Long Island City Acura MDX | Queens Used Car Dealer
The pre-owned Acura MDX remains a top expert recommendation for a family-friendly luxury crossover SUV. Comfort, flexibility, and elegance are effortlessly seen in all generations of the MDX; the second- and third-generation models can also add driving excitement to the list, holding their own against some of the biggest names in the luxury performance market. The inaugural Acura MDX was birthed before the designation “crossover” had even been conceived of; this midsize MDX proved its superiority in the car-based luxury SUV class by showcasing a standard third row of seats which disappeared into the cargo floor when necessary, revealing a vast cargo hold. The second-generation MDX sustained that family-oriented branding but amped up the design, performance, and responsiveness. The current, third-generation MDX decided that excellence did not need to be radically improved upon, and instead settle for small modifications and additions.
The Acura MDX is a midsize luxury SUV that seats seven, with a welcoming interior cabin. The first-generation Acura MDX made its appearance in 2001 and offered a 240 horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 with an all-wheel-drive system. Three rows of seats were standard, and as with all Acuras, the list of included features is impressive. Highlights included leather seating, a sunroof, a power tailgate, satellite radio, a rearview camera and Bluetooth phone connectivity. Optional highlights included a navigation system, an active sports suspension, and adaptive cruise control. The second-generation Acura MDX debuted for 2007, and the model ushered in updated design – including the now infamous corporate grille – as well as a six-speed transmission, hard-drive-based navigation system and a multi-angle back-up camera for tricky parking in New York. The latest generation is running on a 3.5-liter V6 which generates 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, partnered with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is a new standard, and all-wheel drive is optionally available.
A single, well-equipped trim level has been offered, with progressively premium features packages. Standard features include a power liftgate, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Electronics features include a multi-angle rearview camera, Bluetooth phone connectivity and an eight-speaker sound system with a CD player, a Pandora radio interface and satellite radio. The Technology package presents you with a navigation system and voice controls, and the Entertainment package adds a rear-seat DVD entertainment system. Reviews of the Acura MDX call it a polished performer, and one of the more enjoyable luxury crossovers to drive.
