What's New for the 2018 Acura MDX?
With an exterior refresh and other updates in 2017, the MDX enters the new model year with just a few changes. Most notably, the infotainment system has been updated across the lineup and now includes a dual-screen system with smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The new system has an 8-inch display paired with a 7-inch touchscreen and has been updated to work 30 percent faster than last year's system.
Acura MDX Trims and Features
Acura tends to release just one trim of each model, which can then be upgraded with a range of options packages. This allows you to truly customize your SUV with the features you want. In addition to the new infotainment system, the base model of the MDX is equipped with four USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, an eight-speaker audio system, satellite radio, a moonroof, and the Siri Eyes Free app.
The Technology package replaces the standard 18-inch wheels with 20-inch versions and adds a premium 10-speaker audio system, navigation, and HD radio along with additional safety features that include rear cross-traffic alert and a system that monitors your blind spot.
If you choose the Advance package, you'll enjoy premium leather upholstery, climate-controlled front seats, heated captain's chairs in the second row, and a heated steering wheel.
The Entertainment package is available when you choose either the Technology or the Advance package. It comes with additional speakers and a rear-screen entertainment system with HDMI compatibility and a choice of two screen sizes.
The 2018 MDX is available with either a second-row bench or captain's chairs (which lower passenger capacity to six). You'll have 15 cubic feet of cargo space to work with, which expands to 68 cubic feet with the seats folded flat.
2018 Acura MDX drivers will enjoy the 290 horses provided by the standard V6 paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. You'll get an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway miles per gallon, better than most class rivals. The SUV delivers sporty handling and impressive agility whether you opt for the front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel-drive model.
The 2018 Acura MDX has received a five-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration. All trims include both a rearview camera and the AcuraWatch suite of advanced driver assistance features. Active lane keep assist helps keep you from swerving into another lane, while road departure mitigation keeps you from going off the road if you lose control of the vehicle. Adaptive cruise control allows you to maintain a safe following distance at any speed.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Acura TLX invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Acura TLX MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
