Few three-row SUVs could even dream of attracting the praise-filled reviews of the 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid. With its groundbreaking body and powertrain putting it well ahead of the curve, this all-new model creates a commanding presence while delivering breathtaking efficiency and plenty of family-friendly space. Read on to find out more about the 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid reviews.

Performance and Efficiency

“Vivid powertrain response, great city mpg, even better handling than the standard MDX.” – Car and Driver

Car and Driver perfectly sum up the 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid’s blend of power and efficiency. Combining a 3.5L V6 engine with front motor and rear twin motor unit (TMU), it makes up to 321 hp and 289 lb-ft of torque, enough to achieve zero to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds. At the same time, a sophisticated seven-speed dual-clutch transmission makes up to 26 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway,* which are phenomenal figures for a three-row SUV.

Fittings and Features

“Inside, the ride was serene with minimal road noise and comfortable seats.” – Motor Trend

With available leather seats and an interior wood trim of either Olive Ash Burl or Black Limba, reviews were quick to heap praise on the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid’s interior refinement. Available technology is also strong, with an ultra-wide rear screen entertainment system to keep the kids happy between Wheaton and Westmont and a surround-view camera system when you need to slip into a tight Plainfield or Aurora parking space.

Interior Space

“Aside from the badging, you can’t tell it apart from its sibling.” – Automobile Magazine

The team over at Automobile Magazine was impressed by the Acura MDX Sport Hybrid’s ability to deliver hybrid efficiency without making the sacrifices you might expect from such a vehicle.

Painstaking design work went into making that possible, with the chassis customized to fit power units under the seats. As a result, you’ll still enjoy the exceptional dimensions of the regular Acura MDX, including up to 90.9 cubic feet of cargo space.

The 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid Offers Everything You Could Ask For
