The 2018 Acura MDX is a three-row luxury crossover that combines the refinement and sophistication of a luxury vehicle with the safety features buyers demand in a family vehicle. While this SUV is priced less than competing vehicles, Henderson Acura shoppers are pleased when they get behind the wheel of a new MDX Sport and compare it with its more expensive competitors. The MDX is fun to drive, with ample power for accelerating on freeway on-ramps and passing slow-moving vehicles. Nothing beats Acura’s optional Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system to provide nimble handling for driving on winding roads. The 2018 Acura MDX Sport has a spacious cabin and gets excellent fuel economy, too. After last year’s redesign, the 2018 MDX Sport gets a new infotainment system with user-friendly menus and an updated interface with a faster response time. This system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There are also two new red exterior paint colors: Basque Red Pearl II and bright San Marino Red.
