2016 Acura MDX is the vehicle that would please your senses if you like to drive in comfort. The MDX has decent looks and could be called the family car, your kids will have enough room for stretching their limbs while the car is in motion.
Exterior and Interior Design of 2016 Acura MDX
Acura has earned the reputation of being reliable since its introduction in 2001. Now, more than 2 decades later, its exterior still maintains its reputation. The front does not spread out far making the vehicle easy to maneuver on city roads. If you notice the grille and the lights, you will find them in perfect harmony. The grille has an angular shape and the headlamps mimic the ‘eye’ look. The headlamps have the Acura’s Jewel Eye LED lights, which provide precise illumination and being LED, consume far less power. The parking sensors in the front and rear ensure extra protection as they inform the driver through repeated beeps whenever another vehicle is too much in the proximity risking collision. You can also have the blind spot information feature in this Acura. When driving above 6mph, the feature will inform you when at the time of changing lanes another vehicle is too close and shifting lane could be dangerous.
The inside look of the car speaks of comfort. The seats have bolsters at strategic points that provide considerable back support for every occupant. The front and back row seats offer commendable spaciousness. By folding the second row seats, you could accommodate more people in the third row or use the space for cargo. The dashboard looks simple with two display screens – one for navigation and the other for infotainment.
Engine and Mileage of 2016 Acura MDX
Under the hood, this Acura is equipped with a V-6 engine having a capacity of 3.5 liter. It works using the direct injection technology. Consequently, the fuel burns better offering significant fuel saving. However, how much fuel the engine will be able to save is yet to be seen. The carmaker also promises smooth switching between gears because of the latest 9-speed automatic transmission, which is a better version than the 6-speed. As 9-speed is lighter, the overall vehicle’s weight will be lower than the previous models. Its mpg is fixed at 19 for city roads and 26 for highways.
Price and Date of Release
It will be priced at $42,865 and will arrive in the early months of 2015.
If you prefer peace and quiet while driving and would want every passenger in your car to enjoy the ride, you would love this car. 2016 Acura MDX should have offered better mpg, though.
