    New 2020 MDX PMC Edition to debut at Los Angeles Auto Show ahead of launch early next year





Acura will put performance center stage at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show with a celebration of its dominant 2019 IMSA racing season, including a gathering of championship racers from Acura Team Penske and Meyer Shank Racing, and a display that will include examples of the championship-winning ARX-05 Daytona Prototype and NSX GT3 Evo and race cars.



The show will also mark the debut of the new 2020 MDX PMC Edition, the second model in Acura's lineup to get the handcrafted "PMC Treatment" at the company's Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Ohio. Other highlights of the Acura performance story include displays of the 2020 NSX in Indy Yellow Pearl and the stunning Acura Type S Concept, which sets the stage for the return of Acura Type S performance variants to the Acura line-up after a decade hiatus.



"It takes a lot of determination, passion and engineering excellence to earn the kind of racing success that Acura has realized this past season, and the L.A. Auto Show is a great venue to showcase Acura performance on the track and on the street," said Jon Ikeda, Vice President and Acura Brand Officer. "We've got Acura's next MDX PMC edition, the return of Type S and a whole lot more Precision Crafted Performance highlights coming in the year ahead, so this will be a really big auto show season for Acura."
