There is no shortage of options these days when it comes to SUVs. That said, the all-wheel drive 2018 Acura MDX available in Richmond at Richmond Acura is a clear break from the pack. Boasting a fusion of premium looks, technology, comfort and handling, this three-row SUV is much more than a utility vehicle. With the 2018 Acura MDX, the company doubles down on its Precision Crafted Performance promise!
At A Glance
The MDX's striking first impression comes courtesy of its diamond pentagon grille. It's bold yet intricate and it oozes luxury. Featuring racetrack-inspired styling cues, this vehicle makes a further statement with its exposed chrome dual exhaust and door handles, just in case there was any doubt in your mind.
Inside the 2018 Acura MDX awaits a collection of creature comforts that delight the senses. It seats up to seven comfortably in a spacious and refined interior featuring natural wood accents, sporty yet luxurious sculpted seating on soft milano leather and individualized climate control for occupants of the first two rows. Don't need seating for seven? Rows two and three fold down flat in a variety of configurations to create a tremendous amount of cargo space; or opt for the Elite 6-passenger model package that allows you to upgrade from bench seating in the second row to a pair of comfy heated captain’s chairs (with a centre console between). While inside, utilize the On-Demand Multi-Use Display touchscreen to control audio and climate, as well as Apple CarPlay or Android Auto for your personal technological needs. Push-button start, power tailgate, heated seats and remote start round out the convenience features that come standard on all models.
Under the Hood
The 2018 Acura MDX boasts 290 horses thanks to its 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine outputting 267 lb-ft of torque, giving it plenty of power. As with any high-performance vehicle, you'll enjoy reactive handling and enhanced control, as well as a smooth ride thanks to independent front and multi-link rear suspension. For a three-row SUV, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how well it handles and how it drives like a much smaller vehicle. Whether commuting or simply driving along the coast, it offers a gorgeous ride. A 9-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle-shifters and Grade Logic Control provides the choice of automatic precise and intuitive control, or driver-controlled shifting. Fuel economy city/highway/combined stands at 12.6/9.0/11L/100 km.
This luxurious SUV is loaded with lots of advanced safety features in its Driver Assist collection, including emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist and road departure mitigation among others. Rounding out the safety package are Jewel Eye headlights & (available) fog lamps which utilize the power of LED lighting and highly reflective optical lenses for safer driving. It comes standard with 18-inch wheels, but the available upgrade to 20-inch wheels takes this luxurious SUV up a notch.
