A History of Innovation

The Acura MDX, which stands for “Multi-Dimensional luxury,” is a three-row luxury SUV that replaced the body-on-frame SLX. Since its introduction in the fall of 2000, the MDX has redefined the luxury SUV segment, combining performance and handling with a long list of standard luxury features ultra-low emissions and a smooth, sedan-like ride.

The MDX originally came with a 3.5-liter, 24-valve, SOHC engine that produced 240 horsepower and 245 lb-ft of torque. Standard features included an electronically controlled, 5-speed automatic transmission and an innovative VTM-4 four-wheel-drive system that proactively apportioned torque from the front to the rear wheels. The MDX met California’s stringent Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV) standards and received EPA fuel economy ratings of 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway.*


In addition, MDX had a lot of industry firsts that included:

  • First luxury SUV to have standard three-row seating – 2000 MDX
  • First independent front/rear automatic climate control system – 2000 MDX
  • First SUV with Variable Torque Management 4WD system – 2000 MDX
  • First Luxury SUV to have a ULEV emission rating – 2000 MDX
  • First SUV to have a ULEV-II emission rating – 2002 MDX
  • First luxury SUV to receive quadruple Five Star safety rating from the NHTSA – 2002 MDX

The second-generation 2007 MDX was released on October 17, 2006, taking its predecessor’s best qualities and radically expanded them, pushing performance and sophistication in the luxury SUV segment to new levels. Benchmarked against some of the best performance SUVs in the world and tuned on the Nürburgring racetrack in Germany, the new MDX clearly established itself as a driver’s SUV. Outfitted with Acura’s tenacious Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system and an available sport package with Active Damper System, the MDX yielded a combination of handling and comfort that is truly on the cutting edge.

An all-new, third-generation 2014 MDX went on sale June 20, 2013, offering comfort, connectivity and performance at a price that no other luxury brand could match. It was available for the first time with two-wheel drive.

MDX Overview

Long the benchmark among luxury SUVs, the MDX moves the bar even higher. Form and function advance together to create a vehicle that excels in every dimension: its style, performance, safety systems, utility, luxury and technology challenge the best the category has to offer. Developed and refined on Germany’s famously difficult Nürburgring racing circuit, the MDX applies innovation to performance with its direct-injection V-6 engine that delivers thrilling acceleration and received excellent EPA fuel economy ratings.1

As ever, the MDX delivers an uncompromising experience that can be enjoyed by up to seven passengers. The richly appointed cabin offers a hushed and luxurious ambience, along with a level of technological sophistication that has been arranged to keep its occupants engaged and connected.

And the MDX sets the pace in safety engineering, starting with the next-generation ACE™ body structure designed to provide high-level safety in frontal crashes and helps achieve the highest crash-test safety ratings. Standard on every MDX you’ll find a host of AcuraWatch Plus™ technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow2, Forward Collision Warning (FCW)3, Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)4 Lane Departure Warning (LDW)5 and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).6

System designed to mitigate crash forces. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
  5. LDW only alerts drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use. LDW may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
  6. LKAS only assists driver in maintaining proper lane position when lane markings are identified without a turn signal in use and can only apply mild steering torque to assist. LKAS may not detect all lane markings; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.

Completely Accommodating


Cabin Storage

There are four separate storage areas within reach of the driver and passengers with plenty of space for their travel accouterments including a unique center console that features a combination of large and small compartments.

  • The console between the front seats and the available second-row captain’s chairs is topped by an armrest that slides forward and backward for your comfort and opens to reveal a small bin perfect for a phone, pens and other small items.
  • A lower console door has non-skid ribs on its surface to place items you wish to access easily such as a purse or electronic device.
  • The lower door flips up or slides back to provide access to a large storage bin underneath that houses USB7, power and auxiliary jacks as well as an iPod®8-sized pocket.
  • The lower and upper doors can both fold back to provide a large opening to the deep storage bin for loading large items like a large purse or small laptop.
  • Overhead is a drop-down pocket to store sunglasses.
  • The door panels feature additional storage and a space designed for a water bottle.
  • The second-row passengers can access the pockets on the front seatbacks, deep storage pockets in the doors, and a dual cup holder in the center armrest.
  • The third-row passengers each have an outer armrest with a beverage holder and storage


On Demand Multi-Use Display

Leading the way in audio and information technology has its advantages, and its challenges. As the number of features continued to increase, Acura designers foresaw 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.

  • Each of the up to 10 different audio sources in the MDX can be accessed directly.
  • Each display has a design that best arranges controls for the particular task at hand, so every panel can be quickly understood and operated.
  • Every climate control function is instantly accessible with six hard controls as well as nine touch-screen controls with a near-permanent presence at the bottom of the ODMD.
  • A Shortcut button speeds you to your favorite presets among all audio sources, climate control combinations, navigation locations or speed-dial favorites on your phone.
  • All screens can display an instant current status of audio or climate functions while the upper display screen continues undisturbed.
  • There are still hard controls available for most climate control functions, and most audio system functions—including changing audio source or radio preset—can be operated with the steering wheel controls.


Front Seats

Luxury lives within each meticulous detail inside the MDX. Both front seats feature pronounced side bolsters that provide lateral support for cornering and plenty of comfort for long drives.

  • Advanced seat frames and power adjustment features help reduce flex in seat movement, imparting a stable and substantial feel.
  • The driver enjoys a 10-way adjustable power seat, including a power lumbar support.
  • The driver’s Easy Entry feature automatically brings the seat 35mm rearward to ease driver entry. When the door closes, the seat moves into its driver-set memorized position.
  • The front passenger can customize their comfort with an eight-way power adjustable seat.
  • Both front seats offer three levels of heating while the Advance Package adds three levels of ventilation. The ventilation works by drawing air into the seats through perforations in the leather, cooling your body. Six levels of seat climate allow you to reach your desired comfort level more quickly and efficiently.
  • For supreme convenience, the two-driver automatic memory system is designed to record individual preferences for the driver’s seat, steering wheel and side mirror positions as well as other settings.


Rear Entertainment System

Keep boredom at bay on long trips for second- and third-row passengers with an entertainment system that’s available on models with either the Technology or Advance Package.

  • The Entertainment Package features the Acura DVD Rear Entertainment System, which includes a 9-inch screen that is lowered from an overhead console.
  • Models with both the Advance and Entertainment Packages include an extra-wide 16.2-inch screen in the overhead console. The screen can show wide-ratio movies or even accommodate two separate video sources and show both images side by side.
  • Models with both the Technology and Entertainment Packages gain a ceiling-mounted speaker for improved surround sound. The Advance Package adds two ceiling-mounted speakers.
  • In addition to audio that is routed through the sound system speakers, passengers may use wireless Personal Surround headphones or connect through three available audio jacks.
  • An auxiliary input jack and 110-volt outlet are provided for attaching a game console, laptop computer, or other small device. Advance Package models also have an HDMI input for a wider variety of video sources.
  • The system can play the full range of audio content available from the MDX audio system, and in most cases, will operate independently from the front, allowing the rear passengers to enjoy a separate type of programming.
  • An illuminated and removable wireless remote and LCD control screen provides clear and intuitive operation.




Form and function strike an impeccable balance. The re-engineered exterior of the 2017 MDX ushers in a bold new era of expression..

Super Handling All-Wheel Drive

Conquer the curves and weather with available torque-vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™. Power is automatically distributed to the wheels that need it – like to the rear outside wheel while cornering – giving seamless fore, aft and side-to-side power transitions with surgical precision. The result is a continuously active system that helps handle the terrain in ways no other front, rear or conventional all-wheel-drive system can.


Restyled Exterior Design

Aggressive. Distinctive. Captivating. The redesigned exterior of the MDX exposes the fact that it’s a track-honed performance vehicle. Commanding front styling announces the new face of Acura — the bold Diamond Pentagon grille. With the strong lines of a contoured hood, restyled Jewel Eye® headlights and chrome-trimmed twin exhaust pipes, the MDX embodies Precision Crafted Performance.


The Eyes Have It

The Jewel Eye® LED headlights carve out their own space in the MDX profile. Brighter, whiter and longer-lasting than traditional headlights, casting a precisely focused beam far into the future.


Opt for 20-inch Wheels

As aggressive as they are appealing, the optional 20-inch alloy wheels of the MDX were designed to leave a lasting impression from the very first glance.

Remote Engine Start

On models with the Technology Package, the MDX engine can be started remotely so that the engine is warmed up and the cabin is either heated or cooled appropriately by the time you arrive.

  • You can remotely start the engine using the two-way keyless access remote from distances up to 328 feet (100 meters) from the vehicle.
  • The climate control will automatically set to 72 degrees, preparing the MDX interior to be close to your desired temperature setting. In cold temperatures, the defrost will already be working to clear the windshield and even the seat heaters may be activated.
  • Only when the MDX detects the remote inside the car can it be driven away.
  • LED lights on the remote inform the user of the MDX ignition status.
  • Wipers, audio and lighting are disengaged during remote start period, though the security system remains active.


Acura Navigation System w/ HD Digital Traffic

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.

  • The full-resolution, 8-inch screen is mounted high in the center control panel to minimize eye diversion from the road.
  • You can enter an address or search a location from its vast destination database, using the interface dial or the voice recognition system.
  • Option for 3D viewing
  • The screen will plot your path on the map while showing special displays to guide you through freeway ramps, interchanges and forks in the road, and even provide voiced guidance if desired.
  • An additional feature is HD Digital Traffic®, which can help you get around delays while traveling to your desired destination.
  • Lifetime Navigation Traffic Subscription


The HD Digital Traffic® feature helps you steer clear of gridlock by providing continuously updated traffic information in major metropolitan areas across the 48 contiguous United States.

  • Interstates, expressways and now, busy side streets are all color-coded to indicate traffic flow levels.
  • Icons indicate the location of incidents and traffic conditions affected by construction and weather.
  • Traffic Rerouting™ will suggest an alternative route if the system determines that the alternative is at least two minutes or 10% quicker.
  • You can also have the system simply list traffic-impacting collisions and construction zones in your surrounding area.

Blind Spot Information System

The MDX can be equipped with a blind spot information (BSI) system that assists you when making lane changes.

  • If the system detects a vehicle in an adjacent lane in the MDX’s “alert zone” (approximately from the rear half of the MDX to half a car-length back), an indicator will appear on that side’s windshield pillar.
  • The pillar light will flash if the driver activates the turn signal in the direction where a vehicle has been detected.
  • The blind spot indicators only light up when the MDX is traveling above 20 MPH, so they won’t come on when you’re parking, at stop lights, or in stop-and-go traffic.
  • The system also includes a maximum speed difference threshold, so the alert will not activate as you drive past parked cars.


Rear Surround Sounds System

Grammy® award-winning recording engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner helped design this critically acclaimed ELS Studio®32 Premium Audio System to reproduce music as it’s heard in the recording studio. With music sources available over the air, internet or your own digital library, even the most familiar music can become an all-new listening experience. System features include:

  • Operation by the center touch screen, with primary functions operable by steering wheel controls.
  • USB7 Audio Interface for iPod®8 or flash drive that enables full operation of the devices through the audio system controls.
  • Bluetooth®11streaming audio, plus the ability to navigate and operate Aha and Pandora®45 through a compatible smartphone.
  • CD, MP3, WMA6 and DTS-compatible disc player.
  • HD Radio® offering digital sound and up to eight stations for one frequency.
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio4 which has more than 140 channels of digital programming and near-CD quality sound.
  • AM/FM with RDS readout.
  • An auxiliary input jack plays content from personal music players that are incompatible with the USB jack.
  • 10 speakers—1 per door, 2 tweeters, 1 center mid-range, 2 rear-seat surround, 1 powered 8-inch subwoofer. The Entertainment Pack adds a ceiling-mounted speaker to enhance rear seat surround sound, while the Advance Package adds two.
  • Almost all functions can be performed by voice recognition.
