Acura is offering a new Sport Hybrid MDX to deliver improved power and control in a more efficient and innovative way.

Acura has created a new addition to the 2017 line-up of MDX models. The new Sport Hybrid MDX will feature a bold design paired with top performance and safety capabilities. Capable of adding 35 horsepower and an additional 7 mpg to city fuel economy, the refreshed Sport Hybrid MDX is better than ever.

Powerful Driving Performance

The exclusive Sport Hybrid powertrain will feature Acura’s innovative three-motor SH-AWD powertrain. It is powered by a 3.0 liter SOHC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management® paired with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The integrated electric motor powers the front wheels and a Twin Motor Unit with two electric motors power the rear wheels. The system is also improved to deliver better straight line performance and a peak output of 325hp which is 35hp higher than the non-hybrid model. Thanks to these updates, drivers will immediately notice greater speed and acceleration with the new model.

Standard Safety Updates

The 2017 MDX Sport Hybrid also offers a remarkable array of safety and advanced technology packages that include the new Active Sport Suspension for improved control and the Integrated Dynamics System that offers custom driving modes including Comfort, Normal, Sport, and Sport+.   The Acura Sport Hybrid MDX will also come standard with AcuraWatch™ technology for enhanced safety thanks to innovative driver assistance programs and lane detection capabilities.   Additionally, the MDX Sport Hybrid will also offer an Electric Parking Brake with Automatic Brake Hold.

Other features that will be available on the 2017 MDX Sport Hybrid include:

  • Auto High Beam headlamps
  • Sirius XM Radio® 2.0
  • Four 2.5amp USB-charging ports
  • Keyless Remote Engine Start
  • Power folding side mirrors

Luxury Comfort and Design

The design of the 2017 Acura Sport Hybrid is as elegant as the model is powerful and innovative. For example, the interior features wide swathes of Olive Ash Burl wood inlays, a heated steering wheel, available second-row captain’s chairs, and an ultra-widescreen Rear Entertainment System with the Advance ENT Package.

There is seemingly no end to the premium comfort, performance, and safety features of the 2017 MDX Sport Hybrid. Drivers who are interested in learning more can follow updates online or speak with a sales representative at Acura Santa Barbara. The 2017 Sport Hybrid MDX will be available at Acura Santa Barbara in late summer of 2016.
