5 reasons to buy the 2015 Acura MDX

1. Excellent handling in all weather

Unlike many other large three-row SUVs, the 2015 MDX draws on the heritage of Acura racing to offer a dynamic ride that's anything but ordinary. The sport-tuned suspension in every 2015 MDX controls body sway, giving you confident cornering. Get a 2015 Acura MDX equipped with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD®) for even more confidence behind the wheel. Power is transferred to each wheel individually, while torque vectoring boosts power to the outside wheels during turns. The result is impressive handling and traction.

2. Long list of standard features

The 2015 Acura MDX is available in two trims: the MDX and MDX SH-AWD. While you can shop for a model that's equipped with an options package, the standard features on this SUV won't leave you wanting. A power sunroof, LED headlights, Bluetooth® connectivity, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a surround-view camera are just a few of the features included on every trim. 

3. Entertainment for the whole family

Keeping your passengers occupied on a long road trip can be a challenge. Luckily, the 2015 Acura MDX has the tools you need to keep them entertained as the miles roll by. The available Entertainment Package adds a nine-inch rear entertainment system, an 11-speaker Acura ELS Studio® sound system, and a 110-volt plug to the center console. Or, get an ultrawide 16.2-inch screen with HDMI input and a 12-speaker Acura ELS Studio surround sound system in the Advance Package. That way, your passengers can easily connect their favorite console or watch a movie.

4. Quiet and comfortable ride

Whether it's the comfortable standard leatherette seats or the perforated Milano leather seats in the Advance Package, you'll feel right at home in the 2015 Acura MDX. Every 2015 MDX has active sound control that uses the sound system to cancel road noise from the outside, plus an acoustic windshield and front windows to quiet the ride inside even further. Standard heated front seats keep you warm when the weather isn't, while the standard tri-zone automatic climate control lets everyone set the temperature just right.

5. Powerful yet fuel-sipping engine

Every 2015 Acura MDX is equipped with a powerful V6 engine that cuts down on trips to the pump. The 2015 Acura MDX with AWD can tow up to an estimated 3,500 lbs. when properly equipped—plenty for any small things that need towing.

 Plus, the 2015 Acura MDX with FWD gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg highway and 20 mpg city, or a combined 23 mpg.
