Engineered for all mankind

2016 MDX

In order to create a truly luxurious crossover that is as versatile as drivers need it to be, Acura pushed aside the familiar and expanded on the past generations to reimagine a luxury crossover that Michigan and Detroit Metro drivers would appreciate. The result: the 2016 Acura MDX, a fusion of power, elegance and technology.



Simultaneously agile and powerful

It’s impossible to know just where the road is going to take you, but Acura’s available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) and its standard 3.5L V6 engine make the MDX ready for nearly anything. Michigan drivers should have no trouble heading off-road when the need for an adventure or camping trip strikes, and the MDX carries all of the many comforts of a modern society along for the ride.

  • MDX-FuelEfficiency

    Fuel Economy

    A “fuel efficient SUV” used to sound like a silly idea, but Acura engineers reshaped the way many drivers think about SUV engines. The 2016 Acura MDX delivers both power and fuel economy, rated at 290 hp and an EPA-estimated 27 highway and 20 city mpg (2016 Acura MDX FWD models with idle stop).[1]

  • 06_9-Speed-Sequential-SportShift-Automatic

    9-Speed Automatic Transmission

    Engineered directly alongside the new engine, the MDX’s 9-speed automatic transmission is built to offer smooth shifting and deliver maximum fuel efficiency. For the familiar control of a manual transmission, you need only tap the paddle shifters mounted on the steering column to change gears.

  • MDX-AllWheelDrive

    Super Handling All-Wheel Drive

    The MDX has Acura’s famous Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system available for upgrade. Setting itself apart from the average AWD SUV, the MDX SH-AWD has an all-weather advantage as well as improved handling on dry roads, adjusting power and torque to match your traction needs.

  • MDX-StabilityAssist

    Agile Handling Assist

    Agile Handling Assist uses the MDX’s Vehicle Stability Assist to bring improved handling to your time behind the wheel. By using this safety feature proactively, the MDX can correct understeer or oversteer and help you trace the path you want through a curve.

  • 11_Integrated-Dynamics-System

    Integrated Dynamics System

    No two people are the same, and the MDX is prepared to conform to your driving style. With the push of a button, you can switch between three driving modes, depending on how you need your new MDX to respond. Feel free to use a different mode for the family road trip than you might use driving home after a long day.

  • MDX-QuietRide

    Quiet and Smooth

    Despite the power and high-performance nature, Acura’s MDX is an elegant vehicle that delivers a quiet driving experience. The engine is built for minimal noise, its triple-sealed tailgate and doors reduce road noise, and acoustic glass combines with special insulators to keep the cabin quiet and serene.


Subtle yet expressive

The 2016 Acura MDX has a truly distinct profile, setting itself apart from other SUVs in the Detroit Metro area. Its sleek design is situated lower to the ground to give it a more aggressive look and keep it as fun to stare at as it is to drive. Jewel Eye LED headlights give the front end a look that is uniquely Acura and is sure to turn heads.

  • MDX-RearCamera

    Multi-angle Rearview Camera

    Each MDX features a rearview camera with multiple angles to give you a clear view before backing up. When you shift into reverse, the system will automatically bring up the camera display in the dash screen. Just press a button to move from standard to top-down or wide-angle views.

  • MDX-LEDHeadlights

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    These Acura-exclusive headlights give the MDX a truly unique sense of style, with reflectors that sparkle during the day while also giving these headlights a familiar profile at night. Brighter beams and a whiter light give these LEDs and edge of traditional headlights, too.

  • MDX-Wipers

    Speed Sensing Wipers

    Many drivers don’t give much thought to their vehicle’s windshield wipers, but Acura’s designers covered every inch of the MDX. Automatic speed adjustment and superior windshield coverage help keep snow and rain away, and the resting position hides the wipers out of sight for a more elegant looking MDX.


Luxury and practicality in one

Imagine your ideal, elegant SUV interior. Now take that refined look back to the drawing board and refine it another level, and you may have an idea of what the designers of the MDX went through to deliver this luxurious yet practical interior. When Acura reimagined this crossover, they started from the basics, and the result is a mixture of elegance and practical design that is tough to beat.

  • MDX-2nd3rdRowSeats

    Standard Third-Row Seating

    One of the most appreciated MDX features. Many competing crossovers require an upgrade for a third row of seating, but the MDX is designed for it. Fit up to seven full-size adults in the MDX and still have room int eh cargo space for luggage.

  • MDX-CargoArea

    Cargo Area

    The standard MDX cargo area is spacious enough on its own, but if you need to expand, it has a 60/40 split-folding second-row as well as a 50/50 split-folding third-row. Secure hooks let you tie down large or awkward cargo to keep it from shifting while you drive.

  • MDX-PowerTailgate

    Power Tailgate

    Access the MDX interior from the tailgate with your hands full, no need to fumble around for the keys. Just press a button on your remote and the tailgate can open or close remotely. If it senses it is bumping up against something, the tailgate will reverse direction to minimize the chance of damage.

  • MDX-ClimateControl

    Automatic Climate Control

    Stay comfortable in the MDX with automatic climate control. This tri-zone system keeps the driver, front passenger, and rear cabin at separate temperatures so that everyone can be as cool or as warm as they need. Set the temperature and the MDX does the rest.

  • MDX-MultiUseDisplay

    On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD)

    Acura is a leader in auto tech, and they very quickly noticed they would need to abandon the traditional buttons in favor of something more versatile. The On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD) switches the controls to be what you need them to be when you need them, cutting dozens of potential buttons down to a touchscreen.

  • MDX-SMSEmail

    SMS/Email/Siri Eyes Free

    Using a phone behind the wheel is unsafe (and often illegal), but Acura knows many people need to keep that connection strong, even while driving. That’s why the MDX has email and SMS texting integration as well as compatibility with the iPhone’s Siri Eyes Free system to let you send and receive texts without ever touching your phone.


New heights of safety

For many Michigan and Detroit Acura drivers, this will not be their first MDX. It might not even be their second. Drivers keep coming back to this Acura crossover when they need a new family vehicle, and it’s not just the luxury and dependability. The safety makes it a smart choice for families on the go.

  • MDX-BodyStructure

    Body Structure

    The MDX was rebuilt from the ground up, and safety started with the frame. Acura began by thinking about safety with its Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. This frame is built for ideal energy distribution in an accident to help keep the cabin secure and intact.

  • MDX-BrakingSystem

    Advanced Braking Systems

    Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes come standard and deliver responsive stopping power that you can depend on. Electronic Brake Force Distribution ensures that the weight distribution of the MDX is accounted for when braking, and Brake Assist can even detect hard braking and ensure your anti-lock brakes activate for added safety.

  • MDX-AgileHandling

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    Vehicle Stability Assist can monitor the direction you’re headed as well as driver input to know if you’re on the right path. If you have hit a slick part of the road and start heading in an unintended direction, the MDX can adjust torque, speed, and throttle position to stabilize you.

  • CollisionSystem

    Collision Mitigation Braking

    Safety is the top priority on a good family vehicle, and the MDX with AcuraWatch Plus safety features can actually keep an eye out for accidents and apply the brakes on its own. Collision Mitigation Braking uses a high-res camera and a radar system to keep an eye out for potential collisions, warning you and applying brakes if needed.

  • RoadDeparture

    Road Departure Mitigation

    MDX models with AcuraWatch Plus can watch the side of the road for markers and ensure you aren’t drifting off pavement. Road Departure Mitigation alerts you if it detects that you are heading from your lane or away from the road so that you can have control over whether or not your MDX is heading off-road.

  • child_safety

    Child Safety

    The 2016 Acura MDX has been built for families. LATCH-compliant safety seat anchors make it easy to quickly and securely install a child safety seat. The sensors in the front seat can even detect whether you have a full-size adult or not and adjust the airbag settings as needed.
