The MDX disc brakes are backed up by several sophisticated electronic systems to provide you with enhanced braking abilities under almost any circumstance.
The Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) system uses an array of sensors, along with ABS, and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), to reduce the dangers of oversteer or understeer.12
Since an under-inflated tire impedes handling and can be a safety hazard, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) uses pressure sensors mounted in each wheel that send readings to a central electronic control unit. The system then evaluates whether the pressure is in an acceptable range.
To help reduce the likelihood of a frontal impact, the Advance Package includes the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™).
The MDX is equipped with a sophisticated six-airbag system, which includes two front airbags, two front-side airbags, and two side curtain airbags that provide coverage for all three rows of outboard seats. The systems are designed so that the airbags can deploy at the right time with the appropriate force.
All seven seating positions in the MDX have 3-point belts and head restraints. The front seats have load-limiting tensioners and active head restraints.
The MDX has several features addressing child safety, from sophisticated airbag sensors to anchors that secure child seats.
Acura utilizes Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure to enhance occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes.
Like every Acura model, the MDX comes equipped with a security system. In the event of a break-in, the following events will occur:
