MDX Sport Hybrid

Reviewing the 2019 Acura MDX, wrote that: “With three rows of seating and a large, comfortable cabin, it works great as a family hauler.” You might expect a vehicle with up to 90.9 cubic feet of cargo space and seating for seven across 3 rows to feel a little sluggish and offer substandard efficiency scores, but the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid pushes beyond such limitations.

  • 3.0L Port-Injected V6 Gas Engine: Delivers up to 257 hp and 218 lb-ft of torque.
  • Electric Motors: A 47 hp, 109 lb-ft of torque front motor and 36 hp, 54 lb-ft of torque Dual Rear Motors provide additional power and enhanced performance.

Those two systems combine to provide a combined output of up to 289 hp and 289 lb-ft of torque, so the Acura hybrid SUV feels refreshingly responsive whether you’re taking off from a standstill or changing lanes on the highway.

It also tows up to 5,000 lbs. and makes up to 26 mpg in the city and 27 mpg* on the highway.
