Acura MDX Performance
The 2017 Acura MDX offers a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 290 horsepower and is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission that provides quick and smooth gear shifts. The SUV is EPA-estimated to achieve a fuel efficiency rating of 20 city/27 highway MPG, making it one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in the segment.1
The MDX comes standard with front-wheel drive, or you can upgrade to all-wheel drive for improved road grip and handling, which is especially helpful on icy and snowy winter road conditions. The MDX offers sharp steering and a well-tuned suspension that creates a comfortable ride quality. Overall, the SUV feels smaller to drive than it actually is, which makes it easy to maneuver in tight spaces.
Depending upon whether you opt for a second-row bench seat or captain’s chairs, you’ll have seating for six to seven people in the 2017 MDX. The 2017 Acura MDX comes with standard leather upholstery, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and an 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, as well as heated front seats to keep you cozy. By utilizing the power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, you can find an ideal driving position, and the second-row seats slide and recline for passenger comfort, which is great on a long road trip.
Cargo & Passenger Space
With all three rows of seats in place, you’ll have 14.9 cubic feet of cargo capacity in the MDX. Fold down the third row and you’ll have 38.4 cubic feet of space, or fold down the second and third rows and you’ll have a total of 68.4 cubic feet for your cargo. A power liftgate is standard. The front-row seats offer 38.1 inches of headroom and 41.4 inches of legroom. In the back seat, passengers will have 38.3 inches of headroom and 36.6 inches of legroom.
The MDX offers not just one, but two separate infotainment screens, measuring seven and eight inches. One of them is a touchscreen, and you’ll have standard satellite radio, Bluetooth®, and USB ports to keep your ride well-connected. For 2017, the AcuraWatch™ suite of driver-assisting safety features come standard, including systems such as Active Lane-Keep Assist, Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
