New for 2018

The 2018 Acura MDX has received updated technology features, including added Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ compatibility and a 7.0-inch lower touchscreen that is even more responsive than the current model's.   


Standout safety and superb comfort combine with the luxurious features that make up the 2018 Acura MDX. The MDX is the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time, and based on its bold styling, premium features, and standard AcuraWatch™, that’s a badge of honor it’s not likely to lose anytime soon. With a robust list of safety features including Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), and Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), the 2018 MDX will take you everywhere you want to go in safety—and style.  

The 2018 Acura MDX is a five-door luxury SUV available with seating for seven. Pricing for the revised MDX starts at $44,200.*

The Perfect Ride for…

Families looking for space but who don't want to sacrifice comfort or luxury for convenience. Intuitive technology, such as the next-generation On-Demand Multi-Use Display™ and available rear-entertainment system (with split-screen option) will keep passengers engaged no matter how long the trip.   

Drive & Handling

Acura offers the 2018 MDX with a standalone 3.5-liter V6 and nine-speed automatic transmission. This engine produces 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque and is available with front-wheel drive or a non-hybrid version of the SH-AWD® system that retains the torque-vectoring capability.    

Key Features

On-Demand Multi-Use Display™​

41 potential buttons have been paired down to nine in the MDX's new-and-improved control center. Directly access up to 10 different audio sources and easily adjust climate, navigation, or speed-dial features. Utilize the Shortcut button to quickly access all of your preset favorites, and use the many different displays to effortlessly jump from one task to the other. The On-Demand Multi-Use Display™ makes driving simple, connected, and pleasurable.

ELS Studio® Premium Audio System

It's often said that music can set the tone of any road trip, so why compromise the musical mood of your daily commute? The available ELS Studio® Premium 10-speaker Audio System (which comes as part of the MDX Technology Package) was designed in part by Grammy®-winning recording engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner and will amp your ride with its crisp, quality sound. It will feel like stepping into a music studio every time you slip into your MDX's driver's seat. 

Alternative Options

Those on the lookout for something a little smaller should consider the Acura RDX, a five-door, five-seat luxury compact SUV. Drivers looking for a stylish, capable crossover that sports an upscale design that is equal parts sophisticated and sporty will find it in the RDX. Looking for something a little sportier? Consider the NSX. Designed to be just as approachable and exhilarating as the original, the new NSX also features a sophisticated hybrid powertrain and all-wheel drive system.
