The 2017 Acura MDX now includes many new features and technologies, such as the AcuraWatch suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. These are now offered as standard equipment on all 2017 MDX models, a first in the luxury SUV segment.

2017 Acura MDX A Great SUV

Monday, November 28th, 2016

Acura 2

In the market for a new SUV? It’s always a good idea to see what others think of a model you may be considering. The new 2017 Acura MDX offers drivers an upscale SUV with quality design, an emphasis on safety—all in a sleek package.

 

What do drivers love about the MDX? Just listen to those who have been behind the wheel. Customers who have test-driven it have been wowed by the driving dynamics, exterior styling and safety, as well as its interior design.

 

And experts agree. Professional reviews have praised the updated grille design which flanks LED headlights and now includes automatic high-beam operation. The new face is striking. And the new aluminum wheel designs give the MDX more character.

 

Safety was certainly part of the well-thought design. Adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist and a road-departure mitigation system  are designed to keep the SUV on the road.

 

Acura MDX

 

Inside the SUV, there are four different shades of leather now offered standard in the MDX. The new Espresso interior color offers something different to the usual black, grey and tan offering. It provides a very classic and upscale look. What’s more is the fact that second-row captain’s chairs now come standard.

 

Deep front seat cushions hug passengers, making longer drives very comfortable. Some reviewers noted that as passengers on longer trips, they even fell asleep while en route. That’s a comfortable ride!

 

Want to know what all the fuss is about? Experience the MDX for yourself. Stop in #CardinaleWayAcuraLV, right near all the action of Las Vegas. You can test drive it, get a feel for all the quality features and exceptional driving dynamics.

Comparing SUVs: The Acura MDX vs. the Honda Pilot

Monday, November 21st, 2016

Acura MDX

Considering a new SUV, but overwhelmed by all the research? Let us help. If you’re like most of us, you spend a lot of time in your car and which car you choose is an important one. We want you to make the best choice for you and your family’s needs.

 

There are a lot of SUVs on the market with many options. However, they’re not all the same. And it can be time-consuming to research each one of them. At CardinaleWay Acura in Las Vegas, we realize your time is valuable. That’s why we’ve decided to take two popular models and put them up for comparison. You may have already considered both the Acura MDX and Honda Pilot, but we’d like to outline their differences–which will guide buyers to the best car for their lifestyle.

 

Space is important. Both SUVs offer 3-row seating for up to 8 people, making them great choices for families or those who need a little extra cargo room.

 

Solid performance allows you to drive with confidence and can even make the drive enjoyable. While both models have composed steering, the MDX’s Sport mode gives you better steering accuracy. It an added edge that can make a big difference in daily commutes.

 

Acura MDX 1

 

And there is no compromising on safety. While both the Pilot and MDX have Five-Star safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the MDX earned a higher front crash test score. What’s more? AcuraWatch comes standard in the Acura MDX. This includes collision warning, active lane keep assist and automatic emergency braking. With the Pilot, these options don’t come standard.

 

Why should you have to upgrade to get all the options you need? If safety and performance are important to you, then the #MDX is the SUV for you.

 

The only one bit of research we can’t do for you–test drive it for you. But that’s the fun part. Visit #CardinaleWayAcura in Las Vegas to take it for a spin. Let our knowledgeable sales team help you with your buying needs. While our friendly finance department can have you driving home with your new car in no time. Go to www.CardinaleWayAcura.com to see our current inventory. We look forward to helping you find your perfect car!

* Government star ratings are part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) New Car Assessment program (www.safercar.gov). Models tested with standard side-impact airbags (SABs).

History of Acura – Part III

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Legend

Honda’s luxury division, Acura, made big splashes in the North American automotive market when it was first launched and up till the mid-90s. Launched in 1986, Acura’s forst two models – the Legend and the Integra – did extremely well, making Acura the top selling import luxury brand in the US. Later, it’s sports car, NSX, as well as the Vigor sedan enjoyed success in the US markets as well. However, by the mid-1990s, sales started to dip due to competition from other import luxury brands such as Toyota’s Lexus and Nissan’s Infiniti.

Still, Acura continued to be popular for offering luxury, performance as well as reliability. In 1998, Acura launched a redesigned TL model which helped improve sales due to its popularity. In the 2000s, Acura released a whole new range of vehicles, such as the 3.2 TL and the MDX, its first luxury SUV. The MDX was built on Honda’s global platform which was shared by the Honda Odyssey and Pilot, and it won awards from the likes of ‘Car and Driver’ and ‘Motor Trend’. In 2001, the 2002 RSX sports coupé was introduced. That year, Acura sold a record 170,469 vehicles in the US.

2004 saw the third-generation TL and an all-new TSX. The Acura RL was also redesigned and received much-needed technological and engineering upgrades. Acura’s AWD system featuring the super-handling technology helped their vehicles gain a lot of praise. Today, Acura’s lineup consists of the MDX, RDX, RL, TL, TSX, and ZDX. The Acura ILX is expected soon and a refreshed NSX is also in the works.

acura-future-vehicles-mdx-exterior-side-white-city

All the buzz surrounding Acura as of late has been because of the all-new NSX hybrid supercar. Now some of the buzz is being shifted to the 2017 Acura MDX crossover that was revealed at the New York International Auto Show. Even though the hype around the NSX is very apparent, the MDX is an important vehicle to the automaker. Last year, the MDX accounted for one-third of the automaker’s total sales in the U.S. market and it was the second best-selling vehicle within the midsize luxury SUV segment, which happens to be one of the most competitive segments in the market. This will be the first redesign of the third-generation MDX since 2013. Modifications include a new front end with a diamond pentagon front grille, clamshell hood, sculpted body, and jewel-eye headlights. Acura has enhanced the powertrains as well. The Acura MDX Sport Hybrid model, in particular, has been fitted with a 3.0-liter V-6 engine linked to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission to deliver 325 horsepower. Additionally, the model will have a fuel economy of 26 mpg combined. CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas expects for the 2017 Acura MDX to go on sale this summer.
