Luxury Crossover: The 2016 Acura MDX Offers Convenience and Performance

Starting at $43,015, the 2016 Acura MDX provides families with a luxurious way to travel. If you need to comfortably seat seven but are unwilling to drive a minivan, the MDX is the solution to all of your seating challenges. It has outperformed and outsold many of the competition and earned its place as the go-to solution in the near-luxury market. When it comes to versatility, you cannot beat the MDX. It can even tow up to 3,500 pounds, making it possible to bring your small trailer with you.

Compared to the 2015 Acura MDX, this years’ model comes outfitted with a new ZF 9-speed transmission. This makes it half a second quicker and while that may not sound like a lot, it does feel slightly zipper when driving. This years’ model also sees an added 1 mpg thanks to an idle stop system that turns off the engine when stopped at a light. The praised AcuraWatch is also standard in all versions as well.

Car and Driver gave the MDX rave reviews for how much fun it was to drive and how well it handles. Since the MDX comes equipped with a V6 engine and 290 horsepower, you can get where you need to go and quickly. It also comes with a nine-speed automatic for easier shifting control.

This cross-over SUV also receives high praise for how quiet it is and braking and handling that is far above average. Plus if you want to further enhance the performance, you can order your model with the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive that senses which wheels need the most power and directs it there.

Why We Love Driving the 2016 MDX

This crossover truly has room for seven. When it comes to interior space, some crossovers do not have enough leg room to make the third row fully functional. The MDX does and even adults can feel comfortable here. The third row has two seats and the second has three, one of which folds down to access to rear. With sumptuous leather seats and tri-zone climate control, all will be comfortable and enjoy a smooth ride.
