2016 Acura MDX

The 2016 Acura MDX, America’s best-selling luxury 3-row SUV, is here at the dealership! Acura has improved the MDX for the 2016 model year with multiple new features and technologies, including a more advanced powertrain, and an expanded model range. In other words, more MDX in the MDX!

Here are some of the standout improvements and options for 2016:

  1. All 2016 models are equipped with an advanced new 9-speed automatic transmission (66 lbs. lighter than the 6-speed automatic in the previous generation!)
  2. A push-button electronic gear selector
  3. 25% faster gear shifts that improve acceleration
  4. A new Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system with a twin-clutch design (19 lbs. lighter weight than before!)
  5. Torque-vectoring effectiveness has been improved to help elevate responsiveness, agility, and stability.
  6. Available AcuraWatch—Acura’s suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, which includes the first application of Road Departure Mitigation and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
  7. Both the 2016 MDX and MDX with Technology Package models can be equipped with AcuraWatch.
  8. The MDX with Advance Package comes standard with AcuraWatch.
  9. A frameless rearview mirror
  10. Siri Eyes Free voice recognition
  11. Tire Pressure Monitoring System fill assist that sounds an audible alert when the driver inflates the tire to the correct pressure.
  12. Upgrades, depending on trim, that include a Multi-View Angle Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines, a bi-directional remote engine starter, idle stop and head up warning
  13. A total of 16 possible trims (16 trims for the 2016 model year, wink wink!)

There’s a reason this refined and sophisticated 7-passenger SUV has been a best-seller. Both customers and industry professionals alike have sung its praises:

“Everyone who has driven the MDX gave it glowing praise for everything — comfort, space, fuel economy, sportiness…” (Motortrend)

“It’s enjoyable on my way to work and at play with the seats full. It has good work/life balance as they say these days.” (Edmunds.com)

“Acura MDX continues to offer an attractive blend of content, comfort, and entertainment for the entire family – including the driver.” (The Car Connection)

Had fun driving my @acura #MDX around #Beaufort South Carolina this morning. I love this thing 🙂
