Power Your Commute in a Plush 2018 Acura MDX

By Emily Eppley | July 17th, 2018


For a smooth drive with great fuel efficiency and an interior that focuses on luxury, take home the 2018 Acura MDX. The standard V-6 engine puts out ample power for in-town and highway cruising alike, plus there is a hybrid powertrain that gives you a little extra power. There’s also a long list of standard and available interior features that lavish you and your passengers in comfort and convenience. All these amenities and more will have you wondering why you never got a three-row SUV from Acura before.

The 2018 Acura MDX comes standard with a standard 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive for smooth power delivery. However, if you need a little extra control in all weather and road conditions, the available all-wheel drive is the right choice for you.

You can also upgrade to the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD model that features three electric motors and a 3.5-liter engine for 321 total horsepower. That’s more than enough ponies to get you to dance practice in time.

There is seating for up to seven in the Acura MDX, so you can load up the kids and their friends. Get creative with your seating thanks to the flexibility of a 60/40 split second-row bench or swap it out for the available folding captain’s chairs. The third row offers a 50/50 split so you can adapt to a variety of passenger and cargo combinations. Make use of the 15.8 cubic feet of space behind the third row or fold down both rear rows for up to 90.9 cubes of cargo space you can fill with project materials for the house or camping gear for your weekend away.

The recessed cubby on the left side of the trunk area is just right for a jug of milk, six-pack of soda, or any similar sized items you want to stay put. The under-floor storage area is just right for camera bags, briefcases, laptops, and other items you want to keep hidden from prying eyes. The storage lid stays open at almost any angle for loading and unloading convenience or can fold flat against the floor to add sub-floor space to the main storage area.

Enjoy refinement throughout the 2018 MDX’s cabin, like its standard leather seats, available handcrafted wood accents, and tech to keep passengers entertained and comfortable. You’ll love the tri-zone climate control that allows the driver, front passenger, and rear passengers to personalize their temperature settings. You can even bring in more natural light with the power moonroof with the option to open it all the way or just tilt it a bit.

You can stay connected on the go by integrating your smartphone to the multi-use display screen to easily access your texts, answer phone calls hands-free with Bluetooth, and even use voice commands to respond to emails. And forget about the age-old “are we there yet?” conversation as the second-row transforms into a theater that’s complete with sun shades, wireless headphones, and fold-down monitor to stream your favorite shows or movies.

Don’t just go from point A to point B; drive with comfort and enthusiasm with the three-row 2018 Acura MDX. You’ll love the thoughtful details, comfortable amenities, and ample power at every trim level. Test drive one today at Garber Acura.
