MDX Driving
Coming soon for all Orland Park, Tinley Park, and Naperville area drivers, the 2017 Acura MDX features a number of key changes that distinguish it from the 2016 model. Click here to visit our pre-owned Acura MDX’s and other Acura SUV’s. It still retains everything drivers love about last year’s model, but the 2017 model highlights Acura’s commitment to continue to improve and evolve. So what exactly has been updated?

1. New Motor

Borrowing the basic layout of the 2017 Acura NSX, Acura’s supercar, the 2017 MDX features a V6 engine and three separate electric motors to improve fuel economy. The regular MDX’s engine displaces 3.5L, but the 2017 now comes in a Sport Hybrid model which displaces 3L and comes with a number of fuel-saving features.

2. More Power

With a new engine comes new power, and the 2017 MDX delivers more horsepower than previous models. Now the MDX offers 325 horsepower, which is up substantially from the 290 offered by the 2016 model.

3. New Style

There have been a number of slightly exterior modifications to the MDX, and the 2017 model has dropped the familiar Acura grille. In its place is a re-styled and streamlined grille that comes in a pentagon shape. The 2017 MDX also features a new rear bumper and integrated dual exhaust outlets.

4. New Safety Features

This new 2017 MDX now comes standard with a wide array of active safety features, including collision mitigation breaking, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and road departure mitigation.

5. New Comforts

The 2017 MDX offers an available heated steering wheel, surround-view camera system, and a widescreen rear entertainment system. So the drive is not only more stylish and more powerful, but it’s more convenient and comfortable as well.
