The significantly updated 2016 Acura MDX models come equipped with an advanced new nine-speed automatic transmission, a push-button electronic gear selector freeing up room above the center console, and a new Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system with a twin-clutch design delivering enhanced torque transfer and handling capabilities.
The 2016 MDX also adds numerous luxury upgrades, including a frameless rearview mirror, Siri Eyes Free voice recognition, an easy-entry/exit driver's seat that moves 35 mm rearward when the driver's door is opened, and TPMS fill assist that sounds an audible alert when the driver inflates the tire to the correct pressure.
Additional upgrades, depending on trim, include a Multi-View Angle Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines (standard on all models), a bi-directional remote engine starter, idle stop, and head up warning.
New for the 2016 Acura MDX is Road Departure Mitigation, which uses a Monocular Camera (mounted on the upper portion of the windshield) to identify solid or dashed painted lane lines, Botts' Dots and Cat Eye markers. RDM uses both steering force, via EPS, and braking force, via VSA, to help the MDX stay a detected lane.
Going into its third generation, the MDX is the best-selling three-row luxury SUV of all time. This sales history is backed up by the current generation MDX, which has received multiple awards for the 2015 model year. With the numerous enhancements made for 2016, the Acura MDX is primed to again impress customers and critics alike.
