Get up-to-date and accurate information about the 2014 Acura MDX. This 6-speed sports utility vehicle offers a powerful VTEC V6 engine and luxurious interiors. Fuel economy is a big improvement over last year’s model.
The all-new 2014 Acura MDX is a strong competitor among midsize luxury crossovers. While the previous MDX models can already shake up the market with its powerful performance and fine interiors, the 2014 release offers even more to behold for the modern driver.
It is smaller, lighter and more fuel efficient. Yet the reduction in size and horsepower has little effect on its ability to get you places faster and still in comfort and style.
One of the highlights of the 2014 redesign is the improved center stack. The much-critiqued version last year had over 40 buttons which led to a lot of confusion for users. This year, it gets a big upgrade with a simpler 7-inch touch screen, which still addresses all of its predecessor’s functions, but with a cleaner and more modern look for the dash.
Acura also took big steps to reduced engine noise and reinforced front and side windows with acoustic glass, making the drive more tranquil.
Taking the best of what the model is already known for and combining it with all the big improvements for this year’s release, , the 2014 Acura MDX continues to be one of the more enjoyable crossovers to drive.
The 2014 Acura MDX is 40 mm longer that last year’s model while the wheel base is up by 70mm. It is also 38mm lower than the previous MDX and 32mm narrower. The changes in dimensions make a lighter vehicle to drive with a weight reduction of 131kg over the 2013 release.
Ground clearance has also been reduced by 22mm, making it easier to get on and off the vehicle.
Other plus points for this vehicle’s handsome profile are the 18-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, heated mirrors and power liftgate. Automatic LED headlamps have replaced last year’s Xenon HID units.
