2022 Acura MDX | Review, Pricing, and Specs
Acura is famed for providing an upscale experience built around high-end powertrains and exceptional interior comfort. The new 2022 Acura MDX is a perfect example of this approach, combining a spacious three-row design with ample power under the hood to produce the flagship of the automaker's SUV range. The 2022 MDX is now available in Coquitlam, British Columbia, and here are the main highlights of this highly desirable vehicle.
Eye-Catching Exterior Design
It's not always easy for a three-row SUV to combine spaciousness with eye-catching design, but the MDX is a handsome vehicle that pairs sleek lines with plenty of reassuring solidity for looks that rise far above the large SUV crowd.
Power Under the Hood
A three-row SUV needs plenty of power under the hood to instill confidence, and the 2022 MDX doesn't disappoint. Even at the entry level there's plenty of performance in reserve, with a 3.5L V6 gas engine pumping out fully 290 horsepower. Smooth handling is assured by the new ten-speed automatic transmission, upgraded from the previous nine-speed model, with a choice between front-wheel and all-wheel drive.
At the higher end of the MDX range things get even more exciting. A 3.0L turbo V6 pushes the ponies up to a huge 355 hp, powering the all-wheel drive with confidence and poise.
Spacious Upscale Interior
The MDX interior immediately shows the vehicle's class with high-end materials throughout, including French-stitched leather, open pore wood, and metallic accents. Up to seven passengers can be seated in the large cabin, although upgrading the second row bench to dual captain's chairs reduces the capacity to six. And lastly, the folding second and third rows create a cargo capacity of up to 1,277L to make the MDX as versatile as it is comfortable.
Infotainment and Technology
Interior technology is a traditional strong point of Acura vehicles, and the MDX definitely lives up to that reputation. A 12.3" infotainment screen is supplied in all models, providing smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus in-built navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot facility, and wireless device charging. The high-end feel is rounded out by a configurable digital instrument gauge nestling behind the steering wheel, conveying essential driving data with a crystal-clear display.
The generous technology levels continue with the suite of advanced active safety and driver assist systems across the MDX range. Key standard and available highlights include: - Forward collision warnings with pedestrian detection and automated emergency braking. - Lane departure warnings and keep assist. - Adaptive cruise control. 2022 Acura MDX Pricing in Coquitlam The base level of the 2022 Acura MDX is available in Canada for $56,045, with trims available at several intermediate price points up to the top-level Platinum Elite model starting at $67,045.
