First Class Second-Row

There’s nothing second rate about the second-row. From its slender exterior, it seems incredible that the MDX could even host a third-row. But it does. With one touch smart slide access, available heated seats and an abundance of legroom, everyone wins.

ACURAWATCH

AcuraWatchTM in MDX

The MDX is the very first SUV in its class to apply a comprehensive suite of innovative driver assistive technologies helping to make it one of the safest 3rd row SUVs.

AcuraWatch: A Standard Above

Our philosophy is simple – help protect everyone. That’s why we’ve implemented the AcuraWatch™ suite of driver assistive technology MDX advance. This includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist and Road Departure Mitigation.

Collision Mitigation Braking System

Distractions happen, so the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ can alert you to obstacles detected ahead. It’s programmed to provide visual alerts when it determines a crash is possible – and if you don’t react, it can brake for you.61

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control53lets you set a desired speed and maintain a set interval between you and the car detected ahead. That way you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic conditions.

Lane Keeping Assist System

Lane Keeping Assist59 uses a forward-facing camera above the rear view mirror to keep the MDX centered in a detected lane. If you begin to drift to the side, it will gently guide the car back to the middle of the lane.

Road Departure Mitigation System

To help your MDX stay on the road, the Road Departure Mitigation System uses a monocular camera to recognize roadways and solid lane lines. If the system detects that the MDX has drifted over road markings it will provide alerts, steering assist and if necessary, braking assist.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System

Engineered for Confidence

The MDX inspires peace of mind with state-of-the-art technology, including multiple cameras and available radar systems. So when something out of the ordinary happens, you’re ready.

ACE Body Structure

The first line of defense in collision safety is in the structure of the car itself. Our Advanced Compatibility EngineeringTM body construction is integrated into every Acura model, including the MDX, to help reduce and disperse forces in front crashes.

Vehicle Stability Assist

In wet conditions, Vehicle Stability AssistTM12 can reduce the dangers of over and under steering and loss of traction by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary, reducing engine power.

Blind Spot Information System

If the MDX detects a vehicle in the next lane’s alert zone while going over 20 MPH, an indicator appears on the side mirror. If you signal in the direction of that vehicle, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.20

Surround View Camera System

Giving drivers the ability to see even more, the new Surround View Camera system delivers an unparalleled vantage point while parking. Four cameras ingeniously positioned around the vehicle assist in uncovering blind spots as well as potential obstacles.

Front & Rear Parking Sensors

Pulling in or reversing out, you’ll experience a heightened sense of your surroundings. Our innovative parking sensors detect when the MDX is getting close to an object or surface with a series of beeps you can hear in the cabin. The beep sounds more rapidly as you get closer

Rear Cross Traffic Monitor

Designed to have your back when you need it most. The Rear Cross Traffic Monitor alerts reversing drivers if another vehicle is approaching from either side. You’ll find it especially helpful when backing out onto a busy street or parking lot.
