The MDX boasts an EPA-estimated 19 city/27 highway mpg** while still remaining one of the most powerful luxury SUVs in the segment. This combination of power and efficiency makes the MDX an attractive option for the environmentally friendly driver.
The MDX is equipped with a state-of-the-art 3.5L V6 engine that pumps out 290 hp, making it one of the most powerful luxury SUVs on the market. Couple this with a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, and the MDX is sure to wow on any trip.
Harness the power of the MDX with the smooth-handling 9-speed automatic transmission. Increased control is at your fingertips with the steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters that allow you to switch gears manually.
The SH-AWD improves your ride on dry roads and stands up to adverse weather conditions that would normally limit power and traction. SH-AWD gives you high-performance cornering by adjusting power and torque to better complement traction and weight distribution.
The MDX’s Vehicle Stability Assist system improves handling by braking each wheel individually in over- or under-steering situations to help you maintain control.
Shape your drive with three settings: Normal, Sport, and Comfort, available through the Integrated Dynamics System. Whether you prefer tight handling or a relaxed ride, the MDX has you covered.
Four exterior cameras give you a 360-degree view of the area around the car and improved safety when navigating out of tight spots.
Light the way to dazzling effect with the MDX’s Jewel Eye LED headlights, brighter and whiter than traditional headlights.
The signature diamond pentagon grille, a new face for Acura, is emblazoned across the front of the MDX, signaling a new era in luxury SUVs.
Hear your entertainment the way it was meant to be with a 10-speaker ELS Studio Premium Audio System available with the Technology Package.
Ample and versatile storage is yours with the MDX’s large cargo area, 50/50 split third-row seatbacks, and a 60/40 split second row. A power liftgate makes loading and unloading a breeze.
Ensure a quiet and enjoyable ride with minimized engine noise as the Active Sound Control system detects the level of engine hum and plays back a reverse phase signal to cancel out the engine sound.
The driver and front and rear passengers can all customize the temperature to their comfort. No need to remember your settings, as the MDX remembers them for you and sets them according to which remote you have nearest the vehicle.
The advanced touchscreen display offers settings for 10 different audio sources, climate control options, and navigation apps all at your fingertips.
Available with the Technology Package, Siri Eyes Free allows you to pair your iPhone to the vehicle and use its voice-recognition features to send texts, check weather, make appointments, and even read e-mails.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) enhances driver and passenger protection by distributing energy from a collision more evenly throughout the vehicle.
Set your speed and don’t fret about repeatedly adjusting it in adverse traffic conditions as the adaptive system automatically adjusts the MDX’s speed to match that of vehicles in front of it.
A radar transmitter mounted behind the front grille detects possible collisions with moving objects and notifies the driver to take action. If a driver doesn’t respond, the seat belts tighten to brace for impact and the brakes are automatically applied.
The intelligent Lane Keeping Assist feature uses a windshield-mounted camera to detect lane markings and much like the RDM, warns the driver if the vehicle is about to leave the lane and automatically takes corrective action if needed.
The Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) system uses a camera to identify painted lane lines, and when it detects the MDX is about to leave the road, it warns the driver. If the driver does not respond, active steering is engaged and the vehicle is automatically guided back to the lane.
This system alerts the driver to any vehicles or pedestrians in the blind spot and gives you an extra set of eyes where you need them most.
