FIRST LOOK: 2017 Acura MDX. The third-generation Acura MDX received a complete redesign for the 2014 model year and now benefits from a major refresh for model year 2017. Upgrades and improvements for 2017 include refreshed exterior styling, highlighted by a bold new diamond pentagon grille drawn from the Acura Precision Concept. All 2017 MDX models now come with the AcuraWatch suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, a first in the luxury SUV category. AcuraWatch combines with Acura’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure and a comprehensive list of active and passive safety features to deliver intelligent safety and confident driving performance at the top of the competitive segment.
All 2017 MDX models also benefit from increased standard luxury and technology features including an Electric Parking Brake with Automatic Brake Hold, Auto High Beam headlights, SiriusXM Radio 2.0 and four 2.5-amp USB charging ports. 2017 MDX models with Technology and Advance packages add Bi-Directional Keyless Remote Engine Start, new 20-inch wheel and tires (+1 inch), power folding side mirrors, and HD Traffic. In addition to these features, Advance grades add LED fog lights, genuine Olive Ash Burl or Black Limba wood interior trim, a heated steering wheel and Surround-View Camera System with six selectable viewing angles. Advance models now also come equipped with two second-row captain’s chairs and a center console with two USB ports, replacing the three-person second-row seating found on lower grades. An ultra-widescreen Rear Entertainment System is also available on models with the Advance ENT Package.
All MDX models offer a choice of front-wheel-drive or Super Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). Both the Technology Package and the Advance Package are available with the Entertainment Package. An expansive range of genuine Acura accessories designed specifically for the MDX is also available.
The 2017 MDX was designed and developed in North America and is produced at the company’s Lincoln, Alabama manufacturing facility using domestic and globally sourced parts. Beginning in early 2017, MDX production will commence both the Alabama plant and at the East Liberty, Ohio auto plant.
