will come in about two years. When it comes to the price, we don’t expect bigger changes compared to the current model. So, base 2020 Acura MDX versions will probably go around $45,000.
