Acura MDX


#Acura’s mid-size luxury SUV, the MDX Crossover, is in its third generation and continues to grow in popularity.  There are so many features to the MDX Crossover that this is the first, of two parts, describing them. Understanding the MDX Crossover’s many features helps to understand the reasons it is one of Acura’s most popular models.


First, how does the MDX Crossover ride?  It rides on a light-truck chassis and features front and rear lightweight subframes. The MDX is powered by a 3.5L V6, it generates 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. It comes linked to an all-new 9-speed automatic transmission, using a push-button gear selection as well as steering-wheel-mounted paddles. Power is sent to the wheels by Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. Prospective buyers can save money if they choose front-wheel drive (by forgoing sending power to all four wheels).


Second, how is the MDX equipped?  Short answer, it is equipped extremely well.  The MDX has LED headlights (“Jewel Eye”), speed-sensitive windshield wipers, seating for seven passengers, a multi-view rear camera, power tailgate, leather seating with heated front seats and tri-zone climate control.  The MDX’s touchscreen, the On-Demand Multi-Use Display, incorporates information, entertainment and climate controls in one easy-to-navigate place. Lastly, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity with email and SMS functionality and an 8-speaker audio system with USB and iPod interface are all part of the standard features list.
