The 2017 Acura MDX vs. the Competition
December 12 2016, Acura of Langley
The luxury crossover SUV category is one of the fastest growing in the automotive industry, which has resulted in the MDX being amongst Acura's most successful models.
Even more impressive, the Acura MDX is the most popular dedicated seven-passenger luxury SUV in Canada, thanks to sharp styling that's new for 2017, a high-quality interior that's big on passenger roominess, comfort, leading-edge technology, premium class luxury, and luggage space, strong performance mixed with excellent fuel-efficiency, class-leading safety, and much more.
To help you figure out how the 2017 Acura MDX compares to premium-branded rivals, we put together a simple, straightforward, point-form list of key standard features and specifications from the base trim levels of top-selling seven-seat competitors in the class, including the Infiniti QX60, Buick Enclave, Volvo XC90, Audi Q7, BMW X5, Lexus GX, and Mercedes-Benz GLS, thus leaving it up to you to choose the ideal mid-size SUV for your family's needs:
As you can plainly see, one of Acura's most obvious advantages is safety. The 2017 MDX is loaded up with advanced driver-assistance systems that, together with its inherently rigid body shell and additional safety equipment like a driver's knee airbag, a multi-angle rearview camera, and LED headlights complete with automatic high beams, make it the only vehicle in its class to earn a coveted IIHS Top Safety Pick + rating.
The MDX' powerful standard V6 is also one of only two in the mid-size luxury SUV segment to include cylinder deactivation, which shuts down three of the engine's cylinders under light loads for reduced fuel consumption and emissions, while its nine-speed automatic also delivers class-leading efficiency, the result being one of the better combined fuel economy ratings in the class at 11.0 L/100km. This is especially good when factoring in the MDX' impressive performance.
Of course, value for money key the Acura MDX' success too, with other notable standard features including proximity-sensing keyless access, a powered steering column, a heatable steering wheel, two colour infotainment displays incorporating Siri Eyes Free plus text message and email reading/responding capability, four USB ports, adaptive cruise control, leather upholstery, and more. Also positive, the MDX' cargo volume is equal to or better than many of its key rivals.
