Why the MDX Should Be Your Next SUV

Your family deserves the best, so why settle for anything less than the bestselling luxury three-row SUV of all time? The Acura MDX is a sleek, functional SUV that doesn’t compromise. It offers families the flexibility and space they need with a sophisticated look that every driver loves.

Still not convinced? Here are some more reasons the MDX should be your next SUV.

Quiet, High-Quality Interior

When you’re shopping for a family SUV, you want it to be as comfortable and stylish as it is functional. With the MDX, you get the best of both worlds.

The 2017 MDX offers optional second-row captain’s chairs, upgraded wood and leather trim, and a usable third row. The SUV boasts a smooth ride both on and off the road. Even at 75 miles per hour, it offers little to no wind noise, ensuring this is one vehicle that will lull the kids to sleep on those long road trips.

The MDX offers single-press buttons to slide the second-row seats forward for easy third-row access. The third row is tight for adults, but more spacious for kids than most SUVs in this class. Both the front- and second-row seats offer enough head and leg space for even the tallest adults.


Acura doesn’t skimp when it comes to offering state-of-the-art technology, and the MDX is no exception. The 2017 model boasts smart device integration and a slew of advanced safety aids, helping you stay safe and connected during every ride.

Enjoy a straightforward navigation system with easy pan and zoom functions, a 10-speaker sound system, and impressive sound quality. While the MDX doesn’t offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility, it does feature responsible smartphone integration with standard Siri Eyes Free, allowing you to respond to texts without taking your eyes off the road or your hands off the steering wheel.

Other great features on the 2017 MDX include adaptive cruise control, AcuraLink, a surround-view camera, and voice recognition.

Confident Performance

Despite being a family vehicle at heart, the Acura MDX is a powerful, assertive SUV that doesn’t back down. It features a 3.5-liter V6 engine rated at 290 horsepower and optional Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive for confident performance. Best of all, acceleration is quick and smooth, allowing the MDX to hold its own in highway traffic.

The MDX whips around corners with ease thanks to its torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system, which might be surprising given the vehicle’s size. It’s even designed to handle well in inclement weather with off-road-type considerations.

The 2017 MDX offers up to 19 miles per gallon in the city and 27 mpg on the highway*. Its towing capacity tops out at 3,500 pounds, which is more than enough for those family RV vacations. Considering you can get all this at a modest starting price, why would you settle for anything else?

The Acura MDX stands in a class all its own among family SUVs. See for yourself why it’s remained the bestselling third-row vehicle by taking it for a test drive at Mile High Acura.
