4-Wheel Independent MacPherson Strut Front / Multi-link Rear

2020 Acura MDX Suspension system

Comfort and control were top of mind when Acura developed the MDX suspension system. Both driver and passenger want to be comfortable, but the driver also needs to feel in control.

  • The front MacPherson strut design has been altered to reduce steering wheel vibration and torque steer for front-wheel drive models.
  • To decrease road noise and vibration, the front system uses fluid-filled bushings, while both the front and multi-link rear systems are mounted on separate sub frames.
  • The rear suspension shocks mount directly to the body side rail to improve rigidity. The result is a softer ride without sacrificing handling precision.
  • Amplitude Reactive Dampers feature one internal spring to absorb road irregularities and a second stiffer spring to control larger body movements.
