5 reasons to buy the 2014 Acura MDX

1. Ready for your crew

With the 2014 Acura MDX, you don't have to leave anyone behind. The MDX is a three-row SUV that comes standard with seating for seven people. The MDX is even great for families that have multiple kids in car seats—the third row has three sets of LATCH anchors, making it easy to install car seats in any position. 

2. Standard luxury

When you choose the 2014 Acura MDX, you choose luxury, even in the base trim. All 2014 MDX trims come standard with leather upholstery, a premium audio system, and a power moonroof. A push-button start and personalized settings make it easy to share the MDX with another driver, ensuring you always have your seat in the perfect position. Available options like heated and ventilated seats add to the upscale feel. 

3. Long-lasting design

The Acura MDX was entirely redesigned for the 2014 model year, with a shape that was used until 2022. So your MDX will look sleek and modern, despite being a slightly older model year. Standard features like LED headlights and 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels keep the MDX looking current. 

4. Flexible cargo space

The 2014 Acura MDX comes standard with nearly 15 cu-ft of cargo space behind the third row. If you need more storage space, the MDX has plenty to offer: up to 68 cu-ft when the seats are folded flat. The third row has a 50/50 split and the second row has a 60/40 split, allowing you to utilize the cabin space in the most effective way for you and your crew. 

5. Available driver aids 

If you want peace of mind behind the wheel, the 2014 Acura MDX offers it, thanks to its available driver-assistance features. The optional Technology package includes lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and forward collision warning, in addition to navigation.
