2017 Acura MLX


The Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) enables you to choose the feel of the dynamic responses within your vehicle. With a button located by the shifter, you can change from the “Normal” setting to “Sport” to increase steering feel and quicken throttle response. On Super Handling All­Wheel Drive™ (SH­AWD®) models, the system more aggressively distributes power to the outside wheels in a curve.


Agile Handling Assist

Agile Handling Assist utilizes active braking­usually on the inside wheels­to minimize steering input and help you keep your preferred line through a turn. Working in conjunction with Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), it enhances everyday driving or spirited jaunts through the mountains.


Engine and Transmission

The Balance of Power

An automobile’s internal combustion engine is a work of art. It captures an explosion and then uses the power for good. In the case of the MDX, it is particularly good, as in class­-leading MPG ­rating good. The MDX draws both power and efficiency from an all-new 3.5 ­liter, 290 ­horsepower V­6 engine that features Direct Gas Injection, Variable system.

The all­new 9­speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle Cylinder Management™ (VCM® shifters is extraordinarily smooth. In automatic mode, the MDX driver can choose between economical or sport shifting. Paddle shifters put full manual control right at your ) and the Acura i­VTEC® fingertips.


Fuel Efficiency

Deftly Avoid Squirrels and Children

No longer are the terms “fuel efficiency” and “SUV” on opposite sides of the road. The EPA Fuel Economy Ratings27 of 19 city, 27 highway and 22 combined (Front­wheel drive without Idle Stop) are largely unheard of for a luxury 3­-row SUV. Acura pulled out all the stops to make the MDX as efficient as possible.

Driver Assistance

The best kind of backseat driver

To help make sure that you only take the MDX off the pavement when you want to, MDX models with AcuraWatch Plus are equipped with Road Departure Mitigation, which detects objects on the side of the road and helps you avoid them.


Tire Pressure Monitoring System

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) worries about your tires even if you haven’t. Pressure sensors mounted in each wheel send readings to a central electronic control unit that evaluates whether the pressure is within an acceptable range. If it’s more than 25% below the recommended level, the MDX alerts you on the Multi­Informational Display.
