2011 Acura MDX Overview
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That is what the folks at Acura decided with the sturdy, luxurious, and versatile 2011 Acura MDX SUV.
The seven-passenger 2011 Acura MDX is equipped with a 300-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6, which is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode. With Acura’s standard Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive, the 2011 Acura MDX can tow up to 5,000 pounds, which is impressive for a midsize SUV. Fuel economy ratings of 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway are decent and stack up against competing luxury SUVs such as the BMW X5 and Lexus RX 350.
Last year, the Acura MDX received changes to the grille, gauges, steering wheel, taillights and tailpipes, and added the Advance Package. Auto-leveling xenon headlights, power tailgate and 18-inch alloy wheels come standard, while 19-inch alloy wheels are optional.
Inside, the luxurious 2011 Acura MDX is adorned in leather and features eight-way power heated/cooled front seats and three-zone automatic climate control. With six different cargo configurations, the spacious 2011 Acura MDX offers an above-average total cargo volume of 83.5 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded. Upgraded technologies include an optional rear DVD entertainment system, heated second-row seats, voice-recognition navigation system with real-time traffic updates, and a sport-styled steering wheel. Other options include a sunroof, 10-speaker surround sound system, and USB/iPod integration.
Acura’s “Safety Through Innovation” initiative has helped the MDX earn top ratings in government crash tests with such standard active and passive safety technologies as dual-stage front airbags, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor for all three rows of seats, vehicle stability assist with all-disc antilock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, and an electronic stability system with traction control. Options include a blind-spot warning system and adaptive cruise control with a collision mitigation feature, which helps reduce the chances of a collision by alerting you to potential collision situations and automatically activates the brakes if the system determines a collision is unavoidable.
