Redesigned from the ground up

2016 MDX

The 2016 Acura MDX represents a bold new direction for the vehicle, coming fresh off of a redesign that started from scratch in order to best embody the luxury that Wisconsin drivers expect from an Acura. By pushing aside the familiar and reinventing the MDX, Acura created a whole new breed of luxury SUV.



Power and agility combined

You can never know where the road is going to lead, but the 2016 Acura MDX has Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) available for when the going gets tough. The standard 290-hp 3.5L V6 engine under the hood ensures you’re ready for nearly anything, whether it’s the daily commute or the weekend adventure.

  • Fuel Economy

    Fuel Economy

    The idea of a fuel efficient SUV was once laughable, but Acura engineers have made this powerful and elegant crossover one of the most fuel-efficient on the road. The 2016 Acura MDX has power, to the tune of 290 hp, yet it also features an EPA-estimated 27 highway mpg and 20 city mpg (2016 Acura MDX FWD models with idle stop).[1]

    9-Speed Automatic Transmission

    A new transmission was engineered to go with the MDX’s new engine, and they are designed to work with each other to deliver the highest level of power and efficiency. Smooth shifting and the available swift responses of steering wheel-mounted controls make sure the MDX responds reliably and predictably.

    Super Handling All-Wheel Drive

    The 2016 Acura MDX is available with Acura’s famous Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system. Different from the average all-wheel drive SUV, MDX SH-AWD models have the all-weather advantage while also receiving impressive traction on dry roads. The system automatically adjusts torque and shifts between front and all-wheel drive as needed.

  • 2016 MDX with AWD

    Agile Handling Assist

    Agile Handling Assist takes advantage of the 2016 MDX’s Vehicle Stability Assist safety feature to deliver improved handling. By proactively using this safety feature, the MDX is able to correct oversteer and understeer to keep you on the path you intend while tracing the line you want through a curve.

  • 2016 MDX Integrated Dynamics System

    Integrated Dynamics System

    All driver are different, and the MDX knows that sometimes you need a different system of driving dynamics for a different situation. With just the push of a button, you can shift the MDX from one driving mode to another (there are three total) so that it always responds as you need.

    Quiet and Smooth

    The MDX is a large, powerful crossover. But it’s as quiet as a mouse from the interior thanks to precision engineered elements that are designed specifically to keep the road noise and the engine noise out of the cabin. Acoustic glass and unique insulators add another level of protection from the loud outside world.


Bold yet elegant design

The 2016 Acura MDX has a distinct look that sets itself apart from other luxury SUVs in Wisconsin. A set of Jewel Eye LED headlights give it a look that is uniquely Acura, and the sleek aerodynamic build is complemented by a lower ride height for a lower overall center of gravity and improved handling. In short, it looks as impressive as it performs, and it features a range of high-tech features.

  • 2016 MDX Rear Camera

    Multi-angle Rearview Camera

    Whenever you shift into reverse, the 2016 Acura MDX flips on the rearview camera and gives you a look at what’s behind you before backing up. Just push a button on the display to switch from standard to top-down to wide-angle views.

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    LED headlights offer a brighter light at a lower power, but these aren’t just any LEDs. Acura Jewel Eye LED headlights feature unique reflectors that help deliver a brighter beam while also giving the vehicle a distinctive sparkle on the front end from the unique jewel-like reflectors.

    Speed Sensing Wipers

    You may not give much thought to the windshield wipers on your vehicle, but Acura designers focused on every detail in reinventing the MDX. These wipers automatically adjust their speed as needed, and when they aren’t needed, they just tuck away out of sight to let the MDX’s stylish design take the spotlight.


Spacious, luxurious, and comfortable

Take the ideal SUV experience and refine it to become one of the top luxury crossovers on the road. Now take that refined design and start from scratch with all of its successes in mind. This is how you create a vehicle as comfortable, as luxurious, and as intuitive as the 2016 Acura MDX. The interior is simultaneously luxurious and practical, putting your high-tech amenities within arm’s reach.

  • 2016 MDX 2nd and 3rd Row Seats

    Standard Third-Row Seating

    Perhaps the biggest advantage of the MDX is that it’s actually designed to seat up to seven passengers while many luxury crossovers have the third row as an add-on. That means every seat is comfortable for full-size adults, and the cargo space doesn’t suffer when the seats are filled up.

  • Wisconsin Acura Dealers

    Cargo Area

    The 2016 Acura MDX has plenty of cargo room on its own, but sometimes you need to haul something a bit larger or need to load up your kid’s room for college. When that time comes, the MDX has a 50/50 split-folding third row and a 60/40 split-folding second-row to make it easy for you to adapt. Secure tie-downs keep things from shifting around, too.

  • 2016 MDX power tailgate

    Power Tailgate

    It can be tough to juggle the groceries and try to use your keys on the tailgate. With the MDX, you can just press a button on the key fob for the tailgate to open or close automatically. Don’t worry, if it senses it’s bumping against something, it will reverse direction to minimize any damage.

  • Automatic Climate control in 2016 MDX

    Automatic Climate Control

    Get comfortable in the 2016 Acura MDX with its automatic climate control. With three zones, you can keep the rear passengers, front passenger, and driver in their own comfort zones by just setting the temperature and letting the MDX handle the rest.

    On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD)

    Acura leads in the auto technology realm, and they noticed something a few years back: with all of the advances being made in vehicle tech, the dash is going to explode with buttons. Their solution is the On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD), which changes the functions of its buttons on a touchscreen to minimize the number of actual buttons and streamline the look of the dash.

    SMS/Email/Siri Eyes Free

    Using a smartphone behind the wheel is often illegal and always unsafe, but sometimes you need to stay connected. The MDX has SMS and email compatibility, bringing your messages right to the in-vehicle screen. Apple users will appreciate the Siri Eyes Free compatibility that brings that familiar voice to your MDX.


Taking safety to new levels

For many Wisconsin drivers, the 2016 Acura MDX will not be their first MDX. It might not even be their seconds. Families keep choosing this crossover for its luxury and its technology, yes, but its dependability and reputation for safety are integral parts of what make the MDX the MDX. Its safety features make it a good choice for the family on the move.

    Body Structure

    The 2016 Acura MDX was rebuilt from scratch, and the safety considerations started with the frame. Acura started off by thinking about safety and incorporating their Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. The ACE design is meant to redirect accident energy from the cabin area to the other vehicles in a collision and features crumple zones to keep the passenger area secure.

  • Wisconsin Acura Dealers

    Advanced Braking Systems

    Each MDX features a set of four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes as standard. Paired with Electronic Brake Force Distribution, you can trust that the MDX will brake with the right amount of force regardless of the weight distribution in the vehicle. Brake Assist is there to make sure that your anti-lock brakes engage whenever you initiate hard braking (putting that brake pedal to the floor).


  • Stability Assist available in 2016 MDX

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    Vehicle Stability Assist is able to tell where your MDX is headed and compare it to where you are telling it to go. If those directions are the same, then you’re in a good place, but if they are different, the MDX can adjust speed, torque, and throttle position to help stabilize you and keep you on the right path.

  • CollisionSystem

    Collision Mitigation Braking

    With the available AcuraWatch Plus safety features, the MDX can actually keep an eye on safety in case your attention wanders. Collision Mitigation Braking has a radar and camera sensor system that monitors the vehicles in front of you to warn you of potential collisions. If it senses you are on a collision course, it can even directly apply the brakes.

  • Road Departure Mitigation

    Road Departure Mitigation

    MDX models that feature AcuraWatch Plus are able to keep an eye on the side of the road to keep you from going off-road when you don’t want to. If it detects that you are leaving the road and heading for the shoulder or off the pavement, it can alert you and bring your attention back to the road.

  • Child Safety Seat in Rear

    Child Safety

    The 2016 Acura MDX is built for families; it always has been. Featuring LATCH-compliant safety seat anchors makes it easy for you to secure your son or daughter quickly and easily. Front seat sensors can detect when you don’t have an adult and deactivate the airbag to help reduce the risk of injury to a small child, too.
