2016 Acura MDX Buyer's Guide

The 2016 Acura MDX is considered the flagship of the brand’s SUV/crossover lineup, backed by a complete redesign for the 2014 model year that propelled the MDX to the top of its segment’s sales charts. But after catching its breath for the previous selling season, the brand has delivered even more premium features for the MDX for 2016, including a standard nine-speed automatic transmission, a high-tech twin-clutch iteration of Acura’s hallmark Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, and an extended portfolio of AcuraWatch driver-assistance measures.

More specifically, the 2016 MDX - an IIHS Top Safety Pick for 2015 - offers adaptive cruise control, collision-mitigation braking, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping technology, blind-spot assistance and even Road Departure Mitigation, which is a new, further enhancement of the MDX lane-keeping setup.

What makes it move?

Providing the power for the 2016 Acura MDX is a standard 3.5-liter V6 with both direct injection and i-VTEC valve-timing technology, and that engine is good for 279 hp and 252 lb.-ft. of torque, too. Yet even with that robust output, the vehicle can leverage its new nine-speed transmission—offering Sequential SportShift functionality—to achieve EPA ratings of up to 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway/23 mpg combined in its front-wheel-drive configuration (and a line of 19/26/22 with its upgraded SH-AWD system).
