Among luxury crossovers, the Acura MDX is a standout in nearly every possible way—and it stands as quite a counterpoint to the brand’s sedans, which can’t seem to find traction with mainstream buyers.
While this model is already one of the best-driving models in its class, the 2017 Acura MDX has been given ride and handling improvements, more standard active-safety features, and a new Sport Hybrid variant that delivers better performance and higher fuel economy numbers.
The 2017 MDX wears a better-looking nose than in years past, a version of the diamond pentagon grille previewed the Precision concept from the 2016 Detroit auto show. In addition to that, it gets newly sculpted front fenders, a new hood, and LED fog lamps with restyled jewel-eye headlights. Chrome rocker panels, some additional lower-body trim, and a twin-tailpipe design in back help keep the look sporty.
Inside, the front-end theme is echoed by the dash, with its V-shaped center stack and sloping, tiered design. The dash design complements the rest of the cabin, and the materials used for interior trim are nicely coordinated.
The all-wheel-drive system in the MDX is unique in its class: it's a mechanical torque vectoring system, which can move power front-to-back, and side-to-side. It may not sound significant, but it's one of the few systems on the market and it greatly improves drivability and capability in the MDX.
There are two different packages offered for the 2017 Acura MDX. Both come with new shocks as well as an Integrated Dynamics System, which offers Comfort, Normal, and Sport settings, as well as a Sport+ performance mode. The Sport setting quickens steering response, while the Comfort settings results in lighter steering feel. On all-wheel-drive models, the system more aggressively distributes power to the outside wheels in a curve.
The big crossover SUV can seat up to seven passengers, and it's positively stuffed with convenience features that make it easy for everyday transportation of large families and a lot of their belongings. The cabin is highly functional and one of the roomiest three-row crossovers in its class. The front seats are supportive yet plush, while low side bolsters make getting in and out easier. The driver's seat on MDX models slides rearward whenever the door is opened, making getting in and out easier.
