2018 Acura MDX: Luxury SUV Interior
Like all Acura cars, the 2018 MDX has been designed with your comfort in mind. You’ll feel like you’re in the lap of luxury from the moment you sit down.
Drivers of the MDX will have a 10-way power adjustable seat with powered lumbar support and easy entry. For your comfort on those chilly mornings, your leather seat even comes with heating to help keep the cold at bay.
As an intuitive SUV, the MDX includes a few different memory functions to keep things convenient. Namely, your SUV can remember the positions of your seating, mirrors, climate controls, and more.
Of course, the MDX is a 7-passenger car, so rear occupants will need their own set of comforts. Fortunately, they’ll have convenient features like Third-Row Access One-Touch Smart Slide Walk-In. This ought to keep the back of the car as roomy and accessible as the front.
Acura MDX Specs
When it comes to balancing power and efficiency, this Acura SUV aims high. Its standard 3.5L V6 engine comes with a number of enhancements to boost power and fuel economy, including Variable Cylinder Management and a Drive-by-Wire™ throttle.
With all these optimizations on your side, the MDX can generate up to 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. That ought to be enough to haul up to 5,000 pounds of cargo.
A 9-speed automatic transmission is also included in the MDX. With Sequential SportShift and paddle shifters, you can maintain an EPA-estimated 26 highway MPG and 18 city MPG.1
Acura MDX Safety
When it comes to passenger protection, the Acura MDX employs a lot of technology. First off, it has the available SH-AWD® system to improve handling, no matter what the road conditions may be.
While your AWD system is effective on its own, features like Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering greatly round it out.
From there, you’ll have a number of different smart safety features to make use of. These include:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
- Lane Keeping Assist System
While these features all have a different purpose, they function in the same manner. Using sensors and small cameras, they monitor the road around you to determine when accidents are about to occur and help prevent them from happening.
