Acura recently gave their all-star model a midcycle refresh where they added little touch-ups to the current MDX model. However, the engineers in charge must know the old adage, “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it,“ because not much changed on this exquisite SUV. Acura added automatic high-beam headlights, a new grille on the face of the car and updated the parking brake. But with or without these added features the MDX is a smart, sophisticated SUV that offers a plush driving experience without excess frills. Here are our top three reasons to buy an Acura MDX.
- Three Rows of Seating
For families on the go, the extra seats in the back are essential. But just because something is utilitarian doesn’t mean it can’t also be luxurious. The Acura MDX boasts comfortable bench or bucket seats in the second row, which, either way, can move forward to provide a cozy yet comfortable third row. The rear seats have their own intuitive button-operated climate control, so comfort is always within easy reach no matter where you sit.
- Features Galore
From the safety tech to the available panoramic sunroof, the MDX provides a premium driving experience. Acura took the time to curate an interior that turns your commute into a time you cherish. With available heated and cooled seats, dual climate zones, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, and road departure mitigation. You’re in good hands with the Acura MDX.
- Super Handling All-Wheel Drive
The MDX handles like a dream thanks to Acura’s superb Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). It incorporates a torque-vectoring rear differential, which gives the MDX surprising athleticism. Even on tight turns, the MDX powers through corners and the differential doles out torque to the appropriate wheels to counter understeer and keep you moving smoothly.
