Whether we’re building a supercar or an SUV, our approach has always been the same: put the driver first. Always. We believe the driver is the single most important element of any vehicle, and it’s why we’ve gathered designers and dreamers, optimists and engineers, to push the limits of technology and enhance the relationship between driver and machine, building vehicles with uncompromising performance—experience-boosting, safety-minded, driver-first performance. It’s what Precision Crafted Performance is all about. It’s who we are, who we’ve always been, and who we’ll continue to be. So when we set out to build the MDX, we built it the only way we know how.


Whatever your budget and your needs, you’ll find there’s an Acura MDX Package that will fit the bill—and then some!

From the beginning, it’s been our goal to create performance vehicles with an unrivaled level of precision. Every detail is meticulously crafted down to where the tire meets the road, and it’s all with the single-minded goal of designing the world’s most cutting-edge, experience-boosting, driver-first performance vehicles.



Commanding front styling announces the face of Acura— the bold Diamond Pentagon grille. Strong lines are accentuated by front all-LED lighting, which provides a sleek and sophisticated design detail as well as helping to increase safety. Along with an exposed dual-exhaust and available attention-grabbing 20″ alloy wheels, the striking exterior of the MDX announces Precision Crafted Performance.


The cabin of the MDX is shaped by intelligent design, refined style, and human-centred technology. Drivers and passengers will be welcomed on board by soft leather-trimmed seating, available chic contrast stitching and seat piping, natural handcrafted wood accents, along with ample legroom, and advanced noise reduction. The result is a spacious, elegant and comfortable environment for a pleasant trip.


The 2018 MDX is loaded with features that deliver performance engineered around you, offering superior command of whatever path you’re on.


Forward Facing

The striking Diamond Pentagon grille and commanding front styling announces the bold face of Acura.

Cabin Comforts

Sculpted seats with chic piping and contrast stitching strike a sporty yet undeniably luxurious tone.


Stunning dual exhaust pipes embody the spirit of Precision Crafted Performance. Each is outlined in chrome for a lasting statement.

Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™

Keep your music, messages, maps, and other useful smartphone apps close at hand on the vehicle display with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

LED headlights

Jewel Eye™ LED headlights and available LED fog lights utilize high-intensity LED lamps and ultra-reflective optical lenses to provide brighter, whiter and more powerful, down-the-road illumination.

Wheel Package

Precision-crafted 18” alloy wheels help keep you grounded in style. Available 20” design upgrades elevate the tone wherever they’re seen.

Power Moonroof

The power moonroof has the option to recess fully or open to a tilt. Smart one-touch opening and closing simplifies control, while tinted glass helps to manage glare and heat.


At the core of the MDX is a direct-injected, 290 horsepower, 3.5-litre i-VTEC®, 3.5-litre i-VTEC® V6 engine with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™. In other words, the MDX is driven by power and performance.


With more gears, the 9-speed automatic transmission is engineered to enable the engine to operate at peak performance for optimal acceleration. Paddle shifters grant you the exhilaration of manual control and immediate response.


The Integrated Dynamic System (IDS) allows the MDX to complement the personality of its driver. Choose between Normal, Sport and Comfort modes and it is designed to adjust the steering effort, throttle response, SH-AWD®, and even the sound of the engine, to match the mood you want to set for the drive ahead.

Multi-Link Rear Suspension

The fully independent front and multi-link rear suspension helps give the MDX the smooth ride quality of an SUV, with the enhanced control and reactive handling of a high-performance vehicle.

The power of SH-AWD®

Acura’s groundbreaking Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ SH-AWD® system allows a remarkable connection between driver and vehicle.

All-Wheel Drive™ SH-AWD®

Standard on every MDX, SH-AWD® is designed to sense driving conditions and react accordingly by sending up to 70% of torque to the rear wheels. As a result, handling is both confident and awe-inspiring.

Super Handling All-Wheel Drive

By continuously directing engine power to match driver input, weight distribution, available traction, and other conditions, the torque vectoring SH-AWD® system results in enhanced performance that simply can’t be matched by conventional all-wheel drive systems.

Third Row’s A Charm

The spacious interior of the MDX contains a world of comfort and convenience for both driver and passengers. Amenities abound, including keyless entry for all doors, an available Acura DVD, and One Touch Walk-In Entry. All MDX models are equipped with 50/50-folding third-row seats.


Exercise complete control over audio, climate, and other functions with simple shortcuts on the On-Demand Multi-Use Display™ touchscreen.


The sophisticated interior lines of MDX Elite models are trimmed with handcrafted wood, giving you the ultimate sense of sharpened refinement. Options include a West African sourced Black Limba and an Olive Ash Burl originating from Spain.

Climate Control

The synchronized tri-zone automatic climate control with air-filtration system helps to keep driver, front passenger and second-row passenger zones at their selected temperatures.


Transform the second-row into a theatre. Complete with sun shades, wireless headphones and compatibility with most electronics like smartphones and HDMI devices. An available split screen means those in the back don’t need to agree on what to watch.

One Touch Entry

Press the illuminated One Touch Walk-In button, and the second-row seats automatically fold and slide forward, granting expanded third-row access with ease.

Remote Engine Starter

The standard bi-directional key fob allows you to communicate with your MDX. When you send a request to your MDX – lock, unlock, rear liftgate open, or engine start – LEDs will light up on the fob confirming that the request was received.

Elliot Scheiner

“Acura cares, unlike some other providers that put systems in automobiles. Others come from a scientific background, meaning they tune using numbers and charts. Not ears. That’s not what music is about, and it is the key to why the ELS Studio systems are so highly regarded.”

Precision Amplified

Dedicated amp channels for each individual speaker means sound can be delivered into the ear at the same time from all speakers.

The MDX adapts to fit a range of passenger and cargo combinations with its flexible 60/40 split second-row and 50/50 split third-row seatbacks. Fold down the second and third rows and convert an already impressive 447 litres of cargo volume into 2,575 litres of flexible storage.


The available Cross Traffic Monitor System incorporates Blind Spot Radar engineered to help detect approaching vehicles on either side of the ILX. Should a vehicle be detected in your blind spot area, this system is designed to provide an audible alert and display a warning, along with a view from the standard multi-angle rearview camera.


The standard Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System uses a camera located between the windshield and rearview mirror that is engineered to alert you if it determines that your ILX may collide with a vehicle detected in front of it. If your vehicle speed is above 15 kilometers per hour and it determines a collision is possible, it is designed to warn you with audible alerts and a flashing amber “BRAKE” warning light on the Multi-Information Display.


The standard Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) warning was developed to help reduce the likelihood of a frontal collision. The system is designed to alert the driver of a potential collision and take steps to help mitigate the severity of a frontal collision if the system determines it to be unavoidable.


The Road Departure Mitigation System works with the Lane Keeping Assist System and uses the monocular camera to recognize painted lane lines, Botts Dots and Cat Eye markers to help determine lane boundaries. When the ILX’s current trajectory strays from a detected lane, the system is designed to trigger an audible alert and apply corrective steering input, and if required, braking force to help maintain your current lane.


As with a conventional cruise-control system, the standard Adaptive Cruise Control System with Low-Speed Follow allows you to set a desired speed, but it is also designed to keep a set distance from the car ahead of you, so you can enjoy cruise-control even in light traffic conditions.


Using ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper, the available BSI System iluminates an indicator light to let you know a vehicle has been detected in your blind spot, and alerts you with an audible signal if you try to clange lanes.


A small camera mounted at the top of the windshield can track lane markings on the road and then determine when the driver is making an unintended departure from a detected lane. This standard system provides visual alerts on the driver’s instrument panel along with an audible warning.


There’s no hiding the pedigree of the MDX as a track-honed performance vehicle that connects you to the road. Beneath its aggressive looks lie heart-pumping performance features, including a direct-injected, 3.5-litre i-VTEC® V6 engine, torque-vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) and a 9-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift® paddle shifters.
