Driving the new 2017 Acura MDX provides drivers the comfort of knowing they’re vehicle is working to protect them.
Acura is a brand that has effectively proven that luxury can be an affordable trait in a vehicle. Acura has created a reputation for offering luxury vehicles at reasonable prices, and the 2017 Acura MDX is a perfect demonstration of that reputation. The Acura MDX is the brand’s most popular SUV, and for good reason. The engineers at Acura have been focusing on two major components for the 2017 MDX model: Safety and Style. They’ve equipped the spacious SUV with some of the most up to date safety technology, earning a Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS. Acura Santa Barbara is proud to be an authorized Acura dealer and encourages customers to come visit to learn more about the benefits of driving with Acura.
The MDX is Family-Friendly and Stylish
The 2017 Acura MDX is a spacious vehicle with three rows of seating, including two captain’s chairs in the middle row—rather than a bench seat—accommodating seven passengers comfortably. It’s among the lowest-priced three row SUV’s on the market, yet it doesn’t seem to lack in any other categories.
The MDX is a recommended buy according to Consumer Reports magazine, as well as earning five out of five stars as a Top Safety Pick when subject to crash tests. With a 3.5-liter V-6 engine creating 290 hp, supplemented by a nine-speed automatic transmission, the Acura MDX boasts an impressive fuel-efficiency rating of 23.7 mpg city/highway. In fact, a study conducted by the federal government shows that a fuel-efficiency rating of 23 mpg for a three-row SUV is among the best in the industry.
Perhaps the most impressive innovations Acura applied to the 2017 MDX was the addition of new safety technology. For instance, the MDX now comes standard with:
- Lane-Keeping Assist – This notifies the driver anytime he or she is drifting into another lane without the proper turn signal on. If the driver continues to drift the vehicle will realign itself into the center of lane while still attempting to alert the driver.
- Front-Collision Warning – This system uses radar to constantly monitor the speed of the vehicles around you relative to your speed to determine whether a crash might occur. Then it will notify the driver, and even assist in braking, if necessary.
- Road Departure Mitigation – This works similarly to the Lane-Keeping assist, but instead detects when the vehicle is drifting off of the road.
