March 24th, 2017 by

The 2017 Acura MDX is refurbished from the previous year’s model and is impressing Columbus drivers with more features coming standard than ever before and a robust road performance. And with options that include FWD, SH-AWD, and a hybrid model added to the lineup, drivers can find the right MDX for their lifestyle and driving preferences. All of this comes without sacrificing space inside, with three rows of passenger seating and plenty of cargo space to load up everyone and everything you need in style, no matter where you’re headed.

Under the hood of the 2017 Acura MDX is a 3.5L V6 that offers a dynamic and powerful performance on the road. Achieving up to 290 hp, the MDX delivers precise and sport-tuned handling paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Drivers who choose the Sport Hybrid model will see a jump in horsepower with a total 325-hp output. And with the AWD system, that power is delivered evenly to result in a sturdy, stable, and smooth ride.
