The 2017 Acura MDX is a luxury SUV that deserves every accolade it has received, including the title of Best 3-Row Luxury SUV for the Money by U.S. News and World Report. It’s also been named one of the best cars for families, lauded for its powerful engine, incredible fuel economy, and nimble handling.
Drivers who want to feel the horsepower will love the standard V6 engine with nine speed automatic transmission, which not only provides plenty of power but the best fuel economy in its class (19/27 mpg city/highway). You’ll enjoy the brisk acceleration of 290 horsepower as well as adjustable steering responsiveness standard on all models.
The vehicle’s interior boasts high quality materials, plenty of legroom, and foldable second and third row seats for vast cargo space. It’s also packed with comfort and convenience features, including three zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, USB and auxiliary inputs for easy access to streaming media, satellite radio, an infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, proximity key and push-button start. If you want to truly customize your MDX, additional options include remote start, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, GPS-linked climate control that adjusts the car’s temperature based on the weather in your location, integrated navigation, and a 12-speaker ELS audio system.
Safety is paramount when you’re shopping for a vehicle, and the Acura MDX doesn’t disappoint in this regard. All models come standard with a rearview camera, with optional advanced safety technology like lane departure warning, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning with automatic braking. And it’s not just about technology. The Acura MDX received a five star crash test safety rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration as well as the highest rating in all categories from the Insurance Institute on Highway Safety.
