2016 Acura MDX Review
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 moon roof giving it a sport touch, led fog lights, body side moldings, 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 few improvements and upgrades. It will have heated steering wheel, elegant and refined wood-grain details, plenty of space and safety features for seven adults, first row and second row come enriched with style and comfort features leaving enough of the same for the third row.
The 2016 Acura MDX is expect to be seen in two versions. The first is with the base engine of 3.5 liter that brings direct injection technology and is capable to produce 290 horsepower and 267 of torque. The 3.5liter V6 returns good fuel economy due to his cylinder management system and is a significant improvement compared to the previous 3.7 liter engine. We predict that this setup will higher efficiency and as a result it offers 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 design it goes 20/28/22.
It will have a six speed automatic transmission (with comfort, normal and sport modes), with sequential sport shift paddle shifters and grade logic control. The second one is a Hybrid, this has not been confirmed but there are strong rumors about it. We are still waiting for the official confirmation from the makers and rumors suggest that it will offer similar performances but about 25 to 30 percent lower fuel consumption.
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 $42,865 and depending of the equipment it can even go to more than $57,000. When it comes to release date we can only say that we are still waiting for the official information’s about this. We know it might come during the next few months and our guess is that Acura will wait for October or November to introduce this car. Most details about base version are already known so we expect to see it offered soon.
