The 2019 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid features four new exterior color options and new interior wood treatment.
Similar in design to the NSX supercar, the MDX Sport Hybrid's powertrain features Acura's signature three-motor Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive, making it the brand's most powerful and efficient production SUV.
The 2019 MDX Sport Hybrid features a number of enhancements, including driver and front-passenger 4-way power lumbar support, authentic wood highlights, and high-contrast seat and door stitching.
Technology and Advance grades include unique interior trim, exterior badging and stainless steel sport pedals. Technology Package models include seating for seven, while the range-topping Advance Package incorporates a 6-passenger interior configuration with second-row captain's chairs and a large second-row center console in place of a three-occupant bench seat.
Engineered for customers who desire the ultimate in driving refinement, technological sophistication and prestige, the MDX Sport Hybrid's 3.0-liter V6 engine and three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling-All Wheel Drive delivers decisive power and control as well as instant torque, turning out 321-peak horsepower and 289 lb.-ft. total peak torque.
An advanced 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is standard -- a feature closely related to the NSX supercar's 9-speed DCT. Unlike a conventional automatic transmission, MDX Sport Hybrid's DCT offers ultra-fast gear changes and operates without the need for a torque converter, significantly improving efficiency.
The MDX Sport Hybrid's electric SH-AWD system operates independently of the gasoline engine, as the two rear-mounted electric motors dynamically apportion torque directly to the rear wheels. When cornering, the MDX Sport Hybrid delivers positive torque to the outside rear wheel, much like mechanical SH-AWD, to create a yaw moment.
