If you truly want to understand what is the 2016 Acura MDX car all about we will have to go a bit back in the Honda history. When we speak or mention sport cars of today Acura is one of the carmakers that come to your mind, right? They are modern looking, fashionable, attractive to the eye and they can perform!
Evolving from year to year this Japanese car puts the bar up each time, but this time with the category of car you will be surprise to hear. The 2016 Acura MDX has taken an important place in the category of SUV considering they are world-wide known for their knowledge in the sport car industry. For over ten years they have been in the top place in the SUV category and new model will come with more room than any other SUV in Acura history, increased power and an accent on the fuel economy. All of this allows Acura to be one of the leaders in the SUV category. A luxury SUV who is a friend of your wallet from the point when you buy it to the point where it saves you money on a daily basis, gives you and your friends comfort and space for as much as seven adults in it and a look made to attract people of all generations. This is something special from Honda at the right time.
There will be no big changes on the 2016 Acura MDX so we can expect the similar but also an advanced look compared to the previous model. This means that the exterior will probably be equipped with a fancy moonroof visor giving it a sport touch, led fog lights, body side molding, splash guard set, roof rails, 19-inch chrome-look alloy wheels, advance running boards to finish it with a cool look. The interior we predict will stay the same with slight changes to it. It will have heated steering wheel with an elegant and refined wood-grain look, plenty of space and safety for seven adults, first row and second row enriched with style and comfort leaving enough of the same for the third row.
Specs Of 2016 Acura MDX
The 2016 Acura MDX model will be again offered with only one engine. Base unit is the 3.5 liter direct injection V6 with 290 horsepower and 267 of torque. The 3.5liter V6 makes good fuel economy duo to the cylinder management when compared to the previously available 3.7 liter engine that was replaced few years ago. New Acura MDX we predict will have more efficient fuel use per mile, meaning it has a record of 18 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg altogether when in use of AWD or SH system. In the same time when in use of FWD setup it goes 20/28/21.
Depending on the choice power will be transferred to front wheels or all wheels. One of the biggest improvements to this generation is the delivery of the 9 speed sequential SportShift Automatic transmission that also comes with manual control. We need to add one more thing in the engine and transmission department, there is a possibility that a Hybrid version will be offered, this has not been confirmed but there are strong rumors about it. We are still waiting for the official confirmation from the makers.
2016 Acura MDX Price
The price for the 2016 Acura MDX is one segment that we don’t have any details about yet, but we took in mind the price of the previous model and the price of the competitors in the category. As nothing has been confirmed about the price, we speculate that the base model will cost about $43,000 and depending of the equipment it can even go up to $57,000.
Waiting for the release date for the 2016 Acura MDX we can only speculate about the time and place where the makers will do so. It is expected to be officially announced from the makers in the summer of 2015 and we predict it will be available on sale in the last months of 2015.
