  • Jewel Eye® LED Headlights
    Standard Feature

  • Sport Hybrid SH-AWD
    Available Feature

    The Sport Hybrid drivetrain combines a 3.0-liter V-6 engine with one front motor and two rear motors which combine to produce 321 horsepower66 while achieving EPA Fuel Economy Ratings27 of 26 / 27 / 27 MPG (city /highway/combined). In addition, each rear motor operates independently to help the MDX rotate through turns resulting in handling unheard of in a 3-row luxury SUV.

  • Super Handling All-Wheel Drive
    Available Feature

    Acura has handling and cornering down to a science with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). This sophisticated system is designed to enhance high-performance dry-road handling while providing the same all-weather advantages of conventional all-wheel drive. By continuously directing engine power to match weight distribution, available traction, and other conditions, SH-AWD provides seamless power transitions and supreme agility. The feel of such enhanced high-performance cornering is one that simply can't be matched by front, rear or conventional all-wheel drive systems.

  • Navigation
    Technology Package and Advance Package

    Enhance your sense of direction with the Acura Navigation System10. The centerpiece of the Technology Package, it uses a hard drive for quick data access and displays on a full VGA 8-inch screen. The system is fast, easy to read and incredibly convenient.

  • On Demand Multi-Use Display
    Standard Feature

    Leading the way in audio and information technology has its advantages, and its challenges. As the number of features continued to increase, Acura designers were looking at a very crowded center panel. So they designed an intuitive touch screen called On-Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) to house all the controls you need at any given time. As a result, what could have been more than 41 buttons has been simplified to nine.

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
    Standard Feature

    The Bluetooth®11 HandsFreeLink® system works with many Bluetooth®-enabled cell phones to let you receive and initiate phone calls through the MDX audio system without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
    Standard Feature

    Setting the cruise control during your urban commute? Acura technology makes it possible. As with a conventional system, the available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow53 system allows you to set a desired speed, but it will also maintain a set space from the car ahead of you so you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic conditions.

  • Lane Keeping Assist System
    Standard Feature

    The Lane Keeping Assist system (LKAS)59 uses a camera that identifies lane divisions and works proactively to keep the vehicle within a detected lane.
