Acura is introducing the 2016 MDX, and it is loaded with exciting new safety, performance, and entertainment technology.
At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we are eager to share our favorite vehicles for 2016. This year, our top picks include the sophisticated and powerful Acura MDX. When it came to designing something as sleek and functional as the 2016 MDX, Acura designers looked to the timeless standards of classical luxury. Acura claims that the 2016 MDX is “refinement refined” and we wholeheartedly agree.
What sets the 2016 Acura MDX apart from other SUVs in its market class? For starters, the premium SUV offers sophisticated comfort, accessible technology, and dynamic performance that will leave a lasting impression.
The 2016 MDX is a luxury crossover that surrounds the driver and passenger in sumptuous leather and perfectly placed controls and screens. The cabin features tri-zone climate control with available GPS-link to follow the sun and make climate adjustments as necessary. Ten-way power seats provide an exceptional custom fit and provide four lower lumbar settings for ultimate support and comfort. Available leather seating adds an added touch of class and heating and ventilation options keep the driver and front passenger comfortable in any weather. Meticulously crafted finishes surround the driver and passengers in luxury. For those brining family or friends along, spacious rear seating provide ample room to relax and enjoy the ride together.
Innovative Technology and Controls
One of the most exciting features of the 2016 Acura MDX is the collection of accessible technology controls that put information you need at your fingertips. The Acura On Demand Multi-Use Display™ offers a dynamic touchscreen interface conveniently placed at hands level. This is separate from the eye-level display-only screen to deliver greater functionality and ease of use. Through the interface, drivers can easily adjust climate, entertainment, and navigation settings.
Our favorite safety technologies on the 2016 Acura MDX include the available AcuraWatch Plus and Technology Packages. These features bring futuristic safety features to your everyday driving experience. For example, Lane Keeping Assist System helps drivers steer back into a detected lane should the vehicle begin to drift without using the turn signal. Additionally, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow lets the vehicle maintain a set interval behind the car detected in front of you, up to and including a full stop.
Exceptional Driving Performance
Because the road can be an unpredictable place, Acura has developed the advanced Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ to constantly monitor speed, driver input and more to accurately send power and traction where it is needed most. This provides a more balanced and efficient driving experience and gives drivers more control no matter the road conditions.
The 2016 Acura MDX is powered by a 3.5 i-VTEC® V-6 engine that produces 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. The engine delivers immediate acceleration in a smooth and capable fashion. To further improve efficiency, the Variable Cylinder Management™ system allows the engine to run on only three cylinders while the vehicle is at highway cruising speed.
Drivers can follow the latest updates on the Acura MDX online with Santa Barbara Auto Group or by stopping in at Acura Santa Barbara to schedule a personalized test drive.
