The 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Is Powerful and Efficient

March 24th, 2017 by

The 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid is making its debut this April, presenting drivers with a powerful and efficient alternative on the road. Equipped with all-wheel drive and plenty of technology, sophistication, and comfort inside, the MDX Sport Hybrid is the first hybrid-electric crossover from Acura and is pushing the boundaries of what many drivers have come to expect from a hybrid vehicle—with more power and more style that go on to crush outdated assumptions.

Fuel Economy

At the heart of the matter for many drivers of hybrid vehicles is its EPA fuel economy rating. Achieving more than 45% of the non-hybrid MDX AWD, the Sport Hybrid model gets an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.* With fewer visits to the pump and a vehicle that can go the distance, the price discrepancy in the hybrid model versus the gas-powered version is more than accounted for.


The MDX Sport Hybrid doesn’t sacrifice power in order to achieve such high fuel economy estimates. In fact, the Sport Hybrid model offers up more power than the conventionally powered, non-hybrid MDX AWD by getting up to 321 hp and 289 lb-ft of torque. It’s powered by a 3.0L V6 engine and three electric motors that work together, along with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, to deliver impressive performance that values precision, control, and strength. And it’s no wonder, because it shares the same three-motor Super Handling All-Wheel Drive drivetrain system that you’ll find in Acura’s NSX supercar, giving drivers the feeling of zipping around the track on the daily grind.
